To piggy back off of @milamonstrosity previous post . I used to get made fun so freaking heavy about this same thing . I was called weird, VAMPIRA (spellcheck , vampire in Spanish) emo , grunge. My hair was never accepted. I was told not to tell people I listened to screamo & certain bands. Folks would taunt me . One of my track coaches referred to me as "hair on the face". Told I was going to hell etc . Same folks ask for fashion advice and places to buy these "popular clothes" this shit isn't an aesthetic . It is what it is . Regardless if I'm wearing pink or black. My heart and spirit is still the same . Fuck respectability and your social norms.
