After a year of YouTubing I've found myself in a odd situation. On a daily basis, people were coming to me to find out whether they're a goth or not. This baffled me. How do you not know?! I didn't know how to react to that - Firstly, who the hell am I? It's not for me to tell you who you are. That's something you find on your journey. In addition to that, I came of age during a time where there was never a question as to who you were or where you stood. You had your ground and your heels dug firmly in place and could say 'I don't subscribe to any labels!' or 'I'm a Punk - Through and though!' or 'I'm Goth'. Either way, we found out through navigating through the natural course of life. Meeting people, going to shows, going to clubs, leafing through flyers for events, discovering new music and finding our sound and not once did we feel the need to ask because there was nothing there to confuse us or lead us astray. Not like today that is. So, I never answered the question.
So finally, after much prodding and kind of losing my shit as per protocol with me it seems as I approached my breaking point, I decided to address it...In a 17 minute long video. The first part of it replying to a video by SnowyLowther where I could address the parts of her video that I disagreed with, the second part reacting to the general state of social media and the cause for confusion. If you've got time to kill, this is a video that spawned like 20 response videos and pissed a lot of people.
