Can anyone explain gothism?


I thought it was a clothing fad of the 80's, but recently I've learned there's more to it.

    Thanks for a very thorough and detailed desccription of goth culture (not gothism). It sounds like Wuthering Heights! I definitely associate goth with the music and often confuse goths with the heavy metal crowd. I appreciate the clarification.

    Thank you for an interesting look at both sides of the coin. A label can certainly make a person feel like they "belong" to a certain group.

    I appreciate your experience with your daughter. It's so difficult to decide whether a fashion is appropriate or not for our children!
