  1. I am all for light satire or parody about Goths if done well (some episodes of Family Guy did this very well), but that shirt is just dumb.

  2. FYI Jessica.

    Modern day Goths =/= historical Goth peoples. Who is and is not a modern day “Goth” (as per the actual subculture that grew out the people that loved morose “post punk” music and punkish and dark & drape-y rocker-gypy-ish fashion, loving magery from old b&w horror movies and loved bats, spiders and crows and “spooky stuff” from the 80’s 90’s and 00’s to now) is broad and very subjective, because there are more off-shoots now.

    That shirt/meme is stupid attempt at a joke to declare “Goths” are not real because they aren’t 100% re-creations of 5th~9th century germanic Gothic peoples (whom supposedly didn’t where black garments) is really dumb. For a “Geek” how about be more understanding of those that fall outside of the “norm”.
