Not really a cryptic post, but I still felt I needed to say it

Realizing (again!) that people can still be awful, close-minded, exclusionary jerks and still like things I do is exasperating, frustrating, and makes me want to shake them until the idea of empathy enters their hairspray-filled skulls. 

In case it wasn’t ABUNDANTLY clear: I support folks of any gender, sexuality, ethnicity, or religion, as long as they treat other people with respect and kindness. I don’t care if you think you’re the gothiest, most uber-cool creature undead or alive; what’s important is how you treat people.

If you don’t like a person for whatever reason, whatever, everyone is allowed to have their own opinions. However, having an opinion is VASTLY different from spewing hateful, hurtful language everywhere.

And if you look to the right, you'll see the deathrock tag, where we can see drama being stirred up. It must be the season - deathrockers are known to get slightly rowdy as fall draws closer. No flash photography, please.

If you’re into shit like this and think this is what deathrock is, you disgust me.

I think people can do what they want, but I don’t really like how the deathrock revival added a bunch of colors and made Deathrock look so…”Avril Lavigne Punk”.

You two are unbelievable. Here, have some pictures of old school goths and deathrockers wearing colours:

Somebody who was actually around to see the 1980’s California deathrock scene wearing more purple than the woman you two are talking shit about: 

A picture of somebody from an original deathrock band wearing neon hair and something other than variations of the Siouxsie eye:

A picture of Siouxsie herself wearing green with the only black being her hair and necklace:

A picture of Siouxsie from the old days wearing red with a touch of black: 

A picture of Johnny Slut wearing either mostly dark grey or mostly navy blue depending on how your monitor is calibrated:

A picture of the guys from Sex Gang Children wearing various colours: 

Look at how many colours these people are wearing, these people who were actually around to see, or participate in the very scene you two likely feel that it is your duty to defend. Look at how few colours the woman you two wouldn’t even have courage to bash if she was standing right in front of you is wearing. Maybe if you look that them long enough you will see how completely foolish you two are being.

As for ‘not reeaaal deaffrawk/looks like Avril!’ have another picture of Johnny Slut wearing a very similar outfit, just with flatter shoes: 

And various pictures of oldschool deathrockers nowadays meeting up with revivalists and loving it, giving as few fucks about monochrome fashions and Avril Lavigne as you both should:

Don’t bother messaging me with your edited versions of the history of the movement tailored to suit your own opinions, or any flaming either. It will not change how completely ridiculous both of you look saying shit like this.

^Deserving of ETERNAL LOVE.

Wait, wait. There are people trying to claim that deathrockers/batcavers/Olde Skool Goffs didn’t wear COLOR? There enough things in the Goth subculture for people to work themselves into a ridiculous tizzy over? Knock it off, kids, don’t make your Auntie Jilli turn this internet around and GROUND YOU FOREVER. With no wi-fi, even.

These make me feel that I need to do more modifications to the Deathrock Victorian blazer sitting in the wardrobe. It’s too subtle right now. Should I use pink, red, or gray thread for embroidering the stitches on it?

Hello gorgeous deathrock-y creature. You are very decorative.

Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren’t of snow white
Dreams of war
Dreams of lies

Hee! I love this. I may make it one of my options for my desktop background.
Also, even tho’ only ONE person will get this (and no, not explaining to the rest of you): Oh how wrong we were to think that immortality meant never dying.

This was my look for Hive on Sunday…cartoon-corpse-color-palette and deathrocky tatters, yes please.

If you can’t decide if you feel more jealous or in love…

Oh good heavens, I see that some of you just recently discovered the photo of me from 1993. Yes, I had REALLY BIG HAIR. There are times when I miss the REALLY BIG HAIR. Oooh, maybe I should do that for the Love Your DJ - Fundraiser for DJ Wednesday event that I’m going to be at on Saturday night! 

(Portland folks! Come to this!)

Well, hello there, Johnny Slut. You always were terribly decorative.

As a service to recovering Goths, DeathRockers should not look so damn good. >:(
