The way I see it, if it (it being in this case 'gothic', I suppose) is who you really are and what you feel comfortable identifying as, then you shouldn't let other people turn you away from it. They can't know how you feel about that certain thing, and if it's really you, I doubt it's even possible for others to change who you are. So, what's the point in letting it get to you?
But to take into account what was said in the previous comment by this lovely gentleman (I'm assuming?), gemiam, I agree with him (or her?) at least somewhat. Truth is, you're going to get hate no matter what or who you are. Be it the way you dress, your taste in music, your religion... Someone's going to hate you for it. And Sadie (I think that's what your name is, though not completely certain), I do have to say, you hate Nicki Minaj and that Bieber boy, so I can honestly say without you being able to deny it, we ALL do it. We all at least dislike some people for what they are or rather, what they CHOOSE to be.
I'm not entirely sure if I'm still making sense. It's been a long week.
And by the way, gemiam, if you happen to still come by here and read this, I am very sorry those things happened to you, and for what happened to your sister. I am so very sorry.
(Aside from that, you're half Russian? I live in Finland! I know you probably don't live in Russia but hello half-neighbor anyway!)
