      You're a goth if 5 or more are applicable to you on the list

      I saw this somewhere and its supposed to be an actual note sent to some person from a catholic/christian church. By their standards, you are a goth if you apply to 5 or more of the things listed. Here's the letter.

      "If Your Child is a Gothic, Reform Through the Lord!

      Listed below are some warning signs to indicate if your child may
      have gone astray from the Lord.

      Gothic (or goth) is a very obscure and often dangerous culture that
      young teenagers are prone to participating in. The gothic culture
      leads young, susceptible minds into an imagined world of evil, darkness,
      and violence. Please seek immediate attention through counselling,
      prayer, and parental guidance to rid your child of Satan's temptations if
      five or more of the following are applicable to your child:

      -Frequently wears black clothing.

      -Wears band and/or rock t-shirts.

      -Wears excessive black eye makeup, lipstick or nailpolish.

      -Wears any odd, silver jewelry or symbols. Some of these include:
      reversed crosses, pentagrams, pentacles, ankhs or various other
      Satanic worshipping symbols.

      -Shows an interest in piercings or tattoos.

      -Listens to gothic or any other anti-social genres of music. (Marilyn
      Manson claims to be the anti-Christ, and publicly speaks against the
      Lord. Please discard any such albums IMMEDIATELY.)

      -Associates with other people that dress, act or speak eccentrically.

      -Shows a declining interest in wholesome activities, such as: the
      Bible, prayer, church or sports.

      -Shows an increasing interest in death, vampires, magic, the occult,
      witchcraft or anything else that involves Satan.

      -Takes drugs.

      -Drinks alcohol.

      -Is suicidal and/or depressed.

      -Cuts, burns or partakes in any other method of self-mutilation.
      (This is a Satanic ritual that uses pain to detract from the light of God
      and His love. Please seek immediate attention for this at your local
      mental health center.)

      -Complains of boredom.

      -Sleeps too excessively or too little.

      -Is excessively awake during the night.

      -Dislikes sunlight or any other form of light. (This pertains to
      vampires promoting the idea that His light is of no use.)

      -Demands an unusual amount of privacy.

      -Spends large amounts of time alone.

      -Requests time alone and quietness. (This is so that your chid may
      speak to evil sprits through meditation.)

      -Insists on spending time with friends while unaccompanied by an
      adult.

      -Disregards authority figures; teachers, priests, nuns and elders are
      but a few examples of this.

      -Misbehaves at school.

      -Misbehaves at home.

      -Eats excessively or too little.

      -Eats goth-related foods. Count Dracula cereal is an example of this.

      -Drinks blood or expresses an interest in drinking blood. (Vampires
      believe this is how to attain Satan. This act is very dangerous and
      should be stopped immediately.)

      -Watches cable television or any other corrupted media sources. (Ask
      your local church for proper programs that your child may watch.)

      -Plays videos games that contains violence or role-playing nature.

      -Uses the internet excessively and frequently makes time for the
      computer.

      -Makes Satanic symbols and/or violently shakes head to music.

      -Dances to music in a provocative or sexual manner.

      -Expresses an interest in sex.

      -Masturbates

      -Is homosexual and/or bisexual.

      -Pursues dangerous cult religions. Such include: Satanism,
      Scientology, Philosophy, Paganism, Wicca, Hinduism and Buddhism.

      -Wears pins, stickers or anything else that contains these various
      phrases: "I'm so gothic, I'm dead", "woe is me", "I'm a goth".

      -Claims to be a goth.

      If five or more of these apply to your child, please intervene
      immediately. The gothic culture is dangerous and Satan thrives within
      it. If any of these problems persist, enlist your child into your
      local mental health center.

      3. Complains of boredom.
      -Not gonna touch that...

      -Ever heard of narcolepsy, mononucleosis, or other sleeping disorders? Ever heard of insomnia, or college?

      5. Spends large amounts of time alone.

      6. Requests time alone and quietness. (This is so that your chid may
      speak to evil sprits through meditation.)
      -Hang on, let me consult my medium on that one...

      7. Insists on spending time with friends while unaccompanied by an

      haha i scored a 17. i suppose it is time for my daily sacrificial lamb ceremony. you see i go to the store and buy lamb chops and count chocula... then i put it all into a bowl and dance around it in a provocative and sexual manner while violently shaking my head to the music so i can better communicate with my lord and savior lucifer... and above all this i express an interest in sex... the ultimate no-no. everyone knows, from the pope down to the alter boy, that sex is the worst thing in the world and we would all be a lot better off if nobody had sex, ever again.

      I love how they call cable a "corrupted media source."
      What they mean is: Only allow Fox News and other right wing channels to be watched in your home.

      Well I scored a pretty 19. That was nice. Reading through some of this reminds me of the book 1984 just the way it comes across for me: You must not have any interest in sex. You must not be an abnormality in society. You must fit a group and not stray from it, but not associate with it. Kind of funny. I'm no goth, and I'm a rather upbeat person. Crazy people and their crazy lists.

      Uses the internet excessively and frequently makes time for the
      computer. [/b]
      That makes me laugh. Computers are unholy objects people! They educate you, provide you with alsorts of fun stuff to do which, surprisingly, alleviates boredom which is apparently another gothic thing...Beat that holy one

      Oh God forbid anyone gets bored, we may begin to speak in tongues and summon Satan to our side for a quick game of "decapitated head" pong.
