I really dont see why the way someone dresses is of any concern to anyone else. So what if someone has a "goth" style or "emo" style and hasn't listened to alot of that particular genre (the whole genre labeling thing being pretty pointless too, but I wont get into that). So now someone has to be an expert on the genre before they can get into that specific type of music? seriously, listen to the music you want, dress how you want, and let others do the same. stop putting so much energy into what other people are doing and start putting it into your own life, and relating to other people rather than critisizing them.
What you've done becomes the judge of what you're going to do -- especially in other people's minds. When you're traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don't have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.
