Default Goth culture under fire over school shooting

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/14092006/...nds-goths.html

frankly, i think this is retarded. i don't know if there were any posts about this earlier, i searched and didn't find anything. but anyhoo, it kills me that the media has to bring up a goth themed website that this asshat happened to post on. its just like the columbine bull**** with marilyn manson. stop it. websites don't kill people. music doesn't kill people. if i were to go on a rampage tommorow, im sure MB would be in the news, because it was the music that made me do it.

That is pretty stupid. Trying to draw links between a website and the behaviour of someone who happens to frequent that website is pretty absurd. I mean, personally I think that anyone who would want their picture on a site called "vampirefreaks" is probably an idiot, but it's not like joining the site made them go out and kill people.

even though manson is industrialized heavy rock. goth no.
and being goth would ahve nothing to do with killing someone, anyone can school shoot.

i see that, just saying they dubbed the bands work "goth" when it was all going down. it just doesn't sound the same if you say "these kids were killing people because a industrialzed heavy rock band made them". the word goth scares people.

and thanks for posting the site muzak.
