Honestly, I don't believe people hate the kids that have the actual personality of an emo kid. I think the general hatred is generated at what are called the scene kids, the ones who ACT like they are emo. This is just from my point of view though as the terms were used alot in High School last year before I graduated. I guess you could say the real emo kids weren't really ragged on. The scene kids were basically hated by everyone.
I think everyone just doesn't realize that most of your "emo" kids are just acting that way for attention.
The only way to take pain out of death is to take love out of life.
