Conforming is dressing TO LOOK Goth. I happen to look goth because I like the fashion. I don't try to look Goth, I just prefer black over other colours, chains over none. It's all personal preference. I sure as hell don't do it to fit in, I hang out with the preps of my school The goths of my school fit the stereotype you're describing.

Again, your assuming I dress to REPRESENT a crowd.

I'd actually say hey to both, and just judge which seemed nicer / more eager to speak.

What's with all these stereotypes? What ever happened to people being people? Sorry, I've just outgrown stereotypes. They're pointless. Chains are comfy to me, if I wear track pants, I feel uncomfortable. It all comes down to personal preference.

Who's the more intelligent person, the one who dresses the way they do because THEY like it, and THEY find it comfy.
Or the person who dresses specifically so people won't look at them, or think they're weird.

C'mon, have some fun in life, what's fun AT ALL in blending in with a crowd?

I've literally had four people above the age of 60 compliment me on my mohawk and asking how I keep it up. They found me easily approachable. They didn't see a goth, they saw a person. Grow up a little in your perception of people. It'll change your attitudes toward those who're different ;D
