Not at all. I don't believe in the term "emo", and anyone who comes out and openly says they are "emo" and they hurt themselves is just lying about it. Pain is pain, and it's not something toi admit to the world for publicity. Nearly all of my Friends do cut themselves because they hate the way they look, and come to school and begin to sob in my arms. People who joke about the "emo kids" are cruel, and I have no respect for them.
