I wondered about that, too. I thought maybe somebody took a real list and added to it for making-fun purposes.

That sounds likely.

Actually, apparently it’s gone up to seconed highest.

I don’t black is a depressing colour, I like black.

I like it, too. But that’s not really the issue here, is it? The list, whether it is genuine, bogus or a bit of both, isn’t really just about kids (or grownups) who merely like black.

If you notice, the items on the list gradually get sillier, going from the more genuine end of the spectrum like

-Listens to gothic or any other anti-social genres of music.
-Shows an increasing interest in death, vampires, magic, the occult, witchcraft or anything else that involves Satan.
-Cuts, burns or partakes in any other method of self-mutilation.

to

-Eats goth-related foods. Count Dracula cereal is an example of this.
-Makes Satanic symbols and/or violently shakes head to music.
-Wears pins, stickers or anything else that contains these various phrases:

I don’t think there’s anything to worry about if your child wears black, there’s more important things like how they act.

Yes, Nameless. I think that’s why the list—read the paragraph at the top—suggests that parents worry if their child displays “five or more” of these characteristics. I don’t think even the fairly clueless people who wrote this list (I’m that assuming part of it is genuine), think that wearing black alone—even if the kid also eats Count Chocula cereal wink—is enough to justify calling out the psychiatrist.

On the other hand, I wouldn’t recommend waiting around to find four more if the kid likes to make himself bleed.

I have over half of those thing, does that mean I should go to a mental hospital because Satan is possessing my soul?
And whats wrong with goths? half these things either all teenagers do or have nothing to do with being a goth.
