Greetings people...Lady Paradox here. I'm a Wiccan ethnic goth, a bit extreme I know but hey we can't help who we are?! I'm a fashion major in Detroit, largely into rock, punk, and goth. I signed up hoping to meet like minded people and make a few friends. So let the chatting begin:-)
I have a metric fuck-ton of questions to ask you but I will start with the basics. Does Atheism mean that one doesn't believe in God and other deities or does it mean that one simply doesn't believe in the bureaucracy of organized religion?
WoW! Check you guys out:-) Felicia I'll inbox you the info momentarily and to answer Chris Asrk-Paaddanc's question, I would have to agree with Felicia 100%. About myself however, I would have to say I almost fall in line with Felicia again. I am what you call a perky goth mixed with a corporate goth, the only difference is that I ride motorcycles so I have a sort of punk feel sometimes. As I said I'm a fashion student and I mostly make business goth wear. I feel like you should be you no matter where you are. Like she said, mostly you will see me in jeans and tees but always in my steel toe boots. Goth clothes are really expensive but it doesnt take much to find what you like...places like a vintage store, the salvation army, or even hobby shops can turn your favorite outfit into a goth assemble:-)
Yeah. I apologize for commandeering your conversation thread like that but I had to ask Chris about this subject. I'm deeply interested in it. Mainly because all I get from other Atheists is "God doesn't exist." Which is all well and good to me but what I want to know is why Atheists believe that. And Chris here seems well rounded enough to articulate his viewpoint rather than just quoting Webster's Dictionary.
There's nothing really to balance. I live work and play just any other person. The only real difference that I have over most people is my clothing and tastes in music.
Luckily I have a job where as long as the clothing we wear is not revealing or is out of code with OSHA I can dress however I choose.
My family has no issues with me being a goth actually they encourage and sometime experiment with it themselves. The only cause for any real concern was when there were a few muggings and beatings of a few goths around town. Other than that no one I've ever interacted with had a serious problem. Some people are like " I don't see the point but if it makes you happy then, great" while others think I'm the best thing since fried ice cream.
