The gothic lifestyle is actually rather new. This means that a person usually dresses and all black. They have pale skin and they usually dye their hair dark black. Sometimes the Gothic women will wear heavy makeup. I think that the gothic lifestyle is shunned in our society because people fear that they are part of a witchcraft group or cult and they fear that their life is in danger.
Society does not like anything that goes against the norm and this type of lifestyle goes against the norm for the most part. However I believe that people should live their life style however they want to as long as they’re not hurting anyone. The gothic lifestyle will probably be around for a long time.
