So I have been researching about Goths for an idea. However, the more I researched the more I found that my tastes clothing, music, interests etc overlapped.
So I have ASD and I am Goth. Apparently.
Anyone else found an overlap. I quite like the idea of being Goth. Despite my age.
I think some of the aspects of being a goth probably suit people on the spectrum quite well.
I personally hate all the different groups and fashions that there are. I just think people should be able to dress as they please, listen to what it is they like etc.
I know some people like being part of these "groups" and that is great. I just found it so hard at school with all the different groups that I didn't fit into. Clothes are a big sensory issue for me and they've never fit into what is fashionable or acceptable even in other groups like goths. I see it now with children I work with and think why, why do we feel we have to confirm this way.
Sorry to get so negative on your post. It is just something I feel strongly about. Nothing against goths are people that want to dress that way.
