Actually, emo stands for emotional, and that emotional is short for emotionally unstable, meaning someone saying 'boo' or even 'hi' will make them start crying, and they need to go to a mental asylum, THIS is the definition from doctors~ why is it so popularly confused? e w e
"Emotional" isn't the same as (or even short for) "emotionally unstable". Feeling emotions is human, but being unable to control those emotions is a problem not linked to the "emo" label. Being emotionally unstable also doesn't necessarily mean a sufferer randomly bursts into tears over nothing, as there are a wide range of symptoms on varying degrees of severity, or that they need to be banged up in an asylum (asylums are reserved generally for mentally unstable people who may pose a risk to society, which doesn't usually apply to the emotionally unstable). The "emo" label is nothing to do with that: it emerged a decade or so ago, with the name usually cited to refer to the listening of music that contains emotional lyrics - a lot of social labels stem from music genres in this way. A "moody" persona may often come with being an "emo", but it doesn't have to - it's more about the mutual sharing of a clothing and hairstyle (as this stamp portrays), as well as similar music, styles of art, etc.
So nobody's confusing a doctor's definition of "emotionally unstable" with the social "emo" label, because they're entirely different things. c:
