Last week, on my lunch break at a caf I haunt (no pun intended) within walking distance of work, I spied a couple of young goths a few tables away from mine.

Well, it is weird to see someone who is 30+ and a goth but I believe it is weird because we are repeatedly told that it is. Who says that we have to turn to invisible blobs of beige once we pass the certain age? That is bullshit!
But it is kind off sad to see someone who is 30+ in ripped fishnet and smudged makeup, it looks like desperately holding on to fading youth. I believe that everyone can look fabulously goth at any age, and that being over 30 opens up the whole new and more elegant goth styles palette that would look tragically funny on someone in their early 20's. My point being: Don't stop being goth just evolve your style with age and you will always look perfect!
