    So this girl I've started dating wants me to come to an "alternative goth club with attached bondage room" on Thursday.

    I'm not really sure if I want to go. Goth clubs aren't really my scene, and while I'm into bondage I'm afraid the people at the club will be more hardcore than I am.

    On the other hand, hot girl wants me to go to bondage room.

    In old country, we have saying. That saying is, "Sdelaite ego, trus."

    This roughly translates to, "DO IT FAGGOT."

    You should give it a try. What's the worst that can happen?

    I don't act like my usual confident self and she stops dating me?

    There aren't many situations that make me uncomfortable, but going into a goth club without being familiar with goth culture is one of them. In social situations like that, I tend to shut down and become kind of timid.

    On the other hand, not going could accomplish the same thing, so...

    If it makes you feel better, there's really not any such thing as "goth" culture beyond dressing in black.

    Unless we're talking about actual ethnic goths, it totally is. Who is and who is not a goth is determined by who does and does not call themselves "goth".

    Isn't this true for any social group that isn't a club or something? I mean, it's not like punks pay membership dues or anything.

    Well, I guess there's also death metal. But even labelling that as "gothic" is completely arbitrary and ambiguous.

    Right, except at a goth club, there are going to be a lot of people who call themselves goths that do the same thing. Piercings, tattoos, not just black clothes but a specific style of clothing, makeup; these are all things that goths have/wear that I don't. There's definitely a sense of "who's more hardcore", even if it's not vocalized. That's the issue; I'm far from hardcore gothwise. I'll be a little more comfortable in the bondage room, though, so who knows.

    I just told her I'd come, so we'll see what it's like.

    The word goth means something to those who are goths or to those improperly being labeled as goths who do not appreciate being labeled as such.

    It doesn't mean anything from an etic perspective when you're ignorant to the differences between subcultures.

    There is nothing that defines the word "goth" in an objective sense. Therefore it means whatever it is attached to. And from what I can see, the only common denominator between everyone that is labeled or labels themselves "goth" is wearing black.
