I do not claim to represent the true, correct, objective or definitive answer about Goth. It would be impossible to do so because of its ambiguity, the many differences of opinion and conflicting information, as well as the measure of individual interpretation and creation that is essential to Goth. Keep in mind that any generalizations made about Goth are likely to never be entirely correct. There are many statements made here which should be prefaced by "Most Goths," "My observation leads me to believe," or "As a general tendency." Because I have omitted those qualifiers from the text, do not assume that any statement made is universally true.
