And what you are describing is a typical developmental task of adolescence- that of exploring who one wants to become, and of questioning all that one has been raised with. It is not unique to this generation-witness the flappers of the 20's (showing ankles was SCANDALOUS back then) and all the way through the 40's and 50's, and of course the 60's with the long hair and outrageous clothing. Every generation has to have their own mark, and goth is no exception. I will grant you that there are some who identify with goth who are pathological-depressed, self mutilating, etc., but you can't characterize all of them as pathological.
