I, myself am a teenager and considered a 'goth'(i don't classify because I am just me). I believe that in a way it is a form of rebellion against society which won't affect either health (self-mutilation is just as common in teenage 'neds' as in the gothic community) or education. It's also a form of being an individual and finding who you are. Some teens don't want to conform to the 'normality' of society but at the same time (thought they hate to admit it) they do need that group of similar people- hence why these 'darker' people seek similar teenagers after school but they can at the same time give the image of solitude when being an individual during other times. Hope that helps getting a teens point of view.
