It makes me sad (sorry to rant but...)

It makes me sad when people judge people by the type of music they like or the way they look, and yes to a certain point I agree, the music you listen to and the way you dress yourself contribute the kind of person you are and the way you express yourself, but this does only go to a point.
The bands I like are MCR (obviously), Green Day, LostAlone, Say Anything, Florence + The Machine and lots more, but its a long list. I guess I wear black and eyeliner, and I guess I should expect people to give me shit for it, but it just makes me sick that people think that they could know someone from just looking at them.
OMG YOU LIKE MCR! YOU'RE EMO! SO UNCOOL! (someone actually said that to me once.)
Cool? What even is cool? Cool is elitist and not worth worrying about.
The truth is I know the words to all Disney songs of all time, a bit of a language and english nerd, im obsessed with art and might be social awkward and quiet if I don't know you too well, but I'm a dorky, happy girl! Really!
And it applies to the opposite end of the spectrum. I don't like 1D or Justin Beiber, but you shouldn't give anyone shit for liking them. It makes you just as bad as the others. Justin Beiber or 1D fans aren't all girly girls incapable of an intelligent thought.
I'm really sorry to rant, but I felt this just needed to be said. <3
