No it isn't. Why is this idea so hard to understand? Just because you personally don't like it, does not mean someone can only be doing it to piss you off. I've dressed goth style since discovering metal aged 13. I wasn't hanging out with other metal heads at the time. I just liked that style, and since I'd recently gone through a "Matrix" phase, and liked wearing black since childhood, it came naturally. And yes, there's certain things that are important and about which parents have to make kids' choices for them. How you dress is not one of them.
