Gothic Lolita
Emilie Autumn Lyrics


How old are you?
I'm older than you'll ever be
I've been dead a thousand years
And lived only two or three
I don't mind telling you
My life was ended by your hand
The kind of murder where nobody dies
But I don't suppose you'd understand

If I am Lolita
Then you are a criminal
And you should be killed
By an army of little girls
The law won't arrest you
The world won't detest you
You never did anything
Any man wouldn't do

I'm Gothic Lolita
And you are a criminal
I'm not even legal
I'm just a dead little girl
But ruffles and laces
And candy sweet faces
Directed your furtive hand
I perfectly understand
So it's my fault?
No, Gothic Lolita

Thank you, kind sirs
You've made me what I am today
A bundle of broken nerves
A mouthful of words
I'm still afraid to say
I don't mind telling you
Now that I'm old enough to love
I couldn't begin to even if
My pretty life depended on it
And funny thing, it does

If I am Lolita
Then you are a criminal
And you should be killed
By an army of little girls
The law won't arrest you
The world won't detest you
You never did anything
Any man wouldn't do

I'm Gothic Lolita
And you are a criminal
I'm not even legal
I'm just a dead little girl
But ruffles and laces
And candy sweet faces
Directed your furtive hand
I perfectly understand
So it's my fault?
No, Gothic Lolita

I am your sugar
I am your cream
I am your anti-American dream

I am your sugar
I am your cream
I am your worst nightmare
Now scream

If I am Lolita
Then you are a criminal
And you should be killed
By an army of little girls
The law won't arrest you
The world won't detest you
You never did anything
Any man wouldn't do

I'm Gothic Lolita
And you are a criminal
I'm not even legal
I'm just a dead little girl
But ruffles and laces
And candy sweet faces
Directed your furtive hand
I perfectly understand
So it's my fault?
No, Gothic Lolita

I'm not going to stop thinking that way.
nothing you do or say can change that.

if you have bad experiences with a certain person,regarding gender,age,race etc
then you will automatically grow to think negatively about them.

if that offends you, too bad.

You cannot stop someone from thinking something or feeling a certain way about something

Get over it & deal with it.

As some one who used to be a fan of the subculture I know that it can be a very sexualized and toxic subculture fashion like Kodona I don't really know when I discovered the scene...but when I was aware of the term LOLITA it was around 2014... When I was sixteen( I might have seen it in anime like Shugo Chara or Fruit Basket)
In the anime/manga cosplay community people tend to dress in "LOLITA" .....
At first I thought it was a cosplay thing.....till I discovered the visual kei band( which became my favorite) Malice Mizer....the leader of the band Mana was dressed in " LOLITA" ...I realized overtime that it was a fashion scene.....I liked the visual Kei version despite not really enjoying the other version...for various reasons....😒I also discovered Ouji-Kei ( prince style...I still love this one) and Hime Kei( princess style) as well at the time....over the years I realized really fishy things about the community....
A while back I had borrowed some books at the library called...The Moe Manifesto,Otaku Encyclopedia all by Patrick W. Galbraith and another book called School girl something another ...how a something another made a nation cool....
I was disturbed by what he said about LOLITA fashion and anime/manga community.....my mother warned me about the scene saying it was named after a book about a man who has relations with a little girl....It was then revulsion hit me and I felt bad about ever saying the word LOLITA in front of my mom...I even told her" Nah 🙄that's just the book not the fashion 😂" little did I KNOW what I was in for ...😅
At some point I wanted to wear Elegant gothic LOLITA, punk LOLITA and classic gothic LOLITA ...but I don't usually wear women's clothes so I eventually came across Ouji Kei as a way to still stay in the scene without having to wear skirts or dresses plus I liked prince style better....I also discovered Decora( The pop star Kyary Pamyu Pamyu helped me discovered it..as well as Sebastian Masuda..) , Yami kawaii and other Japanese street fashions I knew already but didn't know the name for it and...that it was a scene outside of the cosplay community......
Around June of 2018 I discovered a website called Wunderwelt.Jp which I came across because Mana had a fashion line there called Moi meme Moite I think🤔(it's been a while 😅) I wanted to support one of my favorite guitarist of all time...so I went on YouTube to see if anyone from the USA ever brought from there and how....
The first channel I can across was of a really nice person....the second seem nice too.....but after I think three and a half months I realized that ...this channel was very toxic and that the YouTuber in question was a prevy creep, obnoxious, pretentious, slightly racist, arrogant, pompous, materialistic , overy girly, sexist,spoiled,vain, obsessed, uncultured and unread jerk who makes fun of everyone who wasn't as pretty as her or rich...... And ignored her male audience. (And knew hardly anything about anime and manga) which really pissed me off ..she hardly knew anything about the SUBCULTURES of JAPAN and was even rude to her international viewers...... She called herself a "Streamy hot loli" Yeah everything about her channel was bizarre ..she was even slightly abusive to her gf...and builed her friends to being" LOLITA" she made jokes about stalking young girls including her own GIRL FRIEND! Still she usually dated men and said she fetished young lesbians...
weird right?!
I thought she was a bad example of the scene.
Eventually I stopped watching her channel 😂
But as I watched other videos, read the blogs, joined groups, conventions......I realized that most of them if not all were like THIS..... ugh I guess..... This is too long but stick with me ok? I'm getting there ....😅 I came across a " LOLITA" in Hot Topic ( which was cramped as hell) to get some Nightmare Before Christmas merchandise...when I heard a girl shout" Anime is life" out if no where...I saw she was in" LOLITA" it was the brand Angelic Pretty so I asked her about it since I recognized the design...she sneered at me and looked me up and down ... And asked why would a guy know that?!
Looked down at her own dress as if she didn't know what she had on....
Her friend/ boyfriend or whatever told her....I guess he was the one who brought it....
I was dressed as a gothic horror clown ..so she assumed I wouldn't know what she was wearing and was rude to me as we spoke...I laughed it off...and after a while she calm down...
She tells me that she likes hime kei and LOLITA....
I told her I liked Ouji she asked what it was. I told her.... sneered at me AGAIN ..... I was even judged at a physican office for my style because the women thought
I was part of the " LOLITA scene"I eventually readed
Up on Idol culture from the 1960s - now in Japan and the subcultures of Tokyo.....I found out more disturbing stuff.... that was STILL going on! I read Masafumi Monden's Japanese fashion cultures book and that proved what Everyone was saying about how Kawaii fashion came to be....and "LOLITA"...... without "attacking" the wearers....who did the right thing.....
I still look at "LOLITA" clothes now but not as much as before and some people I'm even still subcribed to still .. ..I don't like the subculture anymore through.. Even the boys fashion that are similar to LOLITA has this problem...Otona means adult and kodomo MEANS child. Together doesn't mean adolescent , yet people think it does... calling themselves "Kodona" which means"adult child" 😓It's like the fashion version of shota con....not like prince style at all! It's makes sense now why people keep mentioning Black Butler getting them "into"Kodona or Ouji since a lot of the followers are Fujoshi or shota fans..... I was wondering why they kept mentioning it even though Black Butler has nothing to do with Ouji..atleast not the anime.... especially since BB has shota Yaoi fanfiction
As a fan of Black Butler and Ouji this is replusive
I don't like loli or shota they are the most disgusting anime/manga themes.....
They even sexualized Alice and wonderland....
I regret not listening to the warnings. Yet I still wanna read the fashion.
Anyways I hope not to offended.

The message of this song should never be ignored. It's not Lolita the style (I thought it was when I was in middle school) but after reading Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita I understood how in depth this song goes about a child being sexually abused by grown ups and losing their child hood because they are confused and manipulated into thinking something like that is ok. Lolita in the book was a pretty little girl who thought she had an "adult" mindset (what with kissing boys and losing her V to a boy her age at summer camp) but then is manipulated into some relationship with her step father. She had no where to go, no one to turn to, and wasn't allowed to go to school for a very long time because the perv wanted her to himself. The song breaks my heart, no child should ever go through this.

Lolita complex is used to refer to paedophilia where an adult man likes little girls

@Roxy Woodward Yep, and worse when a kid who's been through similar stuff reads the book/watches the film and it further confuses them and reinforces their erroneous belief of their own culpability...

Roxy Woodward

The awful thing is that even now, a lot of people interpret the Kubrick movie - and perhaps the book - as a poor man, being manipulated by a vixen who pretends to be innocent, but is in fact totally adult and 'wise beyond her years'. That's still a narrative we hear too often: about how a teenager 'manipulates' or 'seduces' a grown-up man. It's not his fault, he was seduced by her! Not even considering the fact that he's supposed to be the adult, and she's still a child, even if she's pretending to be an adult. Lot's of kids can pretend to be adults. I know I did. Doesn't mean they're ready to do what adults do.

Ive never seen the book nor movie, i was trying to figure out what the song was about. After reading @Maniacaish post and listening, it makes sense. That is horrid

One line really grabbed me. “So it’s my fault?” How many times have victims of assault, be they male, female, young, old, prudish, sexually active, sober, drunk, any adjective you can think of, have been blamed for their trauma?
