Why people fear goths

We had a discussion about "Goths and discrimination" in GothicDivine club on Stardoll and member Kittychild gave a simple but very clear explanation on why people have fear of goths.

"The way I see it (a little lesson here)
It's a common human instinct to be afraid of anything "different". Way back in the stone age, anything could have been a threat, so the best way to stay alive was to attack anything that was different, in case it hurt you. And that builds fear in whatever it is.
People are particualairly scared of dark things. Dark is always used to symbolize evil and whatnot. Because in the dark, you can't see anything, and thus, anything could be a threat.
So people who dress suposedly "dark" and "different" are a perfect example of people fearing what they won't give a chance to understand.
I understand that this happens, but I can't relate to it."
I think she is right but still i think the people reaction is exagerated. How can you discriminate a human being for being a bit different from you? People go on saying the world is nice because it's full of different things but when they meet the different thing all they do is discriminate it. A bit incoherent isn't it?
I knew people who where afraid of me, they thought I was the child of satan, a demon, mad, freak and a lot of bad thing that HURT me. But then when they got to know me they realized I was exactly like them. Except for the fact that I was into a different type of music that they ended up saying "it isn't so bad after all", a different kind of clothing that became "cool and classy" to them, a different kind of taste in things and a vision of the world that they then realised was "cool and interesting".
Never judge people before you get to know them.
