I have no idea what that is because Google didn't help me. Is that some type of religion?

What is the problem with asking them? What do you need help with. Maybe you can live without telling them (if that's even an option)...

"Genre of softcore punk music that integrates unenthusiastic melodramatic
17 year olds who dont smile, high pitched overwrought lyrics and
inaudible guitar rifts with tight wool sweaters, tighter jeans, itchy
scarfs (even in the summer), ripped chucks with favorite bands
signature, black square rimmed glasses, and ebony greasy unwashed hair
that is required to cover at least 3/5 ths of the face at an angle."

from the urban dictionary

Okay... So what's the problem?

Aren't most 17 year olds like that? :)

I an not sure you can want to BE something - I think you are/are not.

It's a style thing so MUCH depends on if your old enough to buy your own clothes.

If it's a big deal with your parents and the answer is NO be prepared to "man/girl" up and go with what they want. It all about living in harmony.

Try changing things in small ways at first until they get used to it.

What's to tell? It's not as if you are coming out as gay, or changing religion, your just changing your fashion style. Your biggest problem will be persuading them to pay for your new clothes.

I remember when my youngest went Goth, he didn't last a year with the black hair dye and makeup.

I never sad a thing to him about it and when the fad wore off he was back to normal.

My father argued with my older brother for years about his long hair and when my brother was ready he cut it.

Smart parents don't fight over silly things like fads.

Being "forgetful" about arranging trips to facilitate a fad helps as well.

Parents have been dealing with this since the first Zoot Suit came out. It's not as big of a deal as you think if your parents have some semblance of common sense.
