Just read this. actually listen to an opinion...Hot Topic. one of the best stores ever. but...I hate people who go there just to "fit in by standing out" it's a contradiction which is completely and udderly stupid. I, myself love hot topic and most of the clothes and accessories they carry. It's one of the only stores that actually carries band T-Shirts. I wear it because I want to, not becuase I want to fit in or be like everyone else. I shop at all kinds of stores, if i like it, i buy it, i don't try to be someone I'm not. Everyone should just try to be themselves, the world would be a lot less screwed up. I may sound mean, or judgemental but I don't like people who act a certain way with one group of people and a different way with different people. They're like sponges, they absorb the attitude around them when they should be able to be themselves around their "friends"

my advice: Dress how you want to dress. don't care what people think of you. be who you are, not what others want you to be.
(and i actually heard this conversation at the mall, i was like, go girl 2. rofl.)

girl 1: Did you see that girl shopping at hot topic?

girl 2: yeah, so...

girl 1: she's such a poser, she shops at american eagle and hot topic. she's just weird...

girl 2: and why can't she shop at both stores? do you even know that girl? she's really nice and down to earth. You don't know her or her style, she's herself, you should try that for once. just stop judging people for a minute and get a fricken life.

A place where kids who like to look like trash shop at. Everything in there looks like stuff that I throw in my garbage can. Everything looks plastic, flimsy, cheap, dirty, and stupid.
"Omg, I hate brand names. Brand names are so materialistic. I refuse to buy Dkny, Tommy Hilfiger, and A&F. My favorite store is Hot Topic!!!!!"

A shop i am embarassed to now shop at bc of all the gay ass new "punk" trends. Hot topic itself is not completely poser-ish, just their gay ass band merch and the posers who shop their. On occasion you'll find a good shirt or something there.
Let's go to hot topic and point at the non-conformist posers who are conforming.

Hot Topic is a place where 12 year old girls shop to buy Fall Out Boy shirts and think there so HXC Hot Topic is also a place where heavy girls try to squeeze themselves into Corsets with ugly bondage pants and think they are HXC while listening to Slipknot
Girl:Did you buy that new slipknot cd at Hot Topic?
Guy:Hell yeah I dig guys in masks
