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 chain store for people who hate chain stores.
The pierce monkey at Hot Topic kept flirting with me so I got my skate-board-punk-ass out of there.

A store that sells slightly overpriced clothes but hey if you're truly original you can buy something cool from there and match it with some thrift coture to make something truly cutting edge.
i like it
i think its cool
you wanna shoot me? okay... whatever.
but hey you're labeling everyone that goes in there and that doesn't make you any better than a poser.
Opinions on hot topic.

prep: to dark and black.

goth: a reflection on the morbid nature in the artist's mind

punk: chains that cordinate and look cool with skate boards.

nerd: a way to show i can wear something bold.

poser: a way to conform with others...

A cool store that is often judged as being a place for posers and people paradoxically trying to be unique. Actually, it has some pretty good merchandise.
I was being stupid and shallow for judging Hot Topic. I shop there not because I want to be unique, but because I actually like the stuff.

A nationwide chain store that cannily markets pre-packaged "individuality" to droves of teenagers and young people who really want to be just like everybody else. A big hit with fans of Avril, Evanessence, etc.

A place that preppy "teeny" rich kids shop to steal fashion statements from a rocker image that exhisted long before they were born.
Didn't they use to make fun of us for wearing leather, spikes, and black about 5 years ago? My life is now being sold in the mall.

A store...Preps, goths, normal people, rednecks, etc. shop there. Going to the store does not stereotype you. Every1 on here that thinks so is just as bad as a fucking prep. I personally think hot topics prices suck balls and they've sold out over the years, going softer and softer.
Idiot #1: People who shop at hot topic are gothic.
ME: God, your fucking dumb.
