A name given to a person based on his/her fashion sense or musical tastes by people who think that:
A. Just because someone is wearing clothes from Hot Topic
it means that they're trying to be goth
B. Just because someone listens to The Ramones
it means that they're trying to be punk
There are some more examples, but these are some of the more common ones. Most people that call others posers are saying that these people are trying to be goths or punks. These people never consider that maybe, just maybe.. these guys simply like the clothes or music!
It has nothing to do with what they want to BE, but simply what they LIKE, so they go ahead and do it. It's like assuming that just because a white guy wants to rap
, that he's automatically a wigger
. Rap doesn't automatically mean you're gonna speak in ebonics
and rap about bitches
, or how "gangsta
" you are. Only when that IS the case.. you can go and call him a wigger, but otherwise, no.
It's the same with these so-called "goths" and "punks". A stud-belt from Hot Topic doesn't mean that person slits his wrists and cries all day because his life sucks, nor does liking the band Green Day
mean that person wants to rebel against society, get a mohawk, and tell everyone else to fuck off
However.. the easiest way to tell a true poser from a non-poser would be that, if a poser actually gets called a poser, he/she'd overreact quite angrily and surprised.
Wigger: omg look at dat wannabe goth over der wit dose chain pants from Hot Topic lol ur such a goth poser
Non-Idiot: Umm.. no, actually I got these pants because I thought they look cool. Do you have a problem with that?
Wigger: Yea I do!! I'm an awesum rapper wit all mah hoes and rims, who says I'm from da street even tho I wuz raised in a 6-story mansion!!
Non-Idiot: Well in that case, go and tell someone to yell at you instead of coming here like an idiot and calling me a poser... you poser.
Wigger: omg stfu I fukkin hate u u wannabe goth bitch go slit ur wrists u fag
Non-Idiot: I've never slit my wrists in my whole life, moron.
One who pretends to be what one is NOT.
Look at that poser bitch.
One who pretends to be a celebrity or other famous person on Myspace
, or any other social networking site.
They get most of their information from Google, IMDB, interviews, and Popstar Magazine.
One of the lines some posers use is: "I don't care if you think I am a poser. Don't add me...it's ur loss."
Caitlin: OMG! I just found Taylor Lautner's
Myspace page! He commented on my default pic!
Ashley: That's not Taylor! That's probably some middle-school girl posing as Taylor!
Caitlin: I need more proof. This isn't just another poser, because how would someone who's not Taylor know that much stuff about himself?
Ashley: Popstar Mag my friend. That and IMDB.
Pople need to get over the fact that there is no such thing as a poser! A person should be able to do whatever they want without being labelled as a poser.
Random 1: He's such a poser, he's with the skaters but doesn't even have a skateboard!
Random 2: Maybe he just wants to hang out with them...!
Someone who says they really like something when either
1: The barely know anything about it
2: They're only saying that to fit in
Posers usually all dress the same and think they're totally hardcore when really, they suck. Poser is becoming the new term for conformist
, because most posers are only doing the annoying things they do to fit in.
Poser: OMG I love Green Day!
Punk: What's your favorite album?
Poser: American Idiot.
Punk: Ha! Typical poser. I like Insomniac.
Poser: Wha? Is that a second name for one of their songs?
Punk: No, it's an album!
Poser: They have more albums???
Poser: I have a girlfriend. *note: poser is a girl*
Non-Poser: So you're lez or bi or something?
Poser: No, I'm just expreimenting. That's okay in highschool.
Non-Poser: So you aren't attracted to girls but you're dating one?
Poser: Yeah, I love her. She's HOTT.
Non-Poser: You can't say that if you're not attracted to girls. It's faking it. You're a stupid poser. That's sick, it's not just a brand of clothes or something, you're probably breaking your "girlfriend's" heart, because you aren't really attracted to her. Get a boyfriend instead, or be single you fuckhead!
*note: I actually had that conversation with a stupid poser. Most of the posers I know pretend to be bi, and then they use the word "gay" as an antagonistic phrase.*
Poser: I love My Chemical Romance!
Non-Poser: What's your favorite song?
Poser: Welcome to the Black Parade!
Non-Poser: Do you own any of the albums?
Poser: No, I just saw the video on TV! It was so cool... I love MCR <3333
Non-Poser: Have you ever heard "Cemetery Drive"?
Poser: No, I just heard them for the first time! My mom just bought me a MCR shirt!
