A person who has a great look, but has no political ethic to back it up. A faux-revolutionary.
A "Poser" would include kids who wear punk rock tshirts and have piercings/tattoos but have no concept of politics and why the original punks chose to dress that way. They get the benefit of looking "cool" without earning their stripes through real revolution.
A person who tries being someone they aren't for social acceptance, and is always rejected by the cool kids.
1. Irma tried being like his friends Ryan R and Josh, who dressed and talked black, because they were. Irma began hanging out with them and copying their style right down to their socks, although he felt awkward and looked like an idiot. When he finally realized this, three years later, he tried being preppy like his friends Jim and Ryan W, but couldn't fit in with them either because he wasn't a prep.
2. Irma began watching MTV and BET and was influenced right away. He lived in a rich, crime-free, white collar neighborhood, but tried acting as though he were from the ghettoes of southwest Detroit. He wore baggy Girbaud jeans, a wave cap, and white tees down to his knees, although he looked retarded.
Irma: You are Asian. Black kids don't try to be Asian so why do you try to be black? You are a geek, face it. Popular kids don't try being geeks so why try being a popular kid?
Just be your ownself, you poser
Posers are extremely insecure people, usually teenagers and maybe a bit younger (11 or 12). Posers are extremely annoying, and pretend constantly, always putting on an act and pretending to be something they are not. In my opinion, a poser is like a tryhard, but is more concerned with being part of a scene (emo, goth, punk).
One of the most annoying things a poser does is pretend to be into a band. I had an msn conversation with a poser once.
it was like this:
i like Jimmy Eat World
yeah theyre great... whats your favourite song?
oh i cant really remember any songs off their album
you dont even know Jimmy Eat world you're a poser
that my friends, is a poser.
POSER: omfg my life sucks </33
POSER: just cause
POSER: i dont wanna talk about it
ME: you fucking poser emo
Someone who doesn't fit perfectly into a stereotype, and therefore is called a poser. Someone doesn't have to be "posing" to be a poser; they don't have to claim to be a certain stereotype. If you try to be yourself, you will be labeled a poser.
