What punks/skaters/goths call people who try to be punks/skaters/goths but are too mainstream. Personally I think that this whole "anything that's mainstream is bad" idea is retarded. Don't you people realize that if you're punk, goth, skater, or whatever you are that you're still conforming, just to a different group? When everybody's an "individual," no one is. The people you call "posers" are the ones who do what they want and don't care what anybody else thinks, and thats the way it should be. Who the hell are you to decide whats "punk" and whats not? If people think they're punk but they wear Abercrombie, then just let them be, they're being themselves.
I'm a girl, and I wear Abercrombie and American Eagle clothes. I also wear a lot of pink and I wear makeup to school. But if you look in my garage, you will find a $130 skateboard and about 10 different ramps and grind bars. Call me a poser if you want, but I'm just being myself.
This is a word used for people who act, dress, talk like people they aren't. It's a label for a person who is pretending they are someone totally different. It's most often used to describe people calling themsevles "punk."
Lil Johnny Bob is such a f*cking poser. He gets liberty spikes and puts safety pins in everything he owns and now automatically assumes he's a punk rocker child?! Bullsh*t!
A poser is a generally slanderous insult with no truthful backing. It is often used among teenagers depending on what someone wears.
However, the literal definition is someone who attempts to 'pose' or not be their actual self, to fit in among others.
"Dude, John came in wearing an Adio jacket and skater shoes today."
"Are you serious? He doesn't even skate. Man, what a poser."
Truthfully, this by no means suggests that John was actually attempting to pose as a skater. He just bought the clothes he wanted.
well, a poser is someone who says that they are a punk because they have a cky cd and a ramones shirt, and dont even like the cd, and have never heard a song by the ramones,clash, sex pistols, or real punk music. most have liberty spiked hair or a "fohawk", and listen to Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, and Avril Lavinge, or songs about relationships(and ending them, and how bad it hurts)
dude, im such a punk!!! i got the Good Charlotte Dvd and a sex pistols shirt. dude, im so fuckin cool
some one trying to be something their not
OH MY GOD!! ASHLEE SIMPSON IS SO ROCKIN'
A word popularized by the teenagers of this generation. It is used to describe someone who is "biting off" another person, and one who tries to fit in with a group. Honestly, no one even gives a shit about who are "posers" and who aren't. In today's logic, any newcomer is a poser, or anyone who decides to wear something else or listen to something else is a poser. The word is used to bash those who try new things regardless of reason for doing so, and it's one of the most overused words by teenagers. It is mostly used by people who have no self-esteem and resort to talking down to other people or friends to satisfy themselves. Seriously people, fuck off already.
Guy #1: Dude, stop wearing LRG, you're such a fucking poser!
Guy #2: Whateva, I do what I want!
1.People who pretend to be something they're not because they think it makes them realy cool when in actual fact it makes them look like desperate wannabe's who can't get friends any other way (which is what they are).
2.Also when people pretend to like, for instance, a band when actauly they just think the lead singer is 'hot' as opposed to actualy liking the music.
Poser: OMG i sooooooooooo love mcr! They are like my favourite band.
Non-poser: Realy? same, i realy like their music. My favourite song is probably 'You know what they do to guys like u in prison'. Whats yours?
Poser: ummm...uh...i dunno but Gerard Way is waaaaay hot!
(btw im not saying mcr are not hot im just saying that thats the ONLY reason the posers will like the band, because they think they're hot.)
