Poseur is a truly moronic term used primarily by those who also meet the traditional definition of poseur (i.e. "trying to be something they're not". The reality is, though, poseurdom is a stage of adolescence. "Poseurs" are simply trying to find themselves, and, as a result, may go through nearly every phase there is. Just like you, the prep turned gangster turned goth turned emo turned skater is trying to establish who they really are.
The only reason one person refers to another as a poseur is because they wish to be seen as "hardcore" by insulting others.

A poser way to say the word poser.
It is NOT the correct word, unless you are French/speaking French.
If you ARE speaking in French, then you ARE using it correctly as the word for poser.
