How to spot a posuer: will look like the thing they are posing as, but almost always to a greater extent. If you ask them about the subject, they will go on and on about how cool it is, while giving little or no background about it. May often call YOU a posuer. Specifics:
Goth: more bondage straps than a sex-shop. more saftey pins than a fabric shop. Will talk about manson all day, and about how much they cut themselves, hate preps, adults, and life in general (but dont kill themselves...).
Emo: listens to Dashboard confessional. period. also likes bands like the get up kids and simple plan. wears oversized wool sweaters or scarves, and if spoken to, will cry. will cry with no provocation at all. will do all this because they think it will get them pity sex.
Skateboarders: will wear brands like: Volcom stone, etnies, element, quicksilver, or other 'posuer' brands. just go to your local skate shop for more info on these brands. will carry their skateboards everywhere, even though they obviously have no scratches on them, or worse, scrape their boards against the curb for the effect. listens to pop punk. when at the skatepark, will not actually ride the skateboard. when spoken to, will get fidgety and maybe run.
snowboarders: harder to spot, but will sit outside their house with goggles on to get a goggle tan. will claim all the crazy stuff they can do, or how they sent a video to burton. etc.
worse is when they use phrases like
"dont label me"
me: shhuuuuuuuuuushh you conformist piece of poo
2. An incredibly narrow-minded nosy person, who makes pathetic attempts to seem more 'hardcore' by hating anything that more than 10 people have heard of.
Me : I couldn't care less. They're a fantastic band, and I don't see why I should tie myself down with genres and stop listening to NIN just because I like Skinny Puppy.
Posuer : Wow, I'm stupid. FAG!
"Ok, although I have America's records, I don't have 'A horse with no name'."

True Skateboarder:" thats wut i thought, u dont even kno........go get a life, u pathetic poseur
