1. Any person who conforms to a fashion statement
rather than an ideal or way of life. Most American universities, colleges and secondary schools keep a steady population of poseurs
, usually in art classes and libraries. The poser is known to congregate in small groups, usually of their own ilk, or with real punkers
in an attempt to fit in. The telltale sign of a poseur
is their lack of knowledge of music, art and the culture they are pretending to portray. As an example, the roots of the punk rock
movement was based more on all out rebellion and an attitude going against the social status quo and morays. In contrast, the poseur
holds none of these values, yet will pretend to.
"My advanced ceramics class is chock full of hipster poser fucks. All they do flip their scarves around and talk about going to shows and making out and doing their hair."
"Did you see those two hardcore guys beat the snot out of that poser guy after the show?"
"Yeah, they broke his nose and stole his scarf"
"Serves him right for wearing a scarf in the summer"
