Uh, yeah. So I've been called a poser several times - for the basic retarded reasons. I shop at Hot Topic, and Torrid, and like the color black, and I used to cut and I slip in and out of pseudo-pointless depression, and I listen to My Chemical Romance, Green Day, Fallout Boy, and some other stuff.

I'm immedeately called a poser. And that I'm trying to look " punk " or " goth ". Which is R-E-T-A-R-D-E-D.

There is no " punk " or " goth ". Punk is a way of being. Someone who causes chaos and loves to fuck around, and fight people. Someone who doesn't need to have purple hair and wear spikes and chains to stand out in society, and be original.

Not me. I'm pretty conformed, with a couple thousand opinions about the corrupt gov't and stuff. And stand out in a crowd? The only way I do that is when I'm chasing a hottie at the mall or yelling at a friend of mine for something. And yes - because of my unusually textured hair.

The " goth " thing? Not.Even. Close. I watch Degrassi and listen to alternative pop-rock, hip-hop, r&b! Come on!! Is there a goth out there who listens to that kind of music, watches TV like that, and shops regularly at Old Navy? Nope.

So that's why I hate people who call me poser. But, I still call lots of people posers. * Ashlee Simpson.. - cough - Amy Lee.. - cough cough - Avril.. * ^-^

Interesting I come across this community when just last night, I had a very lengthy discussion on the words "punk" and "poser". I don't like either of them. Let's start with punk, since that terrible word, "poser" wouldn't even be of existence if people didn't take the word "punk" so seriously.

What confusing words. Notice that in the dictionary, PUNK means one who shocks society with their clothing, actions, and music. People have turned it into so much more, and there is no longer a definate definition of the word. Therefore, I don't bother using either word. I like punk rock, I may not follow the trends, I don't go with the crowd, etc. etc. , but I am, and will NEVER, call myself a punk.

The interesting thing is, people who consider themselves punks are labeling themselves, and people see 'punk' as something that no one else is... so aren't people who are labeling themselves punks actually posers?... see how much confusion these words get us all into? Why any labels at all? Everyone is their own person, so as far as I'm concerned, we can all be punks.

Well I think I've said what I wanted to say... and it doesn't seem like this community has very many members, but I hope that more people join.

-Noa-

Hrm..interesting community you have here...so I decided to join.

I have been called a poser quite a few times. I have been called it for being "depressed" (I have my reasons, none of which I tell many people..so most automatically asume I'm doing it to be "cool"). I have been called a poser for the jewlery I wear..since well, you know, anyone who wears a collar and/or many bracelettes MUST be a poser, there's no way around it. Oh, and apparently I am one for the music I listen to..when they only know a small amount of what I infact do listen to.

I'm tired of it, I really am.
I am me. No one else, just me. I wear what I feel comfortable in. I act the way I do just because..well, it's me.

People should stop accusing everyone else of being a poser. Depending on your deffinition of one, if one continues to call people a poser, they are labeling people. They are putting them in clasifications, which in turn, can make them a poser as well.
