2. Irma began watching MTV and BET and was influenced right away. He lived in a rich, crime-free, white collar neighborhood, but tried acting as though he were from the ghettoes of southwest Detroit. He wore baggy Girbaud jeans, a wave cap, and white tees down to his knees, although he looked retarded.
Irma: You are Asian. Black kids don't try to be Asian so why do you try to be black? You are a geek, face it. Popular kids don't try being geeks so why try being a popular kid?
Just be your ownself, you poser
One of the most annoying things a poser does is pretend to be into a band. I had an msn conversation with a poser once.
it was like this:
i like Jimmy Eat World
yeah theyre great... whats your favourite song?
oh i cant really remember any songs off their album
you dont even know Jimmy Eat world you're a poser
that my friends, is a poser.
POSER: just cause
POSER: i dont wanna talk about it
ME: you fucking poser emo
someone who cant be kool
so they just follow what the kool people do
and hope it works for them
IN SKATEN THERE IS A BIIIIGGGG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
BEGINNERS AND POSERS... im just to lazy to explain it
i tend to call them faggots
poser goth who wheres all black all the time and thinks they have to hate everything
anyone who calls themselves SCENE... basicly poser emos
*next day after she attempts this the punks talk together*
who the fuck is she? my god..shes such a poser...
omg jenny being punk didn't work..so let me try being gangster..i'll wear baby phat and g-unit clothing!! they'll TOTALLY except me
*next day after she attempts this the gangstas talk together*
who the fuck is she? shes such a poser..
omg jenny being gangster didnt work either!!!! i guess ill have to be emo now and make up problems so that mayb SOMEBODY WILL LIKE ME.
*she attempts this again(notice a pattern?) and well...*
omg..shes a poser..she doesnt have any real problems she has tons of money..that bitch..
Nowadays, most kids are posing as punks/goths/emos/skaters by dressing like them, acting like them, and sharing the same interests as them. Since so many kids are doing this, its very difficult to tell the difference between a real goth and a poser goth.
Here's a more specific definition:
Posers can be quite vicious. They pick on many people, most of who haven't done anything to them.
VICTIM #1: Real punks/goths/emos/skaters. Posers usually call them posers because they want a self-esteem boost. They want to be more goth than the goths, or more punk than the punks are. But lemme tell you posers out there, if you posing as a punk( Im going to use punk as an example because there are more punk posers than other posers) and the only reason you think you are is because you buy all of your apparel at Hot Topic and think Good Charlotte is cool only because you think Benji Madden looks hot in liberty spikes, you have no right to call someone who is a real punk, someone who is really anti-establishment and is all about the music, a poser.
VICTIM #2: Anyone else who is not trying to be punk/goth/emo/skater and is interested in the same things as they are. For example, if a poser who thinks he/she is a goth because they wear no other color but black sees someone wearing black capris, they call them a poser because apparently to them, goths are the only people that are ever allowed to wear black. So what if they like black too! Goths aren't the only ones who are allowed to wear black.
So basically, a poser is someone who claims they are punk/emo/goth/skater and go around calling other people with the same interests as them posers because they claim they're "stealing their interests" and also to make themselves seem more punk/emo/goth/skater.
I hope my furious rant plainly explained to you what a true poser is.
