... I hear this term used so often, and I've been thinking lately, what really is a poser? People seem to make this judgement by just looking at people they see walking down the street, just because they do something outside a stereotype. For example, if a so called 'goth girl' is wearing a pink fluffy supre' skirt she might be called a poser. But this has nothing to do with her lifestyle, her values, personality or interests. It always seems to be the ones who emulate some ideal stereotype that point the finger. Isn't underground culture supposed to not follow general rules/values of society which are generally accepted? You should be allowed to be yourself without being judged, especially by people who should know better.

I am such a poser becuase I like gwen stafani aswell as slipkot I am such a poser becuase I wear bright colours and other days I wear dark. I am such a poser becuase I am always happy and never depressed I am a poser becuase I love my perents instead of hating them. I am poser beacuse I am fat and I dont starve myself to death.I am a poser becuase I am just being myself,

No matter what I do that makes me feel comftable I never seem to make people happy about it thts justs the way thigns are

No one is a poser unless they are pretending to be something their not. Therefore, you can never tell a poser by looks alone.

i think a poser would be someone who is not happy with who they are so they pretend to be someone they arent just for people to like them.

I think there are judgemental people out there who mistake people for posers even though they arent.

I was called a poser for reasons that were rediculious but i really never cared because i knew that i was just being myself and if other people didnt like it then that was their problem.

i know at least one poser and he is only that because of the way he acts not the way he dresses or the music he listens to or whatever, he isn't a very smart guy but he is very pretentious in the way he uses large multisyllabic words where they're completely unneccesary, and he hangs out with nerdy gamer type fellows only to ridicule their lifestyle, but whenever he isn't with them he is with very dumb sporty jocular guys. that is the very definition of a poser.

I've always thought it rather funny. I know that being a "POSER" is when someone tries desperately to fit in, either in a group or a lifestyle... but in doing so he sticks out like a sore thumb because he tries too hard!

...but whenever I hear someone use the word 'poser', I think of these people doing the Madonna's "Vogue" every few steps or so.
