fact:

- technically not a poser store... you have people that shop at hollister in there, people from the hip hop scene shopping in there...
- there is no religious Paraphernalia there... they dont sell anything with crosses, pentagrams, weed/drug symbols on them
- its mainly for people from the age of 16-25
- if you think its over priced, wait till theres a sale or it goes on clearance!
- there is really no happy bunny shit in there anymore... except for room funishings and things for your car... if you want happy bunny stuff... go to claires or icing!
- yeah its true... preps rip off the style... aint lyin there!
- if you say that all the little avril and evanescense fans shop there... in reality they dont! most of the avril fans are scared to go in there!
- honestly there bondage pants are overrated... and the girls bondage pants are too feminen and lacy!
- if you think hot topic is all about black.. you are quite wrong... there is actually alot of color! sure they sell hello kitty and carebears... but thats to appeal to the younger generation
- there really is no good charlotte stuff in there... SO GET OFF IT!
- alot of the styles in there are also influenced by the employees when they go to shows, they have a thing called ticket reimbursement, where they give you your money back for your ticket, and you fill out a paper saying about the different styles you saw there! so for all you people that call hot topic a poser store that love to go to concerts, your actually influencing whats sold in the store!

fiction:

- pretty much all the stupid rumors that you hear! if ya wanna know about hot topic why dont you go in there and take a look for yourself instead of walking by the store and looking in, and making a quick assumption of the quick glance you took! honestly i hate having people come in my store and say "OH MY GAWD!! THIS A POSER STORE!!" get a fucking life and stop labeling places! cause its just a store that sells clothing! oh and btw im an employee at this so called poser store!
great stuff: selection of music and apparel that deals with the music... after all hot topic is all about the music

A diverse store that has Metal T-Shirts, Nirvana memorabilia, gay pride stickers, clothes w/ sharp stuff sticking out of them, and weird little characters like Happy Bunny and Eve L.
Also frequented by 12-ish year old females that like to express themselves by wearing net-sleeved shirts, black jelly bracelets, and put Happy Bunny patches on their backbacks. Pretty much everyone at my school wears something from there.
Me: Why are you shopping at Hot Topic?
Rebellious Teenage Girl: To piss off my upstanding, Christian parents.

A store with a dark/alternative theme aimed at teenagers. Found in most local malls. They sell t-shirts, stickers, buttons, jewelry, and some other stuff.

99% of people are faggots about it, and like to assume that only wannabe emo/scene/goth/punk kids shop there. It's become a catch-all phrase to mean "poseur".

In reality, nobody ever walks into that store and sees nothing but clowns trying really hard to be emo/scene/goth/punk, but just normal people.

Half the people who make a big deal about Hot Topic being a poseur store have bought stuff from them in the past anyway, and a lot are probably poseur emo/scene/goth/punk kids trying really hard to convince everyone else they're for real.

In short, Hot Topic is just a store that sells some pretty neat stuff, and everybody who whines about it being for poseurs is a kneejerking dumbass. Oh, but Happy Bunny is really retarded and unfunny, fuck that shit.
Prima: I went to the mall today. I bought these earrings from Hot Topic---

Secunda: OMFG *DEFCON 1* THAT IS A STORE FOR POSEURS!!!!!!!!!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU???? YOU FUCKING FAKE GOTH!!!!!!!!

Prima: Uh, dude, it's just a fucking store. I'm not a fake goth or a regular goth. What are you talking about anyway, I met you in there last month.

Secunda: SHUT UP YOU FUCKING LOSER, I DO NOT SHOP AT STORES WHERE FAKE POSEURS LIKE YOU SHOP.

Prima: ...

A nationwide chain store that cannily markets pre-packaged "individuality" to droves of teenagers and young people who really want to be just like everybody else. A big hit with fans of Avril, Evanessence, etc.
Today's Hot Topic: The irony inherant in teens who buy their entire look from a nationwide chain store in order "to be different".

A store People Shop at with overpriced but Interesting clothes. It is just a place to buy things, it does not define who you are. All shopping there means id that You have a Substantial amount of Money.
Sane Person: I bought this at Hot Topic.
Insane Person: OMG! You Poseur!

Punk in a box. Somehow, kids think that a good way to rebel is to give your money to a multimillion dollar company. Yeah. Maybe if they thought about it for a bit instead of mindlessly stampeding to hot topic to fit in with the trend, they'd realize the stupidity of it all.
Instead of wasting money buying shitty merchandise at hot-topic, maybe you could give to charity or something.

A cool store that is often judged as being a place for posers and people paradoxically trying to be unique. Actually, it has some pretty good merchandise.
I was being stupid and shallow for judging Hot Topic. I shop there not because I want to be unique, but because I actually like the stuff.
