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
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
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.
