HOT TAKE: You are NOT a Poser – The Toilet Ov Hell
pos·er
noun
a person who acts in an affected manner in order to impress others.
synonyms: poseur, posturer, fake, show-off

I’ve seen an awful lot of people “act in an affected manner to impress others” in my life, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen them called posers. The word is mostly employed as a playful barb to admonish others for ignorance or as a giant red flag to announce that your opinion is worthless. Let’s take a look at how the commenters on this blog use the word. I simply did a word search for “Poser” in comments left over the last month. Here are a handful of the many, many results I found.

“Nope. It wasn’t. Never is.”
