But goth is something that those who are... do, so to us goth is something someone (who is goth) does :P

No I've gone on about posers before, but not here so I'll recap on that too for you guys.  I've heard people call the hot topic kiddies, the people who do it because their friends do, and the weekend warriors posers.  I was afraid of the term for a long time because I was still trying to self identify and knew I liked the culture/music/fashion/attitude (and yes the hot goth chicks as well.) Many of the "posers" are the same way and they will either grow out of it or embrace it as their own.  I've always said that I pose as myself, whatever I do I'm still me and in a buddhistic (great philosophy, BS attached to it not so much) sense I'm living the best of all possible lives by being me and true to myself.  I like to think of life as an RPG and I'm playing myself (only 9 more months until I level up again.)

Really the word poser is just a word to alienate people that the in crowd (of any culture) doesn't like to A. have them devalue themselves and B. others devalue them.

My main point is that those who do...  are, as well as those who are, do.  As far as being truly goth though, they are the ones who don't care one way or the other.

Sorry, it's late and I feel like contemplating the universe.
