True. I don't mind these mallgoths though. They know that they're ugly losers. Pretentious wankers and hipsters on the other hand, think they're cool. I don't like that.

Was there a "categorise humans" meeting?
Because I feel I must have missed it.
As a free-thinking sentient being, I tend to just do whatever I want without feeling the need to be labelled.

YEAH YOU STUPID FATASS! go have sex with your overweight girlfriend and lick the sweat off her fatty rolls.

from urban dictionary:
Mallgoth
Yuppy teens (or real stupid adults) that try too hard to look unique at the mall. But fail miserably since their mallgoth culture is manufactured as the alternative culture for those who act cynnical towards rap and pop, spawning a legion of pale faced losers and making Hot Topic rich. Ironically Marilyn Manson, their God, is a marketed popstar as well. Mallgoths lack knowledge about tr00 black metal and real goths, who were nomads during ancient times. They think you just have to listen to Marilyn Manson and shop at Hot Topic to be "unique" and "depressed". At the mall (which they practically live in), they complain about everything, even about how commercial the mall is.


yeah, that totally sounds like ween and they might be giant fans to me.... i'd say the only band on your list that fits the bill is system of a down. i dont know about other people who post here... but i cringe when i have to explain to people all these bands on my zune or the shows i'm going to. its really a lot more of an annoyance than a badge of honor.

i think these people do def exist, but i just dont think these bands are what they listen to. usually a bunch of crappy metal/hardcore.

Mallgoth is a term co-opted for use as a meaningless pejorative in order to vaguely call someone else's authenticity into question and, by extension, claim authenticity for yourself.

It serves no conversational function and imparts no information, save for indicating the opinions and preferences of the speaker.

Meanwhile, a market myth has sprung up around the term, as well as a cultural bogeyman consisting of elusive white 20-somethings who wear certain clothes (but no one will agree on what), listen to certain music (no one can agree on this either), and act a certain way (you're probably sensed the pattern on your own).

Suffice it to say, no one self-identifies as a hipster; the term is always applied to an Other, to separate the au-thentic Us from the inauthentic, ironic,Them.

You can't define what that kind of behavior or fashion or lifestyle actually is, nor will you ever be able to. That's because you don't use mallgoth to describe an actual group of people, but to describe a fictional stereotype that is an outlet for literally anything that annoys you.

The twist, of course, is that if it weren't for your own insecurities, nothing that a mallgoth could do or wear would ever affect you emotionally. But you are insecure about your own authenticity - "Do I wear what I wear because I want to? Do I listen to my music because I truly like it? I'm certainly not like those filthy mallgoths!"- so you project those feelings onto others.
