Remember the Kitschkween (that's me for those of you who don't know) motto: "Like what you like and don't be sorry for it."
A person shouldn't have to prove their authenticity to anyone. If they like Britney Spears AND Siouxsie and the Banshees, leave them alone. If they have torn clothing with safety pins all over the place AND like to wear Nike shoes, leave them the hell alone. We are all trapped in a world where if a subculture is discovered by a greedy corporate monster, they will find a way to make it mainstream. So please. If you shop at Hot Topic because you don't know where else to find awesome clothes and accessories or discover music you can't hear on the radio, then don't be ashamed. You can just quote the above highlighted statement when someone busts on you for being a poser.
