What, pray tell, is a "mosher"?

EDIT: I should make it clear that I don't intend to 'vote' on this particular topic. It all seems a bit...judgemental. Let people live how the want to live; we're all brothers.

Except maybe women, who would be 'sisters'. Yes. ¨_¨

Nice covering there Johnny.

('Moshing' is a bit like a slowed down version of headbanging, flipping the long hair backwards and forwards in time with music.)

In what sense do you mean?

People who mosh as people to go drinking with? Quite nice and their black clothes are easy on the eye.

People who mosh at gigs? Depends on the music, sometimes it fits, and that's fine, sometimes it's just people who mosh to anything at all and then the whip-effect of the hair can be really annoying.

People who mosh as work-colleagues? Fun to work with because they usually actually have a life outside of what they do for a living, unlike many people in the workforce.

I do find it annoying to be constantly slapped in the face by someone else's hair, but it pretty much goes with the scene so you either put up with it or stand back.

Now, you could be meaning 'moshers' in reference to people who decide that a great idea is to propel themselves around into other people at gigs. For them, a sign of a good gig is the vast number of bruises on their body and dirty looks in their memory. I think that's extending the term 'mosher' into 'wannabe punk', which is something else. I'm just pleased that most of them haven't found out that punks would have spitting fights at gigs too. These are also the kind of people who don't realise that punk died around 1977 and that all we have left is a cultural echo without the political impact.

I like moshing at gigs (depending on the music, of course). I've found the majority of mosh pits are strangely friendly places; much friendlier than the dancefloors of the urban club scene. I don't think you can define 'moshers' as a subgroup of society, though, so I'm not entirely sure what you're asking. Many substantially different sub-groups of the 'alternative' scene include moshing as part of their stereotyped activities.

Also, can I draw your attention to rule number 5. I assume that Addington/Adliongton is your home town, but in two different posts you've spelt it in two different ways. Good english is important to these forums, as described in this thread.

HoldenCaulfield didn't say that she didn't like them either.

There is a place in the UK that has banned people from wearing hooded tops because too many people were wearing them, hiding their faces from the security cameras, and then stealing things. While it seems daft to ban a whole style of clothing and to group together a whole mass of people with varying social attitudes, I can also see their point. There are signs in most shops saying that helmets aren't allowed because they hide the face so why should hoodies be any different?

Personally I have no feelings in either direction about 'moshers', or whatever name you want to call them. I've met some lovely ones and I've met others that constantly feel sorry for themselves despite there not really being anything actually bad happening in their lives... Just like every other group of people.

It's seems wrong to ban a group of people for their clothing choice, but there are reasonable security reasons. When you remove the security issue then it is clearly wrong to say that 'moshers' are all nice, or all depressed, or all grumpy, or all lovely, when they are just as diverse as any other group of people.

Is a MOSHER different to a 'mosher'? Is one more serious than another? biggrin.gif

So the question then is really: what do we think of a generic group of people who are only distinguished by their sense of dress? My answer then: most of them seem nice if you don't get them when they're feeling tetchy in a group situation, just like everyone else.

So, in an attempt to continue the thread: why do you ask? Do you often face prejudice for dressing the way you do? And if you do face prejudice, how do you respond to it, do you confirm and reinforce a stereotype or do you surprise people?

We tend to judge people on who they are, not what they are, partially because 'what' people are is often very vague. People usually think I'm a goth,a cyberpunk, or punk, but they're all wrong. I'm a person, just as distinguished and equally as average as anyone else. Accepting that I have many things that are very normal makes me happier to accept the bits that are different. Don't worry about labels; they won't do you much good.

Sky: I know this will make me feel even older than I already do after seeing that you're fifteen, but what do you class as being 'wee'?

I like moshing now and then. I like getting in a pit and bumping around getting cuts, bruises, and broke my nose a while back. it's all in the heat of the moment, y'know?
Just respect the poeple around you. Not everyone goes there for that.
And if someone falls over, help them up before they get hurt.
If a fight starts, drag them apart and let them cool down.
Then get back into the music.

But it's been a while since I did that. Recently I've just been dancing or headbanging. Damn I love my hair straighteners... now I can headbang without my long hair turning into a frizzy afro.
