: What's the precise meaning of "in your face culture"? This phrase was used when discussing "The fight club" movie in one book. Is it all about aggression or there is something else?

"in your face" = confrontational. Among some elements of the population, this is regarded as a healthy, unambiguous and honest style of communication without pretense or euphemism. Others regard it as an excuse to be rude. unkind, aggressive, and immature. Take your pick.
