Hipsters

19 Jul

Is it me or do these peeps somehow fly under the radar? While they may be more passive in their manners of displaying it, hipsters are capable of reaching extreme levels of douchebaggery.

The common stereotype of a hipster is a skinny-jeaned, coffee sipping, obscure poetry reading, thick rimmed glasses wearing individual who prides themselves in their superior cultural taste, non-conformity, and ability to set and stay ahead of the popular trends. While none of these are necessarily Red Flags on their own, or automatically qualify someone as a hipster, they are pretty good reasons to warrant suspicion.

WTF.

To distinguish a hipster from someone who simply enjoys the things I mentioned above, consider the reasons why they do these things and the way they carry themselves as a result.

For example, while all of us have at least a few bands or songs on our iPods we enjoy listening to that aren’t relatively well known or popular, a hipster’s music collection will exclusively contain non-mainstream artists and songs on purpose. A hipster goes against what is popular simply for the sake of being different.

The minute their favorite underground indie band becomes mainstream they will stop listening. Why? Because now that the band is popular, the band is uncool, and it is no longer hip to listen to them. The reason they liked the band in the first place was most likely due to reinforcing their own self-image as a “cool” and “unique”, rather than genuinely enjoying the music.
