It changed a-holes to non-nice individuals. Cool! Very smooth, I-A-B. Very smooth.

*Contemptuos harrumph" You are all so posing. Hipsters? Really? Like it`s new. Back in the day, we called them "non-nice individuals" or "bitches".

@imnakdjumpme: drat no. I never were a hipster. I`m not one right now either. It`s not cool to be a hipster. It never was. It`s not cool now either.

...Wait, does me denying that I`m a hipster mean I`m a hipster? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

This is stupid! These aren`t hipsters at all! They`re just awkward rebellious hippies. Hipsters where turtle necks and those weird french hats and rectangular glasses and spend most of their time in Starbucks or talking about avant garde artists like Andy Warhol or listening to terrible garage bands in their local coffee bar while they discuss why or why not a "God" could be of use in modern society.

@Jammey: more specifically, Hipsters are an evolution of Indie kids. We who were indie kids 5 years ago either turned into hipsters or ionno, don`t belong to any specific group anymore. Some of my friends are the former, some are the latter (including me). Hipster (US) = Hipster (UK) = Hipster (Sweden).

And Chavs are worse than wiggers. Loads worse. The Asbo sods.

Oh and davymid Hipster (US) = Indie Kid (UK), Wigger (US) = Chav (UK).
We`ve both got the same seedy undercurrent of society, just with different titles

I wouldn`t count myself as a hipster (which I guess over here in the UK is equal to an indie kid), but I wear skinny jeans... what does this mean? *ponders*

sbeelz, the most common visible symptom of hipsterdom is denying that you or the things you do are hipster-esque. You may have just outed yourself.

Sriracha. I put this sauce on anything and everything, from sushi (highly recommended) to ramen noodles, to hot dogs, to burritos, to my wife.....but don`t try the wife thing. Sriracha sauce is extremely spicy. It will burn sensitive areas and you will sleep alone for a long time.

Whatever- epic beards are epic. But you gotta keep that sh/t clean, son!

Also- sriracha? How`s that "hipster?" That poo`s just delicious.

Really, though, applying that term to anyone based on their preferences misses the essential meaning of it. A hipster is necessarily someone who puts effort into and defines themselves by being seen as cool by others. It means caring how people judge your taste in fashion, art, music and literature more than how they judge your character. It involves a certain kind of shallowness that can`t be determined simply by looking at the clothes a person wears. Creating lists like this, and deriding people as "hipsters" based solely upon superficial aspects of their personality totally plays into the hipster mentality.

@edana42: There is no cure. He/she may get better on his/her own, but other than that, there`s no hope. I`ve watched some of my friends gradual descent into hipster-dom and it`s not pretty. What`s worse is that one wrong step at a critical point and they`ll turn into a douche. Well, a bigger douche. The wall street type.

You know, I just realized I`m not a hipster.

I do wear skinny jeans, but that`s cause my W=28.

I wear chucks, but only because I like them and they`re comfortable.

I do have a beard, but only because I`m lazy when it comes to shaving.

Hmm, glasses. I look good in any glasses. But I don`t have the thick rimmed ones.

I do listen to indie music, but I have no problem with them getting signed to a major label and get money.

I do like unicorns, but then who doesn`t?

I do love coffee, but again, who doesn`t?

I have had long discussions about typography, but... Nah, they got me there. Actually, I do have some pretensions, only not one of those listed. And I don`t wanna say what they are.

But If I lived in New York, I wouldn`t live in Brooklyn. It`d be either the Upper East or the Upper West Side.

Anyways, YAY I`m not a hipster!

Pay a visit to the haven of all havens for hipsters: Williamsburg, Brooklyn before you come to such conclusions. It is not about being derogatory, but it is actually eerie how THAT many people can look SO similar all while trying to look totally different. You wanna hear a great example of irony? Goodwill store down the street from a shoe store that sells $300 shoes imported from Europe and a coffee shop that sells $5 muffins. These people will show off their $3 shirt while wearing shoes that cost what a regular NYer might pay for utilities in a month! The pretentiousness is ridiculous. I am not one for stereotyping, but Williamsburg is another universe and you can`t deny that the hipster concentration down there is totally molding a distinct culture down there that denies a lot of the realities of what life in NY is really like for most people.

I`m a native NYer and live in Brooklyn (ghetto, non-hipster area). Trust me, these freaks are what the midwest barfed up into NY. Only hipsters have names like "Conrad" and say things like "Conrad, this man is bothering me" (insert fake British accent a la Madonna) to get out of a conflict created by them almost running you over with their car! Maybe they really should only be allowed to ride those stupid bikes!

I don`t know of these "Hipsters" of which you speak. Personally, I`ve never actually seen one in the wild, its native habitat, only on I-A-B. Back in the UK, the seedy undercurrent of society isn`t Hipsters, it`s Chavs.

Actually, come to think of it, I`d take Hipsters over Chavs any old day. America, count your blessings!

I love how hipsters think they`re being original, not just because they follow trends obsessively, but because that shtit`s like 70 years old, remember this dude?, I just remember a few years back I was helping my grandmom with some groceries and she spotted one and said "Phuckin` hipsters are back, I thought that poo died with Kennedy." Not a new trend at all and in no way original.

Hipsters are hipster because they CHOOSE to be?
I thought they were just a bunch zombies that follow stupid trends because they couldn`t help it. They actually have resources and infographics to help them become hipster??

Would a hipster realize they`re a hipster? Or admit to being one if they did know?

It`s just a derogatory term for people who do at least 2 of the following things: a. follow a certain kind of fashion that encourages bright colors, androgyny, or involves a home-made aesthetic(even if it`s store bought), b. are lifestyle lefties/liberals by being veggie/vegan, minimalist, or vaguely politically active, c. are kinda young(under 30) or d. are music geeks and consider alot of what`s on the radio to be crap. There is no cogent group of people you can call hipsters. It depends on who you want to feel superior to at the moment. I know a tight-jeansed vegan chick who broke up with someone over shopping at walmart once. She claims to hate hipsters. I`ve seen street punks called hipsters(and they hate hipsters) by nerdy teens who referenced LATFH. If you avoid certain places or people because a derogatory term you learned on the internet or TV makes them somehow abhorrent to you, you`re a dick and they`re better off not knowing you.

I live in Lawrence, KS. It`s like hipster Mecca over here. However, most of them are actually pretty nice and accepting of people. They talk to strangers (like me) as if you`ve been best friends forever. Or maybe that`s just the midwest hipster breed?

Wow, after seeing this I realize I was a hipster; long before a hipster was called a hipster. How hipster is that? I`m not anymore though. Which, in a way, makes me a hipster all over again...?
