vicejay: I've never understood Hipster Hate©


Self-imported attention-whoring douchebags who think they are actually "literally" better than YOU, in some sort of half-wit wannabe intellectual ethos obsessed with pointing out how "different" and "countercultural" they are, ignoring the fact that they, themselves are a major culture, and as such, are about as countercultural as Jay-Z is. Trendies are annoying and douchey to begin with, add to that this idea that something that is of "the rare" is better than anything else, ignoring actual quality. For example, insisting that their no-one-has-heard-of band is better than the Beatles, not because the band is actually better, but because no one has heard of them and they "sound different". Fake punks (as in the music) who misuse the concept of "irony" and strain to sound educated, despite it taking a miracle for them to actually be one. It's not good enough to ride a bike, you have to ride a vintage fixie, not because you race in velodrome or used to be a bike messenger, but simply because it's in fashion, and no, you don't really know how to ride one, but the fact that you are, means that you look like a serious biker who is into the "hard stuff".

All of it is fake, and driven by trendiness. Each component would possibly be justifiable, but taken together, it's a big bag of fake attention whoring "I'm a unique and special butterly" Millennial superiority complex taken to an extreme. There are plenty of "scenes" out there, they all suck. Hipsterism is on top of the douche pile. fark them in the ear.

Yet the least segregated cities in the US are in the south and west while the most segregated cities are in the north.

GoSurfing: But really, I hope I'm not a hipster. I'm just weird. Really weird. That weirdness has been around since I was a kid.


If you are doing it for yourself because you enjoy it and what you always have enjoyed, then you aren't a Hipster. That girl is a biatch for setting you up like that (I'd be worse though... Captain Passive Aggressive Goth at your service! But I wouldn't put you down in front of your face if I had the wrong impression of you, just you might catch me sneering in your direction! :-P ) and if she can't get that the answer "I just enjoy it" means "I just enjoy it", then you're better off not pursuing a woman like that.

A person who does something and enjoys it for the sake of themselves, is a good person and not a Hipster. A person who goes out of their way to be "different" (yet looking the same as other Hipsters, strangely enough for a group of aggressively "unique" people); even if the thing they wear, listen to, eat, read, ect, is undesirable to themselves and that person that has the snooty attitude that "no one else could understand the beauty" of the "different" activity that they are intentionally engaged in to distance themselves from the "normal", then that person is a Hipster.

/I despise them myself because they steal alot of ideas from my subculture (and others), turn around and claim it as their own, then they critique the members of the subculture they stole from in their own venues!
//You try dancing to Peter Murphy's song All Night Long while a group of Hipsters that just walked in and ordered the cheapest beer on the menu walk into the middle of the dance floor, it's damn annoying!
///They don't even dance, they just stand around in the middle of the dance floor and talk to each other about the music, the club patrons, and the venue while other people (including me) are trying to dance!
////I'd kick them with the brunt of my steel toed boots but I want to be allowed back to that club in Newark

Leishu: vicejay: I've never understood Hipster Hate©

It saves people from the pain of critical thinking by allowing them to target a malleably defined group to hate, which others also hate, but using their own definitions and with that description of hipster as "someone who does not like a thing I like" they feel empowered in their mutual dislike of those people.

You know what the best defense against a hipster is? Shrug. Meh.

Hipsterism is kind of an earnest trolling. The best defense is to just walk away, maybe chuckle while shaking your head in disbelief. Never engage them.

San Francisco Bay Area tech companies are dirty with them. There is a side benefit. I can go into work every day looking homeless and nobody bats an ironic eyelash.

C_Canuk: vicejay: I've never understood Hipster Hate©

I see a Venn diagram of quirky young people having fun and trendy young people faking it so hard they have to be condescending, to anyone who doesn't like what they like, to compensate.

To me, it's not the fashion, beer, obscure bands, vinyl, fixies etc that piss me off, it's the attitudes of the poseurs. The non poseurs are not conscious of what they look like they are just in the moment doing their thing. The poseurs want to be a part of it and get the attention and admiration they see others getting so, instead of just becoming a part of it, they try to wear the scene like a coat. They are jingoistic about their chosen identity.

The poseurs, what I think people really mean when they say hipsters, have always been around. I think the reason that hipsters get painted with the same brush more than other groups is that their seems to be a critical mass of them within the subculture because the subculture deals with the poseurs by moving on to a new scene rather than deal with them.

The real decent people build the scene from scratch, enjoy it, and then split when the poseurs show up and ruin it. Outsiders don't notice until the annoying jackass poseurs start showing up trying to one up each other and start razing the locals.

Then the locals start saying "man I hate hipsters"

hipster is just the new word for poseur.

from Wikipedia

"
Poseur is a pejorative term, often used in the punk, heavy metal, hip hop and goth subcultures to describe a person who copies the dress, speech, and/or mannerisms of a group or subculture, generally for attaining acceptability within the group or for popularity among various other groups, yet who is deemed to not share or understand the values or philosophy of the subculture. While this perceived inauthenticity is viewed with scorn and contempt by members of the subculture, the definition of the term and to whom it should be applied is subjective. While the term is most associated with ...


Exactly.  It's just like when the cheerleaders started wearing flannel in the 90's after Nirvana hit it big.  If you're being who you are, then that's great.  If you're just trying to show how non-conformist you are by conforming with everyone around you, then you aren't fooling anyone.  But in the end, it's not hate, it's just amusement at viewing my youth through a different perspective and realizing how little people really change across generations.

Millennials still suck though.

I've said this once and I'll say it again.  I don't have a problem with hipsters. I live in a neighborhood in Chicago where they are everywhere. If I were twenty years younger, I might be one of them, but at age 40, I doubt they'd have me, nor I them ;).  The reason I don't have a problem with hipsters is that they unlike some of the other people in my neighborhood, they've never actually physically broken into my property (both car and home) and stolen stuff from me or tried to shoot each other within earshot of my home (and in one case succeeded in killing the other person 1/2 a block up).  So yeah, bring on the hipsters. 'Ironic' facial hair and stupid bikes are pretty small potatoes in the larger scheme of things.

Rednecks are like that when there's a group of them and they are talkin politics, but generally rednecks are way easier to get along with (for me at least, as a urban North African Jew that grew up in Texas) than hipsters. Way more upfront, real, and funny. Were I grew up the rednecks were more like King of the Hill than Birth of a Nation.
