Does anybody else see the contradiction inherent to hating both hipsters and bros?

It's good to see NPR get into serious journalism. They've wasted decades with their frivolous reporting on useless and facile "news".

Why should there be an contradiction in being averse to two equally douchey subcultures.

Are they the new hipsters now?

Are we supposed to hate them for their personal tastes despite never meeting any in real life?

Help me out here!

Sorry loses instant credibility with inclusion of Tebow as a "bro"

Two of the instant disqualifiers on my mind are temperance and abstinence.

I assume this is some sort of marketing for Lochte... Whoever his is...

the general rule of thub is; if a fully grown male uses the term "bro" they shall receive one cockpunch.  If the offending male then suggests the term was used in "ironicly", three subsequent cockpunches shall result.

/Don't waste energy hating these people.  Mocking is much more fun.

That's called a 'superset' because it contains all elements from all other sets (Jocky, Preppy, Sneezy, etc.).

I've lived here for 3 years, am dating a Chicago native, and have no idea what he's talking about. May be my girlfriend does

I think "Bro," like hipster, means something different to everyone who says it. To me, it's a sad generation of young men struggling to make sense of their masculinity in a wider culture that undervalues it.

Not quite a Venn diagram; they have to show all the possible combinations; 16 if there's 4 sets. This one has only 14.  Missing Jockish, Preppy, not Dudely, and not Stoner-ish and not Jockish, not Preppy, Dudely, and Stoner-ish.

Pretty sure that being able to make that particular argument would exclude you from the bro diagram entirely.

Meh.

Internet-dweebs mocking people they don't actually know based on categories.

They're from a different culture than you, and express themselves differently.  You're not part of their group, so you hate them.

Big whoop.  You're arseholes.

Not because you have your own culture (of memes and sarcastic 'csbs' and casual superficial misogyny etc.), but because you hate other individuals based upon cultural expressions, their 'inside jokes' and 'codes' that you're not a part of.

Dave Matthews Band's not that bad.  If you hate them because of how much people you don't know like them, then you're an ass.

These folks speak a slightly different language - it's like hating someone from the south for speaking with a twang, or someone from France for speaking French.

Stop being judgemental, generalizing arses.

DMB is pretty bad music and I'd estimate that Farkers would classify me as more of a "bro" than 99% of people on this site

/DMB is tenable if it's pre 1998

I had dinner with an old friend in "Bro-boken" last week. I do honestly believe its gotten worse.

What's the female version of a "bro"? Cause I saw many of them too.

There's a flow chart for this.  Something that deals with who's better than who.  I want to say the bottom was something like "writers of furry erotic star trek fiction who write themselves into the story"
