Huh? Whatever happened to live and let live? What do you care how someone is dressed? Some of y'all sound judgemental and sanctimonious if you ask me.

Not all of them are suburban kids from MN or whatever.

A lot are people who actually grew up inner city (namely Rust Belt cities like Cleveland, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Detroit, etc.) who go to other cities because of better opportunity.

Theyre essentially robbed of that kind of lifestyle in their hometowns.

It's trendy to bag on hipsters these days, but I'll take them over rednecks, yuppies, ghetto trash and popped-collar douchebags any time.

I find most of them to be fairly nice and I agree they're harmless, yet I still cringe inside when I see a gaggle of them. I think it's more the fashion/lifestyle affectations that are blatently impractical that I find most annoying. Things like bicycles with no brakes on busy city streets (stupid and dangerous) to wool hats on warm days to nut-crushingly tight pants that absolutely can not be comfortable unless one is hung like a chickpea.

You are the "Hallelujiah" to my previous "amen"! This post mirrors my viewpoint to a 'T'!!

I've never had many issues from hipsters. Of course some have annoyed me, but not all of them. I've had relatively few problems from hipsters. I don't know if this is because I'm the "nerdy" Black guy type, but I have had more problems from rednecks, and ghetto "thug wannabes". I've never been assaulted or harmed by a hipster. I've been assaulted,beaten up and even robbed by persons of the other two subcultures I mentioned.

Don't get to comfortable most hipsters round here are college educated people. So they very well could take your job. They are a trillion times better than having gang bangers around. They are artistic kids who are expressing themselves

I'll give you most of that... except I'm not seeing anything really creative coming out of these "artistic" types.. Most of the "creative" stuff I see and here is regurgitated swill and rip offs.

Well to fair they generally are able to get their local pubs to have pretty damn good beer lists or just the PBRs make me have fond memories childhood and my fathers cheap beer. Come to think of it he had mutten chops and drank PBR, hmmm.

Again on this topic, why are they really bothersome. Most are college educated and in general are cleaning up nabes. On the whole not a bad thing to me.

Plus mutten chops - like cow bell just never enough
