What is wrong from people from the suburbs, or anywhere for that matter? It wasn't their choice to live there, but their parents. If anything I think the person who moves from the middle of Iowa to NYC takes a much bigger risk and is more ballsy than someone just moving from say, Buffalo.

What I resent is that these hipsters move into these coveted areas, and think it's THEIR playground, and everything else is just in the background, including natives, non-hipsters, etc. It's like they just change the channel on TV. They don't feel the need to involve non-hipsters, and act, dress, cry, live poor yet have financial security and rich, snotty attitudes.

I have no problem with a poor person becoming rich and acting aloof. I have no problem with a rich person becoming poor and coming back down to real life.

The majority of the hipsters I've seen are walking hypocrisy. I can't respect it. Many of them have attitudes, as well - as they haven't learned the city lessons of watching your mouth, and the code of respect, helping neighbors, participating in a neighborhood, assimilating into the culture of the neighborhood.

Basically: "I'm going to move in next to you, party all the time, sit at a coffee shop and pretend I pay my own rent, but I'm not talking to you because I'm from the suburbs and I'm connected for life."
Most hipsters I know (not that I know a ton) pay their own rent.

Im saying...


Not all hipsters are from the suburbs. Thats it.


There are a good amount from Rust Belt cities in the North.

It is stupid to judge people on where they grew up or who their parents were. I find that most of the people who do that are under the age of 25. Once you turn 18 you are an adult, you should be judged on what you do and nothing else.

In my experience the trust fund hipster is an urban legend. There are a ton of hipsters in Minneapolis, most of them come from working class or middle class backgrounds. Many of them have hippie or punk rocker parents. Also most of them seem to be genuine free spirits and creative types rather than the posers that the people on the internet seem to think they are.

Someone earlier hit the nail on the head. "Hipster" has really just become a catch phrase for the majority of 20-35 year olds. If you're not a thug, redneck, or a mainstream bro, then you're automatically a hipster. It used to refer specifically to the "i'm better than you because I listen to more obscure music, read books you've never heard of, etc" attitude that a lot of young liberal college aged people have, but now it is used to label the majority of young people.

If you saw me walking down the street you might label me as a "hipster". I wear jeans that are definitely on the skinnier side, v-neck t-shirts and somewhat fashionable sunglasses. I also really love music (I make my own as well), and you might even catch me drinking a PBR if i'm low on cash (although i'd much rather prefer a delicious craft beer). I also have a macbook and a record player in my room.

But if you ever talked to me you would realize that apart from how I dress (and even that varies widely) I don't fit any one mold. I listen to literally every single kind of music (indie bands are probably my least favorite), and I don't have a smug superior attitude.

People just like to categorize and put other people/things into neat little boxes, when in fact we are much more complex than that.

Don't be so quick to judge people.

I was just going to say, doesn't seem like anyone here has any concrete idea of what constitutes a hipster. Please, some odd years ago it was 'emo' that was a popular catch phrase, now it's hipster, and something else will come along that mindless drones will latch on to throw their angst at. C'mon people!

Why are people worried about hipsters? Wannabe ghetto thugs, Neo-Nazis, outlaw motorcycle gangs, and rednecks cause way more problems than hipsters do.
