Being elitist over hipsters is so hipster of you.

Education-minded? Many are college dropouts which is why you see them working at Whole Foods, coffee shops, and used bookstores. Free-thinking? Is that a joke?

Once again, nothing wrong with hipsters or hipster culture. It actually brings a lot to an area. The elitism though gets under my skin. Hipsters are not a higher class of people like they think they are.

Hipster is to big of a damn label lol, hipster this hipster that... boy oh boy. Many of my friends have degrees and people call them hipsters, I told someone I like a certain band and then they called me a hipster lol. What is and what isn't a hipster lol? Young people who move to bad hoods in major cities are hipsters and looked down upon for no reason, if they aren't a hipster then they are looked down upon for being a yuppie... Sheesh. I've got friends of both types, none of them come off acting better than me etc, they are often nice and friendly if you don't judge off the bat.

What is frustrating/what I dislike about the hipster crowd is the neverending, empty pursuit of being different. This isn't to say I am against or dislike people who are different...but it seems like a lot of the people that fit the "hipster" description often dress/act different solely for the sake of making others say "wow, he's different!". It's annoying.

Plenty of other trendy "epidemics" are sweeping the country at an alarming rate and hipsters would be a welcome change from many of those.
The "obesity", "loud exhaust on every vehicle", and the "MMA/UFC/Tap-Out aficionado" epidemics are ones that would affect many of us to some varying degree.

Seems like there's very little places left to run away to from these.

Arrogance is always unpleasant to behold.
The sword cuts both ways on this thread.

We are over run by "MMA/UFC/Tap-Out aficionados" every weekend here in Huntington Beach. Wish these aholes and wannabees would just stay in the 909.

I think a lot of young people are just living their lives as inexpensively, comfortably and exciting as they can while not feeding or even avoiding "the system". At least that's what I'm doing.
Twenty years before the massive influx of hipsters to Philadelphia, there were many urban pioneers and artists living inexpensively in Philadelphia, living outside the system, but they didn't all dress the same, as hipsters tend to do.

Haha true. I'm sure some people thought of my parents as "Hipsters", moving from DC into what was a pretty rough yet progressive neighborhood in Philly in the early 1980's.
