I guess what I don't understand in all of this is why does it matter? Sure suburbanite psuedo-bohemians are obnoxious people but it sounds to me like you're going to freak out whenever you see a "hipster" where ever you go. Why not just pick a city you're in love with and just accept that some of these people live there? I'd still rather deal with them than gang-bangers and other undesirables.

Newsflash. There will be hipsters, snobs, rich folks, poor folks, super nice folks, rude people, loud people, and smelly people where ever you go.

I'd rather deal with a hipster than with a redneck.

Hipsters are people who couldn't even succeed at being rednecks, so they pose as the opposite. At least rednecks are genuine.

Hipsters are drawn to nice places: the problem is that after the hipsters come in, they cease being nice places!

Whutttt??? You actually suggest people might actually flip coins over such vast differences in ideology. Think that through for a second.

It's often the opposite. A certain brand of so-called hipster is drawn to scuzzy places they can afford on relatively meager salaries. They open coffee shops and artisan taquerias and that sort of thing, and then aspiring hipsters come to the area to check out the bohemian vibe. Then this new crop, with their better jobs, buys condos and rehabs the area and put in a Starbucks and a Chipotle. Then the original crop of hipsters (or their counterparts in a younger generation) gets priced out or gets sick of the so-called "gentrification" and moves to a new scuzzy area.

The ciiiiiiiiircle of liiiiiife.

Right, again there's no real definition for "hipsters," but if we're talking younger urban folks who obsess over art/culture, then this is exactly what they do - "rehab" urban areas. Cheapest transition area rents are what a lot of these people are looking for.

I can't fathom this and the "just like rednecks" statements from this poster, totally baffling
