The Spaniards didn't like native Americans but still slept with their women. The mongoose didn't like Chinese, Persians, Russians. Indians, Turks, poles, Koreans Arabs and etc but they still slept their enemies women. The soviets didn't like the Nazis but they still had sex with Nazi Germans. If one hipster chick passes my way and aconversations starts I will try to charm her with Indies film talk and some philosophy.

How could you understand what New Yorkers think of hipsters? You don't live here. You're getting to be like that wacky gun guy who kept mouthing off in the NY forum.

Did I leave anything out?
Could you link me to a photo of a hipster in the Al Qaeda scarf? I am soooo out of it and hardly ever take the L train anymore.

My opinion. . . .

That word has become a new class of stereotyping.

You own an iPhone/Apple Products ---> Hipster.
You honestly dislike a lot of "Mainstream" artist (because the majority of them suck. Lady Gaga & Adele are exceptions) ---> Hipster.
You're wearing All-Stars (converse) ----> Extreme Hipster.
etc.

In my opinion, it's tiring. But I've been called a 'douche-bag hipster' by my cousin and others before so maybe I don't notice the stuff some of you guys do. Or maybe I just don't care to notice it? I don't know.

Yeah, I don't care how you feel, besides I probably know more about nyc than you do, but that isn't really important...you guys enjoy the patting yourself on the backs.

The best way to tell a hipster by its iphone is to see wether or not they have specific hipsterish apps such as Instagram, hipstamatic or flipboard which are all photo sharing apps but also provides graphic altering to make pictures look old school. Vintage is very popular among hipsters while keeping and looking cool with the new like getting a new iphone every year upon release. Also just be lucky that SXSW is around the corner many Hipsters are going to flock down to Austin in the coming days. I too also wanna check out SXSW but maybe next time.

I just know I would never be classified as a hipster. If I go to Los Angeles or wherever, it's not gonna happen. So people need to stop saying it's becoming a "stereotype"

I'm a "young" person, but I don't dress like a hipster. I think that's the main deciding factor in one's eyes. I dress like if I grew up in NYC, with "urban" (I guess you could say) fashion. That sure as hell doesn't mean I'm uneducated.

The holier than thou atttitude that if you're not one of them you're a knuckle dragging, uneducated blue collar townie. To that I say they can all kiss my Puerto Rican behind.
And this is exactly how I feel. If I ever go live anywhere else (Los Angeles looking more likely), I'm never gonna complain about lack of amenities (whatever that means, because last I checked, hispanics/blacks also need to eat), or lack of freaking cafes, or "hip" places.

What is a "hip" place anyway?

A Thai, Sushi or a Tex Mex Joint, even a roadside food truck that sells kosher and organic cupcakes can be hip. Tapas, beer brewing, farms, beer gardens, book stores, cheese factories can all be hip. Even Apple stores and American Apperal is hip for Hipsters to hang out at. Hipster movement is only a fad and will probably go away in time or if not another scenester movement culture will be burn out of the hipster one. The only culture I miss is the goth punk type which dominated the village and the NYC public school system, those guys and gals were cool. I rarelly see any goths unless they all moved to Florida or the West Coast?
