Well there you go, this is why NY'ers hate transplants: they think they know more about our city than those of us that have spent our whole lives here! The best part? This one doesn't even live here yet!

You're going to fit in perfect with the other native-hating transplants.

If you want to impress a hipster chick I recommend reading the following books,

Tractatus by Wittgenstein
Sein und Zeit (Being and Time, if you did not know) by Heidegger

Martin Heidegger (philosopher and Nazi)

You forgot Nietzsche. I have that book already.

Read that over and over again and tell me how that sounds. This is exactly the attitude that makes you so unpopular. Your condescending, look at me, I know more than you do attitude. You're going to tell a guy that's been born and raised here that you know more about his city? You may have researched and know where all the roof top gardens and trendy art galleries are in Bushwich and Williamsburg but you don't know the real pulse and culture of NYC like him. You know transplant I'm smarter than the natives culture in NYC.

this thread is a treasure trove.

Look how superior we all feel to young people choosing to eat healthy, use public bike lanes and sometimes create businesses to form a community in the neighborhood they live in. They also read and listen to non-mainstream music. Futile things, of course, as they only like nazi authors and "douche" rock.

Oh, and I forgot "hipster apps" on their iphones like Instagram. Which opened my eyes to the fact that 80% on Twitter must be hipsters since they all use Instagram to share photos. I deleted my account promptly as I must not be associated with this vermin.

Here is an updated list of why we are superior to bearded transplant hipsters:

-we can dominate them physically in a fight

-we don't like to explore new avenues in music, literature and art since all of these things are pretentious by default and produced by plaid-shirt-wearing douches.

-we hate that they demanded bike lanes and the city readily and promptly accomodated them (might I propose that we switch our attitude and actually embrace these bike lanes? Someone posited that they give a false sense of security. Good! Since only bearded transplant yupsters use them (after all, they demanded them and they were exclusively carved out for them), they can get run over by cars more easily and stop to annoy us all)

-we hate that they eat organic and drink coffee. Personally, I only want to eat mechanically separated meat from antibiotic eating, corn fed, inhumanely treated animals, as it tastes much better. As for health benefits, I don't really care. I'm a real nonsense red-blooded American. We get fat and diabetic. And coffee? Should only come from the breakfast guys in the streets. You know, New York style.

-we hate that they have businesses in the neighborhoods that they dwell in, thus impeaching our constitutional right to pursue happiness. They do not have the same constitutional rights, since they are not like us and are douches.

-we imagine that they look down on us blue collar workers with disdain. It HAS to be, right? If we feel superior to them, they must also feel superior to us. Otherwise they might actually be nice people. But that can't be. Because we are superior.

-we hate the books they read (Nazi philosophers! Non-American authors!) and the music they listen to.

-we imagine they demand change in their neighborhoods and obtain them readily because they must be guilty of something evil. Which they are. Automatically. Because they have beards and wear skinny jeans.

-which brings me to our next complaint: they all and exclusively wear have facial hair, skinny jeans (which boggles our mind), Woody Allen glasses (another one of those pretentious intellectual so-called artists, btw) and plaid shirts.

-we hate that they use apple products.

Did I forget something? I think that covers it pretty well so far.

Keep them coming, fellow superior-to-hipster-feelers! I will readily update the above list.

Do you have a list for "pre-transplants?" They may or may not be hipsters after all.

*gets popcorn*

I could come up with a dozen arguments as to how it's not the organic food, bike paths, or literature and music that is the issue, but I will let someone else handle it. I have enough rep points from making this argument numerous times on other threads.

You may or may not choose to contribute to our superiority list, but I sure would like to hear why you are superior to those douches.

Well "Pre-Transplants" don't even live here and they still bother us with their nonsense, give opinions on our current topics of discussion, and worst of all, believe that they know more about NYC than we do! I'd say the last one alone is reason to hate on them.

For the record, I have nothing against hipsters per se. I hate pretentious, snobby people of all types though, so any hipsters who fit that bill have my disdain. Although far from a hipster (I have a concelaed carry permit, enough said), I am fanatical about Apple products, so we have something in common.
