I'm a young educated urban professional making descent money, wears corporate clothing during the week and bannana on the weekends. But according to some of the definitions on this thread since I am a native Brooklynite, couldn't pay for college got financial aide, still live in Brooklyn, and I'm not white technically I'm not a yuppie? So according to Queensgirls definitions, I am a Yuppie/Luppie because I'm latino/Dinks because I have a girlfriend dual income/Bridge and Tunnel because I live in Brooklyn but I choose too not because I can not afford Manhattan. But would that make me a hipster because I am currently gentrifing a hood I would not normally have moved to otherwise and have a hipster girlfriend? So which am I? And what would my kids be?

I think there are more Yupsters or Huppies or Hushpuppies (or whatever you want to call them) than people would like to admit -- that is, a combo of both.

For instance, what would you call a late-30s/early 40s creative professional DINK who lives in an urban neighborhood, likes indie/folk-rock music, has 6-figure income, wears jeans to work, is a middle-of-the-road Democrat and consumes alcohol and coffee in nearly the same quantities?

I don't know anyone like that, I'm just askin'...
