it is an obvious that groups get hate: hicks, nerds, popular, and hipsters.
now most of these groups have it coming; hicks are rude, nerds mock people's inferior intelligence, populars are just so pretty, and hipsters they can be very arrogant.
but what are hipsters?
but then you have the response to this subculture..http://www.tshirtsbuy.com/T-shirts-7/DT76-i-hate-hipsters.jpg
While mainstream society of the 2000s (decade) had been busying itself with reality television, dance music, and locating the whereabouts of Britney Spears’s underpants, an uprising was quietly and conscientiously taking place behind the scenes. Long-forgotten styles of clothing, beer, cigarettes and music were becoming popular again. Retro was cool, the environment was precious and old was the new ‘new’. Kids wanted to wear Sylvia Plath’s cardigans and Buddy Holly’s glasses — they revelled in the irony of making something so nerdy so cool. They wanted to live sustainably and eat organic gluten-free grains. Above all, they wanted to be recognised for being different — to diverge from the mainstream and carve a cultural niche all for themselves. For this new generation, style wasn’t something you could buy in a department store, it became something you found in a thrift shop, or, ideally, made yourself. The way to be cool wasn’t to look like a television star: it was to look like as though you’d never seen television."
are you a hipster? is it bad to be a hipster? what is a hipster?
Quick Note: Hipsters i think really became popular with the internet explosion. Hipster, individuality and non-mainstream, "indie" all celebrate qualities that everyone already has. That sense of difference from "the rest" In the not so long ago, it was very difficult to celebrate individual quirks, to do so would risk social rejection as the "odd one". Think a group in a bar shunning out the man wearing an orange top hat. Maybe there are others who like orange top hats, but they won't admit it, cause, they might be physically blocked out. Then comes the internet, were many people admit they love orange top hats without the risk of social rejection. Individuals find each other, groups form and presto, non-mainstream groups are favoured, Hipsters find other "Hipsters", sub-cultures form rapidly, including the Orange Top Hats. Now 20, 30 people are seen wearing Orange Top Hats in the city perhaps. Odd enough to be an in-joke, common enough to feel part of the group---> The Hipsters
What really annoys me is when people are like, "I'm a hipster," just because they use a font that is the definition of a fad.
