|My thinking about all those hair jokes and the process of making an alteration to your appearance that provokes responses that are varied in nature but consistently apparent has lead me to hatch a new word:|
That is, the alternately glamorous or cantankerous feeling you get when you pierce your hair or dye your hair or cross dress or get a mohawk or whatever and you are enhanced and empowered for having physically distinguished yourself as different from the pack and simultaneously at a heightened state of awareness that leaves you ready to defend yourself -whether verbally or physically- against the acerbic reactions of the conformist demimonde that is sure to scorn you and your new look.
What hipster doesn't need this word?
