The only thing that pisses me off is when I go to a show, they look at me like I have 6 heads because I don't dress like them. I'm not sixteen anymore, I don't wear skinny jeans and occasionally I have to shave for work.

They're cool when they get to know you and your tastes but until then... they'll judge a book by its cover like it's nobody's business.

...says the guy who's judging all 'hipsters' without knowing them. Wonderful.

I'm sorry, did I offend you?

It's a big club the preaches individualism, free speech, and open-mindedness... but if you don't dress like them or share their views you can fuck off, lol.

Hipsters are just advanced emo kids, I used to be one of them. Thrifting and vintage clothing was cool ten years ago, too. Just a lot more tattoos nowadays.

ITS NOT EVEN A CLUB. BEARDS AREN'T EVEN HIP REALLY?
Wearing clothing that fits well doesn't make someone a hipster, it makes them fashionable. There are probably 100 different conceptions about what it means to be 'hip' in 2012, how the shit can it be some sort of exclusive club if there are no definitive qualifications of what makes one hip?

If anything, these threads lead me to believe that the definition of a hipster is a derogatory term towards people that the insulter perceives as being cooler/better dressed/possessing better taste and is thus intimidated by them

For the most part, it's definitely a fashion movement more than anything. The emo scene was the same way. You had all these bands with different sounds but the large majority dressed the same.

The problem with the "hipster" scene or even the 'emo' scene is that there's a sense of, "we're better and smarter than you" resonating through the participants. I wasn't any better...

I was a huge Coheed fan but I got all pissy when Good Apollo got popular. Even nowadays when I go see Brand New, there's always the crowd of elitists that get turned off by songs that are played off of YFW because it's not good enough for them.

Henry Rollins basically nails it but I can't say I'm a fan of him either. He's also got an elitist attitude.

Is a portion of this article predicated on Family Guy having been consistently funny and intelligent? Holy shit.

Come on, how can you not like when the snarky talking dog and the effete talking baby mention a b-list celebrity from the '80s? I guess your sense of humour just isn't refined enough.

I don't think many people like snobbery and elitism, but it's kind of self-defeating to then project it onto other people because they wear a certain kind of clothes or like certain bands or have beards or whatever.
