18. i've found myself saying "HIPSTERSAYSWHAT?" alot lately.
19. .. i was called a hipster today. here!
Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that
value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of
art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. The greatest
concentrations of hipsters can be found living in the Williamsburg, Wicker Park, and
Mission District neighborhoods of major cosmopolitan centers such as New York,
Chicago, and San Francisco respectively. Although "hipsterism" is really a state of
mind,it is also often intertwined with distinct fashion sensibilities. Hipsters
reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be
seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans,
old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses. Both hipster men and women
sport similar androgynous hair styles that include combinations of messy shag cuts
and asymmetric side-swept bangs. Such styles are often associated with the work of
creative stylists at urban salons, and are usually too "edgy" for the
culturally-sheltered mainstream consumer. The "effortless cool" urban bohemian look
of a hipster is exemplified in Urban Outfitters and American Apparel ads which cater
towards the hipster demographic. Despite misconceptions based on their aesthetic
tastes, hipsters tend to be well educated and often have liberal arts degrees, or
degrees in maths and sciences, which also require certain creative analytical
thinking abilities. Consequently many hipsters tend to have jobs in the music, art,
and fashion industries. It is a myth that most hipsters are unemployed and live off
of their parent's trust funds.
Hipsters shun mainstream societal conventions that apply to dating preferences and
traditional "rules" of physical attraction. It is part of the hipster central dogma
not to be influenced by mainsream advertising and media, which tends to only promote
ethnocentric ideals of beauty. The concepts of androgyny and feminism have influenced
hipster culture, where hipster men are often as thin as the women they date. The
muscular and athletic all-American male ideal is not seen as attractive by confident
and culturally-empowered hipster women who instead view them as symbols of male
oppression, sexism, and misogyny. Likewise, culturally-vapid sorority-type girls with
fake blond hair, overly tanned skin, and "Britney Spears tube-tops" are not seen as
attractive by cultured hipster males who instead see them as symbols of female
insecurity, low self-esteem, and lack of cultural intelligence and independent
thinking. Hipsters are also very racially open-minded, and the greatest number of
interracial couples in any urban environment are typically found within the hipster
Although hipsters are technically conformists within their own subculture, in
comparison to the much larger mainstream mass, they are pioneers and leaders of the
latest cultural trends and ideals. For example, the surge of jeans made to look old
and worn (i.e. "distressed"), that have become prevalent at stores such as The Gap,
American Eagle, Abercrombie and Fitch, and Hollister, were originally paraded by
hipsters who shopped in thrift stores years before such clothing items were mass
produced and sold to the mainstream consumer. The true irony here is that many of the
detractors of hipster culture are in fact unknowingly following a path that hipsters
have carved out years before them. This phenomena also applies to music as well, as
many bands have become successful and known to mainstream audiences only because
hipsters first found and listened to them as early-adopters of new culture. Once
certain concepts of fashion and music have reached mainstream audiences, hipsters
move on to something new and improved.
Because of the rise of various online photo-blog and social networking sites,
insights into urban hipster culture is reaching sheltered suburban audiences at an
exponential rate. Cultural "norms" have been deconstructed by hipster culture as a
whole. Hipsterism is often dismissed as just an image thing by some, but the culture
as a whole is effecting changes in society, leading to feelings of insecurity and
resentment in people who are no longer a part of the cultural ruling class. For
example, a lot of anti-hipster sentiment evidently comes from culturally-clueless
suburban frat boy types who feel that the more sensitive, intelligent, and culturally
aware hipster ideal threatens their insecure sense of masculinity. Anti-hipster
sentiment often comes from people who simply can't keep up with social change and are
envious of those who can.
