“I can’t believe how everyone is loving Macklemore now, I loved them 8 months ago when they first came out with Thrift Shop.” Hipsters are one cult of the millennial generation. They believe they are creators of style and movement but are easily offended.
So I came up with 3 simple rules when handling a hipster.
1. Don’t call a hipster a hipster.
A hipster will never accept who they are. You will be left there listening to a self-righteous, suburban princess who never really struggled and never will argue for over an hour that she is not a hipster. Why do they do this? Because hipsters love to prove that they are not hipsters more than they like to complain about how slow the mainstream is.
2. Don’t have an opinion around a hipster.
The moment you formulate words into a sentence you are setting yourself up for failure. Honestly, I cannot explain why a hipster becomes offended. Personally, I love it when people tell me they love what I love and I will reply to the praise with, “As you should.” But this “I liked them before it was cool” shit is stupid. Hipsters did you not enjoy your experience whether it be music or beer? I bet you called it cool... wait that’s too mainstream. You called the music enticing and pleasurable because you are a pretentious asshole.
3. Do not ask where they get their clothes... actually just do not talk to a hipster.
If you want to keep your dignity, maybe a “friend” or perhaps if you want to keep your knuckles intacted, do yourself a favor and do not talk to hipsters. When conversing with a true hipster, a common person’s IQ lowers due to lack of inspiration from forced listening. The ramble of nonsense is funny the first time but turns into more intense pain with every proceeding conversation. Talking to a hipster is more than opening a can of worms, it is like opening a can of ants or bees because you will never get that wasted time back.
In conclusion, trend setters are what this cult has become. Maybe it started as poor individuals that bought clothes from thrift shops and borrowed from grandpa’s attic. However, now a hipster can buy all their clothing from Urban Outfitters - the store where style dies. I always get mad when a hipster where’s fake glasses because he does not know what it is like to be blind. He does not know what it is like to be mocked for most of your childhood because of eyewear. I agree glasses are cool because you buy one pair and do not need to replace them every month, but hipsters change their frames everyday.
Periwinkle suits and oversized “ironic” sweaters are 2 reasons why I wear black.
