On Hipsters. And why some of you need to go take a look at yourselves

By johnboy 30 April 2013 37

The word hipster gets overused on this site as much as anywhere.

Often by angry people who think their own ignorance is a justification of their opinions.

In any event Cracked have done an excellent job explaining the term’s misuse which I thought worthy of sharing with you all.

(Mild language warning)

hipsters

What’s Your opinion?

So basically hipsters are the opposite end of the spectrum to a Bogan.

Got it.

yet both of them describe affectations in dress and behaviour that sends other tribes into paroxysms of rage, how peculiar

While they are at other ends, the spectrum is actually more like a horseshoe, so they are very close together, but separated by a gap which will never be bridged.

Best analogy of the day

Seconded.

I have a mate who refers to anyone who wears chino’s or has an SS haircut as a hipster. The term hipster seems to have completely lost all meaning.

What does SS mean in this context?

When did Flannies and mustaches move from the Bogan column to the Hipster column?

Kambah looks a lot more ironic that it did this morning.

Since when did wearing a falnnie become Bogan?

I wear them to keep warm. I think Bogan is used far too often too.

You just don’t like being seen for what you are

Says the hipster….

And proud of it!

No true hipster would allow themselves to be defined.

To quote Urban Dictionary:

Hipster’s [sic] can’t be defined because then they’d fit in a category, and thus be too mainstream.

Are you trying to define me?

Well I guess this somes up the spirit of this thread:

Flannies are the traditional hallmark of Westies, along with ug boots, durries, and mullets.

Over the years commentators with a poor grasp have melded the two.

Bogans wear anything from oakleys, thongs and singlets through to hi-vis, suits, polo shirts, and Australian flags.

Bogans vs hipsters. I’m picturing it as a hilarious break dance battle.

Generally I like the bogan laid-back attitude and the hipster open mindedness. But I guess we all have a bit of bogan and a bit of hipster in us, right?

So have the hipsters – if they ever had any.

My guess is that you think anyone who dresses a bit alternative or has a trendy hair cut is a hipster. That seems to be the generalization on the RA anyway.
