This sudden anti-hipsterism is getting old.
Hipsters aren't anything new, so neither is hipster hatred.
Really, it's just dormant jealousy.
Could be. Or maybe people just aren't impressed with others who wear "clever" T-shirts and act like ironic anti-heroes.
You wish you could be the one who makes uncool things cool.
Hipsters annoy me because they try to be condescending. They use words like "sheep" to describe other people at their community college, and since they are taking a sociology class, they suddenly think they are really deep and sensitive.
But you lack the charisma to pull it off, so who hate on those who do.
Charisma is subjective. Just because people don't laugh at your jokes doesn't mean they don't understand them. The jokes aren't funny. Just because people don't like your music doesn't make it art, and it doesn't mean the rest of the world "doesn't understand". We aren't all going to be tattooed with barcodes, and made to wear uniforms because we like a mainstream song. Hipsters need to chill out with that "down with the system" mentality. You're lucky you get any rights at all you spoiled hermit.
Things hipsters could do to gain respect:
Number 1: Stop reminding us of how cool you think you are just because you bought some sunglasses with clear lens. That's real fuckin' effective... NOT!
Number 2: Stop trying to be so ironically clever and funny. Not everything has to be a joke. Oh, and stop laughing at your own jokes too.
Number 3: Stop being a music snob. Just because you're a fan of a band who has 2 fans doesn't make it the best band ever.
Number 4: Stop being a movie snob. Just because the movie is 3 minutes long, in black and white, and doesn't make sense doesn't mean you're super cool for "getting it".
Number 5: Stop being a general douche-bag. If you're going to go out in public with your hair dyed all the colors of the rainbow, with huge holes in your ears, we aren't going to talk to you. It's just the way it is. But this mentality of yours that the world "doesn't understand" and is "bleak" is a direct result of you purposely acting like a weirdo. It's not like you ever strike up a conversation with the rest of us. Are we supposed to understand your plight when you never say two fucking words to anyone?
There are other things I could say, but I have to take a piss.
