What the hell is a Hipster?


I must be getting really old and out of tune. Until today, I thought that a hipster was just someone who decides to dress like a lumberjack. Beared, boots, general lumberjack clothes = hipster.

Today, though, I apparently offended a hipster by suggesting that the look is just an image thing. Then I got a lecture about how some hipsters are vegan, some hipsters are gay, some hipsters are anti-establishment etc etc.

But wait. Some regular humans are vegan, gay, and anti-establishment. This being the case, my point stands. Hipsters are just people who dress like lumberjacks. What am I missing?

Blooming millennials. Youth and hair is wasted on them.


I thought it was a replication as much as possible of the 1960s both in dress, hair, and posters in one’s bedroom-- a bastardization of the word hippie.


And the cycle continues - round and round!


You need a summer of love to have a summer of love. I find hipsters more equinox of ego. - At least the ones I’ve met like today.

That said it is mulberry season. This being the case, maybe I could make up a batch of homemade trippy potion and try and convert a few into real hippies…


@misscrystal Are you allowed to use that word! :open_mouth:


Of course, she is. She’s Miss Crystal and the word was used correctly in a contextual sense. She didn’t call anyone an actual bar steward.


Of course - I taught metalwork for years - always brought a giggle when discussing a file with that name. It is a legitimate word, as well as being seen as a derogatory swear word.


I know. Am sure there are other words like that. Maybe we should start a new post with trying to list them and all have a giggle! :grin:

Edit: I can think of one already … “Anal.”


Erm - that word only has one meaning as far as know…


The other one is anal-retentive.


This ls getting like the health check up thread and the emoji thread - please stop now!


Don’t worry … I will.


Thank you! :slight_smile:

Now about hipsters - here they dress like lumberjacks, have lots of tattoos and open cafes selling breakfast cereals for £5 a bowl - mental!
