You're such a "Hipster"...
What is a Hipster?
A person who wears, thick rimmed glasses, and listens to indie rock?
Why are people so offended when they are referred to as a Hipster?
Urban Dictionary defines a Hipster as:
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...
I don't know where you live, or who your friends are but the school I go to is often classified as a hipster college. Other colleges even make memes about our school to make fun of how non "main-stream" we are.
What I just can't understand is why people are automatically offended when someone calls them a "hipster".
After pondering over this for a while I've come to a conclusion...
Being called a hipster is no different then being called girly, or nerdy or a punk. It's simply another way to classify people and try to place a label on someone's life.
If you enjoy your life, the way you live, the way you act, then don't stop doing those things because someone tries to put a label over your head.
Be yourself darling because, frankly, everyone else is already taken.
