this label is so pervasive in our society and often carries a note of disdain/condemnation, but is there any clear definition?
is a guy with a beard/fitted pants/leather boots a hipster? is a person who wears wide-legged flood pants and skate shoes a hipster? is someone a hipster for dying their hair or wearing a beanie? do you reckon 'they' all only listen to a certain type of music, or share specific pastimes?
so many different styles and tastes get shoved under this one misnomer. it seems like a word that is simply used to describe "someone who makes me uncomfortable because they don't dress like me and my friends".
