LOL! What's more funny than trying so hard not to be mainstream that you become a caricature of mock individuality? Rebel against one clique by blindly associating yourself with another one? Yeh, it makes total sense.
Edit: Guess what I'm saying is taht if you happen to like scarves and big glasses, don't be afraid of people calling you a hipster.
And if you happen to like some minstream music, media, and sedate clothes, don't be afraid to admit it.
If you listen to yourself, you'll probably fidn some popular culture stuff worth your time, and some lesser known, less popular stuff that you like too. If you pick your interests to make sure you are in with your clique, whether it's yuppies, emo, hipster, redneck or whatever, you are a poser.
Well I obviously wasn't saying anyone who wears those things was a hipster as a fact, thats just a pretty stereptypical hipster getup. Especially the skinny jeans, google "hipster" and you'll see it. Stereotypes of course are just stereotypes.
And just because 75% of Australian males between 18 - 25 yo wears skinny jeans and v-neck shirts, they can't be called hipsters?
Well... yeah. Isn't the premise that hipsters hate mainstream stuff?
Yes, but that is in Australia. What if I told you only 5% of males in South Africa wears skinny jeans and v-neck shirts? Since it's not mainstream (or rather in this case, can't afford it [yes, i'm a terrible person for insulting my own country]), does that make them hipster?
It's kinda paradoxical: If hipsterism becomes mainstream, does that mean they're not hipsters anymore? And that other "normal" folk becomes the hipster?
