n. (1) A youngish person who, in matters of social, musical, fashionable, and professional taste, considers oneself to be "post-ironic" (i.e. believes both social practice and social commentary are equally nonsensical) while blowing off the paradox or irresolvable problem that no such thing as an ironic gesture about irony can actually exist. (2) An individual exhibiting signs of late-capitalist malaise about one's inexorable and total involvement in standard-normative fields of production and consumption.
Hipsters normally exhibit a variety of tragicomic symptoms, including: Retro fashion / Denial of identity / Embrace of outward poverty while retaining a measure of hidden affluence / Rigid standards of social, professional, and political flexibility / Joyous self-realization in sadness / Personal fulfillment in the detection of non-transcendent gestures
