Forget everything you know about hipsters its all wrong. Hipsters are the third gender of the human race, these individuals segregate themselves from the other two genders by sporting their own gender specific fashion, culture and music. The hipster gender has to this day baffled the scientific community for they play no part in reproduction nor contribute to society what so ever (because they usually have no job and live off their parents trust fund ... its fucking true). The usual human hipster would generally perceive members of other genders as inferior, rejecting all ideas and culture of the genders and referring to it as being "too mainstream" a term they use for something that doesn't appeal to their gender much like a man playing with barbie dolls or a woman who is somewhere other than the kitchen. Hipsters are usually found boasting about their great knowledge on pointless topics that most people wouldn't really give a shit about and their useless philosophy/art degree that they cant and wont use. Scientist theorize that the reason the hipster gender is not found in the wild is because the members of the gender had long ago died off. The hipster lifestyle is not compatible in the wild for there are no Cafes, Parliament Cigarettes, Crappy Indie Music and all carnivorous hipster animals would have perished from refusing to consume meat. Also like the whole population of the United States all hipsters have no clue as to the correct usage of the word "irony"

Those who turn their skinny-jean-encased-knees inward in order to look awkward. Wearing large black glasses with no lenses in order to take digital photographs then manipulate the photographs using photoshop. Those who wear Toms. These are common accessories of the every day ambient hipster.
The guy next to you who wears his headphones around his neck and blasts some obscure band that he will claim you don't know about is a hipster. Notice his skin tight V neck shirt. Vintage clothing ensues. A hipster will most likely never associate him or herself with the word hipster. In fact, he or she may raise their cigarette scented voice in anger in the fact that you are calling them a hipster. This shouldn't scare you because they are, of course, all pacifists and wouldn't dare lay a finger on you. That would dirty up their brand new self designed Toms.
"I don't give two cares what you think, I'm going to be a photographer. I'm going to be a fashion model, in France. I'm going to sit in my room, sip on black tea, and listen to my favorite boy sing my favorite songs. My eyes will be large, and my hair will be long before it becomes very very short. I'm going to take a roadtrip to Elizabethtown, and take polariods at every stop on the way. These are common hipster facebook about me's.

I will be as old fashioned as I want to be, and I'm going to change your life, in ten days or less."

A continuation of the Bohemian "tradition" originating in France around the turn of the 20th Century. These folks were anti-bourgeois, anti-Victorian, and anti-traditionalist. They were avant-garde artists who disdained what they considered ordinary but ended up in a futile cycle of radical change for the sake of change soon drifting into silliness and nihilism.

The Beat Generation and then the Hippie movement tried to pick up this stand of thought and way of life in the mid twentieth century. The existential hero who is cool and detached, not caring what anyone else thinks of him is also a mid century fashion that picked up on this theme.

The cool hipster assumes a persona of crass selfishness, irresponsibility, mindless rebellion, cynicism, ironic mocking of anything meaningful or noble, cold reserve, uncaring indifference toward others while paradoxically advocating a politics of compassion toward certain groups favored by leftists, a dull, dumb countenance, and most of all, being constantly out of sorts--a real sour puss. They usually take on a studied disheveled appearance to further the affection of not caring what others think of them. They also prefer to dress in black.

Of course, most of these folks are as phony as you can get. They look as though they are dead on the inside--enthusiasm or being earnest or being genuine are completely missing from their emotional repertoire. They shun kindness,loyalty, spirituality, or empathy as uncool.
"Man, like, I dig myself and fuck you, man, like."--An example of a hipster sentence. Complete sentences, of sorts, are few and far between for these folks who are too cool to talk in coherent language.

Fresh out of college mid 20’s people who claim to dislike all that is mainstream or popular, which is usually reflected in their taste of indie music and how quickly they’ll shun a group the moment they end up on a soundtrack, TV commercial/show or on the radio. They also dislike mainstream fashion which makes them easily spotted since the guys all wear the higher-then-clam-digger style pants while the girls all wear extremely thick rimmed glasses. (Making them conformist in their own group).

The surest sign of a hipster is their dislike for everything corporate so while they may never want to buy anything from a Starbucks, Gap or Pottery Barn, they will have no problem working for them since they always seem to be flat broke and complain about having financial problems, even though they have mom & dad paid BA.

Note: Hipsters dislike the title of hispster and are irritated to be called one.
Person: hey, I really like that Garden State soundtrack
Hipster: The Shins suck now for letting their song be on that album, how dare they try and make a buck.
Person: you’re such a typical Hipster
Hipster: I am NOT a hipster!

You, for reading ironic, pseudo-intellectual dictionary entries on the word "hipster".
"These dictionary entries on hipsters are so comical! I'm going to email this link to 800 of my closest acquaintances, head to Value Village, grab a chai and then play kickball in a headband and short-shorts."
