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"
Hipster: I wear prescription glasses even tho i dont even need them cos im being ironic hurr derrrrp.

Someone who is part of a teenage subculture. For example skaters, hip-hoppers, mods, hippies, emos, jocks, ravers, metal-fans, rockers, geeks, punks, nerds, couch-potatoes, demosceners.

These scenes usually have adapted to a certain style of clothing, music, sports, behaviour which the teenagers following that scene support, as opposed to the mainstream teenagers who wear expensive clothes from brands known for child-labour, music dictated by the big music companies, thinking they are unique that way and making fun of the "hipsters" because they go their own way.
"Look at that emo guy over there with his thrift shop clothing, totally a hipster"

"So what, at least he's not walking around with $200 Evisu jeans and an iPod like you do!"

a pretentious unemployed person who somehow acquired an extravagant apartment in Manhattan, Williamsburg, or Park Slope, listens to obscure indie and foreign music, says they like photography, art, and film, and does not own a television. Often seen eating a banana while walking.
person: what's your favorite band?
hipster: I would tell you, but you wouldn't know them.
person: oh. my favorite band is AFI
hipster: AFI?!?!?! THAT'S MAINSTREAM!

NonHipster: Hey, skinny dude in the tight pants! You're a hipster, right?

Hipster: Oh fuck no.

Derogatory term used by (usually) fat, ugly, chronically insecure idiots who have a preference for mor and pseudo-"alternative" musics such as Nickelback etc., reality TV, and sexual repression. Commonly describes individuals who inspire jealously in these boring middle-class twats because they creatively avoid full-time work, are not afraid to be different, and (usually) have taste. As there is no "hipster" ideology as such this term could be applied to a miriad of different groups who may offend any number of social conventions. Interestingly, the word is derived from the Wolof (Senegalese) word "hipi" meaning "to open one's eyes" or "be aware", and was introduced into English through slavery, as "hipster" slaves developed their own language in order to communicate behind the backs of their masters. Current hatred of "hipsters" is rooted in a desire for control and conformity: slavery to a boring middle-class consumerist existence.
Boring Middle Class Twat 1: "Wanna do something interesting tonight?"
Boring Middle Class Twat 2: "Let's go to the mall."
Boring Middle Class Twat 1: "Yes, that sounds interesting."

They wear old worn italian cycling shoes, vans with holes, and/or toms often wear nazi or WW2 jackets, and bright neon "Fay Banz" (fake ray bans). They have trendy facial hair, and long and short section in their hair that seem out of place. Often shop at urban outfitters and american apparel. Essential accesories include: 1st generation ipod (because its bulky and works better and is trendier supposedly, which is filled with indie rock, alternative, or strange french pop), Vintage cigarete case filled with camel or parliament grits, strange leather bracelets, keys on belt, Vintage messenger or courier bag, sidekick 2. Use words like janky, sketchy, and epic fail. have a vintage italian steel track bike thats never been on the track and most likely has bright colors and 1 or 2 aerospokes.

Hipster 2: solid we can go with our fix krew and have a ride there.

fist magnet . a person of low character that stands for nothing.the most unimportant counter culture cliche to exist in one hundred years. gaunt overly obsessed with creating the illusion of social awareness while in actuality concerned with nothing. usually can be seen in the parts of town where pseudo artists congregate. watch for veganism and che tshirts. also a large concentration of poorly constructed one speed bikes being ridden by people with no cadence skills. under nourished and pale hard to differentiate the difference between the females and males of this subculture.
usually one knows they are in the presence of a hipster when they are around someone using really large words but unable to say anything at all. bad odors due to the fashion statement being made by not bathing are also present. horrific music being played and the allusion to the fact you are not smart enough to get it. also watch for tshirts being worn of defunct bands like joy division. worship of ian curtis and nico also a common factor. over use of the word amazing.

A shallow subculture of teens and young adults that shows how the worst of human tendencies to seek some kind of dominance over one another even stoops down to the most mundane subjects like tastes in music and fashion.
You know you're a hipster when you describe in the most pretentious way possible why your taste in edgy/vintage clothing and obscure music makes you a better person than everyone else while projecting your insecurities onto people who successfully fit into the realms of society while you failed miserably at doing so.
