A typical 20-30 year old douche bag that believes they're better than everyone else because of their misguided and unrealistic ideals. They believe in nonconformity, listen to terrible indie music, wear clothes from the Salvation Army, are usually vegetarian and do tons of recreational drugs. Their extremely liberal stance in politics makes them incapable of accepting reality for what it is, and they’ll actually defend drug abuse, claiming it’s healthy. Hipsters specialize in mooching off society, believing in utilitarianism and socialism, and that everyone should be equal and that they have a right to have everything handed to them. It is because of this that most of them are jobless, having no incentive to work for or earn anything that isn't free (See: Occupy Wall Street).

You can recognize a hipster for their odd piercings, odd colored hair, tight jeans, donated clothing and pothead-like voice. They can usually be found at raves or indie rock concerts, and occasionally at house parties rolling up their own cigarettes and / or holding a Pabst Blue Ribbon. You may also recognize their incredible ability to reject reality and their intense effort to do absolutely nothing. This means staying up til odd hours of the morning, and sleeping all day, only to wake up, smoke a cigarette, then smoke 2 other drugs just in time for another cigarette. They usually proceed to ask to borrow some money, being they just spent it all on smoking, instead of necessities like food.
Normal Human: Hey Storm, what'd you end up doing last night? I went out to a house party and had a fuckin blast haha.

Hipster (Storm): uhhhh, oh yeah haha. I went out to a foam party and dropped 90 bucks on shrooms man. It was unreal man heheh. I was trippin balls and danced my ass off for hours then hooked up with this chick with blue hair and a shaved head.

Normal Human: Oh. Sounds... Sounds fun man..

------------------------------------------------------------

Normal Human: Say, that cough sounds pretty nasty. You aren't sick are you?

Hipster: Nahhhh man, i don't know, it just came outta no where man. I've had it for a while now.

Normal Human: It couldn't be from stupid amount of smokin--

Hipster: Hah what?

Normal Human: Oh..

The modern hipster is a creature that generally lacks a sense of belonging in mainstream society due to its aggressive hatred of all things it sees as belonging or relating to the idea of "father". The hipster can be identified by a few trademark signs.

It wears an atrocious array of clothing that is meant to immediately draw attention to the wearer. This is to help other creatures of the same species identify each other and also to fill the hipster's deep-seated need for the attention they feel was denied them by parents who "just don't get them". Perhaps the most iconic piece of the hipster outfit is the so-called "skinny" jeans, though it is rare to see a hipster who fits the aforementioned description. A further visual trait of the hipster is its hairstyle. The hipster considers its hair to be "edgy" and avant-garde when in reality, it is an attention-seeking ploy and a desperate appeal to humans to give it the attention its father never would.

It is not uncommon for the hipster to hold a degree from an educational institution, but the majority of hipsters are merely students with no sort of financial burdens. The degree, however, is usually is Sociology or another discipline of equal worthlessness and is only obtained as a way for the hipster to feel validation for its slew of unfounded political opinions. The average hipster also has a hefty knowledge of the obscure, unpopular music that it listens to to make itself feel unique and important.
Where can I find a hipster if I wanted to study one?

You can usually find them in their natural habitats: either pretending to find symbolism and deep meaning in manga books at Barnes and Noble, or pretending to enjoy coffee at a Starbucks.

People who are disapointed that you don't know the band they like, wear suspenders, make ironic jokes, wear lots of hats (especially toques), read lots of books, enjoy wiriting, enjoy mixtapes, dislike most of the mainstream, or have names like Braxton would be considered hipster.
Also hipsters are often those who protest being called a hipster. It would be too mainstream for them.
your friend: "Hey, that new kid's name is Braxton."

you: "Whoa, why is he wearing suspenders?"

your friend: "I don't know, but he just asked about some band called the Hundreds. What a hipster!"

Braxton: "I'm not a hipster!!!"

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.

the true meaning of what it is to be a fag who craves attention. These scum sit around, criticizing anyone and everyone who isn't in their circle at starbucks with a laptop sucking dick. They tend to be found in groups and will often look at you in disgust if you so much as make eye contact with them, this will be preceded by whispers, probably whispers of their homosexual tendencies. Most of them suck at playing one particular instrument and form together to make an indie band. Hipsters always love to be out of the main stream, when in fact, they are second in main stream culture, next to the swag fags.
Tage: "I wouldn't even consider us being hipster, we aren't even mainstream".
Nigel: "I just hate the cooperate machine, I won't ever conform".
Tage: "Let's go to starbucks and look at memes."

Hipsters are people that try too hard to be different (and genuinely do think that they're being different), by rejecting anything they deem to be too popular.
Ironically, so many other people also try too hard to be different that they all wind up being the exact same, so hipsters arent actually different at all, theyre just people that are snobbier and more annoying about their taste in "alternative" things, which are all popular now thanks to the other hipsters.
Hipsters pride themselves on liking things that no one else likes, and normally only really like them because they think no one else likes them and that theyre being unique. This is being delusional because all the other hipsters also like the same things.
Hipster: "I love Mumford and Sons because they're so different to popular music nowadays."
A Million Other Hipsters: "I love Mumford and Sons because they're so different to popular music nowadays."
Mumford and Sons consequently becom a popular band because of their large hipster following of people who think they're being different for listening to them.

(Note: this isn't a hate on Mumford and sons, it's just an example!)

Snobby group of gross men and women who think its cool to read and wear old shit. Often listen no indie music so they can seem less mainstream and therefore more hipster to other hipsters. Mainstream ideas and products are shunned by hipsters, iphones being an exception. They show great disdain for anyone who is "mainstream" which really means anyone who doesnt like their crappy music or their shabby looking clothes and bad hair. Any person with half a brain will realize that the only thing seperating a hipster from hobo is an iPhone and taste for bad music.
Normal guy: dude, why do they let that smelly hobo in the coffee shop?
Normal guy 2: idk... Wait! Check the iPhone! Totally a hipster! .. Gross
Normal guy: Even worse! Why would they let a hipster in here! At least hobos realize it's not cool to look the way they do!
