Hipsters are what happened to the emo people when they realized they weren't being "individuals" but instead just joining the latest faggy trend. These refugees from society sought asylum by keeping their tight pants, but instead of wearing copious amounts of black, red, or white make up decided to give up basic hygiene to further distance themselves from the "pack." These smelly, privaledged white children clad in grubby hats, ill fitting clothes, and womens shoes grabbed their messanger bags and hopped onto the most inconvenient form of a bicycle (fixed gear) to cause terror on the nations roadways and slowly, but surely, pollute every corner of America with their hipster scum. But all is not lost, inevitably the hipsters will realize they have been labeled "hipsters" and go into a period of dormancy until the next fad surfaces.

Hey look at that fag* riding a fixed gear, pull out in front of him and he wont be able to stop.

A pointless generalization to describe people who are more fashion-conscious and more knowledgeable about decent, independent music than you.
Examples are too mainstream. Afterall, im a hipster. Yet the irony is that I posted an example. How ironic.

See examples.

1 ) the hipster does the beneficial thing but is too lazy to fight for other people to do the same )
2 ) the hipster does the beneficial action but gets off at the fact that he is the unique person in a world of people who do the negative action)
3) possibly a person who finds the definition of words on urbandictionary.com to be pure ART due to their crude/funny/common-man nature. )
4 )possibly a person who types up ambiguous definitions of the term hipster )
5 ) possibly a person who enjoys blogging in lower case letters only due to their uniqueness and the love of the art of being unique
6 ) possibly a person who uses a modern day ( 2011 ) outlet such as urbandictionary.com to admit that they are a hipster ( despite the fact that admitting you are a hipster is the biggest stigma of hipster culture ).
7 ) A person who would type such a definition a feel as though they have betrayed the "Underground Sophisticated Artists God of the Universe" ( the god being a metaphor for the character itself )
8 ) One who types urbandictionary.com defintions of the term "hipster" while high on marijuana and while drunk off of two beers
9 ) People who know a lot and because of this act differently and SOMETIMES negatively to people who don't know the generally fun fact information they know.
10 ) They are not all mean. Some really are smart people who are willing to be nice to people because they realize that people will understand their character in a more
positive light with more respect if they act nice.
11 ) People who type urbandictionary.com definitions of the term hipster in a positive way to show people that not all young art students who brag a lot about having cool artsy scene experiences and also have artistic glory as well as knowing a library of fun facts are mean or pretentious people. People who write because their is a lacking in the modern world of the real unknown humble and starving artists not getting love because too many damn negative hipsters are competing in the world against positive hipsters.

Some hipsters believe there are positive and negative hipsters. Positive hipsters don't slander the name of hipsters causing society to view them as a lazy group of people.

Maybe people who agree with this AREN'T HIPSTERS at all?! What if we "Positive Nice Hipsters" are something entirely different? What if some of us are truly ARTIST OF BEING HUMBLE and HUMBLE ARTISTS. We will never know because society deams those who except that they belong to those terms are automatically deamed hipsters due to an automatic assumption that the individual probably ISN'T that great of an artist or genius. Someone who understands the beauty of this definition being an example in a way of the true lows a person can go to in terms of being a "nerdy internet blogger or bitcher" while also being an auto journal.

Dorian Sanders. He wears scarves, big framed glasses, and walks around with 8 cameras around his neck, snapping pictures every emotional second he gets. He thinks triangles are the epitome of life, they're so deep, yet so shallow...~
Dorian Sanders is a hipster.

Describes lifestyle/fashion sensibilities of a subset of American youth—generally urban. Although sometimes ascribed a unique philosophical/aesthetic orientation (or novel lack thereof) hipsterism generally displays characteristics typical of other historical youth cultures. (See: teeny-bopper, hippy, punk, grunge, mod, rocker, goth, and other youth cultures typified by unconventional dress, specific music taste, chronic narcissism, dissociation, delusion, pseudo/anti-intellectualism, and necessarily selective and improbable world-views.) Such youth cultures generally awake—as if from a strange dream—sometime in their mid-thirties, baffled by their own behavior and the origins of several really really poorly done tattoos.
Man, where have you been? There's nothing Ukrainian about Ukrainian Village anymore--its full of hipsters.

Look at this fucking hipster.
