A derogatory term used to describe free-thinkers and people that appreciate creativity. Because in most modern societies it is often looked down upon for an individual to appreciate creativity and to be able to think for themselves it has become somewhat rare to find people that do so. Many half-wits or people who abstain from thinking for themselves (the majority of people) have come up with a derogatory term (hipster) to describle all people that do such things. However, the term "hipster" fails at defining these people because it refers to a specific style of dress and a specific type of independent music (Rock) while people who appreciate creativity and think for themselves don't all have the same style of dress. They could wear anything and listen to a wide variety of independent music (not just independent rock as the stereotype suggests). One of the most obvious reasons why these people would prefer not to be labeled as "hipsters" and view the term as derogatory is that the term "hipster" implies that they are trying to conform to a specific subculture while anybody who appreciates creativity and can think for themselves would not conform to anything because doing so would not be being creative or thinking for themselves at all.
Tool - "Hey, can I ask you a quick question?"

"Hipster" - "I guess. What's up?"

Tool - "Hey, why don't you dress like everybody else and listen to bands that are on the radio?

"Hipster" - "Oh, that's because I don't have to dress the way that other people dress, and because I don't like the music on the radio.

Tool - "But, why don't you like the music on the radio? If it's on the radio, then doesn't that mean it's good?"

"Hipster" - "Well, the music that you hear on the radio is made specifically to appeal to ignorant, culturally deprived people like yourself that don't really care about the artistic and creative value of music and prefer to listen to music that sounds just like every other singer on the radio and sings about the same cheesy, shallow, unimportant, generic topics that have been used in thousands of other songs and don't really mean anything."

Tool - "Oh..."

Typical non-conformist. They forget the ability to just enjoy music simply because it's good and opt instead to argue about it. They feel they are entitled and waste thousands of dollars just to look like a homeless person. They don wingfarers, mustaches, kids' t-shirts, etc etc because it's "ironic" despite their complete lack of understanding of humor or irony. They rebel without understanding their cause. They only appreciate foreign films without realizing that they are "mainstream" in a different culture. They claim and are proud of being into things before everyone else liked them. When a musicians dies, they are the first ones to claim that they loved their music way before they died. They feel that the amount of vintage clothes that they own earn them some sort of credit as a human being. Really, they claim anything they wear that looks remotely old-fashioned is vintage. Like that counts for a lot. They are too busy rejecting social norms and having sore asses to appreciate anything that isn't "underground", still being hypocritical and shopping at mainstream stores. They believe they are smarter than everyone else without reasoning. They hate America and are unappreciative of their liberties. They've got 99 first world problems and starving to death isn't one.

In conclusion, hipsters are humorless, pretentious twats.
Normal person: Man, I love this new (insert formerly indie band here) track.

Hipster: Ew, you like them? I heard that they're on the radio now... Sell-outs.

Normal person: So you're sore that one of your precious indie bands has become successful, actually earning money and audience by pursuing their dream?

Hipster: ...

Normal person: Yeah, good reasoning.

What you get when middle-class pseudo-intellectuals try too hard to be unique. Scenekids picked up on this and a whole fashion trend exploded.

How to be a hipster:
- Love anything until it becomes mildly popular. Then hate the living hell out of it.
- Desperately make sure every one thinks that you don't care what people think.
- Shop for your clothes at thrift stores. Bonus points for plaid.
- Become an Apple Inc. iFag like everyone else (totally not conformist)
- Only listen/watch/read media no one else does.
- Don't shave.

Remember, nothing says unique or enlightened like trying too hard to be different instead of focusing on science and arts.
guy1: hey man, did you see all those hipsters?
guy2: yea man, I've never seen so many neckbeards pretending to have refined taste by paying for over-priced drinks in my life lol
guy1: what was up with all the iPhones?
guy2: well they support small business and non-conformity.
guy1: they do know there's an "Inc." at the end of Apple, right?

there is nothing wrong with being hipster, all long as u dont label yourself as it.

you believe in supporting little businesses by eating at local coffee shops instead of corrupted corporations like starbucks.

talk about humanity and art like music, films, lit, travel, history-instead of dumb trends and stupid pop culture references.--dont watch the oc..

shop at thrift stores meaning that they dont belive in paying $150 for a fricking pair of jeans when they can get them for $40.

are usually liberal so they believe in civil rights and dont support the "democratic" govt of the u. s. of fricking a-hole that has messed up almost every other coutnry, and cant get their shit together to actually help their own citizens.

whats wrong with being ''''hipster'''' if its just our new generation being more open-minded and not taking psuedo-coool societies crap?
hipster: i like indie movies from sundance and go to the Pannikin.

dumb other person: i watch one tree hill and drink 5 starbuck's a day...
