Hipster? You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Lol, what? That's even further off base. 2010 Hipster is a trust fund kid that shops at Urban Outfitters.
Maybe you don't live in a city or the PNW, but I guarantee you everyone in Portland that sees this guy doesn't think "look at this fucking hipster".
They are thinking "Ugh, another WTMH" or "Can't wait for the next encampment fire or shooting".
I walk past dozens of folks like this in Seattle on the daily. I'm not saying this shit isn't tragic, that our cops are inept when they want to be, and our social services fail addicts and the unhoused.
But hipster? Even if you were going on dress style, Cotopaxi is the brand atm. Dude's just wearing a stolen Arc'teryx hat. Dude's an obvious opiod addict with sneaky hands, not a hipster. Hipsters have safety nets.
And if you want to go way back, the origin of Hipster is just a regurgitation from the 30s of somebody who desperately wants to seem cool, so they appropriate every trend running.
Last I checked, burnout with swallow faces wasn't that hip.
WTMH = Where The Magic Happens?
It's an aesthetic. There's guys like this that look like this, there's KEXP bumpersticker Honda CRV dads that look sort of like this just with nicer shoes who work in like cyber security for Zillow. The only other aesthetic in the PNW is the most jug-hootingest 1488 blue tarps covering 20 junk cars in their yard redneck you've ever seen.

@ashtar Yeah, there's an aesthetic of not really caring about looks, but probably a tech dude. Nothing about this dude screams "I have a job, and I totally don't have a pneumatic cutter in my bag."
This dude doesn't tick any hipster vibes. He ticks the "oh yeah he's the guy honking fentanyl out of foil in the back of the bus" or "the reason my grocery store has had to relocate all medicine to the top floor so that security has more time to deal with them".
This is an aesthetic, but not a chosen one.
@Cracker If you mean I'm totally correct then yeah, I'm a hipster.
This dude looks like he has his own thread on StP.
What a perfect cap to the conversation. SolRo almost landed a good No true Scotsman joke, but then landed on his ass because apparently he doesn't know what a circlejerk is.
"Garsh darn hipsters, what with their propane tanks and constant window smashing, trashpiles visible from space. And they's always settin' them tent fires" - Nobody with a brain, ever.
Some of your are just hate-jerking the others but you are all jerking each other off in the end.
Hence a circlejerk.
But yea I’m sorry for not being as versed in circle jerks as some of you apparently are.
It's pretty common knowledge that a circle jerk is an information silo where everyone is reaffirming each other's opinions. Lol, how old and out of touch are you?
(lol means "laughing out loud")
You never see dudes like this walking down Bedford Ave in Williamsburg, ergo not a hipster.
