Society went through a phase where so many people wanted to blend in and they did to conform to accepted ways. Some people still do. Then everyone started this motivational cliched quote rubbish telling everyone to be unique and stand out and be different. So loads of people went to the opposite end of the spectrum and started dressing and acting in absurd ways to be different and come across as unique with their own style.
Why not just act like yourself without trying to blend in or stand out? Too many people trying too hard.
I don't even know what a hipster is. Once someone called me a hipster for liking Jeff Buckley, they essentially said that anyone that likes Jeff Buckley can't possibly like him for any sincere reason. People always seem to use that word when someone likes something that they do not, it's an inferiority complex, people trying to justify their own opinion by stamping down on someone else that doesn't act like them.
I get called a Hipster because I wear glasses, love Joy Division and I usually wear my Smiths or other 80s bands tops.
I wouldn't say I am a Hipster. To me a hipster is someone who goes out of their way to like things that no one has ever heard of, wears those massive thick rimmed glasses,only eat organic products, are vegetarians, studies something art related and of course, they have every Apple product on the market!
Most I've seen online act depressed, and cut for attention. I don't understand.
Plus, the actions of some others are just outrageous, wearing pants the other way round? That's not even unique, it's stupidity.
