When one labels another with the brand hipster do they feel empowered?
I’ve just noticed it seems to be used as a generalization of people who are not mainstream enough to “fit in” so they get tagged.
I’m wondering why just because someone is involved in the arts, local music or just anything that seems, “counter-culture” they get tagged with “hipster” these days.
My personal opinion is that it’s a pathetic attempt to put a certain group in the back seat in society. Kind of like high school when the popular people would throw, the “rockers” or “goths” or “nerds” in the back seat of high school society.
Any who, do you catch my drift? Do you personally categorize anyone who is into music, fashion, art, literature as “hipster” or just people you might feel are trying to be different on purpose. If you feel they are trying to be different on purpose, what do you think is so wrong about that?
I have a buddy who calls people in downtown hipster all the time and pokes fun at their physical features and their accessories etc. Thing is, he has does almost everything that they do. I think this tag and generalization has gone too far into his head because of how it’s made fun of yet he’s involved in the sort of “counter-culture” that “general people” (whatever that is) call hipsters.
