Do you like hipsters?

I saw on Slate that the latest hipster trend is decorating their hipster beards:







I'm pretty sure that I will never have a meaningful conversation with someone who decorates their beard like a Christmas tree.

I know a guy who put flowers in his hipster beard.
Thus, I have not spoken to him in months.

They don't bother me usually since they don't usually take shit overly seriously, alas, I'm fat, have a job, and can't grow a beard so I hate them for other reasons.

As long as they don't bother me, I don't bother them....so I can co-exist with them peacefully.

Re: Do you like hipsters?

If they feel they're better than another human being, then I despise them.
Otherwise I'm cool with them.

This is stupid. It's not a trend, someone took some pictures and got it shared on Facebook. No one is doing this.

Aren't hipsters are all about conforming? Once one hipster does this, all the hipsters will be doing this.

Makes sense, since the latest trend now is called 'Lumbersexual'

Re: Do you like hipsters?

Was it really necessary to repost those stupid oversized pictures? When you respond to a thread, we know you're referring to the OP.

I'm sure there are Christmas parties for coffee shop employees where some doofus will hang an ornament in his beard, but you're not going to be seeing people walking around Brooklyn, searching for cheap PBR looking like this.

I'm sorry that you decided to post a thread about something all of our aunts are posting on Facebook though.

BAM! Hipster burn!

Meh, even if it was a "thing", it kinda just falls in with the body piercings and tattoos type of stuff.

Don't have strong feelings about them one way or the other. It's never really been a "thing" here.

And I like PBR, so no complaints there.

I used to like hipsters, but that was before they became popular. Now I like a group of people you never heard of.

Re: Do you like hipsters?

So long as people are decent to one another I really don't care. It's been a huge thing here in Minneapolis for quite some time. The fact that I live in the city proper and frequent local draft houses and vinyl shops, I probably encounter hipsters more than non-hipsters in my normal routine.

It hasn't been updated in a while, but I used to get a chuckle out of this blog: www.hipstersinworkboots.com

I don't really go out of my way to talk to guys. Hipster chicks on the other hand put out, a lot.

Not too much, no. Unless they're girls who don't like Obama... Pretty rare, I suspect.

I don't really have much of an opinion on hipsters anymore, as by this time being one is its own punishment.

Slate readers, though...

I'm curious, is "hipster" a term people self-identify with? I've only ever heard it used as a pejorative.

Re: Do you like hipsters?

If I had to choose between living among hipsters or living among Islamic State militants I'd choose the Islamic State. At least they don't wear those stupid skinny jeans.
