White people who want to be cool. I find it ironic.

@judasnixon: it is a ridiculously over used term. To me it used to be synonymous with scenester or poseur, but now it seems you can't prefer anything outside of the mainstream without being called one. Which is properly stupid, why can't you just like what you like? O_O

An overused term people throw onto anyone they don't like.

In my understanding hipsters are into obscure things not because they necessarily like them or enjoy them but because they are obscure. All homeless people are hipsters who think the whole living in a house bit is to mainstream.

Hipster is someone who was Hip before the rest population got hip. You listened to Electro before 2007. You watched Breaking Bad before 2010. You know, stuff like that.

Hipster is someone who was into something before it became trendy.

@wolfrazer: Because many people view it to be childish to want to express or share that you watched/listened/cared for something before it was popular.

@judasnixon: That's a pretty interesting observation. Because no one ever claims to be a hipster. It's always just a term someone uses to describe someone else.

My definition is a person who likes what's not mainstream or popular because they think they'll be cool if they're always part of the counter culture and will change what they like once that counter culture becomes mainstream or bitch how they are superior for liking <insert anything> back when it was part of said counter culture.

One of the few groups of people I'd actually be okay with all dying. I wouldn't be sad or happy, just okay.
