"Hipster doesn't actually mean anything anymore. People think it does but it doesn't. It might have meant something at one point but now people use the word hipster to describe just about anyone who doesn't dress like a Romney.…"

"Ah! I see! You're upset that people are paying too much for brand names that are essentially over-priced cheap beer. We have that same phenomenon in Canada, too. People pay an arm and a leg for what the industry calls "domestic…"

"Hipsters exist.  They just don't typically self-identify as "hipsters" ... because, to most, its an insult.  Kinda like how douchebags -- a group that intersects heavily with hipsters -- rarely refer to themselves as…"
