I Am An Unwilling Hipster

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 110 People

    I Just Accept It

    I don't really care about hipsters or any other kind of sociocultural labels but apparently I'm a hipster. I guess because I'm black but I don't act ghetto or because I'm a girl and I love to skateboard. Maybe because I have good taste in music. I dunno but that's how my friends...

    My Friends Aren't Hipsters

    so it really sucks sometimes. ever since Nirvana in middle school, i was compelled to check out non-mainstream stuff. it just spiraled from there. i started to check out underground bands, and the stuff on the radio seemed less appealing. i became interested in making rock music...

    I'm not really a hipster.

    . I just enjoy music that isn't mainstream. I think it's awesome to listen to music that no one has heard of. I like searching for new music.. It's like a secret a select few get to hear first. Chances are anything that has become mainstream I've already been listening to for...

    Oh Wow.

    Every. Single. Day.

    Hello friends, my name is Savannah, but you may call me Static. I would like to discuss something that happens to me ALL the time. I am indeed, an unwilling hipster. I have long hair and apparently I wear hipstery clothes. All of my friends are constantly saying, "Well, don't you...

    My Bakery Became Hipster Central

    I was raised alternatively. Though my mother came from a Catholic family, she was never particularly religious, and my father was raised secular humanist, so they went with the secular humanist route in raising us. My father was also raised vegetarian, so we were raised...

    I just have some of the 'hipster' traits.

    But I can live with them.

    One Day I Was Suddenly A Hipster

    I had always disassociated myself with the term "hipster" because of the negative connotation surrounding it. To me the hipsters were always the people wearing horn-rimmed glasses, fedoras, an ascot or winter scarf, and would always make obscure references to obscure TV shows and...

    Just How I Was Raised

    While I was growing up we didn't have much and shopped only at bargain-buys and garage sales for clothes as well as furniture, so it wouldn't be out of the ordinary to see a flared collar here and shag carpet there. Half the stuff in our house now is taken right off the...

    I wear a colorful hat

    and I listen to underground music so then people started calling me a hipster when I had no idea what the hell that was. Looked it up and BAM. Like the birth of Jesus.

    Kinda Annoyed By This

    I get that irony is the cornerstone of being a hipster. As a matter of fact, I jokingly write a column under the moniker "The Reluctant Hipster." But the thing that's always irritated me is how far everyone goes to disassociate themselves with the term "hipster." Why is it such...

    I've always picked these black rimmed glasses,

    I think since my second pair and I've had glasses since I was 8. I had no idea it was a hipster thing and had no idea what that even was when I was asked if I was one due to my glasses. I just deal.

    I'm Afraid So

    I've been called a hipster because I'm a vegetarian, a lesbian, I shop at thrift shops, I have an ecclectic style of dress, and I listen to many many Indie bands. lol I don't consider myself a hipster since I have dressed this way/acted this way/listened to this music/been a...

    How I Realized I'm a Hipster

    I was waiting at the bus stop, people-watching, and I saw a girl walk by me. In my head I said, "man, she is SUCH a hipster, with her crazy patterened coat and her headband and giant sunglasses, her iPod and her cigarette..." And then I realized that that is exactly...

    I Don't Know Why It's Such A Huge Deal, But...

    I never thought of myself as a hipster... frankly, because I dislike mainstream labels, which is more evidence that I am a hipster. But the ancient music I listen to, the indie films and bands, my bias against anything mainstream, my love and appreciation for all things...

    Don't Mind.

    I don't really mind being a "hipster" anymore, what really bothers me is the fact that everyone thinks it's such a bad thing. Yes, I know there are douche bag hipsters, but there are douche bags within every label of society. Why are hipsters suddenly the worst types of people? I...

    Ugh! I hate this soooo much. I can't tell you how many times I've had someone call me a hipster. Usually after I answer a question about what kind of music I listen to. Someone will ask me what bands I listen to and I'll name off a few. The person then responds with "I've never...
