This article adds an interesting perspective on the term: Punch Bowl Social - Are you a hipster? Find out for once and for all.
But I am curious, are there people out there who admit to being a hipster? Is it a bad thing, or just a social classification like any other (some jocks will admit they are jocks. Goths might admit to being goth. Some nerds love that that's their schtick, etc)? It seems that hipster is the one classification that the people who are so clearly fitting the description run like hell from.
It's also interesting in that I have seen some very... VERY hipster looking people complain about "those hipsters".
Just trying to figure this out.
