Me and my husband used to tease each other for being "hipsters" then after a while realized, that we kind of are.  But then again, what does that even mean?  To me there are two different types, which kind of works with any stereotype... there are the kinds that are just following a trend, basically pretending to be a certain way (like Avril Lavigne being "punk").  Then there are people that actually like certain music, way of dressing, whatever... that just happens to be "hipster" right now.  If that's the case, then I fit the stereotype:  lots of tattoos, artistic, a hippie/bohemian style of dressing, vegetarian/vegan, loves oldies, etc...  But that's just me!  I'm not following anything, never have.  I just like what I like, whether it's popular or not.  I bet there are lots of people like me that get stereotyped, and are thinking the same thing!  So I try not to bug them now.  

I've known people that specifically won't like something because it's popular, which I think is silly.  That shouldn't stop you from liking something.  Sometimes, something you've liked for a long time becomes popular.  Example:  I LOVED overalls when I was a kid.  I wore them a lot through 7th, 8th, and 9th grade.  In 10th grade, they became popular all of a sudden ('98/'99) and everybody was wearing them.  It wasn't the fact that they became popular that bothered me, because it just made them more accessible.  The reason it pissed me off is because all of the asshole kids that made fun of me for wearing them for three years, were now wearing them.  Hypocrites.  Such a pet peeve.  Don't make fun of something that's unpopular, then go and wear it when it becomes popular. ahdn_paul_01

Back in 1968, my older sister was 17 and living in Haight-Ashbury (a district of San Francisco), probably the epicenter of the entire Counter Culture -- and she had ended up there after having hitchhiked up the Pacific coast of Mexico with her hippie boyfriend she married at age 16! (Her favorite Beatle was John.)
