It is totally the new “poser”, and does need a moratorium.
Tribal identities will endure and change. The hipster idea exists in britain but it’s not really got a label yet. Vintage, maybe. But we have chavs. It’s nothing to be proud of.
I realised quite young that tribal adornings and groups were full of shit when the hip hop kids would naively mock the rock kids by wrongly generalising about how lame their music was ‘all about slitting wrists’ and then the rock kids would be just as naïve about hip hop being entirely about bitches money drugs and gunz.
As you are responsible for your style, behavior, and associations, being criticized for them is nothing whatsoever like being criticized for your ethnicity, your sexual orientation, or your “defining physical characteristics.”
That was at least triple-meta by the end there. And I got over “hipster” before it was cool.
Calm down Freddie. Such was never stated or implied.
