So now you know.
And all people with cowboy hats and sunglasses look the same.
Or it could just be television.
Nothing like a bit of over-analysis to waste the day....
The whole hipster drivel is Pabst tense
When I graduated from high school in 1975, me, my girlfriend and everyone else we knew had long hair, parted down the middle.
Mine reached the middle of my back, my girlfriend had a Crystal Gayle-type mane.
We all used the same hair care products, wore blue jeans (bell bottoms or flares), tank tops (wife beaters), sandals, and were not stylish or fashionable.
From the back, it was sometimes difficult to ascertain/determine our gender.
I proudly and happily flew the flag of my tribe.
Young people now don’t look, act, or think like we did.
It’s their world now, I (truly) wish them luck navigating their lives.
Things gotta change.
I’ve truly enjoyed my time on this beautiful orb.
"Hipsters are an easy target for a bit of fun,"
Isn't it considered "hip" to make fun of "hipsters"? It certainly is for me!
My generation grew our hair out long to deliberately identify ourselves with a "different" culture holding views on society and politics opposed to our parents......but when we decided to "sell out", (or as I prefer to call it "buy in") it was easy to cut our hair or put the bellbottoms in the closet. Things like tattoos are less easily disposed of.
I want to be different just like everybody else!
My favorite way to reject the mainstream is to dress pretty square and trick normies into talking with me.
Some MIT thesis crap to start the day with.
This thread reminds me. I have to go to the Salvation Army store and find more ironic clothes.
Even counter-culturalists wanna fit in.
Making a statement via your fashion choices is an affectation rather than individualism. After all, without the right look, no-one will get that you're not mainstream.
I just say "NO"
Irony isn't always ironic. Sometimes it's just a stupid opinion in disguise.
I grew my hair long to fit in with all the other kids who had long hair.
This article tells me I must work harder to look different. I will now only wear suits of armor, which I have spray painted in bright, metallic colors.
I look just like everyone else who buys all their shirts from the Walmart closeout racks.
Same as it ever was.......
Once in a while you bump into someone that DOES look different from their peers.
I looked at a high school yearbook from 1976, and the similarity of hairstyles and clothing was remarkable, for both boys and girls. My students today are incredibly varied in their hair styles and clothing. It seems that they are all doing a decent job of finding their own expressions of themselves, rather than trying hard to look like whatever group they belong to.
