Rejects from the Junior Libertarian Squad

Hi... I just joined this evening because especially with the recession/depression/WHATEVER this fucked up economy is, I need some classism therapy. It all started when I was born to a Libertarian father...

No, we won't go into that.

I have no particular links to share right away but can I please get a show of hands for who wants to punch hipster chic in the goddamn face? I'm at a liberal arts college in NY where 75% of the population appears to be from Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and every last one of them seems to think it's the pinnacle of fashion sense and intellectual culture to "ironically" dress like they're poor. Trucker hat, shitty beer... look, you probably know the drill. I'm just so fucking sick of it. I'm not about to say that they're dressing and behaving "trashy" because that would be pretty classist in and of itself, but it's the lame, lame joke of it that winds me up. Oh wow, your Facebook interests include "thrift stores!" Yeah, it's not like some people actually go there because they don't have a choice. Good job.

San Francisco has more than a bit of that pretentious faux-poor streak. Pabst is the hot new beer here... I used to drink that back in the day because it was decent and affordable. And the imitation 80's trash fashion, bad haircuts, jacked up rent, gentrification. People think they are are soooo bohemian because they are rich white kids moving to working class and ethnic neighborhoods. Gah, die hipster, die!
