Die hipster die [Dec. 23rd, 2008|09:25 pm]
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.

UGH I hate hipsters in NYC...suddenly it's "cool" to live in Harlem or Williamsburg. You know how many Columbia freshman I hear claiming that Columbia is in Harlem because they think it's cool? IT'S NOT. It's all gravy until some real poor/brown people pop up. And I'm tired of the hipsters complaining about how "poor" they are because they live in a working-class neighborhood. I hear so many people representing "the Heights" (the mostly Dominican, working-class area I live in currently) around here. NO, you live in Columbia's graduate housing, which happens to be in the vicinity of Washington Heights. You didn't grow up here, you don't know these people's lives, so shut up and learn something from the community. Public health. Do it.
