Remember about 4 or 5 years ago when being an "Emo" kid was a big stigma, and the whole scene seemed to be the punchline of every trend or music joke?

I can't help but feel that "Hipster" has become that level. It has a negative connotation, and it seems like EVERYONE can be called a Hipster for some reason or another. There are the stereotypes, sure, but I'm sure just about anyone could find a reason for anyone else to be called a Hipster.

What do you think? Is the term becoming too broad and empty?

Even if this is a joke answer, that's kinda the point.

I think that's true. I don't see what the big deal is. I really like the hipster style (clothing, accessories, etc), I like indie music (sometimes even "underground" bands), and I have dark rimmed glasses. I don't consider myself a hipster (at least the stereotypical pretentious version). People are just looking to label others. Oh well. Live your own life.

Yes, there's always one big scene which becomes popular then becomes laughed at until replaced by the next scene, etc.

a stereotypical hipster disconnects themselves from the norm by doing the opposite of the norm.

a stereotypical emo is just emotional all the time, wears dark clothing and listens to 'emo' music.

Hipsters are definitely the new emo's. It's the new trend, give it another 4 or 5 years and we'll be saying "remember those hipsters?". The thing I absolutely love about hipster being a trend is that it's popularity is the antithesis of what it's meant to be haha.

Only if you have a negative perception of it.

I take pride in my hipster-dom. Yeah, I cuff my jeans and buy vinyl records. Yeah, my jeans and music are better than yours. What of it?

Agreed. No need to be ashamed of our artistic superiority.

A hipster is just an emo kid that grew a beard, messed his hair up and got rid of the band shirt for a lumberjack shirt.

Zatch, you are indeed a good man.

Also, the hipster look (or what I think it is) looks better than the emo look.
