How do you define something that is, by definition, always changing? Hipsters are nothing new, of course. Eve was made from Adams’s rib (close to his hip), and refused to accept the status quo. Abraham Lincoln was into abolition before it was cool (“Racism is so 1850s. I’m into equal rights. But you probably haven’t heard of it.”). And, of course, old people are always having hip replacements; I mean, how cutting edge can you be? The trick is to stay of ahead of the curve.
Hipsters, circa 1958:
Get the app before it comes out.
Be a princess, and then refuse to be what a “princess” is “supposed to be.”
Expect resistance from people who just don’t get it.
