Recently I’ve been throwing around the term “hipster” with a total disregard to its actual meaning.  Is it true that my lens-less 3d glasses, strictly thrift store apparel, and love of “indie” music do not a hipster make?  According to urban dictionary,

Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20’s and 30’s that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter.  Hipsters reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans, old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses. …  and a lot more bullshit about how ironically non-hipsters are actually following in the footsteps of hipsters (e.g. distressed jeans, now popular indie bands, etc).

Moral:  being a hipster has a lot more to do with not caring what anyone thinks about you, dressing ridiculously for sport, and being attracted to the runner/frisbee player build.

so what am I?

In a recent interview, Sterling Montgomery coined the term, brohemian (brahemian, the female version), to encapsulate the hipster’s close relative,

The modern brohemian, commonly confused as a hipster based solely on outward appearance is a 20 something who seems to care little about the opinions of others.  He makes a sport of dressing ridiculously (offensive at times), but is often considered trendy, usually by friends who are even less fashion aware.  The brohemian style is outrageously eclectic, taking a piece from many other genres and combining them all in the most ridiculous amalgamation possible.  Fake mustaches, pipes, knock-off wayfarers, lens-less 3D sunglasses, pocket watches, and fake jewelry are common accessories for both the bro and brahemian.  The majority of the wardrobe is thrift-store purchased and worn by guy or girl interchangeably.  Many bro/brahemians are current or previous ultimate frisbee players, because the spirit of the non-varsity sport promotes the brohemian style.  Where hipsters are strictly independent, self-thinkers, refusing to enjoy anything deemed “popular” by society, brohemians do not limit themselves in this way.  Their interests are as eclectic as their style, and they cannot be defined by a specific genre of music, literature (or even ability to read), or political party.

It’s a revolution.  Get on it.  Anyways, I’m way too fat to be a real hipster.

Peace out bishes,
