Do the current bearded Charlie Brown with a trucker hat in a cheap t-shirt, metrosexual guys qualify as an American social movement?  

I see them around with their female counterparts (Same as above but with big plastic glasses added) from time to time. They
seem to have nothing to say about anything. No POV. They just act weak (Offer to shake hands with one and watch 'em cringe.)
and wear thrift store clothes. That's it. Like adult sized children.


Is this the best Generation Y has to offer us?

Masculinity is seen as a negative.

Personal Responsibility is seen as a negative.

Part of being masculine is taking responsibility.

Hipster (men) eschew all the trappings of masculinity and behave like over-grown children without responsibilities.

It is the perfect storm of the leftist embodiment of males.

Just because I'm 30, rock a beard and wear nerd t-shirts people think I am one until they realize I'm not tatted up, wearing jeans that compress my junk or drinking PBR.

Seriously.  I know one 20-something who needs his mother to take him clothes shopping.  My father would have thrown my ass out the front door if I even asked either one of my parents to go just for an opinion.  

This kid can't do anything for himself, shuffles his feet, whines, and despite making more money than her, never seems to pay for his own clothes.  Oh, which she washes for him.

Wow.

Nah, the best Gen Y has to offer is either wearing a military uniform, doing something else that benefits everyone overall or at is productive in society in some way.

Damn I saw one this past weekend (NOVA tourist I guess) digging through clothes at the flea market that had the muscle-tone of a egg noodle. The woman (nice looker) with him was more fit. What a waste.

The woman was probably early to mid-twenties.  Without a doubt, she will start questioning her choice the first time any manual labor comes up, like changing a light bulb or putting air in a car tire.

Hipster men are a toy for women, until the women realize they need a MAN, not a girlfriend.

I don't know how you can think hipsters are more effeminate than goths.  

It's really just the same old shit slightly re-hashed into a "new style."  I'm in my mid-thirties, so I don't really "get it," but I don't think it's the end of the world either.

I don't know....There are a lot of pasty-faced condo dwellers in NOVA that have everything done for them.

I think they believe it's cool not to be handy much less self-sufficient as most work for the .gov and can afford someone else to do the heavy lifting.

Ever see a hipster that owns a real house?

It is funny that you say that.  Through my girlfriend, I met a hipster couple that had just bought a house and were woefully unprepared for "reality".  Shit that I learned as a little boy about house maintenance, etc., was a whole new world opening up to them.  They WANTED to learn, which was great, but I blame their parents for doing NOTHING to prepare them on how to LIVE.  They were not poor, went to very good schools, were very smart... just not ready for "life".


Reminded me of this:

I growled at a hipster once.

He decided to complain about me having a meat at the self check out isle loud enough for me to hear.  My better half was mad but I was content.  Hipster boy went to the other side of the checkout area.  Good day.

I humiliated a metrosexual once and all the hipster chicks got upset.

If you get a chance , cram one of their legs in a grease gun , works great on tie-rods and u-joints .

Once you poke their eyes out , you get a much better grip on those little chucklehead-noggins , and you can usually chuck it about 60-80 yards , with ease .

Was in Chicago over the fourth of July, they were everywhere.  But they take offense to actually being referred to as hipsters, they prefer to think of themselves as trendy or some shit.  Not sure if this has been posted here or not but it was in the other hipster thread:

The Life Organic

On a side note, did you know that the city of Chicago hates trucks?  I got a fucking ticket for parking my F-150 on a residential street, the citation on the ticket said something like "truck/bus/rv/taxi on residential street."  While there was a fucking hummer H3 across the street with no ticket.  You can keep your smart cars, zip cars, hipsters, and unfair parking practices, Chicago.

Oh they do have the cash. The scene seems to like bicycles. Bright colored bikes. But wait. Look on Craigs. They build carbon framed, HED3 wheeled, "fixie" bikes that cost thousands, just to ride around the neighborhood. They're in such poor shape that's about all they can do, plus the idiots follow the fixed gear fad so they have only one gear and no brakes. Ouch! That gets old fast. They don't know it but they built a racing "track bike". Velodrome tracks are flat. The real world isn't. So on to Craigs it goes.

My favorite hipster sighting was two of them asking the doorman at Ruth's Chris where they could get some Mediterranean vegan cuisine. The doorman looked at them like they were both retarded, pointed to the sign and asked if they knew what Ruth's Chris was. Everyone waiting for the valet burst out laughing as the woman stormed off, dragging her girl-pants-wearing boyfriend by the wrist.
