The term Hipster Douche has a somewhat contentious reputation at Pajiba. I, for one, enjoy the phrase as a means of categorizing a certain caste of hipsters or douches because that’s what I do. I separate people into groups that I only refer to with general and all-encompassing titles and then I insist that every single person I’ve relegated into said group is exactly the same because I’ve not accounted for personal variation or the fact that someone that looks the same as everyone else may, in fact, be different. It’s just my thing. There are some, however, that take offense to the phrase and rail constantly and loudly every time it’s used. I don’t take issue with that as here at Pajiba, they are free to do so if that is their wont. It is a bit of a tricky phrase though as it seems it can pertain to various douches and hipsters rather than just hipster douches. For the purposes of this piece, let’s just assume the term follows fairly closely to its definition found in the Urban Dictionary:
n. A uniquely annoying breed of hipster that is particularly skilled at ruining culture. Found in cool cities like Austin, the hipster douche takes self-irony and uselessness to a whole new level. Often seen wearing a flip brim cap and plaid, the hipster douche may pass judgment on (or ignore) anything under the sun with absolutely no knowledge of it. One may not, however, criticize him.
Now I would tend to lump a whole lot of other people under the hipster douche moniker but that’s just me. Nevertheless it has been suggested that the term be retired as some people do not appreciate its use and others find the term too generic. I’ll admit that I don’t have an issue with this as long as a suitable substitute is found. Well, it appears that the British of all people have provided the world with an alternative.
I think that will work just perfectly. By the way, if you didn’t enjoy the post or just didn’t care; go have a Pabst. Dickhead.
