What is Hipstercrite?


A person who is both a hipster and a hypocrite. This person likes to put up the appearance of being progressive, radical, artistic and/or bohemian. However, they don't really adhere to the principals they want people to think they espouse. For instance, a hipstercrite could say they hate George Bush because he doesn't care about poor people or minorities, and yet at the same time live in an expensive condo that gentrifies the surrounding poor minorities' neighborhood, ultimately driving housing costs up and existing communities out.

Hipstercrites do not understand that their own actions conflict with their supposed political and social opinions. Mostly, they hold these opinions to be trendy.

Hipstercrites are often young people in college or fresh out of college who are living off their parents' money.

Other examples:

Wearing an outfit that appears to be from a thrift store, which actually cost hundreds of dollars at Urban Outfitters.

Living in a condo in East Austin that your parents bought for you as an investment.

Traveling to countries and feeling proud of their travels. Again, the money for these travels and their lifestyle comes from their parents.

Participating in an unpaid internship yet not having a job.

Person A: "Elena really is doing a lot for society! She works for a non-profit and gets to travel all the time."

Person B: "Nah, she's not doing shit for society. She's just a hipstercrite."
