A hipster is a person who makes fun of hipsters.

After New York City, Portland contains the largest population of hipsters in the world.[1] Hipsters genuinely love anything indie or "quirky", and ironically love anything mainstream that stopped existing ten years ago. Hipsters very seriously take their fashion and interests non-seriously. Hipsters are "impeccably dressed, mostly white, socio-economically mid-to-upper-mid range, "arty," if not quite artistic people".[2] The phrase "Portland is where young people go to retire" would more accurately be "Portland is where hipsters go to retire".

The people who have the most to say about hipsters invariably are hipsters themselves.[2]
