The Anti-Hispter Backlash

This is a link to a piece regarding "the anti-hipster backlash".


I guess people are just a wee bit tired of all the posing, all the attitude. But in all honesty, aren't all youth movements like this? Weren't the hippies so much more about long hair than big ideas? What right do past generations to criticize this movement for its pretentious, superficial esthetic, when they have left us this messed up world to contend with?

I've lived in Hoxton, and Newington Green is quite close to hipster central, and so I truly understand how annoying this all can be. But so is the twin-set crowd. All forced labels and tribal associations are stupid by definition.

But can't we just let kids be kids?
