Defining Hipster Downward

Other People Are Horrible
I literally burst out laughing a while back when some knucklehead in comments referred to me as a hipster.  The word has lost all meaning.
The term "hipster" used to refer to poor 20somethings who drank PBRs, wore skinny jeans, had beards (the men) and tattoos, worked as bartenders or baristas, and probably were in a band. Then it referred to "rich white people moving into Brooklyn with their two young children." Now it seems to mean "anyone who embraces anything vaguely trendy that I don't like."
