Thank you! I'm a student at our lovely Portland State University, a liberal arts school whose football team probably didn't even win games during the Reagan Administration and certainly doesn't win them now. I once slung the H-word around like it was my duty as a citizen. This is, in fact, because (unbeknownst to me at the time, or at least vehemently denied by myself) I'm a hipster. Last year I decided to do a research paper on hipster culture to try to put a final definition to this nebulous, far-reaching, and self-denying subculture. The most illuminating product of this was the realization that there is nothing wrong with being a hipster, or at least falling into many of its stereotypes. I now use it as a complement for the most part, and I hoist my hipster banner high above my head. Thank you again for finding the truth that I found and having the voice to let Portland know that it can embrace itself as the hipster mecca that it is.
