Live Them Kids Alone: Go Ahead and Feed the Hipsters

Ok, so maybe I’m going a little overboard in my new campaign to redeem and rehabilitate the hipster and “hipster culture.” But fuck it, in for a penny in for a pound in for a lot of vague culture critty blog posts that namedrop Guy Debord, right? RIGHT, MOTHERFUCKERS.

Anyway [clears throat and tries to channel Bill O'Reilly], people, the latest outrage in The War on Hipsters(TM) was spotted by FreeWilliamsburg in McCarren Park, and it will make your blood run cold… Now the hipster is nothing worse than AN ANIMAL. For shame, TrustoCorp, for shame. HIPSTER PRIDE! We are all hipsters today.

Doesn’t your problem with this sign have more to do with its repulsive implication that animals are somehow inherently bad even though they are obviously awesome? For proof:
