Protip: If you have to describe yourself as a hipster, you are not a hipster.

Wow, what's with all the hate? I think he's awesome.

Dover 7 years, 3 months ago

See above posts implying that he is not a man and dogging him for calling himself a hipster. Please calm down.

SofaKing 7 years, 3 months ago

I liked him immediately. He's fabulous! MIdwest muser is just jealous because he/she was not featured.

Midwest muser did not express simply an opinion, but expressed disdain towards the man featured by implying that he was not a man. You know this, but you play dumb. You seem to like to instigate. Adults are able to express opinions in a civil manner, without resorting to rudeness. Only children make fun of that of which they don't agree or understand.

To consumer1: hate, as used by Dover is appropriately used as slang. The definition of hate according to the Urban Dictionary:


A person that simply cannot be happy for another person's success. So rather than be happy they make a point of exposing a flaw in that person.

Hating, the result of being a hater, is not exactly jealousy. The hater doesnt really want to be the person he or she hates, rather the hater wants to knock somelse down a notch.

  1. Hater

Anyone with a opinion.

  1. Hater A person that develops a strong dislike for another, solely basing their own opinion on personal judgment rather than objective merit. The formation of a hater's contempt commonly arises from jealously and/or resentment. Individuals that make fun of, or "hate," others for justified reasons cannot be legitimately classified as "haters;" although many idiots attempt to rationalize their own situations by doing so. Additionally, the word "hater" is frequently overused, mainly by members of the rap and hip-hop communities.
