Hipster, or Lesbian? ...or Goat?

Having moved to Brooklyn nearly a year ago, I have kept a running game in my head, "Hipster...or Lesbian?" The Oatmeal, one of the best comics sites on the interwebs, has really outdone itself with its latest piece on "Some thoughts and musings about making things for the web." Specifically, there is a deconstruction of "the hipster" that I feel has a strong correlation to "the lesbian," and the Brooklyn lesboqueer in particular. Por ejemplo, "Indifference gives the appearance of being non-committal to anyone or anything, and to be non-committal is to appear strong."

True? ... Or just my jaded conception of having immersed myself in this cesspool of [BEEP].

Take a look at this excerpt and decide for yourself:

hipster or lesbian?

My gaydar is constantly being tested by cute women in vintage-y clothes with "alternative lifestyle hair", Sol Moscot style glasses and piercings.. And now, NOW, according to my 17 year old niece, rainbow pride accessories are kinda an "in" thing. I give up.

I usually operate under the assumption that woman in cute glasses + piercings + alternative lifestyle hair = lesbian. If I'm wrong, I'm married anyhow, so it's not like I'm flirting with anything particular in mind. I usually flirt though anyhow, just because it's fun, and so far, I've rarely been wrong!

As a side note, I seem to vaguely recall something I heard somewhere some time ago, that most female goats are, in fact lesbians. I hope this doesn't add to the consternation. /C=
