Alright, lets see:
Once the hipster populace becomes so big it turns “Mainstream” Then obviously the people who aren’t hipsters, the people that don’t care about/follow trends, will automatically become hipsters, seeing as simply being a hipster has become a mainstream trend. The people that don’t care about trends, obviously wouldn’t care and thus wouldn’t do anything about being a hipster. But the trend-followers, noticing that Hipsterosity became a trend, would have to become hipsters. This is a logical paradox. The trend-followers will stop following trends so they can follow a trend. A theory I have is that the hipster populace’s mainstream status will shift one way and another as hipsterosity comes in and out of being mainstream. There will always be hipsters, but the requirements for being a hipster would change. Such as:
Not following trend A makes you a hipster. Hipsterosity becomes attractive to more and more people as time progresses. Eventually the trend is hipsterosity. Thus, people who still follow trend A become hipsters. Once following trend A becomes hipsteratic, it is not a trend anymore. And thus, a new trend arises, trend B. Trend B is followed by the mainstream hipsterspehere, and the Non-Trend A is followed by the true hipsters. The Mainstream hipstersphere realizes it is not hipsteratic anymore, and follows Non-Trend A, leaving behind Trend B.
