Dear Hipster: How did you feel about that reader calling you a “beta male” (at least by implication) a week or so ago? — Joe
Unimpressed. She’s doing the internet troll thing all wrong by mixing pejoratives, so to speak. She gets the whole “hipsters are ruining XYZ” rant more or less right, but the whole “beta male” bit belongs in the comment section for a YouTube video made by angry Counterstrike players, not in an anti-hipster rant! Fifty percent of hipsters are female, after all. You have to keep your negative half-cooked stereotypes straight, otherwise what’s the point of being super tough on the internet?
