Endangered hipsters

You peer closer …

Are they all — male and female alike — really wearing the same type of women’s pants? It’s difficult to make eye contact with them past the blur of thick-framed glasses and hand-knit beanies.

We’re speaking, of course, of hipsters. For those allergic to the species, just be thankful that the hipster population here appears to be on the low side.

In a recent poll by movoto.com, Oklahoma City landed on a list of the 10 least hipster cities. Maybe country music and Tex-Mex are anathema to hipsters (ya think?) since cities in Texas and Oklahoma claim six of the 10 hipster-challenged spots’ slots.

The study points to OKC’s lack of strong public
transportation, bike-friendly areas and walkability as huge deterrents
for the young bunch. Still, hipsters who do deign to reside in our
locale appear to get by nicely. Some even commute via cars, albeit
begrudgingly and — of course — ironically.
