Hipster Elegies | Reality and Its Alternatives | Issues | The Hedgehog Review
What distinguished early hipsters from other subcultures, perhaps more than political apathy, was that on some level they always wanted to impress, to look good. Many were attractive.
...
Hipsters’ claim to superiority did not arise then simply from insider knowledge (“a priorism”), but also from being good-looking. Or perhaps it was their being good-looking, their never being true weirdoes, that made the normal processes of subcultural snobbery so unforgivable in their case.

Daily Mail -- Swedish couple who raised their baby as a VEGAN are jailed after she nearly starved to death
'A Swedish couple who raised their baby girl on a vegan diet have been jailed for three months after the 18-month-old nearly starved to death. -- The child's diet of breast milk, brown rice and potatoes had been negligent and threatened her life, the judge at Gothenburg District Court told the parents on Thursday. -- The baby was rushed to hospital in the city in February in a critical condition and in an unresponsive state - doctors said she was just hours from death. -- Medics provided evidence her condition was due to 'prolonged starvation' and one said it was 'worse than anything we have seen at the hospital before,' The Local reported. -- She had never been registered with the authorities and after recovering with three weeks at Queen Silvia's children's hospital she was taken into foster care. Her foster mother told the court the baby had recovered well. '

Ice_Burn comments on TIL that a "macaroni", as mentioned in Yankee Doodle, refers to a 1700s trend wherein some men would dress up in ridiculously over the top clothing and speak in a gender-ambiguous manner. The name came from young men who had toured It
Yeah. The song was used by the British to mock Americans. A "dandy" was kind like what we would call a hipster. A "doodle" was an stupid person.

So the song is like,

"Dumbass American went downtown

in his Prius

Put a feather in his fedora and thought that that made him look cool

You do you dumbass American hipster

Learn all of the latest dance moves and you'll totally score chicks"

When the Americans marched to the British to accept the British surrender, the band played Yankee Doodle to clap back at them.

The Daily Beast -- The Weird World of Vegan YouTube Stars Is Imploding
'Last Sunday, a five-second video clip of vegan YouTuber Yovana Mendoza single-handedly brought down the luminous 28-year-old’s entire career. In it, you can see the raw food advocate, who goes by the name “Rawvana,” smiling at a restaurant in Bali as she prepares to tuck into her meal. But in an instant, the health guru’s face changes, as she realizes her friend’s camera is trained on her plate. She moves to cover it, but it’s too late. Internet sleuths watching the 10-minute vlog later would quickly deduce what Mendoza was trying to hide: a piece of fish. -- Mendoza rushed to upload a video claiming she had only been eating fish for two months, as a remedy to the health complications she developed after six years as a vegan. But the damage was done. Former fans descended on her YouTube channel, Instagram and Twitter, posting emojis of fish and taunting her as “Fishvana.” Dozens of fellow vegan YouTubers posted horrified reactions to the scandal, unimaginatively dubbed “fishgate.” -- ... “One of the things that I loved about going into the vegan lifestyle and diet is that I felt that it was very welcoming and very inclusive,” Mendoza said. “But as soon as you decide to make a change, they turn against you, which is really sad.” -- “It doesn't make people want to go vegan when they see all this hate,” she added. “It’s scary. I hope that out of all of this, and all this press that my case has had, that people can see that.”'
