hipster is the same as a pirate

Hipsters vs Pirates. Is there a difference?

Hipsters were born from the counter-culture. In the past decade the hipster movement has grown and has gradually moved from periphery into the mainstream of society. When punk became plastic and the hip hop lost their momentum for social change, the remaining counter-cultures merged together into a single, continuously mutating trans-atlantic melting pot of styles, tastes and habits, which can be described as a hipster movement, explains Douglas Haddow.
