My god, is full of sadness...

I live near a major university and have to drive through campus on the way to work. In recent years I have noticed an increasing number of kids such as these: the ones who will latch on to ANY trend or cause as an excuse to host some kind of social media-driven shenanigans.
Orientation day? Let's do a lip dub about it set to Call Me Maybe!
Stressful midterms coming up? Let's cheer everyone up with a Gangam Style flash mob!
Record number of student suicides this year? What could be more appropriate than free hugs, a bake sale, and a face painting booth?
This demographic seems to be made of hipster-casual girls who think they're Zooey Deschanel, plus a few awkward guys who I guess want to fuck the girls who think they're Zooey Deschanel.
This sort of shit has been going on at colleges forever -- well before social media was ever a thing.
Yeah, I was going to say I went to college and my father's been a professor since the early 80s and I'm confident it was always this bad. although he's reported a pronounced increase in people who are painfully socially incompetent on all levels in the past 6 years or so.
I suppose that's the difference I'm noticing: the social incompetence. That, and they're just so visible now, thanks to the internet.

Where are the hipsters the tags promised? I didn't see anything even vaguely approaching a hipster.
'Nerd' isn't an insult anymore, so a new word had to come along and replace it.
Jet Bin Fever
These kids are just spazzes and dweebs.
Around these parts the term "hipster" has encompassed almost everything except for real hipsters (if that's even a real thing, the closest thing I can think of is the guys everyone called "mods" in New England ten years ago) for a very long time.
A real hipster doesn't have the energy to do all this dancing. Starving yourself to fit into skinny jeans comes with a price.

I miss the days when kids would just do drugs and worship Satan :(
