So Gypster vs Hipster argument, I guess?
Or should there be an argument? A debate maybe?

We looked up the meaning of both in Urban Dictionary but have to say do NOT agree with either especially the Gypster meaning. Here is what we found:

HipsterHipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. 

Gypster : A hybrid of hipster and gypsy. The gypster dresses like a gypsy and is nomadic, frequently unemployed, may use drugs, but in reality probably has wealthy parents, owns a car, and has everything handed to them in life. 

In our opinion a hipster is someone who is pretending to be cool, edgy, impoverished, adventurous individual with a hippie gross appearance. 

A gypster, on the other hand is a real life modern day traveller with a carefree spirit and love of art with a great sence of style.
