SALT LAKE CITY — A recent study out of the University of Utah shows that a majority Mormon hipsters who leave the Church still choose not to drink coffee.
“When I left the Church I felt it was important to create my own identity”, explains Jeremy Butler. “At first I wanted to drink coffee, but then I realized I’d just be playing into the narrative created and forced upon me by the Church. Instead, I choose to not drink coffee in order to show them who is in control.”
The results were surprising to University of Utah scientists, who hypothesized that Ex-Mormon hipsters would drink coffee in order to be cool and appear different from everyone else, especially in Utah.
Lead researcher, Jason Jones, summed it up by saying: “Ex-Mormon hipster irony has gone a layer deeper than expected. However, it does make some sense. What is more cool than being different by being the same as everyone else?”
Feminist ex-Mormon hipsters are often seen sporting pioneer looks on their blogs, claiming it counterbalances the church’s recent changes in women’s clothing for sister missionaries. Another prominent ex-Mormon hipster blogger shared pictures of his temple tattoo (pictured below).
CTR ring sales have been on the rise in the ex-Mormon hipster community, but as a family publication, The BunYion is unable to explain why.
