Hipster/poofter

If you replaced the word ‘hipster’ with ‘poofter’ you get perfectly-formed putdowns from the western suburbs of my childhood.

So does this mean that calling someone a hipster is a more sophisticated, ironic way of calling them a poofter? That anti-hipsterism is hipster homophobia?

Now I’m confused.
