I get called a hippy all the time. And I mean EVERY DAY. Cuz I have dreads, drive a VW bus or two and have deadhead stickerd on it. They dont know I love GG Allin, Murder Junkies , old skool punk and old thrash metal in general. So I just smile and wave. Wait till I get me a good CD player and some bad ass speakers!

And what do you call the guy chewing tobacco driving a big ol truck with mudders and rebel flags on it, and jamming out to country music with his GF in the middle of the seat?

These are called stereotypes, and they can be very discriminative, but in most cases kind of true. Obviously, what we do, how we act, and the way we look are going to make the impression of who we are. I hate to say it, but I am guilty for judging people like that. We all do it!

I don't like being called a Hippie either, but I understand that I fit the mold. However, I was born in 1972. To me, there were only hippies back in the 60's and 70's.

Nothing wrong with a little peace, love, and happiness though!

Growing up in NH I never would have thought I was a hippie. I grew up with parents that used to be hippies in the late 60's. I learned to recycle and care about the environment at a young age and everything else that goes along with the hippie stereotype. When I moved down here to NC I would describe all these things about me and the way I talked about stuff and that I had VW buses made me sound just like a hippy. So I just go along with it and call myself "The Suburban Hippy."

anytime i hear that i always ask for a definition in case my understanding of it is different. we were told about hippie busses while camping this weekend, but amongst ourselves we couldn't see it. maybe it was the moonlight last night.

past busses:
'73, '85, '93, and '93

I run HippyMotorsUSA.com, I get picked on all the time for NOT being Hippie enough! I guess I am supposed to have long hair, be stoned and smell bad. Because those are the things people tell me I am not. Wierd! I just explain you don't have to be those things to be a "hippie" it confuses em everytime!

Don't worry, I get called a hippie for driving a bus too and I seriously doubt I fit most folks image of the stereotypical hippie.

I think most folks cross over into several genres of stereotypes.

I only get called a hippie when I'm driving my bus. There was a time, and a hairline, when I had dreads and I got the "hippie" thing a bit more.

I try to skirt around stereotypes.

I'm a VW owner who doesn't like "The Dead"
I'm a Scout Leader who plays in a band called Take Drugs
I'm a father who skateboarded to work for 5 years (now it's too far)
I'm an art director without a cocaine addiction
I'm in marketing but I'm fiercely attached to the truth
I'm a vegan but I know how to cook a very good steak (so I'm told)

Labels are for packages.

I'm pretty sure I'm too young to be a hippie. Let me check. Yeah, I never had a draft card to burn.
