Question: Is hippie a bad word?

By Beat Generation standards, these newcomers were not cool enough to be considered hip, so they used the term hippie with disdain. American conservatives of the period used the term hippie as an insult toward young adults whom they considered unpatriotic, uninformed, and naive.

What does it mean when someone calls you a hippie?

: a usually young person who rejects the mores of established society (as by dressing unconventionally or favoring communal living) and advocates a nonviolent ethic broadly : a long-haired unconventionally dressed young person.

Is a hippie a stereotype?

The hippie stereotype is that they are eco-nuts who are addicted to drugs, crazy about sex and obsessed with peace. The stereotypical image of a hippie is a person with a headband, long flowing hair, wearing tie-dyed clothes. This stereotype may be correct for some hippies but certainly not for all of them.
