What is a Hippie?


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

Because I'm in high school and because countercultures have become more and more appealing as time has gone on (especially the so-called "hippie" movement), I think I have an interesting perspective on the topic. In my school (in Nebraska, mind you) having certain aspects of being a "hippie" is highly desirable. For example, in my school, smoking weed makes you a "hippie", not wearing makeup makes you a "hippie", and even something as silly and simple as wearing tie-dye. Isn't that ridiculous? All the while I am criticized for not shaving my armpits, being a vegetarian, and being extremely politically liberal. It's a bit of a double standard. There are things that have become mainstream while things that fit right alongside them are taboo.To reflect on what you were saying, putting people into the category of a "hippie" is somewhat offensive because it's not okay to break people up into horribly general categories. All you can do is continue to do your own thing and fuck the negative connotations that come with your lifestyle.

modern primitives, returning to a living with nature lifestyle


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

I totally agree with you and it breaks my heart in so many ways to see how far we've strayed from natural existence. We're not only hurting Mother Earth, but we're hurting ourselves and those around us tremendously.

dreads and jobs


dreads jobs employment issues

I work at a very liberal store and coffee shop. When my boss found out I was dreading she wasn't excited but I don't think she minds. Because I live in the midwest, we're a little low on tolerance, but I think we're moving in the right direction.
