What exactly is a dirty hippie?

Ok, I understand the term but what would make you call someone a dirty hippie as an insult, especially if you don't know the person's hygiene status lol..

  • Maybe someone who they think smokes weed, maybe someone wearing a tie dyed shirt, or long stringy hair . . . who knows, it's not part of my vocabulary. (Now, you all know how I imagine a hippie . . lol)

  • I've never heard the term, but since hippies aren't know for good hygiene, wouldn't that be all of them?

  • Nah, it's the 21st century. Hippies bathe lol. :P My mom was a huge hippie and she bathed. I have never met an unclean hippie, just some who smell like patchouli!

  • My college roommate smelled like patchouli all the time, but she wasn't a hippie. She just didn't like to shower often. EW!

  • eww lol that's funny, and gross. Patchouli is such a gross smell lol. or at least it can be over powering.

    I was just curious about what would provoke someone to call someone that hehe. I have been called a lot of things but was called a "dirty old hippie" today, and while hippie may be right I am definitely not dirty, or old. :P

  • true, but since when is just being a communist or a hippie enough to warrant an insult? just because someone's ideas are different then yours?

  • do we even really have hippies anymore...I mean actual hippies? Isn't the entire country continually fighting the government on everything? We have a group of ppl here in Asheville, NC That always look very organic with dreadlocks and like they eco friendly dirt bathe...I think of them as street people though. If I still thought we had modern hippies I would prob consider these ppl hippies as the idea of a hippy was a noncomformist that used huge differences in appearance to boost social awareness.
