What Does the Word ‘hippie’ Mean?

I keep getting called a ‘hippie‘. It seems to be the only word some people can think of to describe me and my husband’s way of life and values. I know I should correct them and say that I am actually a ‘Cultural Creative‘ but I don’t.

What I’m wondering is, what do people mean when they use the word ‘hippie‘? Is it for lack of a better term? Or are they mocking?

It makes me sad to think that people feel the need to outwardly mock conscious living. What makes it so funny? And why does it make people react in a hostile way?
