ive been called a hippie, a goth, an emo, a freak, just plain wrong, a psychopath and many more.



Yep, I've been called all of these before, along with multiple variations and many more. Generally I just smile sweetly and thank them....or I start spinning fire and that usually shuts them up. smile

Although it does some times get to me that people are so easily stereotyped and put into 'catergories' such as 'hippy/hippie, goth ect. But I suppose, people are allways going to do it and I can't be bothered wasting time on people who think it's an insult to call some one a mung bean when they most likely don't even know what it means.

I like your definition of a mung bean though Skully, very explanitory... ubblol

Posted:I think that being called a hippy all depends on what you think a hippie is...? If you think for yourself, wear what keeps you comfortable and happy with your appearance, do things your way.... Spinning fire generally gets two reactions;
Wow, thats amazing (usaully with no reflection on you as a person) or;
name calling, slurring and stupidity. (this is where ppl will try their hardest to make you feel silly)
Because the above ppl are, like stated by several others, affraid of what they don't understand. You most likely were called a 'mungbean' and a hippie because you could do something this person couldnt, and to mend a broken ego, they lash out at you and feel they have justified their inadequacies. The rest of the ppl out there, have a certain level of respect for things beyond their abilities... Feel good that you have an ability that is something fun to do and fun to watch, forget the people who make you feel bad for doing it...

Ok I was around in the 70's and I never heard anyone call a hippy a Mungbean and I'm sure if they did most of the hippies I know would have just giggled and carried on painting flowers on each other.

People can call you any name they like and it cannot hurt you unless you let it. Ignore them and just get on with having fun. After all who is it here that is having the more fun, you spinning joyfully, keeping fit whilst having a blast or them hanging about with nothing better to do than call out stupid names at people having fun?

I still know some hippies like that, but they're all on the sunny southwest coast, and I'm stuck in the drab midwest.

Posted:Greddyfirebrat, do you value the opinion of the people that called you names? Why is what they think of you important to you? Did they show you any respect?

These are questions you need to ask yourself.

Hun, if someone disrespects you by calling you names when they don't even know you, it kind of implies they are not someone you would want to know anyway. They are not someone you would trust or value in your life, so the names they call you mean nothing.
