Hippies = People who go to India to "find themselves", listen to music with lots of chanting in it, talk quietly because aggression is bad, and think crystals and homoeopathy can heal you. Often have made-up food allergies.
Punx = People who try to do everything themselves, enjoy hanging out in squat cafés and benefit gigs, listen to music with lots of shouting in it, and tend to rage about stuff a lot. Eat pretty much everything, especially if salvaged from a bin.
The common denominator is a tendency to be scruffy and to peel oneself off one's armpit each morning. However, on getting up, the hippies will do tai chi and the punx will run round the park with an equally scruffy dog, or eat a mountain of toast.

I am still straight edge.
I have one small tattoo, and today I'm wearing slacks and a polo in an office.
However, I still think of myself as "punk" or at least "HC".
