It certainly can be used in a derogatory manner, but more often, I see it used as a dismissive term, rather than a derogatory one.  Describing some-one's beliefs or character as "new age/new agey" is often used a way to dismiss their ideas and beliefs as invalid.

I guess to me that is the same thing as derogatory, pretty much. I was raised by flakey new age people, and I know how much fear, pain and confusion some of those folks are in. Certainly not all-there are plenty of just plain dumb people in every religious/spiritual persuasion, New Agers don't have a corner on that market, imo.

Goddess grant me:
  The power of Water,
  to accept with ease & grace what I cannot change.

  The power of Fire,
  for the energy & courage to change the things I can.

  The power of Air,
  for the ability and wisdom to know the difference.

  And the power of Earth,
  for the strength to continue my path.
