How to use "Flippancy" in context?

In many circles, flippancy is often associated with sarcasm. Some people might even call it a form of wit. But what is flippancy, really? Traditionally, flippancy is defined as a casual, lighthearted attitude. It's often seen as a superficial quality, as if to say, "well, if that's what you really want to call it," rather than taking the time to really explore the idea. In other words, it can be seen as a quick way to get out of a situation, rather than deal with it honestly.

But is that really all flippancy is?
