    Hi,

    Just found these completely silly pics via Google! :rotfl:

    Link 1

    Link 2

    Link 3

    Link 4

    And these 2 jokes as well...

    1) Q) What holiday currency did the Chav ask for, in his local post office?
    A) (Highlight to read) £500 in Chaveller's Cheques, and £200 in Giros!

    2) Q) And what car did he ask for, to hire from EuroCar, on the Costa Del Sol?
    A) (Highlight to read) Why, a Vauxhall Chavalier of course!

    :rotfl:

    "chav" is a term loosely associated to dress / music sense and general behaviour / lifestyle.

    just like many other stereotypes, it is not racist, though it can be seen as derogatory...

    just like a lot of others which people don't have a problem with on these boards.

    Agreedm hence I said it can be seen as derogatory, but then again if you want to be pedantic about prejudice against a person or group or persons then moderation on these boards is going to get silly and very PC.

    My post was to compliment yours as an addition, not conflict it as an argument.

    As was mine, was just saying that it could be messy if it were to be moderated with that view in mind :thumbsup:

    The actual Bekhams have often been called King and Queen of the Chavs, so this parody with models made up as the so called Chavhams seems a bit uninformed

    Is gentle leg pulling of chavs harmfull?

    You could argue that prejudice against a social group can be justified. Prejudice against the shallow minded bigoted vermin that join the BNP is fine in my books.

    But does this not make me shallow minded and biggoted?

    Evening,

    Okay, "Chavs" are not a "race" of people, and hence it is not possible (as far as the legal definition is held) to be racist against them. Unlike non-whites, non-Brits, or your gender, "Chavs" are perfectly capable of changing themselves, if they wished too. However, if you are born Hispanic, Muslim, British, Korean, Black, Female or whatever else, (for the most part) you cannot change that! So can people please not accuse me (or others) of being "racist" against "Chavs"? :lease:

    I am fully aware of the fact that the word stems from the history of Romany Gypsies, but I am not poking fun at Romany Gypsies, nor the Gypsy race or lifestyle. I am poking fun at a particular section of society who chose to live in a way, that many see as being "yobbish"!

    To me, a "chav" is equal to a "yob"! Nothing more, nothing less. I am not attacking individuals, for who they are, or where they live, or what jobs they do. I am merely poking fun at people who seem to revel in everything that is dumb in life: the appalling need to "fit-in" with everyone else; the desire to have to "soup-up" their cars; the decision to wear branded clothing, and bling; the seeming inability to want to work! That is the ONLY thing I am attacking / poking fun at!

    As for why I posted the various images and 2 jokes, I did so, purely for a bit of a laugh, and also because I was updating my Internet Favourite links, and when looking for the "ChavScum" site, it had ceased to be. And, like the title of the thread states, it was meant to be a bit of a time-wasting post, for anyone who just wanted a little chance to have a chuckle, at something silly, and frivolous. That was all.

    However, me poking fun at the whole ethos of the "Chav" lifestyle, would be no different than if I posted jokes or images that poked fun at other similar things, such as celebrities acting like ejits, or the Royal Family, or anyone who went out wearing a huge man-thong like Sacha Baron Cohen's comic creation "Borat"! It's highlighting something that I (and many others) see as completely farcical, but ultimately harmless!

    On a similar note, the very recent story of Carol Thatcher being banned from "The One Show" for (privately) comparing a tennis player's hairstyle to that of a gollywog. Whilst I don't approve or endorse of that word, because of the historically racist links it has, I don't believe she was being intentionally racist. She was being stupid, absolutely, but not racist. It was, in my opinion, a dumb comment.

    Should she have been banned? Again, I say "no", even though I don't like what she said. If she had compared the player themselves as a gollywog, then that would be something I would want her to be punished for.

    Nevertheless, maybe we should have a poll, and then incorporate the result into Forum Rules: is the word "chav" offensive, and should it be acceptable to use that term on this site? Is "chav" now considered by the majority of people to define a "race" of people, or do we see that term as being a word used to describe a person who choses to live in a certain way, that is non-conformist, yobbish, and is seen by many to be negative?!


    Pooch

    P.S. If the Mods feel that this thread should be closed, then do so. However, I welcome any feedback from others, on this secondary post I have made. :)
