:) I decided to make a poll
Now, Im not sure if there are Chavs anywhere other than Britain but I dunno

I know lot of teens become Goths or Chavs, but which would you prefer people to become, if they had the choice

Would you rather have teens be Goths or chavs.

I personally think Goths, I'd rather teens choose to be goths than chavs, cos chavs get into a lot of trouble on the streets. They are always causing trouble so I'd prefer goths...

Excuse me, but what is a chav?

I'd have to go with Goths. I think Goths are pretty cool people, and plus, they dont walk round in gangs, drunk out of their faces beating people up.

We only have them in Britain
Heres a DEFINITION (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trevs);)
They are like Backstreet gangs mainly in sub-urbs of cities

People that can not behave are inacceptable. And since I have been spending my weekends in goth clubs long before a lot of you were born ... :D

Kamrusepas
05-01-06, 09:37
Goth clubs?

Anyways, a chav sounds a bit like a hiphopper, but I don't really know. I guess I'll have to say I prefer goths because they're mostly alone in the darkness, and not causing trouble to anyone.

05-01-06, 09:55
You know? Clubs where they play music and people of the same sub culture meet and dance. ;)

Goths dance? :eek:

Goths, definitely. They dress and look cool, and don't cause any trouble. All the Chavs in Britain should be shot. No more 'awright and dat man, innit?' and pathetic Eminem-style hand gestures. And no more eggs thrown at our Sky dish.

Kamrusepas
05-01-06, 11:05
So they are kinda like hiphoppers?

Ampersand
05-01-06, 11:07
Wannabe, uncool hiphoppers. With all their 'designer' bling and tracksuits bought from the local market.

Kamrusepas
05-01-06, 11:14
Yeah. I never really liked them [generally speaking]. They seem to have a problem with anyone and most of them are posers anyway [around here at least. Except that they don't go around in gangs stealing and beating people up. But then again, I live in a pretty small town].

Goths. Their appearance might freak some people out and all those tons of makeup they wear can't be good for the skin, but at least they don't hurt anyone. Vampires and Satan are fictional evils - fights and robberies are very real ones.

Chavs are generally foul-mouthed, anti-social vandals, it's part of the idea. I don't know if you have them in other countries, but they're everywhere here.

The male chav is typically clad in a baseball cap, shiny tracksuit and designer trainers. He will 'hang out' with his pack on street corners, giving abuse to passersby.

The female chav will have her hair pulled back in an ultra-tight ponytail, wear large hooped earrings, a pink hoodie showing her stomach, capris or similar three-quarter-length trousers, and designer trainers. The female chav is generally seen hanging around the groups of male chavs, or pushing a pram containing a pair of chav offspring.

I should write a survival guide... :D

I think I prefer Goths. :) I am actually scared of Chavs. There's just so many of them around where I live, you can't walk down the street without seeing any. :eek:

Goths, of course! Some of my friends are. And I think chavs are a British phenomena... Vicky from Little Britain is one, right? :D

GOTHS. Better quiet and depressing than loud and even more depressing.

I HATE CHAVS. (We call them "neds" in Scotland.) My school is full of them. Here they're beginning to get harder to spot in a crowd because they've taken to wearing stuff like colourful waterproof outdoor jackets, jeans, trendy shirts you wouldn't associate with them, etc. but you still see empty/smashed bottles of Buckfast and piles of cigarette butts in the doorways and street corners where they hang around.

Yeah we have tons of neds here lol But its actually an acronym (spelling?) for Non Educated Delinquents I believe... come to think of it Chav is aswell... Council House and Violence Ive heard. Not sure if any of that's true but it figures. :p Personally Id choose 'goths' any day. :rolleyes: At least they arent a menace to society like the neds. lol :)

Go check out definitions of Chavs, Goths etc. on www.urbandictionary.com
I sure laughed my ass off at some of those! :vlol:

I really don't care who they are. I'll accept a person if:

a) He/she can show respect to others. If they can then I can do the same for them.
b) Aren't stuck up morons.
c) Don't do things that end up defacing anything or anyone.

If you can't do these things then you aren't worth my time.

Thanks for the tip,Catlantean :)! I 've just loved the BBC didactic,yet ironical and humouristic tone of the diccionary!

I'm a bit out of urban culture,but,here,in Portugal,I think we have hiphopers and goths.

Do I really have to choose?Can't I just pass along both Goths and chavs,in my adorable Nissan Micra,laughing at them :mis: :D?

I know I'm looking snob,but,at least superficially,of course(I've never spoken to a particular one...wait,I did!!Suddenly,I no longer feel sorry for being snob...ahem),Goths in Portugal are just so annoying!


Just look at the fake Burberry's mixed with the dreadful bling-blings!!!

Not trying to be difficult, but I couldn't really vote on this one. I can't vote on a poll trying to decide for someone else what they would be. It's their personal choice and they have the freedom to become a "Goth" or a "Chav". By the way, I only recently learned what a Chav was, I think they only use the term in Britain. Is a Chav like a gangsta or something?

Neither.

I find the whole concept of "Chav" very derogatory. Ironically, this was all started by a British guy who set up a web site mocking the plight of poor folk from all over the country.

Are you condoning this?

The mistake this fool made was grouping the lazy and bone idle with low-income families who work their asses off trying to get by. The net result of that was that families trying to get by with little or no money were made to feel even worse.

Now, the irony comes from the fact that this guy then started a "begging fund" of his own when his website became popular and he couldn't afford to maintain it. I think his site eventually shut down, but if you want to hold this asshole accountable, you’ll still find his domain on www.google.co.uk (search for "chavtowns") and his home address on www.nic.uk

Since when do responsible and caring people feel the need to mock those less fortunate?! Some folk should be damn right ashamed of themselves!

I'm pretty sure no one knew this. We're mocking the people who think they're thugs and gods gift to the world.

Indeed,we are only mocking those people who try impersonating the others by scaring them,forming gangs and trying to reunite as many youngs as they can,in order to control them.

That everyone has to right to fight for better conditions,that's obvious,but no one has to stand the agressions those pathetic groups perpretate,just because they were born in the wrong side of fortune.

While I watch youngsters throwing away their lives by entering in those Chav groups,normally associated with drugs,and women behaving like brainless creatures,offering their bodies to be used like if they were an object, a simple bad quality bling-bling,with no self-respect and giving birth to children they don't have any condition raise,the only thing I feel for those groups is utmost despise.
