I reckon the male chavs and goths can be quite alright when you get talking to them on their own, the goths even in a group. Its the female chavs and goths, they're nearly always in groups of 2-3 or more and they can both be really *****y and sarcastic.

Have you seen that Dead Ringers animated bit which I can only describe as "Mr Happy in South London"?

i was going to say goths, because they r usualy out of the way and chavs r more 'in ur face' , but when i just watch goths and see them all in their own little habbitat - i go mad!!!!!! they are the most annoying ppl, there life is just pointless (well the ones where i live are!) sorry if ive offended anyone and yes, one on one they usualy are quite nice and friendly, but its their sence of humour aswel that i hate - its really blatant and crap !

As a Metalhead, I'd have to say goths are on my prefered list as far as "goths v chavs", but that's not to say I don't have chav friends, because I do, and they're pretty cool and easy to talk to. It's also funny to talk about each other's musical preferences.

"Was listening to... what's his name... Dizzee Rascal, he's pretty cool, man"

"Yeah, he's sick, star. I was checkin out 'dat Linkin Park or whatever, y'know, they were pretty meaty, yeah"

Or something like that.

I don't mind who I talk to or get on with though. If you're a nice person, I'll get on with you. If you're not, I won't.

And as for the labelling thing concerning "what makes a goth, what makes a chav", the answer is "us". Welcome to society

I think we need to look at the definitions here...

Chav = Council house and violent. A chav is the type of person to enjoy mugging or happy slapping people. They go out of their way to provoke people and want to start fights. Their uniform of choice is the tracksuit and burberry, and their most favoured music style is rap/r'n'b. Not all people that listen to this music or wear these clothes are chavs, as chav is primarily about describing their attitude. Chavs are by definition violent and ill-educated, therefore there are no nice or intelligent chavs, because if they were, they wouldn't actually BE chavs.

Goth = Someone that listens to gothic music and wears gothic fashion. Yes, this subculture IS primarily a music subculture, started in the late 70s with bands such as bauhaus, christian death...etc. There is a certain mindset to go with it, but in general you can find a huge range of different personalities within the gothic scene. Unfortunately the vast majority of people nowadays fail to know this, and incorrectly label anything in black as a goth, and think that they are all depressed/satanists or something, when it is not the case.

so I have a choice of somebody who owns a few sisters CDs or someone that wants a fight init bruv. Hmmmm.

Sorry but how hypocritical was that?!?

You say ALL chavs are violent and ill-educated then have a go at people for stereotyping Goths :laugh:

I mean i prefer goths too but you cant judge one by the way they dress and the other by the way they act. You have to judge them both by the way they treat you. Not all chavs hang around city centres starting fights y'know

Chavs are the long-term problem, some say that they can lay up to 10 eggs an hour.
