Yeah okay, lets discuss class. I'm not doubting that you've studied it more in depth than me, you're older than me for one, plus you're specialising in sociology, so yeah. Doesn't mean I don't know anything about it though. Yeah I agree, lifestyle is based on financial means. However, poor people could save what money they have and go out to an art gallery for example? Or make a picnic (not very expensive) and take their children to the country for a day? Also, the theatre isn't particularly expensive all the time, you can go to cheaper shows.
Yeah, that's right. It doesn't mean you can't do cultured things if you're poor however. Maybe instead of appearing on Jeremy Kyle screaming about their ex not making payments, they could buy a couple of books and teach their children about politics, watch the news and keep up to date with current affairs. You don't have to be a millionaire to do that.
They're better quality, they don't go out of shape easily, the material feels nice, the stitching is done very well, and they make sure the stripes match up all the way around. I'm not just saying that before you say "that's what the marketing want you to think" or anything, I'm saying it because I have one of those t-shirts. I'd much rather wear those t-shirts tbh.
You know full well that's not what I was talking about. I was talking about benefit scroungers who don't work because they don't want to. They don't pay tax. They think the world owes them a living.
Omg, you can get a book for about £5. There's no excuse not to have books in the house. Also, local library? There are plenty of access routes to reading material.
No, it doesn't. I think it's a shame, but I blame the parents to be honest. Middle class families don't have smarter children, they raise smarter children. They spend time with them, take them out to places, buy them educationally stimulating toys, instead of sticking them in front of the TV.
Yeah, okay, lets discuss this also. As I've said, I'm aware you've studied it in more depth than I have. But yes, I believe it does. We live in a relatively free market, everyone has chances, some don't take it.
Being poor is no excuse, to be honest. As I've said, there's plenty you can do that doesn't require a lot of money.
I think we're hijacking the thread lol...
