  • The lowest form of class consciousness, a reversion to stereotype and parody. Their tribal mentality is uniformed not only in clothes but codes; hugely patriarchal,machismic,anti-intellectual and resentful of any aspirations towards cultural divergence. Essentially tragic groups who must retreat into expected social roles and interests in order to belong, perhaps belong. They have internalized middle class prejudices and expectactions and inverted these features to appear as an offensive action rather than a defensive one. Feelings of inadequacy are converted into hostility for every aspect of "respectable" living and all its related paraphernalia. They are best understood as Thatcher's bastards.

  • Holy crap! Hey OP, if you're too stupid to look this stuff up yourself, don't get mad when others try to help you. I can see how dumb you are to not even realize when someone is quoting a website. WOW!
