Fucking hostile

If I hear someone I know using the word "chav" again I shall have serious words. It is massively offensive on so many levels, not least in the middle-class smugness which so often envelopes utterance of the word.

I have several friends who would I think pass for 'chavs', based on their clothes, social background, blah, blah; friends I really respect. The contrast between the stereotype of 'chav' and the reality could not have been starker last weekend when I went to see Kahlo with Bottomless Pitt - there was a guy there who would fit the description perfectly, yet her was making the most amazing sketches of Frieda's work, moving from picture to picture.

I am through with smug bastard middle class sneering.
