Ok. In the Shout box we were having a sterotype conversation and I feel it needs expansion so I've come here to discuss it!
Below is the conversation as it was in the shout box. . .
Today at 11:12:19 am - Lithos - I believe it is more of a place / proffession thing, if I went to tattoo parlor without anyone
Today at 11:12:29 am - Lithos - dressing skanky, I would feel cheated
Today at 11:12:59 am - Lithos - in coastal area of town, would be a bit different on other side, so guess depends on neighbourhood
Today at 11:13:06 am - ShrowdedPoet - . . .ok. . .I wouldn't. . .
Today at 11:13:27 am - Sabbat - hahaha, so if you went to Jersy and didn't get mugged, you'd feel cheated?
Today at 11:13:32 am - ShrowdedPoet - I don't mind the way people dress as long as I get quality work. . .
Today at 11:13:38 am - Lithos - Excactly!
Today at 11:13:39 am - Sabbat - "The brochure lied"
Today at 11:13:48 am - Lithos - People and areas need to live up to expectations
Today at 11:14:34 am - ShrowdedPoet - *laughs* So you expect the only people who would work in that industry MUST dress skankily?
Today at 11:15:01 am - Lithos - noo no, those who work in certain kind of tattoo parlor, we have at least two different sorts here
Today at 11:15:12 am - Sherona - people who live up to expectations often are just promoting stereotypes
Today at 11:15:25 am - Lithos - cheaper places near harbor and more expensive ones around where all punk kiddies hang
Today at 11:15:31 am - ShrowdedPoet - *sighs* so what are these two different kinds of parlors?
Today at 11:15:44 am - Lithos - Stereotypes are around for a good reason usually though
Today at 11:15:53 am - Sherona - *blinks*
Today at 11:16:00 am - Seraph - bah time to put on a mini skirt, corset fishnets and knee high boot. wish it could be jeans and a t
Today at 11:16:11 am - ShrowdedPoet - That's rediculus! Just because I grew up poor, live in a poor area, and am poor I should live up to
Today at 11:16:17 am - ShrowdedPoet - being poor?
Today at 11:16:46 am - Lithos - Cheaper ones with worse service but much more interesting surroundings x.x, and a bit more expensive
Today at 11:16:49 am - ShrowdedPoet - Stereotypes are normally WRONG!
Today at 11:16:58 am - Lithos - ones with better service but much more boring people pretty much
Today at 11:17:05 am - Sherona - I speak German, should I start goose stepping and being all sourpuss and unibrowed?
Today at 11:17:15 am - Lithos - Are they?
Today at 11:17:31 am - RandomBloke - No. You should drink alot of beer and eat WIENERS
Today at 11:17:34 am - ShrowdedPoet - Just because someone can't afford to own a fancy parlor doesn't mean they should look trashy. . .
Today at 11:17:58 am - Lithos - I think that some 60-70% of the people actually conform to the mold where they are
Today at 11:18:40 am - Lithos - It is not even near to everyone, but it is enough to make the stereotypes exist
Today at 11:18:56 am - Sherona - or is it that society forces them into the mold?
Today at 11:19:45 am - Lithos - It does not really matter as long as they are in the mold
Today at 11:19:55 am - Lithos - hehheh, this reminds me of that prisoner EP again
Today at 11:20:14 am - ShrowdedPoet - I agree with Sherona and I think this is a debate better suited to more characters
Today at 11:20:33 am - Lithos - how did it go again, Society is people existing together, that makes civilization
Today at 11:20:49 am - ShrowdedPoet - soooo what do you say we head to the salonbox? Thos interested in this convo feel free to follow
Today at 11:20:56 am - Lithos - Lone wolf belongs to the forest, so society must do everything it can so that there are no
Today at 11:21:09 am - Sherona - Indeed SP
Today at 11:21:11 am - Lithos - Lone wolves and that everyone conforms to what they think their place should be
Today at 11:21:21 am - Trieste - What are y'all talking about? O_o
Today at 11:21:58 am - Lithos - About wether there is any truth behind stereotypes usually
Today at 11:23:33 am - Sherona - Well we were debating whether stereotyping was a good thing or bad...
