Guy, if you want to tell your buddy that you pick up a lot of women at 1:55 a.m. at Jack's, just say so.

Guy #1: I don't get what the deal is with Ugg boots...
Guy #2: Oh, I fully get Ugg boots... they're like a girl who has a "killer personailty", if you get what I mean. They ain't that good-looking, but in the end they can still get the job done!

(Guys high-five each other.)

Guy #1: Dude! So true!
Guy #2: Don't I know it.

Kudos to Overheard at Western for the killer title. Lets face it, there is no shame in picking up at last call: A hookup is a hookup (as long as they aren't trully fugly).

I don't think Western students can afford to be as picky as 'no herpes'. That would lead to no hookups post-frosh week.

Today is my birthday. When I blow out my candles, do you know I'm going to wish for?

My wish is going to be that all those ridiculous, ugly as hell pieces of crap people call footwear (Ugg boots) to be sent into the sun, never to be seen again.

I don't understand why girls don't realize that Ugg boots SUCK that they are UGLY and people MAKE FUN OF THEM FOR OWNING A PAIR OF UGG BOOTS.

If some bigot makes fun of homosexuals for their (stereotypically) flamboyant clothing and public mannerisms - do you think the fags should care or be bothered by that fact?

Similarly, if a bigot were to make fun of Jews who wear yarmulkes or Hindus with turbans... why should those religious adherents spend any time at all being concerned by what small-minded strangers think?

If I were so inclined to wear Uggs (although I'm a guy so it's not high on my list of priorities), I'd do so without being troubled in the least that (at least based on the prevailing sentiment here) a vocal segment of the population finds them aesthetically displeasing. To be honest, I expect I'd actually derive great pleasure from the fact that such people seemingly can't find anything better to do than to be bothered by things which really don't affect them at all.

Good point 2:23.. though your opinion is hampered by the fact that Ugg Boots are neither religion nor sexual orientation. They just suck.

6:31 --> Please permit me to amend my hypothetical...

"I think that women who choose to wear jeans are a disgrace to their gender! Jeans are worn by rough men who labour in the meanest of occupations. Everybody agrees that true, proper ladies ought only to venture outdoors wearing skirts or dresses! Anything else would be undignified and is properly treated as a scandal."

Wearing jeans is neither an expression of a religious devotion or sexual orientation. Women have alternatives to jeans (just as they have alternatives to wearing Uggs).

My point is just that the people who harbour a deep animosity towards Uggs today could find much common ground with the positions of The Defenders of the Patriarchy a century ago (whose argument I attempted to approximate above). Neither Uggs nor jeans have any impact on people who aren't wearing them. So why get so worked up about it?

So basically I, nor anyone else, are allowed to voice an opinion about a fashion trend we dislike? I bet people in the 1980's had the same debate over shoulder pads and Vanilla Ice... I don't dislike the people wearing them, I just dislike the item itself. I don't see how that's a societal problem.

Would you take the same approach if I said pizza was stupid?

Sigh. 2:23, if you would stop being the biggest geek I have ever seen on this website, I'm sure you would agree that Ugg Boots are a disgrace to humanity.

Are you a feminist or something? Or a feminist lesbian? Or a nun? Or are you just a fucking moron?

Yes, I hate Uggs, but that does not mean that I am some fucking defender of the patriarchy, you piece of shit.

Uggs are ugly and stupid. It's not an opinion, it is just a fact of life.

Hindus do not wear turbans; Sikhs do.
In the future, please refrain from using false statements to prove your point. Alternately, apply that skill to earn money and apply for a position at Fox news.

First off - I'm not 2:23, and I don't own uggs. I am a lesbian, so if you guys still want to use that as an insult..well I'm not saying you'll sound bigoted, but I'm not saying you won't either.
I'm pretty sure what 2:23 was directing their message towards was people that go on about what morons people are that WEAR uggs, not people that go on about how stupid uggs themselves are.

2:40 --> Your mom used to be my main hobby... 3 days a week and 4 times on Saturday. And I agree, she does need to get better! (As you properly inferred, boredom with the same old thing was what brought me to the loving embrace of this website in the first place.)

And 6:31, what 6:37 said is exactly my position. You are perfectly entitled to your opinions about most everything. I only wanted to point out how odd it appeared to me that people make the leap from not liking Uggs... to apparently wanting to slaughter (to adopt Bob's typically understated language) and question the intellectual capacity of anyone who thinks Uggs are terrific.

So in answer to your question: "Would you take the same approach if I said pizza was stupid?"... no, I see nothing wrong with that statement in the least. However, if you had said that anyone who enjoys pizza was stupid... then yes, I'd be back to my first post.

Hate the sin, love the sinner... that's my motto.

-- 2:23

And for what it's worth, I don't advocate slashing throats as a general practice (or even as a specific one). However, what other people advocate while pretending to be someone else - and on an anonymous message board no less - really isn't something I can control.

Dear 2:23 -
If you take a look back to my original post you might note that I have not at any point attacked Ugg boot wearers, I just said Uggs suck. So there really was no reason for that last post which suggests I'm an Uggboot wearer/Pizza eater bigot. Nor this one that I am writing now. That is all.

....I'm gonna go get me a slice of pizza/12:14's mom

Bob the Ugg Conqueror,

You're hilarious, but I'm afraid that your humor is lost upon most of the dimwits that write in here. Western is not exactly the best place to find people who appreciate anything witty. Witness the person who replied with "Faaaaaaaaaaaaaag" - to that person, that is so highschool. Time to mature.
