We get it, Coronation Street. Working class people show their midriffs and scream, but ars all right really angry FUCK OFF.

AIBU to be fucking sick of the middle class to band HARD working class people together as some kind of group to be looked down on.

YABU to watch Coronation Street. Watch Emmerdale instead.

KissesAX Mon 09-Oct-17 21:36:57

Making an shared action of people blanket an entire class is what's part of the problem in the division of classes.

Get a Downton box set. Better gowns and a higher class of shouting! grin

Funko Mon 09-Oct-17 21:37:25

Or East Enders. For non stereotype shits and epic giggles 😂

BishBoshBashBop Mon 09-Oct-17 21:37:47

Well aren't you a delight.

Funko Mon 09-Oct-17 21:38:41

Tbf, I took op to mean that she was sick of the stereotype, not sick of actual working class....

I'm.sick of people basing their opinions of different classes on fictional TV programmes but then we don't always get everything our own way do we.

Eminybob Mon 09-Oct-17 21:39:21

Your basing your perception of the working classes on a television programme? You know it's not real right?

Justgivemesomepeace Mon 09-Oct-17 21:39:43

Eh? What u on about?

MissAlabamaWhitman Mon 09-Oct-17 21:40:03

Be sick of what you like, just don't expect anybody else to actually give a shiny shite.

WorraLiberty Mon 09-Oct-17 21:40:04

Nothing wrong with my ars

It's more than all right really.

Wolfiefan Mon 09-Oct-17 21:40:13

I too thought it was a pop at the programme makers stereotyping rather than the OP being prejudiced?! confused

browncordchic Mon 09-Oct-17 21:41:29

Yes, it is the programme. It annoys the shit out of me that someone "lower class" is portrayed so badly. And the shouting gives me a headache.

Sparklingbrook Mon 09-Oct-17 21:42:05

Don't watch it then. grin

CathyMedici Mon 09-Oct-17 21:42:31

I'm just sick of the working class.

NatMatCat Mon 09-Oct-17 21:42:33

I'm pretty sure the op is complaining about the portrayal of working class people in Coronation Street.

Wolfiefan Do you have a beret and a bad afghan?

MadMags Mon 09-Oct-17 21:43:11

She's obviously having a pop at the producers' stereotyping of working class. hmm

UnmentionedElephantDildo Mon 09-Oct-17 21:43:13

She's on about lazy Corrie scriptwriting and the appalling stereotypes currently in use.

Not sure why that would merit a deletion - or are soaps untouchably correct, even when they dish up crap?

browncordchic Mon 09-Oct-17 21:43:44

It isn't about whether I watch it or not, tbh sparkling

Yes, I can vote with my feet, but it is still portraying a character in a very deliberate and not entirely pleasant way.

NatMatCat Mon 09-Oct-17 21:44:00

Just not watching it doesn't address the problem. If the portrayal is offensive it's still offensive even if only other people can see it.
