@Darklydreamingdexter Some people I know hold the opinion that all smoothie lovers are healthnuts who want to convert people to their healthy life style. I think this is odd because I never had a smoothie drinker doing this... and if one would ever do it I would think there was wrong with this persons intolerance but not with the drink.
Well that’s not a proper macchiato and it’s annoying when you go and order a macchiato and get handed this shit instead. But apart from the proliferation of this coffee perversion I don’t see anything wrong with ‘macchiato’ drinkers. Smoothie drinkers never even crossed my mind.
@Singlenotsingle Some do. It is even used in political discussion. Remember how Howard Dean was called was called latte drinking by the American Republicans? However you might think of him: why not discuss his political opinions instead of his drink?
You (rightly) can't get away with implying a political rival is gay any more, so "latte drinkers" carries the same sort of meaning to the same sort of voters who were likely to be bothered by someone being gay.
Latte-drinking, effeminate, unpatriotic all means pretty much the same to those people.
