    It's sometimes a cultural thing. When we were in Eastern Europe and Spain/Portugal (maybe Italy as well??) a majority of baby girls had their ears pierced as they do it so you can tell they are girls and not boys. I can remember walking around London with one of the gorgeous baby girls I nannied for, she had on a dress and light blue cardigan and a Spanish shop keeper thought she was a boy, I corrected him and he said that because her ears weren't pierced he assumed she was a boy. It's also very common in Latin America.

    This is true. In higher socio-economic suburbs you rarely see it (I want to say never as I never have but I won't presume that it's none), and in other suburbs you do. Make of that what you will.

    From reading all these posts I now have another question, what actually classes someone as a bogan? I have read many different things on here such as having a Strider is bogan and having a coffee table is bogan (seriously) and now getting babies ears pierced is bogan.

    My partner wants to get katelyns done. I didn't realise it was going to come up as an issue until he made a comment about how it's weird how uptight Aussies are about piercing babies ears.

    .... Oh what?!?

    I've set a few conditions on getting katelyns done which df hasn't met, so it's not been done. I am glad it's working out much like the religion thing. I haven't said no, but the required effort on his behalf has meant it's not been much of an issue. Lol.

    Particular names are bogan, alternative spelling, specific suburbs, use of particular words, doing or not doing things at social events - particularly weddings, how you dress or dress your kids, hair styles or your child's hair style, number of middle names, Yup your pram - bogan!

    Bogans! Bogans everywhere!!!

    I won't get my DD's ears pierced because they are not my ears so it's not my decision. They are her ears and therefore her decision. I chose not to make body modifications on my children unless medically necessary.

    I have a second piercing in one ear. I haven't worn an earring in it since the 80s but the hole is still there, not closed up at all.

    Oh dear. I'm buying a Valco so apparently a "bogan" is someone I look up to
