    I read somewhere that striders are deemed bogan due to their size. They are the widest single pram on the market.

    So like other 'bogan' things, it seems according to Nomsies post, that they're bogan because they're seemingly on trend so when ever someone comes into money they go out and buy what ever they think is expensive or trendy, which tends to be a lot of the things mentioned in this thread.

    I guess bogan is turning into becoming a try-hard, but not actually knowing what is 'classy', so just buying what ever seems popular at the time. I'm just wrapping my head around it all after reading the website I posted earlier, but try-hard 'cool' is probably a great way of explaining a bogan.

    I feel like I should do a PhD in it. I'm enjoying all the research! Haha

    anything described as "strider" just resembles a normal looking pram to me. either I'm horribly bogan or just ignorant.

    I bought a joolz geo pram. no idea if that's a strider or if it's bogan. or possibly both. either way, I bought it cos I liked how it looked and it's features.

    I do get the bogan aspirational thing though. cashed up big and aka "new money" spending their coin on flashy "classy" things. they don't save/invest either, for the bogan, spendings are everything because how else do you prove to everyone else you've "made it" ?

    does anyone else think the kardashians embody cashed up American bogan? like I don't see them as white trash but the way they behave is pretty classically bogan.

    Am I bogan!? I feel that there is an inner bogan in me...

    Ombré hair (but blended well)
    Drive vw golf
    Have down lights everywhere in my home
    Coffee table (currently my feet are on it)
    DH has tatts,full sleeve and foot (I have none)
    Love my uggs, inside or out
    Wear thongs all year round
    Will wear my pjs / nighty (without my undies) to drive down the shops as hubby picks up the take out
    Swear a lot (rather partial to the F bomb, sometimes a C bomb where needed)

    That's it for now, there will be more I'm sure... So what % am I haha?

    If they're not cashed up bogans, I don't know who are

    Own a strider
    Live in thongs
    Swear like a drunken sailor (except in front of my parents and grandparents)
    Tatts and piercings
    Love a drink- especially sitting out the front with the neighbours watching the kids play on the road after school
    Have fake nails (well actually my real nails)
    Cars parked on lawn (only place they can go)


    I'm probably full bogan but I hate the term with a passion. I was brought up with it as a very derogatory term so being called one makes my blood boil.

    Default Spin off: How 'bogan' are you?

    Bogan:
    I enjoy shopping in Westfield style shopping centres - mass consumerism is pretty bogan.
    I own Uggs, tights and Havianas.
    I have two (tiny) tattoos.
    We have two cars, both are Fords.
    We have a four bedroom house, for a family of three - it's fairly new but not a project home, so I guess that makes it a little less "CUBby".
    I occasionally use fake tan and have breast implants.
    Borderline:
    My son's name is not "trendy" or even top 100, but it's not a classic either. It's much more common in the UK, though.
    My Dad has always worked in the mining industry, but he has multiple degrees and has historically held scientific or senior management roles. He now owns a small mining exploration company - this might not be directly bogan, but it is in opposition to environmentalism - a concern that is stereotypically un-bogan. This also means that I spent most of my childhood/teen years in mining towns..aka Bogan central.
    Un-bogan:
    I attended an "exclusive" private school and have two degrees - going back for a third in 2016.
    I have travelled extensively.
    I rarely drink and have never smoked.
    I don't swear.

    Looking back at this, I think the bogan is winning!

    Edit: has anyone seen the Australian TV series "Upper Middle Bogan"?
    I think it presents the modern Australian Bogan stereotype pretty well, it's also hilarious!
