    we have holden and ford merchandise we drink too much we swear too much we're not classy we like loud cars and really we're total bogans. we're also both very well educated and make good money. who cares we're still bogans.
    I'm not taking it personally, I guess that's the downside to Internet (in general, not just here), people can only go by the words written, not by body language or tone of voice, iykwim. I just hate everything about the term. I guess a lot of it is how I have been bought up, maybe even a lot of influence from the people we know. To me it is a very very derogatory term.

    I readily identify as being bogan

    TBH I see it as a term of endearment! Bogan Pride

    There's a little bit of bogan in every one of us...

    I'm more hippy than bogan, but most of all, I'm just me.

    Same here I had never heard of the term 'bogan' until I moved interstate as I grew up in Brisbane and we said 'bevans'.

    Really? I grew up in Brisbane as well and am familiar with the term 'bogan' but have never ever heard anyone use 'bevan'
    I think it was the Courier mail? but a while back they did an article on the different terminology used between the states and.. apparently bevan was an interstate term. It was either NSW or VIC and QLDers used Bogan. Although in NSW i haven't come across anyone that uses 'bevan' as oppossed to 'bogan'.

    Maybe you're younger than me, but it was always 'bevan'. I only heard the term 'bogan' a few years ago when we moved interstate. My DH is victorian and I just asked him what they said and he said 'bogan' and had only heard of bevan when he met me. I am now curious to know what other hubbers grew up saying depending on the state they lived in?

    I can feel a spin off thread coming on!
