Why do people with Gauges hate others with fake gauges?
Have you ever though that /maybe/ they wish not to stretch their ears? Maybe their religion, work, or even parents won’t allow them to? Maybe they just like the style of the fake ones that real ones do not come in?
I also don’t see why you even give a fuck what other people are doing. If you are going to be so upset by something as simple as fake gauges that you would rip them out- something is wrong with you.
I wouldn’t tell anyone to rip them out, but it demeans the people who really do it. Just like fake currency demeans a real currency, making it seem less valuable. The problem is that people that are wearing fake plugs or spirals usually boast about it like they’re too good to need to actually stretch their ears, and again making those of us that do stretch our ears seem like the stupid ones. Or at least that’s been the case with anyone I’ve ever actually seen/met wearing fake ones. It’s cool if you like the style, but there’s no need to act like you’re better because you didn’t have stretch your ears-whatever the reason.
