Valley girl isn't a joke. Well, she is, but the phenomenon was real enough. I lived in the Basin for years and pretty much tripped over them.

It was just tribalism. "If you don't look and act like us you're an outcast." They wound up being a parody of themselves.

Thank you.  This is exactly what I meant when I first made the comment that came out something like, "valley girls aren't real."  The phenoenon is very real.  The girls exist, but the girls are/were just wearing masks.  Someone started it, and it became a fad.

Having said that, valley girl was the closest commonly used personality description that I could come up with to describe Harley Quinn, but the similarities are hardly a match.  What does stick I think is that Harley wears a mask that outwardly says, "I don't care," and comic book fans familiar with her have pointed that out.  I can buy that because I've seen it in real life and assume it's purpose is to create a barrier that covers... what? vulnerability?  Didn't Trump's wife actually wear a coat that said, "I don't care," in actual letters?  It's just a strange and often offensive thing that people do.  It's kind of a eye rolling trip to observe it in Harley, but exaggerated as it is, I couldn't take it non stop after 45 minutes.  One hour and forty-nine minutes would have sent me over the edge.  Even though the movie is fantasy, it's possibly too close to home for me.

Wiggers would be a more like-for-like... valley girls generally come from money, whereas the chav (as far as I am aware) are generally from low-income communities.

Valley girl would be more whatever your "posh" stereotype is.

She wore that to the border when people still cared about children being separated from their families and thrown in cages.

Yes, we care about unaccompanied children (aka young prostitutes) and children with fake parents (aka with their pimps).  No, invite all 7.5 billion people to the US, if they will only vote Dem.  And give them free benefits, that even people born here don't get.  And I am pro-Hispanic.  Hispanics born here don't want all the non-US Hispanics to move here, either.  Guess everyone is racist now.

I think I just want to see a movie where US valley girls and British chavs fight to see who'd win.

I was more thinking of a blood brawl, nothings more creative then planning your opponents demise in an arena of death

"Conan: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!".  Beta males understandably fear alpha males.  Alpha females follow alpha males, they never mate with beta males, except to keep them as gigolos.

Triggered, snowflake?

Again, nope. I already knew how it was going to end. Now tell me more about how terrible it that an actor brought awareness to the  highly inhumane practices of the meat industry?

The joker in the Joaquin phoenix movie isn't the same kind of joker who's been tormenting someone like Harley Quinn, because usually, the sympathy you have for anyone in the dynamic is usual Harley for being one of the jokers victims. In phoenix's joker role, the sympathy goes to him because of how his background is laid out, so the concept of Harley wouldn't fit as well with the Arthur fleck joker.

Most of the people Arthur kills are people who were mean to him. Most of them. But remember, there is one exception. The woman he had this imaginary relationship with. She literally did nothing to him, but he walks in and murders her anyway.
