When You Google Image “Trashy” What Do You See?

Women of color, sex workers, prole women.  What does trashy look like?  Too much makeup, bright colors, big hair, fake tans, obvious extensions or plastic surgery, unchecked aging, too much skin showing, fat bodies, tattoos, high numbers of sexual partners.

All of this shit is a big mixture of classism, misogyny, racism, whorephobia, and a lot of other horrible shit (what’s also interesting is I saw nary a dude in this google image search),

“Classy” is often used in opposition to “trashy” classy seeming to denote a person who manages to conform to bourgeois standards of morality and appearance, trashy is a person who does not.

Trashiness can be a rejection of bourgeois morality.
