A reader sent me an article from the popular blog Naked With Socks On yesterday. (How great is that blog name?) The question of the day centered around the ongoing debate about blue collar and white collar was “Who has more sex appeal?” This kind of debate seems to brings out an interesting mix of classism to me.
I think a lot of people in Atlanta get hung up on the image of wealth and class. Many single people believe that if you are in a certain job or industry, you are automatically a classy or sophisticated person. I found that not to be the case. I have personally met a cross section of great people from all backgrounds. There are upper class jerks and middle class knuckleheads. There are also great people with money and great people who are trying to make money. What does it all have to do with sex appeal?
What do you guys think? Is there a battle of the white collars vs. blue collars in Atlanta? Do you ever consider yourself to be one or the other?
Is there any pressure to have an image of being one or the other to attract someone?
