The word "Chav" is derived from Council House And Violence, CHAV. They are always Scum, walk around wearing hoodies and trakkies (jogging bottoms in the USA I believe?) And they are generally the degenerates of life that are only going to cost the rest of us money through Tax's as they will never have a job and are obsessed with alcohol, swearing and having as many spawn with as many girls as possible.

To all those that don't get it, it's basically saying our Police force is shit, and chavs jump at any chance to beat people up. Read #5 onwards for what a chav is.

(OMG I'm actually replying to the first comment-not just trying to be at the top!) Your comment is irrelevant. You are clearly trying to be cool. You are failing. (No, I'm not trying to be cool by pointing out that he is trying to be cool.) @OP: I'd have just waited until your friend was sober and have him tell the police what happened.

It's really nothing like calling someone a faggot or a nigger. 'realgirl' you have no idea, clearly. 'Faggots' and 'niggers' are persecuted for things they have no control over. This is wrong. Chavs, however, have made a lifestyle choice that undeniably makes them cunts. Therefore the persecution is justified.

The way I had it described to me by my British cousins, is a Chav is like a white American (or Canadian) "gangsta". Not the guy who is in the gang, but the guy who wishes he was in the gang and thinks he's tough shit.

I'm afraid "chav" is not an acronym for "Council House And Violent". In fact, it's not an acronym for anything. It actually entered our language via the Romany words chav and chavi meaning "child" and charver meaning "prostitute". You can read more on this word (and more about it not being "Council House And Violent" or "Cheltenham Average (and neither does "ned" come from "non-educated delinquent") by clicking here.

Chav is hardly a derogatory term #7, and if it was it certainly wouldn't be on par with 'F*g' and 'N*gger*. It's akin to calling someone a skater, emo, jock, whatever else people label themselves now.

not really, there are douches in the UK too, but they're just what people have been describing them as. chavs are the type of people that go on the jeremy kyle show, which is kind of our equivalent of Maury or jerry springer's show. in northern ireland there are loads of names for them- mokes, spides, steeks, smicks etc. the girls are generally called millies. in southern ireland they call them 'knackers' :)

Perhaps those acronyms derived from the language of "I'm trying to explain it to someone who doesn't know what it is." Maybe the acronym remained in practice through popularity? Just because it came from one place doesn't mean it cannot evolve...

oh for heavens sake, a chav is not stereotyping, a chav is a chav. live with it. OP: that really sucks, but didn't the police give the breath test to prove that you were drunk?

I was intoxicated, exceedingly so, but unlike some people my personality doens't radically change when drunk, I just tend to be more friendly. - Also, one armed scissors (Vodka and Redbull) kept me rather lively and aware.

We have chavs and emos, a chav is a teenager that goes around wearing nike tracksuits, with a gold chain, hangs around in mcdonalds and mugs people while smoking underage. A female chav is always plastered in orange make-up on purpose and wear's tonnes of eyeliner.

I think a person can be intelligent, creative, and a little bit shy or lost without being emo. I consider myself to be all those things (-tries not to sound arrogant xD-), but I wouldn't call myself emo. And plenty of kids who consider themselves to be "emo" are really stupid. I don't bother with labels most of the time, though.
