So in this video, journalist Katie Hopkins admits to judging other children by their first name. Through this, she can (apparently) determine whether or not the child does well in school, is likely to get into trouble, and comes from a particular financial background, and thus remove their child from that social group even though there's absolutely nothing wrong with the child in question.

Of course, this means she is a complete fuckwit, but has The Pit experienced anything like this before? Have you been abandoned by friends because of... how shall I say this... intellectually limited middle/upper class parents?

Katie Hopkins sounds like a bitch's name.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

Watched this earlier and raged so much. Even Holly Willoughbooby had enough of her in the end.

I got 1min into the video and had to stop. The stupid was killing my brain cells.

Everyone does, especially when it comes to names like 'Porsche' and 'Miami' and 'Phimosis'.

Yes, but I think there's a difference between judging someone because they're called 'Charlotte', and thinking "Gee, Miami is a bit of a weird name of give to a child.".

You can't really judge the kid by the name, but you can judge their parents.

I agree with this. Sometimes if a child starts playing up and it's because they've joined a particular social group with some dickhead leading it, you can trace the attitude back to poor parenting.

The couple left Britain to live in New York; their daughter India was born there in June 2004. They returned to Britain shortly after India's birth and got married the following year. Their second daughter Poppy was born 21 August 2005.

But only the truly rotten act on it and stop their children from mixing with people from other walks of life. And revel in it, as Hydra150 said.

I meant if the kid has a stupid name, they probably have stupid parents. But that way works too.

"I don't want you playing with that Ryan child."

"Why not?"

"He's Irish, isn't he?"

"No, he's from Germany."

"Good Lord! Pack your bags, we're leaving this place--"

"But he's actually American."

"Oh.. well I suppose that might not be that--"

"And his family is Mexican."

"*head explodes*"


Yeah, you can tell so much about a kid's heritage from a name, can't you? Dumb-ass bitch.

That's like American parents who don't let their kids play with "Juan" or "Miguel", because they might be one of those dirty Hispanics.

They made a book about him? I only watched the show.

EDIT: Look, there are obviously stupid names. Frank Zappa called his kid "Moon Unit", ffs. Of COURSE you can tell the parents of a kid with a name like that are not exactly normal, but names like Tyler? And then naming your own children Poppy and India? That's hypocrisy right there.

There are no "intelligent" names. Only stupid ones.
