People wanna be stuck up bitches because DAMN NEAR ALL of the population call stretched ears “Gauges?” Look you bitches, can you fucking blame them? That’s kind of what they’re listed as in stores and online. I mean seriously, shut the fuck up and think about it. Yes, most…
People use the term “gauges” or “gauged” because its the layman’s term.
Everyone with stretched ears will generally refer to their “stretched ears” as gauges. Nine times out of then, its because they’re usually referring to the jewelry itself rather than the actual piercing. And once again, it’s layman’s terms. If one person said it to another, they would instantly know what the other person was talking about.
You really have no reason to be setting yourself on a pedestal. Correcting people with your jargon only makes you look like an arrogant asshole. No one on tumblr gives a flying fuck about what you do and do not know.
