Ask DB1: What about a "Regional Leniency Rule"?


—-
Hey DB1,

When I was in university a year back, one of my floor-mates in my residence was a guy from Argentina.

He was a decent guy to talk to, and seemed generally non-douchey.

However, some recent photos of him surfaced since he returned back home in Buenos Aries after he graduated. Now, he’s become more douchey, about a stage 3 clubdouche (he has major douche aura – his scarf baggery enrages me to the point of shoving an acorn up a monkey’s butt). The problem that I have, DB1, is that Buenos Aries is a very sexy city, so naturally a lot of Euro/Non-North American bags who party there acclimatize to that environment.

Is there such thing as a regional leniency rule? I realize that New Jersey is unforgivable, but can those who live in exotic foreign cities be an exception? I know the guy was a decent fellow, yet his image repulses me. Does a douche’s image outweigh his genuine personality?

Cheers,

No. There is no regional leniency granted, but there is cultural variance that must be accounted for. However we must not confuse variance with forgiveness.

Identifying douchal permutation, especially in a place like Buenos Aires, requires us to recalibrate our signifiers, but to still tag “douche” where we find it. Your friend is loaf choad.
