Contrary to what one would think a soccer mom is not the equivalent of an older football groupie
outside North America. They may have secret fantasies about Becks
but the name comes from driving their kids to soccer
practice in their ]SUV]s or minivans
. They are almost always upper middle class or upper class and usually white. They tend to be paranoid about any sort of sex, drugs, smoking, or obscene content in movies or music. Politically speaking they're usually Republicans (although not usually religious right type Repubs
, they tend more towards being Giuliani/Bloomberg/Arnold type GOPers) in red areas or they're DLC-type Dems ((i.e. Joe Lieberman
, Hillary Clinton
) in Dem areas. They usually live in suburbs or exurbs although there are some that live in urban areas.
You know this area changed once the soccer moms moved in and they're trying to close down all the bars and nightclubs because they're scared about their kids.
