Lolita Eliteism?

Do you ever feel overprotective of your Brand Lolita clothing (or lolita stuff in general)? This past weekend, I think I did something very unloli (and polite if you ask me)., for the sake of keeping my clothing nice.

Saturday I hung out in Little Tokyo with some friends, and had a good time.  My friend and I were walking over to Little Tokyo Mall and this group of people were walking towards us. This girl was among them - dressed all in black  came walking  (briskly) towards me. She was dripping with sweat - a stain around her collar and more around her pits and was holding her arms out to me me like she was going to grab me and said, "Oh my gosh! A pretty Lolita! I must hug you." 

I kinda steered off to the left of her and said, "No, no you don't." and started to walk away. She turned to her friends and said, "Well that was mean." and I said, "Yep".

I know it was really mean, but goodness she was really sweaty! I had taken pictures with quite a few people that day and had no problem when this one little girl wanted to come hug me. But I am sorry, when you are like that and you don't even ask before you attempt to hug someone, it is rather rude (the father asked before the little girl hugged me). To top it all off, I didn't want to get the sweat on my OP.

Now that I look back on it, I realize that this contributes to the whole "loli elitist" stereotype. But is it really different from the recent story and the girl who was so overprotective of her designer jeans? Is this any different from choosing to stand because the only place to sit is really dirty and you don't want to get your lolita wear dirty?
