it’s stereotyping like I live in the north of england, stereotypically, I should be living on a farm! On the moors! I’m not, I live ten minutes out of the 3rd biggest city in england! just don’t listen to people and try and see through all the shit :) x

Answer #5

You’re using ‘southern’ and ‘redneck’ interchangeably, which I think is part of the problem. Most people don’t apply ‘redneck’ to every person living below the Mason-Dixon line. ‘Redneck’ only becomes applied when someone proves themselves to be the Southern version of the Northern ‘douchebag.’

‘Redneck’ really doesn’t have a nice application. It’s not something you want to stand up and be proud of. It’s like saying you’re proud to be ignorant or bigoted or terrible at balancing your checkbook. To be a proud Southerner or a proud country girl is one thing. To be a proud redneck is something else entirely.

Most people don’t automatically think of all Southerners as rednecks. But when they start standing in line for Sarah Palin books, when they head to their town’s only bar at 6:00 PM and come home at 3:00 AM with a black eye, or when they have to make a choice between catfishin’ and going to a gun show, bam, they’re a redneck.

Likewise, when the people in my Brooklyn neighborhood start growing their beards out and wearing ironic vintage tees for that so-fresh homeless look, I can safely call them douchebags without fear.

I lived in the deep DEEP country for the first half of my life, and not everyone was a redneck. But they were there, ohhh yes. So no, not every Southerner is a redneck, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t there.

What’s wrong with Bud Lite? :(
