Omg fucking Texans
@wxcafe holy smokes
@wxcafe wait i’m from texas and idgi
@rabcyr it's just the accent, she interpreted it as an accusation
@wxcafe yeah but idgi. most of us white people there don’t have a particular accent. but some of the words we use give us away.
@wxcafe @rabcyr The South is mostly situated very East. This includes Texas and Oklahoma, which seems instictually weird to me, but otherwise is reasonable: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_United_States Notice how far north is goes on the east coast, there.
@wxcafe @rabcyr The reason I find TX's and OK's inclusion weird is that both of those states were pretty "out there" and "western" at the time of the American Civil War and share a lot culturally with the "southwest" (OK, TX, NM, CO, and some other states) as well. They feel like a blend to me. And there are some important Southern cultural institutions in which Texas, as least, doesn't ever partake like sweet iced tea and a lot of other food stuff.
@benhamill @rabcyr actually now that I think about it, "the south" in france is also south-east. south-west is... well, the south-west. different influences from the different bordering nations. Similarly with "the north" being the north-east, where the "north-west" with its border with germany has a different culture (alsace-lorraine)
