Mine is actually the term I was "branded with" as an outsider when I first moved here. After always feeling different and somehow apart, I discovered with a certain sense of chagrin that here I was again labelled - this time with this descriptor which carries with it an undertone of contemptuous resentment as the "oppressors" of Prince Edward Islanders, (who still harbour a sullen resentment at being "forced" into Confederation by their poverty at the time and a sense of abandonment by Mother England.) In no small sense it is a defiant acceptance of that "otherness" which will always mark me as separate from my neighbours - Islanders all - who refer to me not as "the gay guy and his partner," but as the guys from Ontario."
It has the same connotation here as "DC insider" has to Americans.
My use of it comes of resignation and stubborn defiance. I will embrace the label proudly however it may be intended and used here.
If that is to be my identity now among my neighbours, I will use it among my friends here, as coming here was a choice.
You might want to select a name that you feel describes the identity you have chosen, rather than ascribed.
