Jd22639 saidI come from a family of hicks/rednecks. galt/texas/montana/oklahoma, there's nothing special about them.
And just cause you can wear boots does not make you authentic. anybody can wear a cowboy hat.
I dont know about that. not all country guys wear a cowboy hat or boots. If it was just clothes, then anyone could go into abercrombie and fitch and drop 250 - 300 to be a city slicker.
I have been to dallas texas, land of boots, hats, and big belt buckles. I found that a lot of them couldnt dance but just wear the items because it is the culture. that doesnt make them country guys.
It isnt a build thing either. the obesity factor is ever present here too. I am the weirdo around town that walks to local businesses whenever i can.
I got flipped off by some random driver today for walking on the road where there isnt any sidewalk. I also had some guy pull to the side of the road and ask if i needed a ride somewhere. (I was 300 feet from my destination) That has never happened to me in the city nor if my car was broke down would someone pull over and ask if i needed help.My Take:
I have lived in the country, moved to a suburb of the city, then moved to the heart of the city, now moved back to the country because I was tired of sitting in traffic. I have traveled to a few cities around the country and find it interesting how each city has a specific culture.
Living here, i can tell you people arent liberal and most of them dont like or understand gays. It is also difficult to be accepted into their small community when you dont have church or family ties. The gender stereo types are much stronger around here than in the city. This area is very white enough that people will still use inaccurate slurs when seeing someone of color.
