mamac, i am a hick at heart. being originally from the south, there is something about southeners, but i have not been back for a long time. my dad and my midle son love country music, it really touches my heart, do not know why either.

but to me, southerners are more laid back and friendlier...at least my relatives in TN and AL are this way.

how to keep this thread from not being judgemental...any ideas?

Not off the top of my head. When I was at the law office I had a Baptist, a Methodist, a Pentecostal, an Athiest, and a Cathlic. We had many religious discussions and got along great, but had a no trying to convert and respect each other clause. Other than that I don't know how, and enforcing such a clause is impossible here.

There are "labels"? attached to different groups. Like I'm a hick. (kinda). A hick is an uneducated person who lives in a rural area. (I am one of the educated ones, college graduated even. lol). But, the uneducated part does bring on an opening to be used against. I say this coz there was a thread (cannot remember where or when) that someone was or thought they were called uneducated. The hornets came swarmin out and the thread and the meaning of it was ruined.

Hmmm, good question.

ok, let's do 'cultural'. for example Aisian women vs American women, and the differences, languages, customs.

I heard on Oprah about women from "over there" I think Asian, but am not sure. Well, it is a true story really. According to Oprah.

She said when they first started doing shows about how women are treated over there that the women always walked just behind their husbands. They helped do some liberating and when they went back many years later the women were now walking about 10 feet behind their husbands. They asked them why and they said so that the husband could find the landmine and they'd not be hurt walking so far behind.

It sounds funny, but really is so sad that they are oppressed and now have even more dangers to watch out for.

(to anybody... I am not sure where this was that Oprah was talking about... my memory is as bad as yesterday's news. So my apologies if I got the place wrong and if i might have offended anybody. Not intended at all) 🙂

We are so lucky to live here. To have rights, be able to think for ourselves, etc.

so in this sense it is a matter of protection and sacrifice for the man, and not disrespec for the womwn as in say Iraq.

i have heard that some Asian cultures, women are very submissive.

yes id also feel fortunae to be hee in the US, but also love england, ireland, scotland, italy, australia, etc...seems more like the states?

omw,

Yes, I love talking about cultural differences, it is a fascinating topic and I would love to know the ethnic, cultural, religious, etc., backgrounds of everyone here.

Hope you don't mind if I start a new thread, I think that it may attract more input from others.

Catch ya on the flip! 🙂
