There are so many obnoxious, self-righteous people in that community. For example, if you’re from Texas and actually defend the state you live in, be prepared for downvotes and stupid comments.
Yes, there are stupid politicians in this state. Yes, I’m saddened and embarrassed by the textbook controversy going on right now.
Does that make me less proud of being a Texan?
No. But God forbid I actually LIKE my state and indicate my support in comments on Reddit.
Someone responded to me with, “The problem is there are a lot of stupid, idiotic people there making important decisions in your state.”
DO I REALLY NEED TO LIST HOW MANY STUPID POLITICIANS THERE ARE IN EVERY STATE?
I was about to respond with “Paul Broun” for starters, but he already deleted his comment.
And I can’t even tell you how many search terms like “Are Texans stupid?” or “Texans are stupid” lead to my blog.
So to those assholes, I tell you – stop judging an entire state based off its politicians.
THIS DOES NOT MEAN THE ENTIRE STATE IS STUPID.
Furthermore, stop judging a state just because the some of its populace may not hold the same religious or political beliefs that you do.
Do you have to agree with these views? Of course not. I went to college in a highly conservative town and quickly found that my views were not in line with the general populace.
Does this mean that I’m going to say, “Yay, Texans are stupid!!!” based off of a sample size I don’t agree with? No.
To judge an ENTIRE STATE OF PEOPLE like that makes you incredibly ignorant, especially when stupid people populate every single state, nay – every country in the world.
And if you still think this entire state is stupid, then fuck you.
