Great thread--I SO need to vent today.

Yes, I am blonde. I wear lipstick and I have a slammin' bod. I am also a feminist, a phi beta kappa, graduated summa *** laude and have a master's. Read: I am not dumb, vapid or shallow. Moreover, when you condescend to me, don't look at me like I'm the bitca when I make you look dumb.

All southerners are not racist, homophobic, bible beating hillbillies. Don't make fun of my accent and I won't make fun of yours. Please extend your high-minded humanitarianism and feminism to us rube southerners.

Don't tell me to smile. It makes me want to punch you in the face.

Don't tell me that just because I don't believe what you believe and have no desire to espouse any religious creed that I have a problem with religion. You have a problem in needing affirmation from every tom, dick or harry you meet.
