Just cos I talk with an accent, help butcher farm animals and I used to walk barefoot in the winter don’t make me no hillbilly!
Hey! @everhopeful thanks for liking my post!!! I’m being silly
Hope you’re doing well @Loke !
Yes I’m ok and you?
Yes, doing ok. Just suffering a bit from the post Christmas blues !
You poor thing. I don’t know what to say to help you.
Lol, no it’s ok. I’m fine !
You should bite his ankle – that always cheers him some.
Haha you silly head!!
This is just me, a spoiled California boy giving his opinion.
None of those things make you a hillbilly. That just makes you a person who does those things.
When I hear the term hillbilly I think of someone who is willfully ignorant, someone who prides themself on having a small world view, prides themselves on their hate for others.
You have never been any of those things.
You’re smart, you enjoy world culture, and you’ve shown love for others time and time again.
No, I don’t believe you’re a hillbilly. You’re better than that.
Aww. Well thank you so much . I was just being silly with my thread.
You seem to be having a good holiday friend.
Is there many hillbillys in America ?
I am! I hope you are too.
I don’t really know. There are some in my area I guess.
i seen a movie about them years ago
The movie was called, the deliverance
Always a bad sign when you’re hiking in the back country and you hear banjo music. Right @ThePickinSkunk?
I’ve not seen it. I’ve heard it makes people that live in Appalachia look like a bunch of fools. Which we are not.
Yeah I agree with @Ooorgle
You are intelligent and have curiosity and interest of other cultures.
When I think of hillbilly, I think of ignorance and having a bigoted mindset.
You are none of these things @Loke
But you are very much an Appalachian girl!
I guess some people could have that as a takeaway. It’s a very dark film that plumbs the depths of human depravity. Not easy to watch.
Haha tis true!!!
