@MrsUPS:  well, I do associate it with conservative racist homophobic Biblethumpers. Obviously you all aren’t that way, but the fact is, the epicenter of that mindset in the U.S is in the South. 

I also think of super friendly people, really good food, heat and humidity, green landscapes, awesome music (Nashville!) and bugs.

sweet tea, green tree frogs, the Bible

 

Actually I pretty much lived in the South for awhile even though I’m not from there and I don’t live there now.  I’d also throw humidity in there.

Mint juleps, willow trees, big white houses, muggy hot weather, drawls, politeness, big hair.  

I think I’ve seen too many movies based on Nicholas Sparks novels.

I’m just gonna throw this out there…

I’m from Kentucky and while my cousin is quite good looking, I am not attracted to him. Or anyone else I’m related to. And I do wear shoes in public (but the second I’m home, they’re coming off!)

I’m a southern girl through and through. I say y’all and ma’am like its going out of style and I am a bible thumper to boot. But racists homophobic and all of that is far from me. What I learned from the south is to give respect to everyone until they lose it. I’m a more modern souherner and christian though that believes in following the true teachings of jesus and not the hatred the old school church taught. 

And there is jo denial that our food and music is incredible. tHe humidity though I could go without

Sorryvfo the typos. ThIs phone has a really small keyboardr

Country and bluegrass music

Comfort foods

Friendly people – less uptight than in the Northeast

Religion

Southern accents

Walmart. I know Walmarts are everywhere, but I still think of Walmart

Plantations

Rednecks

Rich people (oil tycoons, LOL)

I’m from the Northeast but I went to college in Austin, Texas. I remember when I first told my high school friends that I was going to Texas for school they all were saying things like, “are you going to ride a horse instead of using a car?” and “don’t come back as a cowgirl.” Ridiculous.

Im born and raised southern, sweet tea, football, warm weather, manners, hospitality 🙂 im southern and proud of it and no we are not all racist, baptist, homophobes but we do have some values that other parts of the country may disagree with (im in georgia and we are very conservative here outside of atlanta) but that is culture and every area of the country is unique.

I lived in DC for a while and I loved the city but people were much less friendly!

I’m from KY (we’re at the very northern edge of the South) so my views are slanted towards the positive, but I think of good food, good music (I adore bluegrass), warm and friendly people, big close-knit families, amazing accents, heat, and inability to deal with snow.

Not saying this is really ture, but many of the guys I grew up with claim that there is a direct correlation between percentage of attractive females and latitude (at least in the US) with southern girls being the prettiest. Apparently they kept notes while scouting colleges all over the country. I think it has a lot more to do with southern girls just putting in more effort. But there you go…
