Oh I totally know were ur coming from! I live out by edmonton alberta and every no and then me and my husband will head into town for a rodeo or go to the bar, and ur surrounded by these girls and guys who try to pull off the country look thinking they look cool. Well sorry to say but you look like crap because you don't have any experience behind that belt buckle. A true country person doesnt try to follow some trend or try to look the part we wear what we wear because that's what helps us get the job done. No one ever saw a real cowgirl/countrygirl, throwing hay bales in daisy dukes, with a perfect tan, with her shirt done up under her boobs! Because that would hurt like heck!
End of mini rant!

THANK YOU!!!! Someone who understand what im feeling like. Hard work comes behind belt buckles and for someone to just go buy their own at the store is just almost insulting to the people who earn theirs ya know?? Gah.

I don't know if I should be offended by this...

I ride horses and have earned a few buckles from regional competitions over the years. I feed them, clean out stalls, and have to do all the hard work that goes into horse ownership. *However* I don't dress one way or another If its hot out, my neighbors just might see me doing my chores in a spagetti strap shirt and short jean shorts. Heck! I've ridden my horses around in my bikini (not the best idea I've had). My next door neighbor sometimes does her horse work in a sports bra and shorts. Out here in Southern California, it gets hot and we dress according to the weather.
On the other hand, if I feel like wearing jeans and a button up plaid shirt(one I would wear while riding gymkhana) to school, I will. And guess what? I might not even ride my horse that day! Crazy, right?
And another thing, I ride quads probably once a year, but if I was offered the chance to ride one right now, I'd go for it without asking for instructions. It isn't difficult.
Last thing, I have no clue what to do with a car. I know that when my 22 year old Honda Accord starts shaking I need to pop the hood and push a plug looking thing back into the engine. That's about it.
But that doesn't make me any more or less of a country girl than you. We're just different. No need to be judgemental.

HAHA
I went to Cowboys once before it got shut down. 'Nuff said.

Like Ethan, I'm horsey but you never tell. I blast Slipknot (Ah, Corey Taylor...Delicious!), ride and wear skater shoes, own two Chihauhaus and a pittbull (and Arabians! ) and have an affection for fast sports cars ( yeah,I also own a Dodge!!)

I'm just me and to heck with anyone who don't like it!

The real ones stand out to the real ones.

I feel the same way as you... Except I am guilty of taking. Picture with me under the good of a vehicle. Atleast at the time, I was trying to learn. Hahaha!

It's called cultural appropriation, and it happens all the time, in many different circumstances. Chances are, the subjects of those photos have no idea or intention that they are being offensive. That doesn't make it right, however. And as MangoRoX87, the authentic "country" people know their own kind.
