Oh, I understand the OP's point of view, I just don't happen to agree with it. No reading comprehension problems here.

I agree with the OP. My younger cousin lives on my grandfathers farm (where i grew up and worked) and she doesn't even understand the real demands of country life. It makes me so mad, but she keeps saying how she's so country. She doesn't help on the farm, unless she's 'made' to. It's frustrating.
I also know this boy who told me he worked more hours than me in two days than i have my whole life, and that living on a farm was easy. I lost it on him, if i could have gone off my mountain at that time i would have. Meanwhile he can't keep a simple day job. My dad even thinks its easier than what he does (he owns a garage).
I honestly don't really claim myself to be anything but myself, i know how to clean and tear a gun apart, and shoot it, plus i enjoy it. I know my way around a vehicle, i can tear engines down and put them back together. I live and work on my own farm now, with 12 head of beef, 3 horses, and 7 pigs. I'm slowly learning how to can, we grow gardens every year, and make our own hay. We also fix our own equipment. I love the outdoors, i hate being stuck in the house for any reason, but i know my duties there as well. I wish they knew how much hard work it really takes to maintain such a lifestyle, because by far it's not easy. Especially with this horrible below freezing weather!!!

It's a hard life style, yes, but something that bothers me is the implication that other life styles aren't just as hard, that people don't know how to work hard because they don't work on a farm. Something that gets me is some of the people complaining about other peoples' ignorance while they themselves are being incredibly ignorant regarding other people.

This. This. This! I used to think farm life was the hardest work that could ever be done, until I joined the military...

Sure, farm work is not easy. But I know I could NEVER handle some of the stressful situations that people in other occupations go through. Running a company? Geezus I would screw up so bad. Working in an emergency room and dealing with traumatic experiences and upset people? I think not. That's just a few examples.

I ride english, but have two pairs of cowboy boots. One dress pair, one every day pair. The dress pair does NOT ever go near anything dirty. I don't want to ruin my good boots.

I have a belt buckle that I bought at the store, with the money I worked hard to get. I totally won that buckle, even if it wasn't in a competition.

I live in an apartment, but that doesn't mean I don't like going and doing stuff out of town, such as fishing, hiking, or quadding.

Sure, I know where the dipstick is on my vehicle, but that doesn't mean I want to spend what little free time I have messing around with changing the oil, or replacing brakes when it is easier (and faster) for me to take it into the shop.

I wouldn't consider myself country or city, so how the heck am I supposed to dress if I can't be "country" without being country?

Dang, I thought pretty girls were capable of more then just...being pretty. I guess I was wrong!! They're all a bunch of dim whits...one day they'll be old and ugly, oh no wait, we all will. And then who will be changing their own brake pads and tires with their arthritic crippled hands? bahahahaha!!!!
This is such a silly thread. I get what the OP's saying, but come on now. Men like eye candy and "country girls" are hot. Get over it. It's not for your benefit, it's for your boyfriends, and his buddies and their buddies etc etc...If you don't like it, don't look. jmho

Everybody just take a deep breath and relax...

We all can't be redneck good ole boys (or girls) but there's nothing wrong with wanting to be.....

I think the world is big enough for everybody......and it takes all kinds.

I like county girls....city girls.....blue eyed girls.....brown eyed girls......tall girls......short girls.......sassy girls.....polite girls.....dirty girls.....sweet girls....

Oh heck.....I like GIRLS!

Now....we all feel better right? Come on....group hug....

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
