I don't mind seeing "city-folk" dressed as a cowgirl/boy, to me, that's just their own style of clothing.. It's when somebody who has grown up in the city, with no actual knowledge of a farm, tries to tell me how to do the job I been doing all my life.. That's when it annoys me.
Oh, you've never seen a cow in your life? Here, let me be taken away into narnia by your knowledge of how to do MY job.... No.
I milk cows, I live on a dairy farm, we raise calves, we cull animals(humanely) we breed our own beef, it's just us, it's our lifestyle, our choice, our means of survival, and I don't appreciate when somebody with no understanding of that tries to tell me otherwise. Do I go up to a lawyer and tell them they aren't following the justice system and I could do a better job? Hell to the no, no way.. So don't tell me how to do my job ;)
I ride english, you know, jodphurs, long leather boots etc.. But I do love a good pair of cowboy boots, and a nice western saddle.. Am I a wannabe if I walk around in my cowboy boots? So nah, the clothing side of it doesn't bother me.. Just the opinionated people who seem to think their way is the right way even though they don't know any of the ways
-Not that I hate opinionated people at all!! Hell, I am one.. But I can accept when my opinion isn't wanted nor correct is all :)
