    I'm ok with it because mine isn't

    as bad as some. it's just when people with awesome English accents tell me I sound like the honey boo boo people. now that's crushing a girls spirit.

    Not From the South, But...

    I'm not from the south (although I did live in Arkansas for about one year), but a southern accent from a lady is VERY sexy. Just my humble opinion. :)

    Southern And Love It

    I embrace my accent.  Men love my accent too. Being Southern has its advantages. For example I can charm the pants off most anyone lol.

    Ya Can't Take the Southern Outta the Belle!

    "American by birth, Southern by the Grace of God!"  How very well spoken the gentleman was! While I have been transplanted to California, I still long for my Old Kentucky Home. Home is more than a spot on a map, it is the maner in which one was raised, the scents...

    I was born and raised in TN.

    I used to hate that and my accent, but I've changed my tune. My accent may not be very thick, but it's definitely there. I think being an English major has effected how I say things a bit; I know I try not to sound too redneck (not that there's anything wrong with that :)). But...

    I Am a Proud Southern Belle.

    I can make tea (our kinda tea, not hot and not kool aid mix crap!) and fried chicken (fried anything).  I have the accent, although not as strong as others, but it doesn't make me stupid (like I've heard from many pea brained yankees).  My favorite movie is GWTW...

    I'll admit it, I love it when Southern men call me "Baby" or "Darlin" with their heavy country accents. It's such a turn on for me, especially if they have a real deep voice. :)

    I never really noticed it until someone points out how i say certain words or i hear my voice recorded. It's a light southern accent compared to most.
