I Am a Southerner

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,141 People

    I'm proud to be from The South.

    I was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, which is why I have a Conferderate flag on my door. I feel sorry for the people who are offended by that flag because they are weak, sad, insecure losers who need to get a life and grow some cojones!

    Southern living: If it grows,

    it'll stick ya If it grows, it'll bite ya. People actually grow, and like okra, Sweet tea is acceptable for all meals, and you start drinking it when you're two. "Fixinto" is actually one word, Y'all is singular, all y'all is plural. You only own six spices; Salt...

    I'm a southerner, born & raised in Texas.

    I love cooking southern meals to serve family & friends...my favorite beverage is coffee & of course sweet tea! We say yes sir & yes ma'am, we acknowledge others as we drive down the road with a smile, two fingers raised to say hello as we pass by or by a simple nod of the head...

    Southern Aesthetic

    Geographically speaking, I'm only about 300 miles from being a Yankee. Being born just a few hours drive south of the Mason-Dixon line, I've sometimes wondered about my claim to any sort of southern heritage. Most folks will tell you I don't even have the typical southern...

    but I just considered myself logistically challenged for 26 yrs. I got it right in 2000 and I'm never going back. I live in NE Georgia.

    Southern Women ~ Author Unknown

    Most Yankees don't get what being a southerner

    means. They have forgotten the meaning of pride, family and religion. Men don't know how to respect a lady. They don't understand what our flag stands for. They put us down but what they truly don't understand that north and south is as different as night and day.

    What I Love About The South

    I love Southern gentleman! They still open doors, pull out chairs tip their hats and say "yes Mam!" I love the sugary sweetness of cold southern ice tea, there's nothing like it. I love the beaches that reach to far off places and the mountains that are as old as time. I love...

    In Praise Of The Southern Woman

    I was raised around southern girls and, I must admit, I have a warm spot in my heart for them to this very day. One of the most charming things about them is that properness in which they conduct themselves, all the while this mischevious earthiness bubbling just below the...

    Rules of the South

    The 'Rules of the South' are as follows!!! 1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot. 2. Turn your cap right, your head isn't crooked. 3. Let's get this straight; it's called a "gravel road." I drive a pickup truck because I want to. No matter how...

    i love living in the South

    even though I don't really count Southern Maryland to be as country as Alabama, or such, but I just love it. I love being around corn fields, watching oat, sunflowers, and tobacco grow. I love all the land out there and the isolation. I love watching the horses, goats and cows...

    Being southern, and being a "cowgirl" are two,

    totally different things, Most girls dress like the stereotypical stuff, cowboy boots, hats, plaid, and ripped jeans. But that's not how any of that works here. There are things that you do here, and most of it starts by saying "yes ma'am, no ma'am, yes sir, no sir, And please...
