Default I get freakin tired of being called a red neck

My neck isn't even red. My friends/people who know me, tease me that I am a red neck because I love weapons. It annoys me so much because every time I hear "red neck" I think of the "you might be a red neck if" jokes. It makes me feel like a dirty person who lives in a trailer with a dog pack, has a mud pot for a front lawn, can't spell worth a damn and who has more car parts on the lawn than blades of grass. We have some of those people around here, and most of them do drugs and are horribly uneducated.

Now honestly, when I think of a gun lover I think of the supposed retired military personal or someone who thinks old fashioned. I consider them hillbillies or woodsman. I prefer the term woodsman. In fact, a book in my series will be entitled, "The Woodsman".

My question is, do you all feel the same way?

No, I don't feel that way. Even living in Arkansas I don't get called a redneck. Only by internet morons who feel the need to insult me because of my location, but who cares about them?

My friends call me redneck, my brother in law(city boy) calls me a redneck because I hunt, like guns, don't mind being outside, can actaully work in more then one field and I'm a man. I wouldn't get too bent out of shape about it. Just my $.02

What is wrong with that? I represent that comment.

How can you tell if a redneck is married? There's dried tobacco juice on both sides of his pickup truck.

Luckily I don't know very many people who would refer to me as a redneck. Those that would, I wouldn't hang around with anyway. I've been called hick, geek, nerd, MF'er and every other name in the book. They are just labels small minded people use because they can't understand people with more than one dimension. Besides, being from KY, a gun owner and such scares the piss out of my wife's ex-husband, so it's all good.

It reflects of their person. I like a man for who he is. I find it dumb though when they do not give a **** how they look or if they keep their things looking like ****.

That is a new one for me. lol

When it hits the fan, who do you think they'll look to for resources?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I get called a squirrel eatin' redneck by just about everyone I work with/out work (mostly Hispanics), and even my wife. I don't mind the label one bit. I'm not afraid to get dirty, put in a days work that would kill many a man, I'm resourceful enough that if something isn't working how it's supposed to, I'll find a way to make it happen with any material/tools available, I can live on very minimal accommodations for periods of time and enjoy every bit of it. And if that ain't enough. . . at least they're complementing my whiteness.

Next time you get called a redneck, just say thanks.
