I get what the OP is getting at. But dude, you're a little off your wagon. Calling Brits "red coats" and meaning it as a derogatory term? It's
about as harsh as calling a caucasian a "cracka". It just doesn't work unless you posted that in the 1770s.
Now, as an American/British citizen, living in america for my entire life (but with daily contact across the pond to my mother's family), it does get
old when foreigners assume we're all gun-carrying, gay-hatin' violence addicts. Of course, any foreigner who personally knows an american knows this
isn't the case. I'm in the military, have no opinion on most war ideas, don't own a gun, fully support gay rights in every possible way, but growin
up in rural pennsylvania, i also fully support hunting. You haven't really driven a car until you've driven through pennsylvania during deer season.
Literally everyone I know has either hit a deer in their car or had a close encounter, it's essentially inevitable. Reducing their numbers reduces
the car accidents.
Anyway, that's off topic. My point is that it does get old having everyone make assumptions about us, when I know that England is also going to # in
their own ways, Canada has it's hands full of their own issues, etc.
