American Stereotypes Debunked ft. Bayance

American Stereotypes Debunked.png

The long awaited part twooooo of our (mine and Bayance’s ) Canada and USA collab! Now we finally get to debunk and find out the truth behind Canadian stereotypes of Americans-and don’t forget to check out Bayance’s post as she debunks my preconceived notions of Canadians.

Q. When is America going to realize that they should ban guns instead of kinder eggs?
A. Uh…never? The 2nd amendment gives us the right to bear arms, so we are not ever  banning firearms, but at some point they’ve gotta make an amendment to allow Kinder Eggs…I mean, the FDA doesn’t allow them because of ”choking hazards” but seriously, nobody’s going to choke on that capsule…AND IT’S CHOCOLATE FOR THE LOVE OF LEMURS.
Q. Do all American schools have cheerleaders?
A. As far as I know, but I have like no experience with schools, so I can’t say for sure.
Q. Is every football player a jerk in America?
A. Nope, I know a guy who plays football and he’s pretty nice. Although I’ve definitely heard that football players often get really snobby.
Q. Is there a lot of racism?
A. No, not really. I’ve never actually witnessed any, and although some people blame it for not getting accepted into colleges and jobs, I honestly think we’re pretty racism-free. 
Q. Are people from Texas all cowboys (and girls)?
A. Nope! I know several people from Texas and some of them have never even ridden a horse..
Q. Do people is the US really get homeschooled because kids are mean?
A. Oh, no. I’m homeschooled because my mom loves teaching, but I’ve never even gone to school. I’ve heard of lots of people begging to be homeschooled because of bullying or just hating school, but most parents don’t just pull their kids from school and homeschool them just because of jerks.
Q. Are there really different accents in different US states?
A. Yes! In the south, people say ”y’all”, and in Boston people pronounce ‘er’ as ‘ah’ (chowder vs chowdah).
Q. Do most people have blond hair in America?
A. Actually, brunette is more common. A lot of brunettes dye their hair blonde, which could contribute to the stereotype, and then there’s Barbie dolls, so that might be it. But for the record, I’m blonde, haha.
Q. Do all youtubers really live in America
A. Um, no, I’m pretty sure Youtubers live all over the world. Exhibit A: Agoverseasfan. Boom.
Q. Does everyone really hate Donald Trump?
A. Oh, dear me, no. I certainly don’t, it’s really just the media who wants his head on a platter. Really, he only got elected because he was a  billion times better than Hillary Clinton, who would have killed the country a billion different ways, and is also a complete crook. So…yeah, no.
Haha, so clearly, Bayance’s got some warped views of Americans…go check out my probably even more warped views of Canadians in her post.
Thanks for reading, guys!

Mary E. asked;

Q.If you had 1,000 dollars to spend, what would you buy?

A. Hmmmm….probably get a .com domain for TTC, get a purebred siamese (I love siamese cats, they’re awesome), redo my room, and then  if there was any money left over, probably use the rest on my doll hobby.

A. I’m not really a dog person (nothing wrong with them, I just like cats better), but I really like yorkies.

Q.Fave dessert: ice cream, cake, chocolate, or cheesecake?

A. Can it be chocolate cake with ice cream?

AGsInAlaska asked;

Q. What do you hate the most about ballet?

Thanks so much to everyone who asked questions! I had so much fun answering them.

And now your answers to the questions I asked you;

What’s the difference between a duck and an insurance company?

Julia said; “Well, a duck can swim when it sinks but I don’t really know if an insurance company can.”

Haha, awesome, Julia! Very true!

Opinions of pineapple on pizza?

Bella said; ”I don’t discriminate on pizza toppings, so I think that pineapples on pizza are good…just as long as there aren’t too many!”

I agree, Bella!

If you could dye your hair, what color would you choose?

Liz said; ”I don’t think I want to dye my hair. If I had to, I would just do a darker brown than it is now. 😉 ”

Sounds super pretty, Liz!

Thanks again, guys!

Hey, guys! Sorry I disappeared again, this week was tech week for my ballet school’s production of Cinderella, and yesterday and today I was there for somewhere on the order of 8 hours.

Anyway, this is just a quick post to let you know that I’m doing a Q&A! I tried this on my other blog but nobody asked any questions, so I’m trying again here. Ask me anything, and I’ll answer! That’s not all, though. My Q&A has a twist; I’ll ask you some questions, and my favorites will be posted with the Q&A.

Summer Questions;

Opinions of pineapple on pizza?

What’s the difference between a duck and an insurance company?

One more thing-I’ve been a little uninspired lately, so I’d love some post requests!

Ask away, cupcakes!
