So the redneck article on the mainpage has me in tears, dammit. This is what the wide world thinks of me because I live in the rural South. Nice.
I know I'm completely overreacting, but the meltdown of yesterday is leaking over to today. This massive bullshit of an article isn't helping.
I need a hug from Gentleman Jack.

ETA I'd just like to add that I am in no way equating the stereotyping found in this article to the racism and bigotry that many people deal with daily. Today I have just been extra sensitive and this article pushed the right buttons to make me an emotional wreck. Thanks for the support, everyone. I really appreciate it. I just wanted to clarify that I am under no delusions that the redneck stereotype has had an truly bad effects on my life.
