Default What cities/regions tend to bash your city/state the most?

I'm curious to see

Southern California: Pacific Northwest, Midwest, and the South.

The whole state of California: every region

Lol I'm from Texas and I don't bash Southern California. I like it quite a lot.

I don't know about my region but Texas bashers are normally Midwest & Northeast on this site.
Reason- Density, auto-centric, etc..

Chicago basher would be this one very lonely kid living in some unknown place, changes his story everyday, and makes 15 accounts daily (used too) and the name starts with a D. (on this site)

Otherwise in real life, no one and I mean no one has ever said "South" or "West" or "Northeast" before... like they normally say the state or city name. But people don't really have much bashing to do in real life though.

I live in Florida and I LOVE California.

For Florida...I don't know I see a lot of FL residents bashing (I admit to not being its biggest fan). As for regions, hmmm it seems everyone in the midwest wants to move here for "palm tree paradise."

In real life southern California seems to bash Minneapolis the most, their local sports media in particular seems to think we are all a bunch of hicks.

The rest of the Midwest and the Pacific Northwest bash it the least.

The South bashes EVERYWHERE. I don't think the NE bashes the West Coast states as much as the South does.

I most certainly don't. California, at least, desveres it's due recognition. I say that as a New Yorker.

It seems like Texas draws equal ridicule from any state that's blue. It's bearable on C-D now that a certain Long Islander (whose much more benign mother is still on here) is banned.

If you mean the good recognition then yes we do. If you mean the bad then no we don't. They always stereotype and generalize us expecially the south and midwest.

Some might, I most certainly don't.

People already know how much of a California booster I can be. I literally spend a lot of time there every year seeing family...

Anyways, it's kind of pointless though. I don't think anyone is personally affected by these things, lol.
