Jokes aside, I've learned that somebody from my background shouldn't use the term redneck, lest I offend anybody.
Yeah, same reason white people avoid the n word.

The term is batted around pretty casually since Jeff Foxworthy became popular. But, in my youth, it was always intended as an insult, even among rural folks. Rednecks were (excrement) disturbers, and not thought of in much regard. In "Footloose", Chuck was a "redneck" while Willard was not.

Many classmates at my senior prom arrived not in limos but in tractors and even combines!

Even more embarrassing because this goes way beyond redneck to just plain bad parenting and white trash I know someone who has let their daughters go swimming in a pig trough! Not a repurposed pinterest project but a trough still in the pig field!!!

My apologies to those white trash I may have offended while typing this reply.

Whenever I tell our extended families back in the cities of SE WI what we've been doing up here in the wilds of the UP, it always sounds like a redneck joke . Ex: you know our kids are rednecks because the first day of deerhunting is a school holiday...

Well you darn Yoopers always get the best days off Is the group still together? From a Troll

However there is a difference in being country/southern and redneck just as there is a difference in being a redneck and white trash

... when a youth, cow patties provided one of life's best little treasure-troves of fun?

... your honeymoon private pool/"hot tub" was a small, plastic kiddie pool of cold water on a cracked slab of concrete that some years previously held a singlewide trailer on the bride's parents' property?
(should do for our 25th anniversary, now that we have the "privacy" again - Google & Government be hanged!)

... you pee on the back porch?
(that's where the toilet is located, so it's that or do my business in the woods)

Gumbo DH is from Fisk (nearest town is Poplar Bluff)

He says if people wear hipwaders (sp) to school...lots of rice farms down there , they also would meet at the old cotton gin after school if somebody was going to fight. The first time I went to his house WHOA you cross over some traintracks, and there are a few old old rusted mobile homes, with cars on cinder blocks and goats chickens runnning around. Totally different world from my St Charles suburban home! I remember thinking please don't live somewhere like that as I drove down the highway his parents very nice home is on.
