148. I have also lived in northern, southern and mid-Atlantic regions.
And have worked retail in the South, where I've been treated abysmally by Northerners such as yourself, who acted as if I didn't have the sense to pour water out of a boot. Did I mention that I have an advanced degree and a long professional history?

I haven't found Southern women to be any more manipulative than any other women. Nor have I experienced the problems dealing with contractors, repair people, etc., that you describe. Perhaps it's your attitude that puts people off?

And if being direct means that when people from the North or Mid-Atlantic Region hear your southern accent and automatically lower your I.Q. by 20 points, and admit to you that they do it, why I guess some might consider that directness an asset. I didn't.

My spouse is a professional guy, raised in the South, schooled in the South, worked in the South. I've lived a whole variety of places and I've never met anyone in the North, West, or mid-Atlantic regions who comes close to being as supportive of women as he is. And who spent a long career in public service helping women get ahead. I have a whole array of Southern male friends who are the same--and I'm also friends with their very strong, non-manipulative, wives.

I never experienced that kind of support in the North or the Mid-Atlantic Region when I was a young career woman--in fact, just the opposite.

But since DU is about progressive Democrats, I have to tell you that going to a meeting and telling southerners that they are awful, that nothing is as good as back home in the North, that you just can't believe how corrupt, ignorant and stupid they are and "Oh BTW, you guys need to listen to us and go out and do what we say and then we'll get some Democrats elected here"--is not a great strategy.
