On how West Virginians are not, in fact, inbred


I grew up in WV.  Love it.  Family still there.

The inbred stereotype really really really bugs me.  Because it is a) lame, b) not true, and most importantly c) allows others to dismiss the concerns of WV because we’re dumber than normal folk due to all the cousin marriages.

But you know what’s super cute?  When people use the stereotype for a laugh, get called out for it, then backpedal their way into defending the indefensible.  Really funny!

Wanna see?
