Sorry kiddies, but listen here...

Being British does not make you special. It's just a nationality. It's not an achievement.

And yes, before any nationalists or patriots say anything- I AM BRITISH MYSELF. Moreover, English.

I'm not very English-y. I'm not "polite, gentle fancy, cute English gentleman". I hate tea, and I despise crumpets. I'm not some polite, gentles pushover, either. I despise how English people are degraded and treated in American movies. We're always the cowardly, weak, "cute" ones.

It's okay to like British culture. I like German culture. But when you start thinking that being born in a country makes you "superior" or "speshuwl" then I cease to take you seriously. Frankly, the attitude is akin to racism, since it involves discriminating against a whole collective group of people, instead of judging them by individual standards.

"omgosh! You're British! :heart: <3 omgosh I loooove British accents ;o; they're so cute! :3 asdfsgfdg say 'banana', please? ^_^"

Whenever somebody says something like that, about my British accent I want. To. Punch. Them.

It's okay to like British accents, but please. Don't ask me to say anything for you. I'm not a fricking puppet. Calling my accent "cute" is an insult, that will only p*** me off, so please refrain from it.

TL;DR (too lazy, didn't read):

Being British is not an achievement. Same goes for any nationality. I'm probably the only person on deviantart who doesn't like British-ness.

Britain is too proud about that empire they had.
Wouldn't you agree?

The only thing I hate being British is living in the same company as the current government. They're nothing but a bunch of crackpots, in terms of the evil misdeeds they have committed so far.

I mean living in the same country as the current government.

I'm proud to be British, but yes, I agree with what you say. Being British is nothing special at all.
Being German, however, is SEXY.
I mean, really.
Sexy bastards.

I'm a British patriot myself, but I get where you're coming from on the whole demonising and stereotyping of Brits.
The reason I'm a patriot is because, well, Britain is where I was born, and where I'm going to spend much of my future life to come, so why not put a bit of pride and hope in my nationality? It will do no good to spend much of my life being ashamed of who I am, for reasons that really have no adverse effect on me in any meaningful way.
