Would you describe yourself as a "coastal elite"?

I don't live near a coast and I hate people.

I'm from NYC, attended fancy-pants uni, grew up eating sushi, seeing theater and traveling to Europe. I think Fox anchors and viewers might hate-masturbate while dreaming of people like me.

Cool. I worked hard and sent three kids to university's, been to Africa and vote Republican cause I grew up poor and didn't do all that before I went to "uni".

I'm coastal but have no connection to the elitists who rule California.

I find the term laughable.....and given my poor white trash upbringing I could never see myself that way. However.....others see me today as upper class, White & living near the stereotype as you will...makes no difference in my life.

You're not the least bit of an elitist.

I'm just an average all-American guy with a deep love for God, country, family, freedom, fried food, the desert, and rock music.

That's one emoji I've never understood. Do people actually make that motion with their hand IRL?

Not that I've ever seen...I just thought it fit 😂

Haha, it does fit. I just think it's funny that an emoji of a gesture that no one does in the real world has come to mean a bunch of different things online, depending on the context.

Southern man, middle class, trying hard to keep the boat afloat.

I don't think of myself as a coastal elite, but when somebody from middle America uses that term, they're probably thinking of somebody like me. I certainly fit all of the general characteristics.

I wouldn't deny it if someone described me that way, but I don't publicly identify that way.
