At least you can celebrate Christmas, kwanza, and Chanukka.

Me? I have to wait till the 24th December evening until the Christkind comes and decorates the christmas tree and puts the presents under it.

I really wouldn't read too much into these tests, there was an talkshow segment on Youtube once, in which three identical triplet took the test separately, but at the same company, and they had some discrepancies in their results. IIRC, one of them was 21% French-german and another only 11%.... despite them having identical DNAs.

Oh I’m 100% aware of the issues with them (mainly driven by lack of diversity in samples and the fact that people move around ALOT)...so I always look at them for the novelty.

Over the centuries there have been mass-migrations to and from Europa, and there's been soooo many wars, crusades and expeditions (to find new sea routes) during which genes were spread or foreign people were transported to Europe, so people here will have lots of mixed heritages too. Many just don't know about it, as it is too many generations removed. For example you have few red-haired and/or blue-eyed people in Turkey, which seems to go back to Viking days showing how far the Vikings traveled by sea.

I guess it's beneficial that such tests, no matter how inaccurate they are, basically prove everyone to be of a mixed ethnicity.

So since finding out that 1/5 of my DNA (probably through rape Sadly) is British, I’ve started saying guv’nah, t**ser, fit (thanks Geordie Shore!) and arse alot more. Also, “colour” is now a thing. I tried English teas, not a fan but since I drink black coffee I feel like it’s close. Also all my homies are now “me mates”...

As I continue on this journey of finding my roots, I want to thank SK, Crutey, Boots, and Gremlin for accepting me into the fold.
ABSOLUTELY NOT. NO GEORDIE SHORE REFERENCES. THEY ARE A SLIGHT ON MY HOME CITY although I’m actually really surprised you can understand them.

Also Holly who used to be on there slept her way around half of the bouncers in Middlesbrough so she could get into clubs for free and without being asked for ID. She’s also a really REALLY nasty person.

What is a Geordie Shore?

oh.. something like Linden Street, Good Times, Bad Times, Forbidden Love, Only the Love counts, Between Us, All that counts, Berlin Day and Night, Cologne 50667, and other treasures of German TV entertainment.

I think it’s because of subconscious notions we’ve absorbed about purity. There’s this idea that small amounts of non-white ancestry makes you not white. It’s like putting a drop of food coloring in a glass of water: immediately visible as not pure water anymore. In contrast, if you put a drop of water in a class of Coke, you can’t see it.

But it’s horseshit.

Jersey Shore, but set in the North East of England, and it’s a hate crime.

Also, sorry to backtrack slightly, but on the concept of pride... I only REALLY started to appreciate the reasons for Pride after watching several seasons of Drag Race. To hear stories from people who have been disowned, or sent to conversion therapy, or been subjected to extreme violence by their own families just for being gay? I feel that hearing these real people talking about it really hit a nerve for me. As I mentioned previously, I can pass for straight. I usually tell people that I’m gay not long after meeting them just to get it out of the way. But that’s just my personality... I’ve never had the drive to express myself creatively in a way that fucks with gender norms. But I feel like people like me, who don’t receive as much discrimination because I at least conform to the basic ideals of “what a man should be” (other than sleeping with men, which, arguably, the manliest kind of sex there is 🤷‍♂️), have a duty of care to either: demonstrate to bigots that not all gay people ARE flamboyant... or to use it as shock value to get people to STFU when they’re being bigoted.

I actually fully recommend anyone watch Drag Race. Maybe not the first three seasons, but certainly any after that 🤷‍♂️

Also, if there was anyone kind of on the fence about JK Rowling given her recent comments on social media... Her pen name that she uses for her other series of novels is Robert Galbraith. Google Robert Galbraith Heath.

I genuinely cannot believe that a woman who claims to be such a meticulous researcher for her fiction would NOT have googled the nom de plume she was using before deciding upon it and come across this. She certainly won’t be getting a single pink pound more of my money.

I live a city down— Durham. The cathedral here is where they filmed the Rocket/Thor/Freya scenes for EndGame. I believe Rocket perches himself on the head of St Cuthbert at one point. Basically, google “Durham UK river walks” and marvel at what is, essentially, my back garden, due to living above the bar I work at

Talking about mixed backgrounds, aren't Geordies what you get when the Scottish and English cross breed? :P

Seriously though I can see why you would hate Geordie Shore.

Are you a Brit too?

Also, kind of. But also what happens when you’re the part of land almost directly over from Norway and vikings land 🤷‍♂️

Yeah I'm British, all my family and I are originally from south-east London but I've lived in east Sussex since I was about ten years old.

I've been to a few weddings in Ireland, and a fair few more weddings of people of Irish descent in the UK, and I have no idea what you are talking about, so guessing probably not..!
