I’m not posting here from MA. I live in NH. But I’m from MA just like you. There’s still a lot of hate for people who moved here for some reason.

You've heard the term, 'the ugly American' regarding US tourists overseas? When I lived in Italy, they were often easy to spot.

MA people are the ugly Americans of New England.

I’m trying to imagine saying this with a straight face while living in a world that includes Connecticut.

Massholes are massholes, but … shudder.

👍 great attitude to have. You know people call us in NH the rednecks of New England. How about we all just admit we’re very similar people and get along.

Good luck getting people on this sub to approach an issue with nuance rather than making broad generalizations presented as statements of fact.

Oh I know. It’s Reddit + New Hampshire. Double whammy. But we can try to change it and open some thinking up a bit.

but we're not similar as has been discussed many times

NH is a rural/semi rural state. City people can say what they want from the comfort of their cube farm.

See you’re just completely lumping in Boston/Cambridge with the entire state. Most of MA is rural. So you don’t like city people - fine. I assume you also hate Manchester. But it doesn’t mean everyone is so different. Many of the people who live in Boston these days aren’t from MA either. So you just don’t like cities. That’s it. That’s your whole problem.

Most of MA is rural as if people stacked on top of people are rural. 2010 census because that is what came up in google and that is as much effort as I care to put in on reddit: MA pop density: 839.4(3rd in US). NH pop density: 147(21st in US).

A very few parts of western MA is rural. You may have small towns all over the place in MA, but small town =/= rural. It is mostly all one big urban/suburban/bedroom commuting community shithole.

Got it, you're butthurt over the masshole moniker. Get over it as it isn't going away. Massholes have earned it and they continue to earn it day after day.

Yeah, half the state is empty. Of course population density is low. But where people actually live in NH, it’s similar to most of MA.
