    21 Things You Should Never Assume About Texans

    "You must ride horses everywhere!" *rolls eyes*

    1. That we must love George W. Bush.

    Uh, no.

    2. That we're obsessed with guns.

    How many guns do you own? Uh, I don't know, maybe NONE. Texas is one of the few states that prohibits open carry.

    3. That we're all extremely conservative and proud of it.

    Ever hear of Democratic governor Ann Richards? The most conservative cities in America aren't even in Texas.

    4. That our accents mean we're uneducated.

    Texas is home to many top universities including UT, Rice, SMU, and Texas A&M. Not to mention that the School for the Talented and Gifted in Dallas, TX is ranked as the number one high school in America.

    5. That we love our big hair.

    Any questions?

    6. That we're redneck racists.

    Thanks for that.

    7. That all Texans are extreme bible-thumpers who are intolerant of all other views.

    Austin and San Antonio were named two of the top ten friendliest cities by Condé Nast, and all Texas cities were absent from the Unfriendliest list. Also, does the name Wendy Davis ring a bell?

    8. That we are obsessed with cowboy hats and boots.

    You heard it here, folks.

    9. Speaking of which...That our playlists only ever contain country music songs.

    Stevie Ray Vaughan, Beyoncé, ZZ Top, Toadies, and Janis Joplin are all from Texas just to name a few.

    10. That everyone owns at least one horse and a handful of cattle.

    11. That we all enjoy threatening to secede from the Union.

    12. That every woman and their mother has competed in pageants.

    Cotillion? Maybe. Pageants? No thanks.

    13. That we all come from rich oil families or work in petroleum.

    14. That our Southern manners means that we act like we're superficial and two-faced.

    15. That we must be crazy about hunting and pride ourselves on the size of our game.

    16. That we all know how to line dance.

    17. That everyone lives in the desert-like hell seen in No Country For Old Men.

    18. That people in Dallas must be just like the characters in the show Dallas.

    19. That anyone who isn't from Austin sucks.

    20. That we all love to wear camo and gaudy animal prints.

    Truth.

    21. That we all think Texas is the greatest state in the union.
