    Seriously, though, Emn, are you just fucking around or are you genuinely curious?

    Meh. A tad interested. Are the cultures different between Quebec and the rest of Canada? Like, really different. Not 'California is different compared to Texas olol' different.

    They speak a different language, have their own film, music, and television industries that create content that no one else on the continent watches or listens to, have a distinct history being the descendants of French colonies on the continent, have their own cuisines, traditions, idioms, slang, and swear words

    so

    yeah

    Their own films and television? Quebec types all speak English and French but prefer French, correct? They're not so nuts that they refuse to learn English, right?

    Actually, most people aren't bilingual, no.

    its fucking embarrassing

    even sillier, when you go there and you actually hear what they call "french" youre like lololol jesus christ guys you might want to go to france and try that on them and see how they react

    This seems like an ignorant thing to say

    How France reacts to other dialects does not make one iota of difference to the legitimacy of those dialects

    Plus have you even heard someone from northern France? They're further away from standard European french than the most grizzled, honking French Canadian ever was.

    normally id be all like LIVE AND LET LIVE

    but after being there and hearing the amount of smoke they blow up their own asses about their french, including claims that it is "more authentic" i dont care

    fuck quebeecccoooiiisss nationlissmmmmmmmmm

    Fuck nationalism period. Quebecois or elsetype, yo.

    also there are obvs loads of nice quebec dudes and shit etc

    but even with most of them there was some reflexive nonsense of this type

    EDIT: the monoglot tendency in french canada was as bad as middle england little britain nonsense, and should be treated with the same level of scorn. LEARN FOREIGN LANGUAGES

    Quebecois nationalism is super dumb but you can understand how the constant pressure to homogenize with Ontario and the US esp linguistically provokes an overreaction

    why would that be nuts in a Francophone region?

    I assume he's thinking because if the majority of the country you live in speaks a language it might be a good idea to have a familiarity with it?

    Quebec is huge, though.

    It's not like we're talking about a dinky little area with a language quirk, where at some point you're going to have to interact in a language other than your own in the course of your day-to-day life.

    yes, and it should be recognised as ridiculous (or at least the elements of it that manifest as this particular type of nonsense). its like the embarrassing us parents who dont want their children bilingual english/spanish. its such an insanely old-fashioned ape-man approach to identity and interaction.

    there are terrible strains in uk public thought of the same type.

    I went to Montreal with my ex a few times.

    She speaks French fluently, and I can do so haltingly, so we got along fine.

    But I usually would just speak English because I am lazy, and it worked for the most part.

    But then we went on a boat cruise and they didn't speak English at all and she had to ask the waiter for something for me and I was

    Seriously humbled

    That sounds hot. I wanna be the girl who has to put out at the end of the night after my date ordered and paid for me.

    yes and belgium nearly tore itself apart in civil war over that

    in the 1970s

    there are multiple ethnic-bargain systems all over the world, from canada to malaysia, and I tend to regard them all with quite a lot of scepticism. demographic changes always complicate things. sometimes it works. sometimes it detonates, a la lebanon.
