A woman from the northeast of the US has caused a stir after calling her husband's southern culture 'garbage'. During a family gathering, the woman's husband and his friend made jokes about him being 'whipped' and criticized her for not serving her husband first. The argument escalated when her husband accused her of disrespecting his background by forcing northern culture on him. However, the woman was not prepared to back down, stating that southern culture is bigoted and reserved only for those who conform to its norms. The debate has sparked discussion online, with many people questioning whether cultural differences should be respected or challenged.
