when people say they're proud of being X or of coming from Y they're making a statement that they wish to be identified as X or wish to be associated with Y.

This could be the place where they were raised, or a football team they support, or any arbitrary dimension of who that person is.

So if I randomly say Im a huge Manchester United supporter, can I now instantly be proud of being a supporter?


Nope, That would just confirm everyones impression that you are a twat

What if I said I supported Liverpool?

 

Sad twat

Actually Screamapillar refused to post them. If David wants the definitions he can find them himself.

When David says "jump", Screamapillar says, "f*ck off"....sort of thing.

Pride:  Feeling pleasurable satisfaction over an act, possession, quality, or relationship by which one measures one's stature or self-worth.

Therefore they can be proud of whatever they choose.  If their self worth is dependent on the fortunes of a football team, so be it.  If it's dependent on the heritage of the area they grew up that's cool too.

I tend to think that these unilateral relationships tend to corrolate as a psychological tendency to project their selfworth on to unrelated factors, whatever those factors might be.  Perhaps because due to a lack of personal acheivement.

In my experience this is most common in people from Yorkshire (as is the case with your dee-daa chum).  My god don't they bang on about it.  It's an administrative area - get over it.
