whs, not a problem. But I wouldn't advise calling someone from Scotland, Ireland, or Wales, a Brit. You'd likely get a punch on the nose.
Us English are a bit more tolerant. (LH hides under the table at this point)
Edit. and I'm sure you would not like me to refer to you as a Hun or a Kraut.
I think you are now starting a different discussion. But let's not open that one. But as far as the Scottish and the Welsh go, are they not part of Great Britain? The Irish is different - I guess they are Irish.
Thankyou ScottW, I was sure that calling every American a yank was offensive. But then again, you're a Texan, not an American.
In France we have the French and the Parisiennes (according to the French)
Ok Lighthouse you asked for it and I'll be cool.I can't speak for the Welsh,although I'm sure they prefer to be called Welsh. Being raised Scottish/Irish,I can say with certainty to not call either parent a Brit or British.My mom was raised in Glasgow and is a firm believer in home rule.Now my dad is from Leitrim(The West Of Ireland)and he'd probably rip anyones head off if he was called British.Technically,Scotland,England,Wales and Northern Ireland are the British Isles.And I don't mind being called a yank even though I was born in Missouri.
