    I don't really disagree, however if an Ulster Scot/Scots-Irish or Anglo-Irish person identifies as Irish I wouldn't care to correct them. It's not one bit as irksome as a non-White being called Irish for example, which they commonly are nowadays it seems.

    If they were from the United Kingdom and identify as British, they are fully British. British isn't a singular ethnicity like Irish.

    I agree that it's nowhere near as bad as nonwhites being called Irish.

    As long as they have some British ancestry. I wouldn't consider someone born in the UK with 4 Irish Catholic grandparents to be British. I would consider them to be Irish.

    I just don't consider being British or Irish necessarily mutually exclusive. People like Eamonn Holmes, Terry Wogan or Des Lynam I'd consider both. English or Irish would be mutually exclusive though, since English like Irish is a real ethnicity.

    All the losers I've met who think I'm not cool enough to be their friend and are actually missing out by excluding me hahahaha you know who you are snobby motherfuckers!! *I am not referring to any TA members with this so chill .

    Those who argue about useless things that just don't matter like how to pronounce "anime" lol or by what age are you a "failure" if you don't drive a car stop talking about this shit.

    Also I hate those who assume all white women grew up rich and are lazy, dumb, and super entitled and if they aren't rich or have the "American Dream" well then they must be lazy and immature nope if you assume that you are yourself and you are the problem!

    Also the overemphasis on consumerism ugh.

    Also people who deny that looks matter, yet they only include conventionally attractive people in their social circle.
    =(^.^)=

    Also I don't do classifications currently, sorry.

    I use "British" to include English, Scottish, Ulster Scottish, and Welsh. It's faster that way.

    We're like 96.5% "British&Irish" on 23andMe. That just means Celtic to me (here come the pedants to correct me, which is a pet peeve).
