Anonymous said: Are you Irish-American?
This being Tumblr, I feel like if I say no, you’re going to tell me that I’ve acted in a culturally insensitive way to Irish-Americans since I’m not Irish-American. (Relax people, I’m just teasing. I actually love the social justice and cultural education scene and on here, it’s a big part of why I stick around. Don’t send me hate mail.)
Anyway, I don’t really consider myself anything-American, tbh, just American. My father’s maternal grandfather was Irish (not sure if he was first or second generation though), and he married a Native American woman, so not a whole lot of Irish tradition/pride passed down through that line. My other ancestors (with the exception of my maternal grandfather, who immigrated here from Belgium when WW2 broke out) came over from England in the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries. Not too exciting, huh.
