    Despite being American, I’ve found most of my compatriots that I’ve encountered while abroad to be perfectly fine. I don’t go out of my way to interact with them most of the time, but I’ve met far more cool people than Ugly American stereotypes. I met a few Yanks in Southeast Asia who were surprisingly ignorant, but they were also good-natured and friendly, rather than aggressively or arrogantly dim. I think we’re generally at least a bit better than our reputation, although I concede that it only takes a few really vivid examples of the stereotypes to keep them alive.

      Why are Americans so incapable of criticism and go into full cope mode whenever the slightest criticism of their country arises on this board?

        Are you accusing me of being in “full cope mode?” I wasn’t even responding to criticism, just describing my experiences. I’ve met fewer Ugly American stereotypes around the world than I have generally likable, sometimes even cool, people. But I never denied that there are stereotypical Yanks out there.

      Everywhere I've gone in Asia the Americans were loved by locals and, when met in person, were either charming dipshits or regular dudes
      I have yet to meet an uncool british dude in SEA (I'm sure they exist) and I have yet to meet a non-c**ty british woman

      Ok so I’m American and I don’t understand the stereotype that Americans are loud and obnoxious.

      I myself behave similarly to how an Asian person behaves. I’m polite, considerate, and never loud. The Americans that I’ve encountered abroad are also not loud or obnoxious. Now there ARE Americans who are like that but they’re usually not coastal, educated Americans. They’re 80 IQ morons from the south or middle of the country. You morons need to differentiate between coastal Americans and middle Americans

      That being said, almost every Anglo person I’ve encountered abroad has been obnoxious, loud, and aggressive especially when they’re drunk. The milder of all of them has been Australians in my experience. But British and Irish people are just American blacks with white skin. I don’t care what anyone says. Clearly it’s some kind of cultural thing.

      I’ve had completely rational and sensible discussions with Europeans about gun control and i ultimate say “I acknowledge the level of gun violence, but I trade that for the preservation of the right to own a gun as a safeguard against a tyrannical government,” and because it’s said and discussed in a levelheaded way they don’t argue about that statement

        I don't think its generally a geographic thing, I think its a personality thing. I have met very nice and courteous Americans, who are usually more introverted and 'bookish'.
        Its the outgoing party animal types who act like moron frat boys/sorority girls that annoy the frick out of everyone. To a point you can't hate them entirely because they're usually just trying to have fun, but they're just blind to how fricking annoying they are.

          yes, I think it's upbringing.

          Chinese are super rude and selfish because they've been raised to put themselves first and make mom and dad proud (particularly people born under the single child rule).

          Israelis have been raised to think they're superior to everyone else, Indians and Arabs kept aborting female babies, so now you have all these angry, loud, rapey dudes fighting for attention.

          Europeans and Americans are generally just bad parenting and role models. Almost all famous people are insufferable, yet they're rewarded and revered by most of society. So some kids think that being loud and obnoxious is just what it takes to be successful, not helped by the rise of culture that glamorizes criminals.

        The stereotype is largely dead outside those stationed in the military abroad or legit boomers. Anyone under the age of 40 and not from LA knows this stereotype and tries their damnest to avoid it.

        You responded to the gun discussion completely wrong. You say, yes, I know we have a gun violence problem, but it's really a black problem. Just like how you Brita don't have a knife crime problem, you have an African and Arab problem. If they have a problem with that then they aren't a serious person and aren't worth discussing politics with.

      Kek provinciaux tourists in Asia are the worst, they usually look like ugly goblins and probably just came straight out of their government subsidized flat and can only spout inanities (It's much worse in Thailand though).

      It's that or groups of 30-something manlet lamers on the most stereotypical trip ever constantly arguing about everything.

      I guess we don't really see these people back in France because we have too much social capital to be around them? Doesn't help that every other French is a weeb too.
      It just makes me hate having to relinquish my euroshekels to poor morons even more.

          I know this is a boomer thing more generally, but they are almost like the American stereotype. Arrogant, dismissive of differences as inherently inferior, condescending, assume everyone being friendly is trying to scam them (even other white tourists) and just generally cold and rude. I always wonder why the frick they even travel at all since they seem to just hate everything foreign.

        I've have the worst exp with people mid/late 20's to mid 30's. EVERY. SINGLE. FRENCH. Like every single one of them starts off small talk after hello's with Trump/Guns/Healthcare/Ukrainewar/pol_tier_low_bait.

        I just don't fricking get it I don't go "lmao yeah dude how about Paris so safe right? why's crime up 300% and across the country at least doubled? What could be the issue? Also how's that africa situation treating you? Glad you guys didn't build extremely expensive tanks and ground equipment you can't transport to a suppressed nation for your puppet officials".

        I actually tried to help some lost tourists last time I was in asia, it blew up in my face because I used google translate and maps(they didn't have cell data) because I didn't speak it to them I guess that was a major insult. Sorry I should have spoken the language of your lovely immigrants OOGA BOOGA NOOGA DA WEY OOOO AHAHHA! I watched them for a good 15 minutes since was just drinking a beer to my amazement they walk into some french shop across the street, presumably ask directions, walk out clearly without an answer, and head the wrong way.

        It depends on what type of French. Young travellers of nafri origin are usually the most insufferable and inconsiderate people you could ever meet in a hostel.

      I'm pretty sure that's how it was. I feel like in general it's not the americans by itself, but shitty people who tend to travel more. Anyone form idk some flyover state seems perfectly fine behaved while californian influencer types or suburban familiys are shit. But the nice ones don't travel as much.

      It's funny how rude french tourists are while if you meet them because of work they are fine.

    Nah, everyone makes Australians out to be morons but I never go to moron destinations like Kuta or Phuket. When I do meet them in other places they are fine, but make me feel considerably less exotic than when I'm the only one from my country.

    Europoors fall apart the moment you give them some actual banter back. Don't take them seriously, they are moronic peasants who style themselves as sophisticated because they have 50% of their meager income stolen by their government to pay for freshly imported Black folk.

    Well technically the neighbors think bad of us because of immigrants jumping the borders to find work, but most people from 3 countries away or long don't even know my country exists.
