That does not make me xenophobic, either.
I didn't say you were xenophobic. I was just pointing out that you may be in the minority in finding it ugly.
Just because aesthetics is a local standard (similar to assigning labels "left"/"right"), doesn't make it any less true
I don't follow this. Left and right are local phenomena?

Cageian. Not to be confused with Cajun.
Great, that helped.

He doesn't have an accent, just a very distinctive personal way of speaking, like Jimmy Stewart or John Wayne.
