Yea, lke I said, I didn't even hear that term until ealier this year. But I umm, didn't want to be the one to point it out, what it meant. Since I never heard it before this year, I didn't know the reaction I would have gotten from anyone French.
Well by being french I can help you understanding what would be our reaction if you called us like that .... you would be punched
More seriously , Frogs is a slang term , an insult english canadians use against us . This term was used for the ''first time'' after we lost the war and became under the juridiction of the british invaders . No one really knows why frog .... but it is quite insulting .
I don't know if you ever heard the term : '' Tête-carée '' or '' Square-Head '' ? It is our insult , mainly toward ontarians since they are the first english canadian colonies . They lived in the Upper Canada and we lived in the ( I don't know the term used in english to describe the two old separations of the Canada) Canada . But , since english canadians weren't happy that we had such a big territory left to us , that they lost their territories to Americans and that we were better treated then them the Loyalists , they started to live in our territory . They made townships , big squares separated in small squares , equal more or less to each others , it was different then our method ( again I don't know the term in english , sorry ) . Our method was to create long stripes of land near rivers , so everyone had an acces to the source of water since everyone had a part of the river at the end of his property . So '' Tête-carée '' or '' Square-Head '' refer to these different style of repartition of the land . Now it is not really used by us , mainly because there's no city made in the shape of a square anymore .
Wish it helped you to understand that we , french canadians , and you , english canadians have been hating each others for several centuries and that made some colorfull insults over the time
Yes I have the soul of a Patriot and that makes me a separatist .... not that I don't like the canada .... its only I don't like the english people in it .... :P
Before I get killed ... this was a joke uh
