Perhaps I was indicating that cell phones are dangerous, or that it is dangerous to pass on-coming red cars.
I disagree with your premise.
I believe that when someone goes out of their way to point out little details such as gender and race, one is engaging in a form of bias which assumes that one's own culture is the predominant or norm against which the others may be judged. If an accent is cute, it is cute because it differs from our own.
And your wife is a lovely person, I am sure, but she is no Mark Twain, nor is Mothering on the same level as Huck Finn.
