@chucker @LottieVixen @a_breakin_glass Yeah. It's a fascinating and not quite often enough used cut through 'white'. American culture has this anti-Catholic bias (largely classist); it's racist; it's tied into evangelical christianity yet distinct from it; It's a lot of where 'right' branches from 'alt-right'.
And it's one of the most clear-cut patriarchies, often. And it cuts a more clear path than 'white' sometimes around things like Judaism and around class and later-integrated whiteness.
And if you want to see WASP as a larger area, ask yoursellf "what is the culture of Connecticut?" That. That's WASP culture.
