Why only weird? Let's keep Portland passive-aggressive too!

Portland was the first city to claim its weirdness. Others followed. That's right Austin, Texas - I am talking about you.


By 'weird' it is referring to Portland's idiosyncrasies that separate it from traits of other Oregon cities. Thought to be different from other cities in the use.

Often considered an original view it is sadly common in other cities of the U.S. Most towns have a certain amount of city pride that extends into a view that it should remain similar to its past. This is comically proven in media such as Christian Landers book, Things White People Like.

Other towns that share a similar identification as a haven for the eccentric and esoteric. Towns that are considered different from their parent state.

  • San Francisco, California
  • Silver City, New Mexico
  • Bisbee, Arizona
  • Austin, Texas
  • Baton Rouge, Louisiana
  • Deland, Florida
  • Savanna, Georgia
  • Staten Island, New York
  • Ann Arbor, Michigan
