With accents, do perceptions vary by gender?

Asked by Imadethisupwithnoforethought (14664points) January 28th, 2012

I was discussing with a female jelly different accents today, and it occurred to me I had skewed gender/accent stereotypes.

Do you have different gender associations for the same accent? For example, do you think of women with a southern accent as friendly southern bells, while men with southern accents as hillbillies? If you examine your own private assumptions, does it break based on genitals?
