AITA because I don't want to share my Irish culture with my American classmates?

My (16F) family and I recently moved from Dublin, Ireland, to a small town in the South of the United States, a real "Bible Belt" town where it seems they don't get a lot of "foreigners" like myself and my family. I recently joined the local high school as a Sophomore, or 10th grade. It's been a bit of a learning experience and I'm trying to navigate the difference between here and home. To be honest, it was not my idea to move to America but my parents both have jobs that gave them better opportunities than Dublin was offering and they decided to move out here.

I don't like it here.

My classmates keep making this big to-do about my fucking accent, asking me stupid shit like "have you ever seen a lepurchan?" "do you all live in little stone cottages and wear buckle shoes", things like that, stereotypes of life in Ireland. Quite a few have asked me to quote the Lucky Charms bastard or that character from Austin Powers. It doesn't help that I look like an Irish stereotype; I've got red hair and pale skin and freckles and a thick accent. It's all so annoying. I don't like it here and I miss Ireland, miss my family, my nan and my cousins and all my friends. I had so many friends and now we're living in America we're all finding it hard to continue being friends because Ireland is hours ahead of where we live and its hard to maintain friendships over Insta and Facebook and all.

The school I'm attending has started having the physical classroom. One of my history classes this year has a focus on other cultures than just American, so we study different countries. My teacher didn't wait long to ask me to share about life "ion the far away land of Ireland". Thing is, I don't want to be some fucking show pony for these people. My culture, my country, is not some display to be touted out like this. We're real people, we have real lives, we're not stuck in the 1700s farming sheep and shit, we have cities and internet and health care, we're a fully evolved society. It isn't my job to teach her class.

Of course, I'm now seen as some kind of anti-social bully because I told the teacher plainly that I would not agree to her request. Now the school wants to have a sit-down with my parents and me because they "have concerns" about my well-being.

We have a student who moved here three years ago from Mexico but she didn't ask him to participate.

Am I really such an asshole because I don't want to be used as some kind of performance monkey because I'm from a different

It really annoys me when Americans say 'I COULD care less'

The saying is a British one, which is 'I COULDN'T care less'.

Which makes sense. If you couldn't care any less, means you care as little as is humanly possible. You can't care any less.

However, Americans say that they COULD care less but with the same intentions in using the phrase. If you COULD care less, surely that means you do actually care? Like, there is room to care less.

Dunno, just bugs the hell out of me.

Edit: Didn't expect this to blow up. Does this mean it's a popular or unpopular opinion?

EDIT: For all those asking why I'm picking on Americans here, it's genuinely because I only hear Americans do this and I never hear them say it the correct way. I'm sure there are other people around the world who say it incorrectly, however, I get the impression there is more of an acceptance of the incorrect phrase in the US. FYI I love the US, it's one of my favourite places to visit.

Gerard Butler is legitimately a phenomenal actor when he's not asked to attempt an American accent.

In Greenland, Butler keeps his Scottish accent and doesn't even attempt to try an American one, and his performance is all the better for it. It's basically a meme at this point but he has historically not been great at dropping the accent and trying to sound "American".

In Greenland he really shines as a result. Just a grizzled dude who happens to have a Scottish accent trying to save his family. I'll admit that historically I have been unsure of his talent, but it's clear to me now that he does actually have "the stuff" even if his role selection should limited.

β€œSomething is changing in this generation of Asian Americans. We are tired of being told that we don't experience racism, we are tired of being told to keep our heads down and not make trouble. We are tired of Asian American kids growing up and being asked where they're REALLY from, of having our eyes mocked, of being objectified as exotic or being told we're inherently unattractive. We are tired of the stereotypes in Hollywood affecting our psyche and limiting who we think we can be. We are tired of being invisible, of being mistaken for our colleague or told our struggles aren't as real.
