Nearly all of the TV and YouTube that I consume in French is from Québec, or other parts of Canada. A handful of times, I've been told that I am supposed to mention that a sentence that I'm asking about originates from Québec.
I'm confused about this. Often, I don't know if it's even relevant that the sentence is from Québec or not. Additionally, I almost never see other questions on the site write "Please make your answers relevant to French spoken in [region]".
It feels strange to me to mention, in every question that I post, that the source text is from Québec, even when I suspect that it's not very relevant to the question. Am I supposed to be doing so, anyways?
If I investigate my uneasy feelings about always having to indicate that the source is from Québec, here's what comes to mind:
I remember some people responding with "This is bad/incorrect/lazy French" when really, it was a Canadian/Québecois regionalism. This happened with a question with "C'est correct", and a question where "rendre" was used with a meaning that seems to be not used in France. It also happened in a very mild (non-aggressive) way in a recent question where someone said that "s'enligner is probably s'aligner".
So, it seems that Québecois French will be automatically treated as "incorrect", unless I specifically state that the source is Québecois. If other people don't have to say "I'm in France" or "I'm in Lebanon" repeatedly in their posts, then I feel uneasy to say "This media is from Québec" in every question I write; I would feel uneasy, because it seems to be implying that European French is "correct" and thus needs no mention of country of origin in questions, whereas Québecois French is substandard.
However, perhaps I don't understand etiquette in the Francophonie? Perhaps European French is considered standard, and that its the responsibility of those outside of Europe to either speak European French on public websites, or to warn people beforehand that their speech might include non-European regionalisms (in order to prevent people from calling their French "incorrect")?
What is your opinion?
Should I be stating "This book/TV show/Youtube Channel is based in Québec" in every question that I write, even if I don't know if it's relevant, or if I only suspect that it's only relevant in a minor way (e.g. one or two words that might be regionalisms, but aren't the main focus of the question I'm asking)?
When people ask questions like "How do I say [X] in French?", and if they are outside of Europe, should they always be stating their location in their questions (ie so the answers are relevant for the French spoken in their location) ?
Am I correct to feel uneasy that I'm implying disrespect to Québecois/Canadian French, if I'm expected to state location of origin for every question, when other questions need not do so? Or am I feeling uneasy for no good reason, and that in reality, the benefits would outweigh the drawbacks?
