    In some accents and dialects, “draws” is exactly what you get, so it’s not any more of a mispronunciation than “terlet” for “toilet” or any of thousands of other cases.

      The issue isn’t how it’s pronounced. The issue is how it’s then spelled based on embarrassing guesswork never corrected.

      And I blame the community for that. No one said “Marlon, what the fuck is a ‘terlet’, and did you pay attention when we were in school together?”

      You can pronounce the letters how your neighbourhood, region, cult or clique dictates; just write them correctly.
