Eeesh: Dirty Scandi Men Feminized, Miserable

Come for the delicious anti-Scandism, stay for the alarming results of determined desexualization/resexualization of men.

The article Dr. Helen is citing seems to be some kind of women's magazine, so in all likelihood it's hyped-up and overstated as to the trends it claims to discover. Still, there's gotta be something here.

The author, Elizabeth Debold, sets out to Scandinavia to find out how "gender equality" is playing itself out in that culture. She starts out the article describing how in Sweden, for a man to pee standing up is increasingly considered to be "the height of vulgarity and possibly suggestive of violence." Debold seems surprised to find out that gender equality is not all it's cracked up to be, especially when she discovers that the new equality is nothing more than "patriarchy in drag."


A guy named Bo states, "We end up relating to women in a way that is more like woman to woman, not man to woman. We are feminized in our relationships, and they don't last."

There is constant fear in the men there that they are always doing something wrong, and who can blame them? They are told that they are somehow guilty of oppressing women from a young age. In Sweden, little boys are given dolls to play with and girls are given tractors. Pupils in Demark are sent to do traditional women's jobs because of an "equality" project. All of this indoctrination and brainwashing is, in my opinion, sick and abusive.

Orwellian. Or Bjorwellian, I guess.

Thanks to Suzy, or maybe Joe.
