Feminism loves heavy state subsidization like mold loves moisture, so it’s no wonder that in the world’s most extreme welfare states like the Scandinavian countries Denmark, Norway, and particularly Sweden, feminism is stronger than in any other places in the world.
But is a staunchly feminist country the best place for women? Women certainly seem to like it, though according to some that might be because the question of whether they enjoy feminisms larger consequences is too much of a logical leap to be within reach of her rationalization hamster wheel:
The environment in Sweden produces women who are … deeply narcissistic and chronically unhappy.
No doubt there are some aspects of equality in Scandinavian countries that women there may not enjoy. Men for example treat them equally, exactly how a man would treat any other man … meaning roughly.
Swedish men speak to Swedish women in ways which would be considered very unacceptable in other places outside of Sweden.
But there are also aspects the women certainly do enjoy. Like (at least according to some comments) the heavy government subsidization of their life choices by men:
Economy wise: Swedish men pay on average 55% more taxes than females, but the average pay of men is NOT 55% higher. In fact, it’s statistically been proven, that all things being equal other than gender, there is no difference between male and female earnings here.
Most of the social care payouts go to females, and the general child care payout goes to females by default, not to both parents.
To say this feminist sociopolitical climate is disincentivizing is as much of an understatement as saying a bloody mauling and partial consumption of a tourist by a polar bear does not encourage pleasure hiking in Svalbard.
The short answer is it quite bad for men and well liked by women as long as [you’re] not too ambitious … for men this is a nightmare. Many laws are highly anti male and remove accountability from women. Speech which is not politically correct can land you in jail and bar you from employment. Your children can also be taken if your politics are deemed as not politically correct. The press is heavily censored and full of feminist propaganda.
if you cohabit with a Swedish woman you will be lucky to get 4 or 5 years together (or even less) before she becomes bored with you and gets physically attracted to someone else and just leaves. Plus that 4 or 5 years will be one long argument because the women here are so full of themselves, full of anger too, and they always think they’re right about everything. It’s no wonder the divorce/dump rate is so high here. And another aspect is that because both partners have to work like crazy all the time just to live because the taxes and cost of living are so high it is very difficult to have a quality relationship and the temptation to cheat on your partner becomes too high … There are plenty of foreigners who have come here to get together with a Swedish woman and then deeply regretted it.
No wonder Swedish males are opting out of reproduction in such proportions and birth rates of ethnic Swedes are so far below replacement level. Inevitably someone else has to pick up the slack and provide labor as well as replace the population. In that respect the feminist climate and it’s suppression of reproduction among the native population might partially be responsible for the heavy Islamic immigration and the negative impact associated with assimilating such a large influx of foreigners so quickly.
Some of reports of these negative impacts are astounding. Remarkably, there are stories of Muslim no-go zones where bands of young men enforce Sharia law and police are barred from entering for fear of their lives. Not that you could blame the Muslims for stopping the feminist plague from entering their neighborhoods after seeing what it did to their host country. In fact you might applaud the efficacy with which they’re able to inoculate themselves. Because for all the fear mongering one thing is for sure: as a cultural containment Sharia law stops feminism cold.
But whether or not the reports of no-go zones are real or simply racist or xenophobic fear-mongering is difficult to tell. On one hand there is the heavily censored mainstream media. On the other there’s the unabashed bias of the radical right wing; the only ones who seem to have the balls to brave the enforced silence and highlight these issues. Any of these right wing activists might be the deeply principled and unbiased free thinkers they say they are, but with the sporadic, unedited, and poorly funded news coverage they can muster it’s hard to verify their accounts. Because by necessity they’re unpaid amateurs, those who disseminate right wing coverage likely would never be able to publish their material professionally for pay in the main stream media.
One of the reasons for this lack of response is a deliberate and pervasive censorship in the mainstream media, to conceal the full scale of the problem from the general public. However, I suspect that the most important reason has to do with the extreme anti-masculine strand of feminism that has permeated Scandinavia for decades
But whatever the truth, there are likely SOME serious issues with the integration of large migrant populations there. Growing reports point to increasing lack of safety for women. Feminism might actually have worked against women’s interests in this regard because after being bullied to the point of being legally obligated to have to sit down to pee, and being made a laughing stock of in front of men around the world, Swedish men are not in the position (or perhaps not inclined) to be the white knights who will come to their countrywomen’s aid.
The male protective instinct doesn’t take action because Scandinavian women have worked tirelessly to eradicate it, together with everything else that smacks of traditional masculinity. Because of this, feminism has greatly weakened Scandinavia.
Taking Sweden, which was recently called “the Saudi Arabia of feminism”, as a measure of whether feminism benefits women, the answer may also be no for the simple reason that women have become so feminist the men of their country not only are disinclined to protect them, but no longer want anything to do with them at all. While the website boycottamericanwomen.com has been loudly denigrating American women as “the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc” and has been advising men to look for partners abroad, Swedish men have been quietly going about doing exactly that in such great numbers the trend promises to transform the entire country within a few short generations.
Scandinavian women marry abroad too, but whether by choice or by the lack of willing participants from other countries willing to submit to them, they generally only marry men from other feminist Scandinavian countries.
When it comes to Norwegians marrying someone abroad certain trends have developed over the years. Currently most Norwegian women who marry from abroad marry from Sweden, Denmark and the UK. Most Norwegian men who marry from abroad marry women firstly from Thailand, secondly from Russia and thirdly from the Philippines.
Women from other countries of course are flocking to the rich and (they perceive) easily handled Scandinavian men.
The import brides have clear reasons for their marriage choice: Russian women marry Norwegian men because of the ‘Norwegianess’ – meaning that Norwegian men are more domesticated than Russian men therefore Russian women have less domestic responsibility and more ‘freedom’. South-east Asian woman marry Norwegian men because they want to up-grade their lifestyle and also use it as a means to support their family in Thailand.
Predictably Scandinavian feminists want to see an end to this practice of Scandinavian men taking foreign brides. Misandric laws make an ineffective choke collar for men who can just send a woman back to her home country if she becomes controlling, overbearing, or otherwise unpleasant.
Through this study an unfortunate trend has surfaced. Some of these marriages have turned out to be a very bad arrangement. By Norwegian law a foreign spouse may be sent back to their country if the marriage hasn’t lasted for more than three years.
But in the feminist’s eyes giving any power whatsoever back to men forced to pee sitting down is terribly unjust.
Some Norwegian men use this power to control their spouse. He threatens divorce, and in turn will send the import bride back to her home country, if she doesn’t do what the man wants or the marriage has problems. It is known that if the marriage is disagreeable in the eyes of the Norwegian man he will divorce his first import bride, sending her home, and then, I quote from the documentary: ‘they pick up a new younger wife from abroad if the marriage has conflicts’. Some of these import marriages trap women into a life of insecurity and service.
Particularly unjust, they feel, if the gentleman is older and offering his status and privilege to underprivileged foreign wives who give him their youth, beauty, and faithfulness in return.
An upsurge in marriages between older Swedish men and young, underprivileged foreign women raises serious questions about gender equality, according to a new report.
In a new ‘migration by marriage’ study, experts at the University of St Andrews found that over a fifteen year period there has been a 44% increase in young women moving to Sweden from mainly poorer nations to marry.
The study also found that the poorer the country of birth of the migrant woman, the bigger the age gap between her and her Swedish partner – a finding that experts say raises serious concerns over such women’s freedom of choice.
Swedish feminists may have to rush to insert a finger into this leaky dyke. Swedish men are now so keen on finding love abroad that Sweden may have the highest percentage of men with Thai wives in any country outside Thailand. But though feminists have not yet launched an all out assault, their rhetoric is beginning to sound like the beating of war drums:
According to ROKS, current regulations make it too easy for men to start relationships with foreign women and bring them to Sweden for the sole purpose of taking advantage of them.
So getting back to the question of whether women would really like to live in an überfeminist state where feminists have free reign to create:
… a vision of hell as dreamed up in the minds of the man-hating women who litter internet toilets like Feministing and who live in countries like Sweden, once proud nation of Viking warriors.
The answer seems to be that by the point things get this far men don’t care. It’s far easier for a western man to find a less unpleasant non-feminist foreign bride who will cook, clean, bear his children, and attend to his sexual needs, then get rid of her if she doesn’t, than to tire himself out with the exhaustive effort of trying to house train a snarling native feminist. Scandinavian men may have been over civilized by the feminist laws of their respective countries, which by all appearances have had the opposite effect on Scandinavian women who have become quite undomesticated. But the former rugged Vikings appear to have gotten accustomed to his modern luxury. And to a civilized man looking to enjoy the comforts of his home in peace, snarling undomesticated animals still belong outside.
