What struck me watching the movie was that the male romantic lead was visibly shorter than the female lead. In Hollywood – or Bollywood – movies, the male actor is taller because he's supposed to be in charge, the dominant figure. He is a not a Frenchman who will pursue you to the ends of the earth. When I first moved to Denmark, I thought I'd stopped hearing whistles because I'd aged out of the whistle target group.
I'd say at least a couple of centimeters shorter, maybe an inch. He doesn't send flowers, he doesn't buy chocolates. But I've since established that beautiful young women don't get whistled at either. Now, I'm a modern woman, and I like a lot of things about these modern men.
If you're a feminist, a Danish man IS your dream man. Before the local government came to collect them, some people were sawing off bits for free firewood, or to make furniture, or other arts and crafts project.
To me it seems quite clear that he was just not the one interested in the whole project on collecting wood.If it was his girlfriends idea to collect wood why should he be the one doing sawing?The small, slender young woman was sawing away at this big tree with an old-fashioned manual saw, while her boyfriend was just standing there, smiling, with his hands in his pockets. Maybe he had a back injury – he was about 25, so maybe had a very youthful back injury. I don't see why feminists don't all just become lesbians and date one another.Maybe he was a professional hand model and couldn't risk his fingernails on a messy metal saw. [email protected] This (quite frankly, STUPID article) makes it seem like men who aren't Danish WON' T take your opinion seriously. From a gay man, this article is I don't get all the "genderisation" provided in the article.
I've asked my Danish male friends, and they say they're reacting to Danish women.On our street, there was a very large tree down, and as I was walking by that Saturday, I saw a young couple trying to take part of it home.
