I was going to call this thread 'how sexist is the men in your country' but really the women are just as bad.
Compared to Europe my country is like a remake of 'Stepford Wives'.

I agree there sexist men in Australia. But really it is everywhere you go and there is not much that you can do about no matter what it will always be there.

And I do agree that women are just as bad sometimes.

I don't know about "sexist", but judging from the time I spent in Italy, it seems that many Italian men are into the traditional husband/wife roles and prefer their wives to be homemakers.

My country is the sexiest, no way I loose on this one.

The traditional dress for girls is herb grass for the skirt, half coconut for the bra and flowers , a lot of flowers
The traditional dress for guys is grass herb for the skirt, and again a lot of flowers.

Tho I dont wear it in Europe. Will be funny to see the look of the guys on the street.

Did you used to live in Mount Druitt?

Holland is all right; lots of covert sexist feelings towards women, but nothing that shows too much in everyday culture.

But... Argentina, THAT's an interesting story. I should be careful since I might lack sufficient cultural background, but I travel there often, and everytime again I'm shocked by how men and women interact, especially in courting.

In my male (sexist?) analysis, it's the WOMEN that keep Argentine machismo alive, by silently expecting men to behave like testosteron-driven jerks; I see mothers implicitly teaching their little boys, girls telling their boyfriends to be macho, while no-one, men nor women, seems to enjoy the machismo!

Would be interesting if some Argentines join this discussion!
