Now how do these two things go together?
It is all about the stereotypes:

1.Holding doors open for Dutch women will earn you scorn and contempt.

2. Dutch women like to hunt in packs. If several men are together, Dutch women, through a series of shouting, rudeness, and intimidation, will eventually home in on the man most likely to carry their shopping bags for them at Albert Heijn in the near future. They’ll persist until their chosen victim has turned into a lump of quivering jelly. What you need to know is that as an expat, if you stand your ground in face of the ugg booted onslaught, that Dutch women will forgive you and may even find your self-confidence attractive. From Dutch men they expect total acquiescence, and the ability to follow orders.

So basically, just like women everywhere else...

Stereotypes? I call that generalising. Don't know where in Holland you're from (probably not a big city), but that's def not the case where I am from (Amsterdam).

Being Dutch, I can unfortunately confirm this and have seen many similar cases, even though it is a stereotype and the post is a bit exaggerated. Perhaps this is the reason that my wife is not Dutch

Not me- I was a female version of the lone wolf. However, when out with other females they have my undivided attention.

Ah, yes, sure, you are so right , schatje, I have to confess, I am from a village, the locals called Amsterdam

Everything above about the dutch ladies was written by the expat guys, this is exactly the way how they see us
