Re: Swiss men weak, Swiss women strong, what's your take?

In Swiss families, I have the impression that the ones that decide family matters -or important matters of any kind- are women.

They are much more direct, taxative and authoritative.

I have also noticed that Swiss women tend to be less feminine. On the same note, I tend to perceive more lesbian women here.

Impressions?
What a load of bolox!

Re: Swiss men weak, Swiss women strong, what's your take?

Just wondering how many Swiss households the OP has spent time in.

...it's an impression he got. He didn't conduct a field study nor did he send off a questionaire to every Swiss household. You people need to relax.

Re: Swiss men weak, Swiss women strong, what's your take?

I think I sort of agree with the OP from the point of view that I have found the Swiss women that I have communicated with generally to have very strong personalities. I don't know if they are stronger than the men or not as many of the men I have met are not very combative when it comes to things but the women seem well capable of standing up for themselves.

I like it!!!

Maybe German-Swiss are that way, but definitely not that way here!

I think you are right, it's a northern issue.

They're avoiding their (dominant) female partners and searching solace on the intraweb innit?

Me, too.

Okay, yeah, I do find it a paradox myself. All statistics show that more women are homemakers in Switzerland compared to many other western countries, but the one I have interacted with are strong women, decisive, but in a motherly sort of way. I guess it's not a paradox after all.

I wouldn't count my chickens before they've hatched! This thread will die the death...

Why?

Because for starters it's not contraversial enough, and secondly because it's based on a seeping generalisation that can easily be proved wrong or simply rediculed by comments like "What a load of tosh!"

I suggest the title be changed to...

"Could it be that all swiss women are flaming homosexuals?"

The opening post would then elaborate on why this is the case by explaining that all foreigners who are otherwise considered Alpha males in their home countries, struggle to pick up chicks in this country! And the conclusion [another sweeping generalisation ] is.... (wait for it...)

ahh bolox I digress

I don't think so, but I would propose:

"Could it be that all Swiss women are raving nymphomaniacs?"

From my experience, this certainly seems to be the case!

He has an impression and I'm wondering what it's based on. Perhaps you need to chill.

You need to be a bit like Bernanke, by going the quantitative easing way
