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?

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

If you consider strong not having much chance to get out of their kitchen and look for a proper and full time job if they want to... The mentality is changing but ever so slowly.

Coor really?

Compared to the rugby playing, beer drinking, business running women I met where I come from (New Zealand), I find those here to be quite quiet...
I guess it is all relative..

I'd say it's all relative; to what you are used to and where you come from. I'm sure others would say just the opposite.

If your avatar is any indication of where you come from, then yes you may be in for a culture shock.

Were these women also aware that they are lesbians? It might be your civic duty to tell them before they make a heterosexual faux pas.
