An Icelandic Woman's Critique Of American Women

The Average American woman?? (HT

About a year ago an Icelandic woman living in America gave a stinging critique of American women that still holds true today. From

"Since moving here I have met too many women that are under the impression that they are pretty pretty princesses and as such should not have to do anything but get everything they want. It is their way or no way. They are rude, self righteous and believe they are entitled to everything.

They treat their men badly and barely care about their children. They grew up believing that their wedding day is the most important day in their lives and that their main focus throughout their life should be to find some guy that is supposed to grovel before them to marry.

Not all women are that way but a a great majority as I have seen. Many of my girl friends have infuriated me with their behavior and attitude towards their boyfriends/husbands, treating them like they were stupid and just plain being unreasonable cause they think that is ok and that is the way they should be. Why do you raise your children like that? Why do you continue to behave like that? Some women even acknowledge that how they are behaving is childish and rude but still do it because that "is just the way it is".

Obviously, I know all American women aren't like that, but based on observation and experience, the majority of them are. How many women do you know gave a marriage or nothing ultimatum to a man? How many articles have you come across that feature children dying while in the custody of a single mother? I've seen too many women, driven by their biological clocks, with only weddings and babies on their minds. Lastly, I see too many women with an attitude of entitlement.

Naturally some American girls cried foul, trying to reframe the post to say European or Icelandic women are superior, but the author responds to this too:

"Thank you all for the interesting and insightful comments. It seems people either give a resounding "yes" or a "up yours" :D Some people seem to have misunderstood my statement to mean that Icelandic women are perfect or European women are awesome, this is not so. We all have our faults. This post is about the attitude I continually seem to run into here in the US."

From my experience, many foreign women have said similar things about American women. This is why in most cases, foreign women are a better match for me and my crew.

Background Intel: IAmA Icelandic woman who has lived in the US for 15 years and I think that the majority of American women need a reality check.
