    I spent alot of my childhood in nature, catching lizzards, snakes and other animals.

    At home I spent my time with Lego.

    To be realistic they need mild acne barbie with a smaller bust size with some body hair stubble (for winter edition Barbie) and wider hips.

    Barbie also needs to have the ability to get pregnant and contract herpes from Ken in order to encourage safe sex as well.

    It's always been this way. Even the Viking women were independent and strong... the men would go sailing off somewhere, the women would have to run the country while the men were plundering some English village.

    Also, religion never really took hold in Sweden. That might have something to do with it as well. Honestly though, I'm not really sure why it is the way it is, I just know that in Sweden, you're really not supposed to think about women and men as having different gender roles. Just like you will see women who do all the jobs that men do (and you see this in America now as well), you will also see a lot of men in Sweden who are nannies, who are nurses, teachers, chefs, maids, all the typical female jobs in America.

    America I think has progressed to a point where women can play male roles, even though in some ways this isn't complete. However, men still hold firmly to their gender role in the USA, which is less the case in Sweden.

    American men see Swedish men as sissies, Swedish men see American men as trying too hard and being insecure in their manhood. Really it's just two different cultures.


    Why do you think things are this way? Interested to hear your thoughts as well.

    That's what kids should be doing. You never see kids outside anymore. Too bad. I was either out catching fish and frogs or playing sports most of the time. Inside there was legos and a little bit of Nintendo.

    I actualy spent most of my time outside, because my father was inside, and he was abusive.

    The historical basis for the Scandinavian countries make a great foundation for gender equality. The harshness of their lives made it necessary to have the great responsibilities and tasks for both genders. In a contrasting manner the much more bearable lives of the Mediterranean cultures gave the people there a lot more room to have certain social restrictions and expectations without causing detrimental harm to their society.

    This can be seen again as these countries began to industrialize. Sweden with a population today of only 10 million while countries such as Italy and Spain have around 40 to 60 million. Imagine the differences when these countries' populations were based more on their agrarian capabilities. Italy and Spain can afford to hold their genders in different lights, while the Scandinavian countries have much less to work with population wise. This along with their historical foundations have made these countries develop very different perceptions of what is appropriate.

    America although diverse is far to similar to the Mediterranean cultures. This is largely upon the nations once great traditional values stemming from religion and the arable landscape. Of course you can take into consideration the frontier women and the surges of the feminist movement during the early 20th century and during the 60's, but for the most part we still have a fairly "traditional" view of society.

    I think you are probably right. My favorite thing about America since I've moved here is how all ideas are welcome here. I think in Sweden, people are a bit uncomfortable with disagreement and tension. Americans love disagreement and tension, and in the realm of opinions and ideas, I think that's a very good thing.
