Have you seen the advert in the Netherlands playing on the fears of Dutch women and their promiscious husbands heading to Ukraine for the Euro 2012 championships to enjoy more than just football?
To say that it plays on stereotyping is an understatement, and I would not be surprised if this was partly funded by that racist bottle-blonde neo-nazi wannabe, Geert Wilders and his PVV party who are not just anti-muslim, but have extended their racism to include anyone from Eastern Europe. And painting a picture that all women from Eastern Europe, in particular Ukrainian women, are on the game, is just another example of the racist propaganda appearing across the Dutch media of late.
What they fail to realise is that if you walk down the narrow streets of the Red Light District, you’ll see as many Dutch women advertising their wares as women from everywhere else. So who are they trying to kid?
To be honest though, if Dutch women got their act together and stopped wearing skirts and trouser combo’s, stopped eating junk food all the time, actually put on a bit of make-up and learned how to wear high-heels and skirts from time to time whilst being a little more feminine and a lot less in your face, then maybe they wouldn’t have to worry about their mens wandering eyes. Sadly though, all a Dutch man has to look forward to instead is a beer machine at home. Maybe it’s to help him get in the mood so he can actually face his Dutch wife? <evil grin>
Afterall, I doubt the women of Spain, Italy or France have the same worries as their Dutch counterparts 🙂
