First I can't believe I actually read through all the pages of this topic. To rip it back on topic though as the obvious derailment of macking above indicates I do have a few thoughts on this subject. For starters generalizing American women, or even Americans for that matter, as stated in the quote above is narrowminded at best. I'd would dare say it's about as narrow minded as some Americans thought about what Czech is like. There are some here that think and believe Czech is slightly above a third world country in the grand scheme of things. They believe technologicaly it is a challanged country. Medically in the dark ages. Socially inept. And most erronously have no real contribution to the world. There are some here that even have general misconceptions about Czech women as well. Some think they are large, stocky, well built mules good for nothing but hard labor. Some think they are looser than a $2 whore on Ladies Night in the local bar. Other still assume for lack of a better compairison feel they look like wrestlers with long hair. Obviously, as many can attest here that is not the case in either misconceptions. I found Czech to be a very lovely place to not only visit but to live as well. I also found the women to be very soothing and pleasing to the eye. My own wife, a Czech national, I consider quite lovely making me the luckiest man alive. I often joke that she's as tough as a mule and twice as strong. That is a fact. For the most part she can carry ten times the load of an American girl. That doens't mean however, that all Czech women can outwork all American women. That also in no way implies that Czech women are all better looking than American women. I can also tell you my wife's sister, also a Czech national, often times fits the above quote to a t. Ironically, she isn't American so it sort of blows that generalization all to hell. Personally, My wifes father wasn't all that excited when he found out his oldest daughter wanted to marry an American. You see he also had a few misconceptions about American me. Thank God he was at least open minded enough to give me a chance and get to know me. After he talked (translated) with me and spent some time finding out my interests he quickly found out most of them were untrue and unfounded. He found out I was from Texas initally. This brought forth a flurry of skeewed ideas and foggy thoughts fueled by the worst form of entertainment America had to offer. Television shows like "Dallas" and "Walker, Texas Ranger" as well as a few of our national leaders gave him what he thought was accurate information to form an opinion of me. After he got to know me though he found out I didn't neccesarily agree with everything our national leaders do or say. He found that I don't have an oil well in the back yard, a 4 foot tall truck out front, and a hound dog on a chain. And also saw that I didn't have an attitude as big as Texas. Instead, he found an open minded, Mustang driving, Czech beer loving, cat owning, normal all around guy. Generalizations like the quote above are the reason why many people have the problems they do with others. It's part of the reason why national leaders have the peoblems they do with other nations. Perhaps if they put as much time into actually getting to know people and not ASSuming things about folks that they put into holding their misguided conceptions about people the world would be amuch better place.
