I like how sweden just decided one day that gender is fucking bullshit so they got a gender neutral pronoun and stopped separating boy clothes and girl clothes and have pictures of spiderman pushing a baby stroller in a toy magazine why isn’t every country like sweden
you push that stroller sassy spiderman!
you fight those bad guys girlfriend!
you style that hair lil’ dude!
God bless Sweden!
in norway we don’t say “i love you” we say “jeg elsker deg” which translates to “i love you” i think that’s very beautiful
In Portugal we don’t say I love you, we say tens uns olhos tão lindos que eu fodia-te essa cona toda, which roughly translates to my heart belongs to you.
Faltava um para o português.

A couple of friends of mine who are Spanish sociologists were over for dinner the other night and they were talking about the time [they] spent in Portugal. The most striking characteristic (to their minds) was how the Portuguese have an incredibly strong tie [to] their history – namely their long-defunct empire. Numerous anecdotes, such as the Weather Reporter who after giving the forecast in the Azores and Cape Verde always says, and now the forecast on the “Continent” – referring to Portugal. Their TV is rife with documentaries talking about their glorious past, you can never have a conversation with a native without somehow turning to historical battles won by the Portuguese, how Portugal extended its global empire, etc.
Think of in these terms: You in Portugal: ‘Please pass the salt’; Random Portuguese: ‘That reminds me of the famous battle of Carrimbe, where the brave Portuguese fleet defeated the Dutch and won Macau.’ You get the picture.
They also said the Portuguese are extremely proper in how they speak to people and generally very polite. An old world charm, so to speak.
Oh, and they hate the Spanish, who as a whole tend to be quite a bit louder and ruder than the Portuguese.
