    Default How tolerant of other cultures are you?

    Where do you draw the line? What offends you? What sort of behaviour canít you accept?

    I am tolerate to all cultures, except some strict middle east ones. I would not stand walking covered from the head up to the feet in a 40 C degrees land, covering my whole body because of a boring culture that women canīt dress normal.

    As tolerant as could be... however, I hate the current notion of 'culture'. It's just another method of dividing people into groups to label yourself a victim or label someone else an aggressor.

    If someone's nice they're nice, if they're a useless cuntrag they're a useless cuntrag. Tolerance should come down to the individual, not any group the masses want to lump them into.

    I hate it when the woman has to adore the man, and is in a lower position.

    It's not like I can't stand those people, they didnt make a choose to grow up there.

    I don't mind it much as long as the people who are in a lower position are used to that kind of life and actually want to live according to it. It's their choice.

    BUT

    When someone from a country where they discriminate let's say women comes to my country and looks down on me or offends me in any way, I don't aprove of that at all.

    I can accept most cultures (even though I might not like them) as long as they don't affect me personally in a negative way. And unless it's something utterly wrong such as the circumcision Vera mentioned.

    i believe that most traditions have/used to have a
    reason, and were actually of use.

    my problem is that i often dont understand or know
    the use of certain traditions. i dont want to judge
    until somebody/a book explains to me what is
    actually behind it... because i fear that if i judge
    without knowing a thing about a certain tradition of
    an unknown culture, i will be "unfair", and possibly
    closed minded.

    but i cant help prejudices sometimes...
    and then i judge without knowing the reason.

    i do not tolerate how some native african bush-people
    have wooden sticks "pierced" through their mouths/faces.
    i dont see how that is helpful to anybody. i dont see
    how that can possibly be of use for a little four year
    old girl. and when i imagine the pain she (or he) must
    have gone through during the procedure, i just wish
    they'd fucking leave it already.

    ...thats the only example i can think of right now.

    Not all middle easterns are muslims. I'm a catholic who doesn't go to church. Has everyone forgotten the babylonians?

    And when did the Babylonians exist again? Before the Ancient Greece? Around those days?

    Yeah.

    I don't really understand the tribe that stretches the women's necks with those huge metallic rings.
