The funniest lines are as follows:
- “Condoleezza Rice released a coarse anti-Russian statement. This is because she is a single woman who has no children. She loses her reason because of her late single status. Nature takes it all.”
- “Condoleezza Rice is a very cruel, offended woman who lacks men’s attention. Releasing such stupid remarks gives her the feeling of being fulfilled. This is the only way for her to attract men’s attention.”
If this is what passes for thoughtful discourse about gender in Russia, it’s no wonder Russian women are willing to try their luck with the whole mail-order bride scheme.
In comparison to what they’re hearing at home, something like Fred Reed’s “By contrast foreign women are psychologically coherent. They are sexy because they are women and like being sexy, not as a Vaudeville act or marketing tool. Resentment is not their primary emotion. They love their children and regard raising them as a pleasure, not an imposition of which they are ashamed.” sounds practically feminist.
