The end of sex in Sweden

It’s the end of the world as we know it once again. This time has nothing to do with the Aztek calendar. It’s not some made up fantasy. This time it is serious. Sweden has decided to eliminate sex.

It was always strange to me growing up that Sweden (the home of my father’s forebears) epitomized sex during my formative years. The closest I got to this seathing hotbed of Swedish sexuality was movies. American movies only suggested that there was something called sex. If you wanted to know more, it took a trip to the ‘art’ theater where the topic was flaunted in European films particularly Swedish ones like Wild Strawberries and I am curious yellow. Sweden was known for sexy women like Anita Eckberg and it was every teenaged boy’s dream that his parents would engage a Swedish au pair to watch his younger siblings.

That was then but apparently all that is water under the bridge because Sweden has declared an end to sex. From now on no more male and female. No more he (hon) and she (han). From now on no matter what your sex you will be hen.  From now on, Swedish sex kittens will be unisex.  Where’s the fun with that?

  1. Things have really hit new lows when sex becomes gender-neutral.

  2. Hansi,
    We should have seen this coming what with the agenda for same sex marriage. What’s so special about women anyway? Anita Eckberg, Larry the Cable guy, whats the dif?

  3. Ouch! I haven’t heard about these news before, but this sounds to me a little bit disgusting and not natural. I don’t have problems with homosexuals, but I don’t think that genders would be discriminative…

  4. Julie,
    I’ve got no problem with homosexuals either. They seem to understand that men and women are different just like heterosexuals do. It’s those other silly folk that can’t seem to tell the difference.

  5. I like what you guys are up too. This kind of clever work and reporting! Keep up the excellent works guys I’ve added you guys to my personal blogroll.
