Rural Australians are crude

Film at 11.

Err, no, really, two blonde Finnish birds turn up to work at a pub in Coolgardie, a now bust mining town, and they find that the local men are less than polished and urbane.

And they made a film about it.

  1. I have no experience of rural Australia but many of the urban Aussies I have come across are the sort of dripping-wet, hand-wringing ‘liberal’ wankers that the Graun ought to love.

  2. I’m sure they found some crude blokes. I’m also sure they didn’t get raped. Which if they were in the nice urban west of Sydney would have been quite possible. As our beloved former Grand Mufti would say, you can’t blame the cat for going after uncovered meat.

    “I’ve been thinking about the reasons for their behaviour. Maybe they were showing off, or scared of being hurt,”

    They were hoping for a shag. You got to say no. Good luck with that one in some of the more civilised parts of Australia.

    What she is referring to, revealed in the documentary’s final moments, is best left for viewers to discover themselves.

    Ooh, it’s an ad! Go and see the movie, we promise you it’s shocking.

  3. many of the urban Aussies I have come across are the sort of dripping-wet, hand-wringing ‘liberal’ wankers

    Yeah. They’re the kind who ‘travel’ while ‘finding themselves’. Unfortunately we can’t bar their return.

  4. I’m not clear why jokey (or slightly pathetic) attempts to get a shag are sexist.

    Also, if the worst ‘racism’ they encountered was ‘don’t you eat seals and shit?’ then these women should congratulate themselves on their sheltered, privileged lives.

    Also, nasty primitive rural Australia gave them jobs. In Thailand, they got robbed but that’s not worthy of comment.

    Bali is in Indonesia, but I see your point. I went to Bali for the first time recently and you would have to work at it to get robbed there. Constantly solicited for taxi fares, guides, etc, sure, but robbed? Unlikely.

    And I didn’t get the racism claim either. Hitting on bond white chicks is racist now?

  6. rural Australians are heterosexual!

    Well, yes, they only screw ewes not rams.

    And they leave the lambs alone because that would be beastiapeodoliphila, and that would be un-Australian 🙂

  7. It’s all part of the Cult-Marx assault on ‘toxic masculinity’. Quite revealing that they now have to go to the back of beyond in quest of it.

    I’d rate neither of those birds no higher than a 4, which might explain why they’re producing propaganda rather than sunning themselves on a billionaire’s yacht. Still, your average ‘feminist’ is a 2 at best, and some of them venture deep into negative terriitory, like the benthic Triggly Puff.

  8. “I suspect Rural anywheres are crude by city standards.”

    Generally, rural Britain is a lot less crude, more civilised and safer than the urban areas – particularly those with enriching vibrants.

  9. “I have no experience of rural Australia”: I have only a little. We once stayed overnight in the accommodation at a very, very rural power station. At breakfast in the canteen we noticed that all the men had provincial English accents. We enquired – it was true. Rural Aussies didn’t have the required skills so the immigrants did the work. Their children, of course, would end up as the usual suburban Aussies in the State capital.

  10. I visited Coolgardie years ago in my beard and rucksack phase. It was like something out of the Wild West.

    For an extra two bucks, the barmaids would take an ice cube and give it a quick twizzle on their nips before putting them (the ice cubes!) in your drink. Great days, lovely people.

  11. ‘I was crying, and I was angry’: Hotel Coolgardie’s shocking portrait of sexism in the outback

    It’s the crying and the anger that convinced me feminists are right.

  12. If it shows on TV I will watch it. It sounds like a laugh. Surely the whole or main point of overseas travel – particularly on the cheap – is to experience differences including those between cultures and societies, which is what they got?

  13. “Racism”

    The Guardian have dropped a bollock there, claiming racism against whites. By whites too, which is fucking weird.

    But, the Guardian.

  14. When Britons wind up in Spain and don’t adapt to the local culture, it is because they are appalling people. When Finns end up in Australia and the locals don’t adapt to Finnish culture it is because they are appalling people.

    Have I got this right?

  15. “For an extra two bucks, the barmaids would take an ice cube and give it a quick twizzle on their nips”

    Sod the Finns, does no-one care about the Japanese?
