Why do Spanish women look so miserable?

Angry Woman

It might be an outrageous claim, but it’s true. Feminism, like a drinkable water supply and fresh milk, reached Spain later than most, and consequently, hit like a tidal wave.

The Spanish are very good at picking up the ball and running with it; when they discover something (like the internet, or satellite TV) they very quickly adapt it into their way of life, and create succesful companies which often buy out the original British templates. But, with rampant feminism, the effect was nothing short of catastrophic. Almost overnight, the women became harder, meaner, and figuratively and literally, began to wear the trousers.

The result is great swathe of miserable, frowning, angry and downright rude women. They have faces like ” a bulldog chewing a wasp” – to borrow a quaint old British expression; scrunched up, truculent and bitter.

More seriously, the Spanish men, are turning from their own singularly scary women, and are seeking the more feminine and (currently) less confrontational East European variety who, thanks to the inefficacy of communism, are now in plentiful supply. One can’t help feeling the Senoritas have scored something of an own goal here.

But, every once in a while, the mask drops, one of them might laugh, or smile, at an innermost thought, and their faces are transformed. Let us hope this tide of negative emotion continues onward, out in to the Mediterranean, sweeping away the stern masks and steely resolve, and the Spanish women regain something of their femininity, for the sake of their suffering menfolk, who, I’m sure, spend their days yearning for that nanosecond smile.

As I expect a fatwah to be taken out on me by the entire Spanish female population, I shall now be moving to Chechnya and calling myself Shirley.

    Second, this woman is CLEARLY victim of domestic violence which is a serious issue that affects many house holds and ex-wives.

  5. Congla – you have to see the full thread of articles on this subject to understand the context. Although I posted an article called the above, I most certainly did not accompany it with this photograph. This was posted as an answer by one of our discussion group in the heat of the moment I think. I would never allude to their misery by portraying them as battered. I will however, continue to go on about miserable looking women! 🙂 The photo that I posted was of some angry looking harridan wagging a finger, you know, the sort of thing a good divorce can cure you of!

  6. It’s just the American culture. That’s the way they look at it here. But if you go to a spanish speaking country it tends to be more sociable. My mom is originally from mexico and I remember her saying that people are so boring here. She grew up in Monterrey, Mexico, and was born there, and I’ve been there many many times. last time I was there I was there 6 months.

  7. also, I meant I was born there (too). It depends on what kind of boring but all in all everything is the world everywhere. maybe it’s just people? It’s just you not the person that looks miserable. The answer is all in Jesus. Ellen White provides a lot of light on these things, and the bible is the authority

  8. Kevmoore: what in the world does Mexico have to do with this article? The Indian temperament is fundamentally different from the European temperament of the Spanish. Keep Mexico out please.

  19. I’m sorry, I am spanish, and no way women in Spain have such a horrible character. Unfortunately there is a little bit of everything here and there, but I rather be a macho but thin, than like all the fat and ignorant american women you might date! 😀
