Okay why the hell do people think French people are like 100% “sexually liberated” and have orgy every weekend?

Where the hell does this stereotype come from?

It comes mainly from the manners of the Parisian elites during the 18th century onward, it was somehow reflected in novels such as The Dangerous Liaisons by Choderlos de Laclos and other libertine novels.

This stereotype became really widespread at the Belle-Epoque: Parisians weren’t extremely sexually active but there wasn’t really any separation of gender in public spaces. Women and men could hang, and even gently flirt, together even if not married or related, something that was more frowned upon in more puritan countries like Britain or Germany. Because of this, foreign visitors - as Sigmund Freud, he spoke a lot about this in his letters -  often had this impression that Parisians were sexually promiscuous. Add the fact that both prostitution and homosexuality were allowed in France, resulting in famous underground business and counter-cultures, and you got this reputation.

And since both Foreigners and Parisians have a really hard time to remember that France isn’t Paris… We all got this image of perverts, even if there is a lot of conservatism about sex in France (see the anti-gay marriage demonstration last year). Even more, these stereotypes mainly came from how relationships between men and women were perceived. In fact, even in Paris, until the 60-70’ties, young girls weren’t allowed to go out unsupervised and both children born out of marriage and their mothers were rejected and vilified. Not a lot of differences with our neighbours…

And stereotypes last: before the D-Day, American officers thought that it was a good idea to motivate their soldiers using this stereotypes about our so-called “sexual promiscuity”.

[France is] a tremendous brothel inhabited by 40 million hedonists who spent all their time eating, drinking, making love and in general having a hell of a good time." - Life Magazine.

It resulted in more than 3,500 rapes… How women accused of having sleep with German military were treated after the Libération also speak a lot about how the French perceived sexual liberty back then…

it’s french friday today and the only ‘big’ things happening in france at the moment are:

  • france plays against germany tonight in the world cup
  • sarko is in custody

while i’m overjoyed at the last one, i can’t say the same about the first one

what the hell did he do

Influence peddling and corruption (amongst others)

This man is involved in so many shady affairs and yet is still like “Yeah, imma run for president again next time”. And people still support him? How?!

because our fellow countrymen are dumbasses that’s why

Omg and his little lapdogs, who are ready to follow him blindly because all they want is their tiny piece of power! “Boohoo, it’s a conspiracy”. I imagine it can’t feel nice to get caught after doing whatever you liked for years but at least have some freaking dignity and don’t go crying on TV about how it’s all unfair.

44, 6 millions d’électeurs pour l’hexagone, avec 56,85% abstentionnistes.

Ca fait 25,35 millions de gens qui sont allés voter aux Européennes en France.

25,35 Millions, dont 25,4% ont voté FN - Ca fait donc 6,5 millions de votes pour le parti bleu marine.

Pour mettre les choses en perspective, les podcasts de certains youtubeurs français ont plus de vues qu’il y a de gens qui ont voté pour le FN.
