Sweden slammed for ‘sexist’ street signs

Thousands of streets in Sweden are named after people, but new figures suggest only 14 percent refer to women, despite the country’s reputation for gender equality.

If you’re strolling around one of Sweden’s cities, it won’t take you long to stumble upon a street referencing a typically Swedish name. Central Stockholm and Gothenburg both have 150 ‘name’ streets each, while Malmö has around 80.

This week, Statistics Sweden (SCB) has revealed that across the country, 2,060 street names include a man’s name, while just 330 include a woman’s.

The Statistics Sweden study also found that roads named after men tended to be longer than those named after women. The average ‘male’ street is 450 metres long, while ‘female’ roads come in at an average of 380 metres…


Talk about rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. The same feminists that are complaining about street names are solidly in favour of mass immigration, a great deal of it Muslim, and no, they have no problem with that.

      They’re also Muslim enablers. Like all the left.

        Cultural Marxist have made Muslims ‘officially designated victims’…ODVs cannot do anything wrong, because they are ‘acting out’ their ‘revolutionary indignation’ against the neo-colonialists.
        Nevertheless, Muslims are REAL COLONIALISTS and their jihad is being ignored.

      That story is appalling. Maybe Russia will actually take the country.

      The armed forces agreed to emasculate the lion after a group of women from the rapid reaction force lodged a complaint to the European Court of Justice, Göteborgs-Posten reports.

      But although the army was eventually happy to make the changes in the interests of gender equality, the artist who designed the insignia was less than pleased.

      “A heraldic lion is a powerful and stately figure with its genitalia intact and I cannot approve an edited image,” Vladimir A Sagerlund from the National Archives told Göteborgs-Posten.

      Sagerlund blasted the army for making changes to the coat of arms without his permission.

        Yes, “appalling” is a very good word for it.

    Street names! Yep! Forget the 25% of Swedish women that are raped by ‘immigrants’ (read: Muslimes).

    Sexist! What about the racism?

    Shouldn’t there be Somali names, and arabic ones too? Not to have names like those in all Swedish citys and towns must be racist! sarc

    Sweden will soon criminalize high heels and skirts. You DO know that, yes?
