Polish girl comments to me about the UK 'ladette' culture

Post by mattyman » July 11th, 2014, 11:50 am

Thought you guys would be interested to know something about lasts night, where I got talking to this girl from Poland at my local couch surfing meet-up.

During the long conversation, after sharing experiences of work and travel, she brought-up the fact that when she first went out in the UK, she was shocked to see young women getting drunk, vomiting, being aggressive and everything, and also mentioned that she'd feel ashamed if she found she behaved like that.

She mentioned that there was one time where she almost got drunk, and told me how she would feel 'Oh my God! What have I done!'. She told me openly that in Poland, for a woman to get drunk and aggressive, it's still viewed as shameful. She seemed to like the fact that getting drunk is very unfeminine and also, the other guy next to me commented that he finds ladette-type behaviour unattractive. She also brought up the fact that there are MANY girls here that have absolutely no shame in behaving in that disgusting manner.

I know that one of the biggest complaints about English women is this, the drunkenness, the ladette behaviour. The whole drinking as much as you can, as fast at you can thing, regardless.

As for this girl, I got the impression that she strongly disapproved of this mentality. She was very much of the attitude that it's shameful for a woman, not so for a man.

Btw, apart from that topic she brought-up, she was very friendly, warm and gregarious company to be around, had many interesting experiences to share and generally felt like being on a similar wavelength to me. Was also quite a good looker too :-). She gave me her number and added me on FB before I left, mentioned that she was free, was asking me what I'm up to on the weekend :-).

Anyway, I thought I'd share this little observation with you all as evidence that the whole ladette culture is looked-down upon and seen as unfeminine.
