Stop being such a little girl!

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: My experience in Denmark as a foreigner....

... Life everywhere is geared by choices, and since you've already given up by your attitude and gross paranoia, you have no chance. Yes, it's true... this government (and many, many danes who support it) is one of the most Xenophobic and racist and scared governments I've ever know, and yes, it's been bloody hard to "Integrate" here... but my version "Integrate" differs largely from the Bertel Haarder/Pia Kærsgaard version... I do things my way and I don't take crap from danes expecting me to do things their way because I have a right to maintain and live by my own culture, and this is exactly what I do. But one thing I have not done, is sit around and cry about the idiotic things that happen in this country as goes the racism/xenophobia. I simply get on with my life. I have a job because I worked bloody hard to get it, and it's at my qualification level. I have Danish friends, have a house, am involved in stuff, but integrated? No, I'm not, but I know what I need in order to make my life in this country work for me. Stop being a sissy.... if you move back home you'll probably cry there too.
