Bondi Beach Stories – Lesen & Entdecken
Sorry, today was supposed to be a fun-sun-private-holiday in Bondi blog, until walking down the hill rapidly changed my mood and mind. Sometimes it’s unfair that Germans cop prejudice and cliche. This time it’s well deserved thanks to our countrymen from Löwenbräu and their oh so imaginative PR campaign. What am I ranting about? Well, it’s big fat breasts stuck in your face wherever you look, plus the girl on the poster only has half a head. Why would she need a whole one? She’s got those balloons sticking out of her dirndl, right? I haven’t used the word sexist in a long time. Today I do and I’m disgusted about those poor brains at the beer company again inviting an easy shortcut: Bavarians, beer, breasts, vulgar, sexism. Thank you very much. And I’m not even close to being Bavarian.
Maybe I’m especially annoyed since a waitress at Bavarian Bier Cafe’s Bondi outlet explained to me why all her colleagues have their blouse buttons open all the time. So why do they? Because they have to. Those who don’t like pushing their breasts in every customer’s face can work elsewhere. Sorry, Bavarian beer fans, but I find that sexist too. And now, make mine a Whale Ale, please.
