Hello neighbours,

I've been thinking for a while about changing enviroment a bit (moving), and Finland came up in my mind, since I love all the nordic countries, just like my own.

But then I realized that most of the comments I see on the internet (from finns) about swedes involve comments about how f*cking gay we are, how you hate us, and so on. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. I've also heard stories about swedes that have gotten beat up in Helsinki for speaking swedish.

So I was wondering, is this true? Do you really hate us?

Because we certainly don't hate finns, and I'm just interested in what reason so many finns have for hating us that much. Of course I've experienced this only on the internet and from rumours, and it's probably not like that if you actually visit your country, but it's sad nonetheless.

I also want to say that yes, people from some parts of Sweden (Stockholm) behave unreasonably gay, and I don't like them either. I don't look stereotypical swedish either, although I'm 100% swede, so maybe I'll blend in if I learn the language? I don't want to get assaulted, that's all.

It'd be cool if you would write some of your thoughts about this, if you think swedes are nice, or if you think I'm gay and so on, it doesn't matter, shoot!

Kiitos!

Hi!

This may came little late but I really wanted to answer this question

Just saying, I'm normal 16-years old girl from Finland.

Okay, so usually finnish guys joke something about Swedes, but I don't!! I actually love Sweden and Swedish. I enjoy learnig Swedish language.
It sounds great:) In fact I'm really embarrassed because of Finns. They say stupid things about swedish, and I cant stand that 'cause I think Swedes are very nice!

so, there's not just one answer for that question, but I introdused my visio.

I'm Japanese and have ever visited Finland. Yes, there are a lot of tourists from Sweden. Indeed, they might look arrogant in Finns eyes.

First of all, Finns have to learn an occupation history by Sweden when they learn their own history. You have a historical frustration and an inferiority complex for sure.

Second, Swedes talk to Finns in English or SWEDISH. On the other hand, Finns don't talk to Swedes in Finnish of course. How do you feel to face such an unfair situation?

Third, Finns call themselves Suomi. So why do they call themselves Finns in English? Because Swedes called them Finns and spread it from all over the world.

Forth, Swedes are a typical Germanic descendants and much tall like basketball players. On the other hand, Finns are something eastern blooded and not so tall. It's normal Finns would be shy.

Last, Finns have nothing to surpass Swedes except ice-hockey. That's why Finns don't hesitate to express their feelings when they watch ice-hockey. I think that is a real answer from Finns.

That sounds like a cheesy commentary if you ask me.
Sweden and Finland are both cool countries. Infact I like all Scandinavian countries. Keep it cool there pals. Love you all.

No, we don't hate you, both countries are known for making jokes of eachothers from time to time, but it's nothing serious.

Ainu, stop hiding behind proxy servers and use your real ip, thank you.

Forgot to say this: What you mentioned there are only rumours spread by some ignorant people, believe it or not but I've heard exactly same stories in here(that someone got beaten in Sweden for speaking Finnish) this just proves that someone has just made it up and spread that rumour.

Basically, the Finns try to behave smart for a benefit and hide their real feelings. It is good to live in a real life, but this is a forum on the internet. You should be honest when you face such a problem.

The Finns are frustrated with dilemmas as I mentioned in the previous comment for sure.

You try to behave smart or don't want to fight with Sweden for a benefit, so you just deny me.

Be honest.

When I ask Poles hate German, Poles say NO.
When I ask Finns hate Swedes, Finns say NO.

When I ask Korean hate Japanese, Korean say YES.
When I ask Chinese hate Japanese, Chinese say YES.

What's a mentally difference between European and Asian? Asian are honest, but European are not honest and why?

It's normal for human being to hate "invaders". But if you keep hating someone, your position looks lower. To overcome such a history, you have to show a "room" to be tie like European. So European hide their real feelings and try to behave smart somehow.

On the other hand, Asian don't have such a mentality. They just want to hate in order to calm down a historical frustration. Yes, Asian are mentally a kid. Compared to European, Asian don't care how their position looks.

Historically, Japan is isolated and we analize foreigners to protect our land. That's why Japan didn't fall down to the colony. Japanese never got a foreign provocation and never give a chance to be colonized because we always analize real feelings of foreigners like this.

The Finns will never agree with me here, but they actually agree with me in their heart deeply. This is human being.

I think finns dislike swedes because of the fact that in school every student has to study swedish. I personally think it is the only good reason for that question.

As Ainu, I met Sami living in Inari (the same name with Japanese), Finland. They were really conservative, but welcomed "brother" from the east.

Finland is a nordic country, but not a Scandinavian country. Finland is culturally different from Sweden, Denmark and Norway. Finnish culture is originated from the east for sure. Their language sounds like Japanese, and their pronounce of "aa", "ii", etc is common in Mongolia. In fact, they adopt Euro, not Krone like in Scandinavian countries. It means the Finns don't follow the other nordic countries and try to be a part of EU.

The Finns are N1 originated from the east, but definitely ignore it because of a white supremarcy. When I explained them, all Finns laughed and ignored me. I understood why Sami were really conservative. Yes, it is because Sami prevents Finns from being "European".

It's normal the Finns hate Swedes because both of them are different. But the Finns ignore their roots from the east and try to be a part of European.

Pathetic.

Many finnish people can't stand the swedish language, and the fact that we are FORCED to learn it in almost every degree of studying, it starts in middle school (3 years) then high school (3years) then in every university and many polytechnic schools it is compulsory, why? well swdish is finlands other national language, even though there are only approximately 5% swedish-speaking people here. And therefore every job that involves interacting with customers must speak svedish in order to get the job. So all people in finalnd basically are forced to speak a language which only 5% of the people use. Swedish as a school subject has the lowest average in grades, of all subjects.

Ainu and Sami are brothers and sisters. When I said such a thing in Finland, Finns just laughed and ignored me. So why did I say such a thing?

Because 1st Japanese are Jomon/Ainu originated from Lake Baikal, Siberia and Japanese speak Altaic language. Siberia has Japanese brothers and sisters "Saami" called by Russian. "Saami" means "self-eating" in Russian, and that's why they are called "Nenets" now.

Sami living in the nordic countries should be Nenets for sure. Before Slavic and Germanic occupied, there are common cultured people living in Siberia and nordic countries. Please compare with culture each other:

Nenets, Itelmen and Chukchi are living in Kamchatka and really close to us Ainu Japanese. If Sami are Nenets, Ainu and Sami are really brothers and sisters.

Nenets are samoyed.
The original saami descended from solutreans and had genetic similarities with berbers.
The contemporary saami are a mix of original saami, late paleolithic swiderian lapp and Perm-Volga lapp and early neolithic paleo-siberians and metal age samoyeds. Those early neolithic paleo-siberians and metal age samoyeds at their homeland were themselves heavily mixed with europoid finno-ugrics and even more so en route to Finland and Lapland. So the share of neolithic Asian genetic heritage among saamis and finns is rather small, almost non-existent among estonians. N1c managed to arrive before and largely without the neolithic (east-)asian (han) genetic baggage.

We are brothers from late paleolithic (50 - 10 000 years ago), sharing that brotherhood with amerindians and some other non-han groups.
