This was an interesting read, to say the least. I started counting off some of the things I’ve seen in college and could check off half your list from non-Australian men— especially the random ass naked moments (in this case it was to run into freezing cold lakes in zero-degree weather) and sex talk. You left me speechless regarding the snarky comments about Asian people in Asia though. I’ve heard some completely delusional comments about certain groups, most of which were unapologetic racism, but never experienced those who travel to a place to embarrass their hometown. I started off reading this because one of my favorite clients to work with lives in Australia. Now whether he’s Australian or just living in Australia, I have no idea. I just know he is my favorite one of them all. Outside of him, I have absolutely no other experience to go on. I do appreciate that you’re not laughing and egging this on.
