Madonna’s quote represents me

Madonna once said: “I’m a gay man trapped in a woman’s body!”. I personally feel that way too. I am a straight female but I act and think like a man.

On the other hand you may actually mean it instead of trying to say something flamboyant to attract people’s attention.

I do mean it. Do I look/sound to you like the average woman out there? I don’t even remember when was the last time I went cloth shopping, for example.

The “may” was added as a linguistic decorator. I have no reason to doubt that you feel/are any different than you say you do.

And yes you sound like all greek tech related women (not necessarily geeks) I know – The “I feel so alien” part included.

Now that I see it carefully you can scrap the greek constraint. Face it Acide Burn from doesn’t exist.

I don’t feel very Greek, sorry. I love Greece, I love my family and friends there, but I have very little to do with the whole Greek idiocygracy and their syndrome of “greek lifestyle is the best in the world and Greeks know how to celebrate and live better than the stupid Europeans and Americans who only work-work-work”.

Apparently you have lost touch with the capitals (>50% of the population that is) and the few islands I keep contacts to. The mindset you speak of I have only seen in movies about Greece — maybe I’m too young. In fact I grew in a world where I kept hearing (and still hear) of superior German/American/Japanese ’systems’ and technologies, and how their hard work has earned them these.

Currently Greeks only bitch about their history.

Frankly I prefer what you describe than the miserable default opinion that everyone does it better than us. I’m rapidly growing sick of it.

You seem to be a romantic. I am a pragmatist. The point of the matter is, most countries DO it better than us and it’s important to acknowledge this, otherwise Greeks will never wake up and move forward.

For example, I was watching a documentary on some technological advances in USA in 1925. 80 years later, and Greece is not able to manufacture the same stuff all by themselves. They will have to either consult and recruit British or French engineers, or they will have to buy the whole solution from abroad. Except tomatoes, oranges and feta cheese, Greece produces nothing technologically important. And as a geek myself, this hurts me. Only Intracom does a few interesting things here and there.

Without really meaning to put a stereotype on them, I’ve figured out that several women that are on computers feel similarly like you. Some of them told me that. But to not generalize, there are exceptions of course..

As for the rest, well maybe in the big cities people are not as stupid as in province. I was raised in Thessaloniki and don’t have an idea how things were in your case. Though I have to agree, even in Thessaloniki stupidity still rules for some of the population. My personal favorite joke from such greeks is “San tis paralies tis Xalkidikhs, den yparxoun puthena ston kosmo!!!” =)

p.s. Thanks for the comments in my blog. I have wondered about depression several times in the past. I will try to reply more in detail to this one later on my blog, perhaps today at night.. (Till Friday, I will be more busy than ever because I have to prepare a presentation for my studies ;P)
