Anonymous asked: I've just started college in Italy! Reasons to leave right now?

philsandifer:

It’s a country that repeatedly and knowingly elected Silvio Berlusconi to office? 

And, I mean, check if that high court ruling that declared that it can’t be rape if a woman is wearing tight jeans because she must have helped take them off ever got repealed. 

Or you can just sit and ponder how one peninsula managed to be the birthplace of the Roman Empire, the Catholic Church, organized crime, and fascism. 

And that’s before you get into the ghastly blend of machismo and conservatism that is Italian-American culture, or my irritation at things like the explicit and conscious perversion of justice to satisfy the media that is the Amanda Knox trial. 

Basically, because Italy is a horrible place full of horrible people.

Ooh, I forgot their chronic inability to stop making monkey chants at black footballers.

Basically, ask yourself what the last time you read a news story and thought, “oh, well done Italy” was.

Excellent food, though.

As for the monkey chants, well, pick any mainland European country and you’ll find some pretty dubious racial opinions, even from otherwise liberal, intelligent people.
