cultural compatibility

2006-03-16 16:28:34.363721+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Jeff passed along an article about prep materials for a new test the Netherlands has for potential immigration to make sure that immigrants will fit into the culture. Included is a film:

The camera focuses on two gay men kissing in a park. Later, a topless woman emerges from the sea and walks onto a crowded beach. For would-be immigrants to the Netherlands, this film is a test of their readiness to participate in the liberal Dutch culture.

If they can't stomach it, no need to apply.
