Trans Fear



England later kicked all of their asses, but that's besides the joke.

Scotland, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark share a lot of history, which is why they share a lot of words in their languages, and a lot of the old myths are the same as well.

They also all did some things that the English considered rather feminine. Of course there's the kilt (which is even an old Scandinavian word) which the English confused with a skirt, and the vikings were obsessed with combing and braiding their hair, not to mention being clean. They washed their faces every day and their entire body once a week. Doesn't seem like much to us today, but to the English it was weird (Not that the vikings washed that often, but that they did it at all).

To be honest if I saw a bunch of guys coming at me wearing skirts and wielding axes I'd probably be pretty scared too.

@StolenBjorn The Vikings actually learnt about hygiene and cleaning from visiting the Middle East and adopted their cleaning regime.

Acording to the arabic writer Ibn Fadlan, the vikings were extremely dirty, that sais a lot about how scandinavian, arabic and english hygiene standards were 1000 years ago compared to eachother :p
