I've notice a lot of uneducated people make false assumptions or pretentious remarks such as the fact that Ancient Greek society was sexist among other things.
This is absolutely disgusting misappropriation of history. During the time of Ancient Greece the city states within the Hellenic boundaries were progressive liberal by standards of neighboring countries. Just look at the historical evidence of the nomadic lifestyle of the Germanic tribes to the North in which raping entire villages for resources and people was common practice.
The Greeks had the first Women generals as well or first lady military leaders.
Also they were the first society to accept and have full fledged gay rights and they were also the only society that bought slaves and then freed them.
It is shame that such racist sentiments pervade much common-folk thought and I hope this has opened your eyes to the racism lurking in others as well as in you should you project such things on to the Greeks.
Just remember, it were the Greeks who were responsible for defeating the Nazis and it were the Greeks responsible for much of our current knowledge.
Only two other countries lost as many to the Germans as the Greeks. The Greeks lost 10 percent of their population and were third place for most casualties in terms of relative population.
Also remember that the Greeks after WII received to reparations from Germany and were ousted from the conference illegally by a stroke of fraud by those at the conference upon which current Nazi enterprises are built. Remember that next time you buy a bmw.
