This is great. Good point about how beer companies force both genders into stereotype when marketing to or objectifying women. We often think that is only women being stereotyped but the marketing stereotypes men just the same.

“The world has moved on from lads telling jokes on a Saturday,” he argued. “Beer is now drunk by women and men together.”

This. From the exec at Fosters.
Foster's boss Alan Clark has called for the beer industry to overhaul its 'sexist' marketing and stop alienating women drinkers. Beer fan Claire Cohen raises a glass in agreement (a pint, not a ladylike half thanks very much)

It's pretty easy to file in sweden. As a business owner though I had one additional step. To get a form showing my shares which was prepared for me. But it took maybe 4 min. from my computer :)

(dreading doing my American taxes though..., they really fuck us expats)
