The Guardian's brief explainer: "A Reddit post said Swedes don’t feed their children’s playmates when they visit. But why – and why has it caused an uproar?" In The Conversation, Timothy Heffernan explains what #Swedengate tells us about food culture and social expectations. From Louise Callaghan on Twitter, "On #swedengate, when I was about seven I had lunch at my friend's house and my grandma called her parents and tried to pay for it." The Daily Beast covered how the #swedengate topic moved from food to racism. There are many Twitter threads and a map that purports to show which nations are willing to feed guests. Reminder: Please keep it civil.
