"Femeile sunt ale noastre."

Translation:The women are ours.

Would this sentence give you weird looks if you would say this in an actual conversation?

Very likely... Depending on the context, I'm guessing.

Honestly I don't see any context in which I would feel right while saying this sentence )) And it's not the only one, there are several sentences I have encountered here, that are "socially awkward" and almost no one in their right mid would construct such sentence :)

Oh, I agree that there are many phrases including this one which would be socially awkward, to say the least! :-)

Funnily, a similar sentence referring to men (e.g. during a soccer game or in a parlamentery discussion) would raise no eye brows. Is the stereotype in the example or in the eye of the beholder here? #feminism

Do you have examples or are you just looking to be contrary? I can't imagine the sentence being acceptable either way.

"The English men and the Romanian women won this year's football tournaments. 'The men are yours but the women are ours!', said Bogdan to Steve". A bit contrived, admittedly, but not socially unacceptable...

Both socially unacceptable and a sentence that wouldn't be uttered. That example didn't make sense and wouldn't be used.

Maybe this is deliberately weird to help us remember it.

It makes me feel like a pimp
