Are there problems with ethnic or religious prejudices? Gender equality?

Danes can be a little unwelcoming for immigrants, but definitely no problems with religious or gender prejudices. - May 1, 2014
Gender, not at all. Race, some, but nothing significant. Danes aren't really religious anymore, though traditional Protestant themes and holidays are the basis of official Denmark. - Feb 8, 2014
Danes typically no longer practice a faith and you will even see/hear some derogatory comments about "mythology". Despite their touted "tolerance" of other races, you will still hear or see some practice of discrimination against immigrants. However, this has more to do with "being Danish" or not, as the case may be, than it has to do with race. - Aug 7, 2011
I didn't experience any. It is a very tolerant society and everyone seems equal. - Jul 22, 2011
