No. - Feb 2022

Recently I have heard there has been a big push towards sending asylum seekers back to Syria by revoking their residency permit. They can't legally send them back since they don't have an Embassy in Damascus, so their plan is to detain people in camps until they voluntarily deport themselves. - Jun 2021

Danes can be a little unwelcoming for immigrants, but definitely no problems with religious or gender prejudices. - May 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 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 2011

I didn't experience any. It is a very tolerant society and everyone seems equal. - Jul 2011
