Does This Happen In Your Country? is a catchphrase popular on 4chan that is used primarily as a request for relation, but can also convey other meanings. Popularized on 4chan's /int/ and /bant/ boards, the catchphrase has remained in active use on 4chan since 2021.
The phrase "does this happen in your country" has originally been used on 4chan's /int/ and /pol/ boards in its literal sense, for inquiring if a certain thing that is commonplace in one country also happens in other countries. In 2017-2019 period, the phrase achieved association with discussions related to immigration to Europe, race mixing and similar topics, with the post often bringing up a negative personal experience and the catchphrase used to punctuate it (2017, 2018 and 2019 /pol/ posts shown below, left and right).
The use of the catchphrase first deviated into a humorous direction approximately in mid-2019, when 4chan users started using it as a non-sequitur comment for images of homosexual intercourse, among other things. This was common primarily on the /r/int and /r/bant boards. For example, on August 29th, 2019, an Australian user used the catchphrase together with an LGBTQ+ comic (shown below, left). On September 4th, 2019, an Argentinian user combined it with the Daily Dose meme (shown below, center). On May 16th, 2020, a user paired it with a pornographic drawing made by Chris-Chan.
Starting in mid-2021, the comment stated being used as a general request for relation. For example, on June 6th, 2021, a French user made a /pol/ thread about dating in which they used the catchphrase in such a way (shown below, right)
Starting in mid-2021, the catchphrase saw further spread on /int/, /bant/ and other boards. For example, on August 28th, an Italian user made a /bant/ post using the catchphrase (shown below, left).
In December 2021, the phrase started spreading outside of 4chan, mainly through reposts. For example, on December 15th, Facebook page Burds ARE Real posted a screenshot of an /int/ post that gained over 800 reactions and 100 shares (shown below, right).
The catchphrase maintained its popularity on /int/ and /bant/ through 2022, with multiple posts later shared on other platforms such as Reddit, Twitter and Facebook.
