Ramadan is here again..

( Islam andUAE andWomen )

To be a woman in Egypt!

( Women )

Someone sent me this, and it's spot on!

Regarding the gang-rape story

I am really preplexed by this. I really am. How do you get 46 men to agree to rape the same girl, and do it all in one day? How did it go down exactly? Did they start calling their friends who had a free afternoon on the hand to rape somebody? How did the [...]

Your fucked up story of the day

( WTF? andWomen )

An Indonesian woman was raped in Saudi by 46 men (yes..46), including a police Officer who was supposed to aid her after her initial rape. The men are being arrested now, and awaiting a harsher punishment than the usual dick cutting that happens in Saudi when facing rape: medical tests after the rape have shown that the [...]

Typical Egyptian Male Behavior

I don't agree with all of them, but I will be damned if Mayo did not hit some nails on their heads. My Favorites: 1.He lost all his savings; Stock Market, Rayan, Private Business, you name it. 3. You are not allowed to do what he does. And that ranges from the simple issues of smoking and [...]

A few days ago, the arabist posted this piece of Hijabi propaganda: The text reads: "You won't be able to stop them (i.e. guys), but you can protect yourself. He who created you knows what's best for you!" Oh, where do I begin? Should I start with the "Men are flies" example, the MEN who [...]

Lesbianism is very very bad!

( WTF? andWomen )

There is apparently en egyptian film in the works that “tackles” the issue of woman on woman love, and I say tackles in quotation marks because it’s..well..shit. Haven’t seen the movie yet, but the story so far….yeah, it’s shit. It’s starring Ola Ghanem and Dolly Chaheene- which means we will get eye-candy and semi-nudity but [...]

The 1942 guide to hiring women

Oh, it's hilarious . My favorites are those: Pick young married women. They usually have more of a sense of responsibility than their unmarried sisters, they're less likely to be flirtatious, they need the work or they wouldn't be doing it, they still have the pep and interest to work hard and to deal with [...]

Catch-22

One day You notice that female friend distancing herself, so you ask her what's going on, and she tells you that she believes/thinks/suspects that you have feelings for her beyond that of friendship and she [...]

On Amy and Noby

Dear readers of this blog, It is rare that one passes by a story such as that of Amy and Noby nowadays. It's a story of love, marriage and retardedness. It's a story worth sharing and worth telling, and it will be told right here. I will let the story speak for itself, and will [...]

Sexy vs. Smart

A leading Femenist sees a worrying trend in today's girls: 'The overwhelming lesson teenagers are now learning from the world around them is that being "sexy" is the ultimate accolade, trumping intelligence, character and all other accomplishments at every stage of a woman's life,' said Liebau, a political analyst and the review's first female managing [...]

Tightening things up

Women of the world, stop your Keegel exercises. There is apparently a sudanese sauna-like tradition that tightens things up down there and drives sudanese men wild . Drima, so is the smell of Taali really all that? Let me know!
