Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men

Submitted by Psychology (United States), Feb 20, 2018 at 03:49

lived in the M-E for a couple years and most women from there are not born with a conscious. They're not raised to have a say. They're not raised to have any self awareness. They are raised to GIVE. GIVE. AND GIVE to a man until her hands fall off. MEN are the universe in that world. Everything revolve around man. I've seen it time and time again where a women had no conscious awareness of what's really happening in the world around her. Its as though from birth girls are to have their eyes removed completely and only survive on the HAND that feeds her because she's not able to do it on her own.
Where I come from its different. It's frowned upon for a man to treat a woman like she's any less human than him. Its frowned upon because being treated that way leads to self doubt. Loss of self worth and that leads to insecurity and unhappiness that will only lead to depression and then suicide. As you can see what that does to the mental health of woman here in American culture. People call american woman "emotional" or "sensitive" but we were born to have emotions. That's how we bond with other people, create connections and relationships. If you have no emotions then you're considered a phychopath. Being a phychopath is frowned upon where I come from because being a phychopath increases the chance of violence in the beholder's life, crime, sexual assault, drug abuse and even murder. Phycopaths are considered people who do not hold a conscience. We are told to stay away from Phychopaths because THEY can cause ALOT of pain just as I mentioned earlier. Pain that from a young age is not acceptable because it strips a person away from happiness leading to depression = Unhappy life. Nobody wants to live that sort of life. So it is up to you to decide what kind of life you want to live. Understand that it is a completely different world. Im not saying ALL M-E is this way but I have seen quite a bit of it myself first hand and its just their normal which is fine but its up to you to decide if thats what you want. Because its true if you love someone, you sacrafice for them but some woman can't sacrafice their whole belief-system(what they were taught is acceptable and what is not , growing up)because they grew up being taught otherwise. Not saying anyone should give that up. But Being real here its only up to you (The reader) to decide what they will or will not accept.
