Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: True words are hard to swallow

Submitted by Lina (United Kingdom), Nov 29, 2019 at 18:45

I hate to generalise but it's true. And yes I've known a few women that liked to go commando underneath their niqabs - to please their husbands. It's actually quite common. Lingerie is a booming business in Egypt, for example, and the underwear is very racy lol. Nothing like Victoria's Secret. It's all to please men. Sex is almost an obsession over there, I would say even more so than in Europe in some ways. The more forbidden something is, the more you want it. And you know what, nothing wrong with it... to each their own. But for women like those two to come on here acting like princesses, when the reality is so, so much different...

What they don't get is, the moment you're placed on a pedestal you run risk of being knocked off at any minute. True love and respect means come as you are, and I'll accept you no matter what.

They do get cheated on an awful lot, and wife beating is common within arranged marriages. These are not things I've heard on the radio, I've heard them from friends and colleagues. Getting divorced is a nightmare also, both legally and socially.

I'm coming from a place of neutrality. I honestly have nothing against anyone. But I'm very observant, and I've been both the main and the side dish. I know how men from these cultures operate. And believe me when I say, you get disrespected either way.

I'm no longer reading nor responding to those sexist, ageist "personalities", whatever their gender is, as unlike them I don't need to ramble on and on to assert my beliefs. Yes, there are people in the world that are delusional but it doesn't give anyone the right to trick and scam them. At best it's opportunism. At worst it's psychopathy. That's the whole point of this site - to help and educate, not point fingers and degrade.

Five words: it is what it is.
