Jo Wa,

You posted under new thread and I replied with a question. Am I an intruder for that? For the record, you did reply to me previously and vice versa.

Nice try discrediting my English, a right to write here and my dignity as a woman. I'm quite comfortable with my life, thank you. Neither bitter nor dumped. No need to get huffy nor generic.

Since you seem to have an issue comprehending my original question, let me rephrase it for you. 100% of women on this forum came in contact with Muslim men when APPROACHED by THEM online or during holidays. We don't travel to Muslim countries with matrimonial intents. We visit there to experience different cultures, spend our own money and LEAVE. Don't confuse us with panhandlers, sexual offenders, religious haters, asylum seekers nor military. Poor and undeveloped countries often appreciate tourism, as the only way to survive economically.

Prostitution gives bad reputation to these destinations, as well as to the honest, hard working class of people trying to make a living there. In my experience, locals often feel ashamed by those scammers and make sure to not be in any way associated with them.

For a "virtous Muslim", as you described yourself, you present a highly contradicting approach in condoning male prostitutes. Why would you think these men are somehow trophy husbands, not only for Western women (?), but for conservative Muslim women as well. How is that ok? The men in question by every standard are simply garbage. Please stop assuming we're all in tears and broken hearted about getting rid of them. I assure you we're not. Nobody wants to be married to that. Well, maybe with the exception of you.

Lastly, I don't care what gender you are. In fact, I didn't see you introducing yourself as a woman.

Greetings from sunny Barcelona

Shömi
