in response to reader comment: Regarding Saudis on Student Visas

Submitted by Nourah (Saudi Arabia), Aug 31, 2010 at 06:02

I'm a woman from saudi arabia, I was born and raised in riyadh. I'm 27 years old and so far I have not faced any problems in my life regarding sexism. Either in my proffessional or personal life.

I've been married for two years to the man I love. And like many saudi men he is brilliant, intelligent, respectful and respected.

I've also been raised in by the most understanding father on earth. He is saudi, and better yet, from qassim. I've never seen him disrespect my mother in any way possible. But I've seen him stand by her side and donate a kidney to her when she was in ill health.

As for what you're saying on saudi men, I'm just asking you not to believe everything you see on 24.

Generalizing a thought built on false misconceptions distributed by the yellow journalism you call "fox news" is just plain racism. It's like saying all americans are fat, ignorant hillbillies. It's far from true. But you just keep justifying racism and making it sound like you "care and sympathize" for the women of arabia.

Rest assured, saudi women are strong and can handle themselves. And believe it or not many are happy with our traditions.
