LOL I would like this comment five times if I could. Some of the women are so very brainwashed, it's truly quite sad to see. There are muslim women that lead fulfilling lives, but a damn sight lot of them don't.

One of the reasons why these men are so incredibly self-entitled is due to religious teachings. Entitlement is the leading cause of domestic abuse. A lot of their abusiveness comes from entitlement in that the perfect woman is supposed to meet ALL their needs. Even the women in paradise are supposedly eternal virgins with no flaws or needs of their own. Some of them will have a virgin/wh*re dichotomy (which leads them to cheat). Others will want you to be both.

If he wants sex and you don't, then you basically have to come up with a 100-word essay on why you can't. Merely being tired isn't valid. Look it's one thing to make your man happy, but this verges on 50 Shades of Grey (which is, unsurprisingly, very popular in the M.E).

This is it. Oversexed, testosterone charged male privilege.
