Arab Women #20: Playing Victims

July 10, 2010

 

Your average Arab woman is always the victim !

There’s always an evil guy who had broken her heart ! While this hypothetical guy might be fiction, you’re forced to acknowledge the undebatable fact that she is a victim. How dare you not to sympathize with her heart breaking fiction story ??? Even if you see 100 people dying every day on TV in your home country…you’re still forced to show sympathy to her mystical perpetual sadness !

So if your Arab woman was in a relationship before, it’s always the man’s the fault. She assumes that it’s her right to pick up the phone, call the guy, and yell at him. It’s her given right ! Why, of course, “all girls do that” , is her ready counter argument. Even if she realizes that she wasn’t the right girl for that guy, it’s still assumed that the guy was a player who broke her heart. Bo-friggin-hoo ????

No matter how hard the guy tries, he’s always wrong. He’s always missing one crucial “right” of hers. She forgets that a typical Arab man is expected to be the Jesus of the relationship: financially, emotionally, physically, and mentally. 

It’s a very entertaining idea to her to throw herself in the arms of “feminism”, even if those ideas aren’t remotely related to our society, still, it’s a very nice chance to play victim !

Disturbing pictures on facebook of girls crying & ridiculously sad songs over heart breaking is a must ! Even if she has the most loving husband and the most comfortable & cozy life…she has to be the victim and complain endlessly about how unfair Arab men are !

And you wonder why good guys feel very frustrated ? Because they’re blamed anyway. It’s not appreciation that we seek, it’s just the constant complaining is what we’re trying to avoid !

Somebody needs a grip on reality…a comparison between relationships in the Arab world and other societies can spare us a lot of drama.
