[quote name='Schumikonen' post='162826' date='Dec 20 2006, 09:31 PM']the only thing I don't like about women is the mestrual period but there's nothing I can do about that,[/quote]
That is possibly worse than anythign bajo said..
1 Kings 11
Solomon Disobeys the LORD
1-2The LORD did not want the Israelites to worship foreign gods, so he had warned them not to marry anyone who was not from Israel.
Solomon loved his wife, the daughter of the king of Egypt. But he also loved some women from Moab, Ammon, and Edom, and others from Sidon and the land of the Hittites. 3-4Seven hundred of his wives were daughters of kings, but he also married three hundred other women.
You never see the best looking woman, you can see one that you think is the best one and then a better one apears, teh thing is that they are all different, even twins are different.
[quote name='Shane2' post='162903' date='Dec 21 2006, 08:58 AM']Treating women like sex objects is about as good as oppressing them. And how is having equal rights for all extreme?[/quote]
No. When it is done in a setting where there is a legal issue, then
there is a problem. Between consenting adults, who cares. Theer are plenty of women of the kind that bajo prefers, and it's his life.
Did I just defend bajo
[quote name='abbas_gear' post='162939' date='Dec 21 2006, 04:55 PM']shane, got nothing against you, but actually, most of the women in arab countries live a better life when compared to the rest of the world[/quote]
Umm no. Many of those countries have vile primitive stone age laws and customs. That is a very hollow claim to make. Women should be free to live the lives they want, let them decide what they think is a better life.
[quote] it is just that they are not being given the social rights, other than in countries like iran and afganistan, women do hold the house hold powers.
if their husband doesnt treat them well, they can voice their concern and see that he doesnt repeat his antics.[/quote]
No they can't. Pakistan recently overturned a rape law, where a woman had to produce 6 male witnesses to prove a rape
I am sure Iran, Saudi Arabia and their ilk still have those laws. In fact (and the last thing I want is to be called anti Muslim) but the divorce law in the Indian Muslim Personal Code is a travesty against justice and all human values.
The right to equality under law and the right to not be discriminated against is a basic human principle, any country that does not follow it should be ashamed.
(That said there are countries in that ergion with far more liberal laws, so the generalisation doesn't work, of course.)
the marrage system in those countries are different from countries like india, that is the bride's family doesnt have to pay anything to the groom
Don't know, the other laws are so barbaric as to make that rather academic.
[quote]there is no trafficing of women,[/quote]
Plenty, though from other countries usually.
[quote]there is no exploitations like in countries like (am ashamed to say) india, thailand etc etc....[/quote]
Rubbish.They just can't speak about it.
Did I jsut agree with Shane
PS: From my limited knowledge, women in places like UAE, Lebanon etc. have many more rights.
PPS: Iran was once one of the most liberal countries in the middle east
