All Arab men beat their women.
Oh, so do all Indians and Pakistanis.
And all Hispanic men do the same.
Oh, and you say you’re Korean? Yeah, all Korean men beat their women too.
Especially when they become Muslim.
It’s not to do with Islam or anything, Islam is a good religion and doesn’t teach this kind of behavior. But I just wanted to warn you, because you’re new to the religion, and people don’t like to tell new Muslims these true things. So, one day ten years from now, you’ll remember that one lady who tried who tried to tell you! And these girls who tried to stop me!
No, these are not my words and thoughts. They’re the real thoughts and feelings of an Arab woman who I don’t know from a bar of soap. Last night, we were sitting in the masjid with a woman who is new to Islam. We were talking about Islamic fundamentals, and then this completely strange person walked into the room. When she found out that this girl is a new Muslim, she launched into the above tirade, and no amount of polite distraction could derail her. At first, I was mildly amused because it was so stupid that all I could do was laugh on the inside…but then when she started telling the girl about her own culture and ethnicity, I had enough. Talk smack about your own culture…but don’t get offensive about another’s. It’s rude. Since when are Muslims are allowed to be rude?!
And don’t tell me, five times, that you’re a Ph.D in Nutrition when you’re clearly far too uninformed for anything but a Ph.D in Numbskullness. Fer cryin’ out loud, woman! *imagine a Southern accent*
