I have done fieldwork in Egypt over more than 20 years and I cannot think of a single woman I know, from the poorest rural to the most educated cosmopolitan, who has ever expressed envy of U.S. women, women they tend to perceive as bereft of community, vulnerable to sexual violence and social anomie, driven by individual success rather than morality, or strangely disrespectful of God.

don’t trust anyone with a strong negative opinion on rap music

I sense a contradiction in terms.

“Music” implies change in some sort of pitch.  ”Rap” implies a lack thereof.  Therefore, “Rap music” is an oxymoron.  If you remove the “oxy”, you get the kind of people that like rap music.

Seriously fuck everyone here. I don’t care if they think we’re friends, I don’t care about anything actually. I should just pack it in and tell them where they can shove their bullshit

No sympathy for rapists, no sympathy for abusers, no sympathy for those who side with them. No excuses for their behavior, no justifications, no exceptions.
