I have a few more thoughts for you.
What exactly is the culture that may be watered down? Urban and suburban western style areas are being replicated everywhere, me and aforementioned
friend are trying to figure this out. What people mean by this. I have been to Israel. My friend here has been all over there and I would say is
technically an Egyptian, if you were born there, but if your relatives are US and Israeli, wait I think such people might be technically British
(mandate of Palestine)...
Yes maybe we SHOULD discriminate and even go so far as to make everything as bureaucratic as we can!
And if everywhere is the same, and Jerusalem McDonald's have free wifi...
Oh I said she should emphasize that she was born in Egypt because there's a suburb of Cairo there called Beverly Hills.
What We Are: Western Suburban Girls. American Women. Who the Capitalists (anywhere) would like to see installed in a new kitchen, granite
countertops!, with lots of babies, being a Suburban Soccer Mom.
I mention that OP - because I want you to think about something. I don't know you, I do not wish to be offensive, I am only thinking of - some ideas
you may wish to consider. You, and all those who adhere to similar thinking.
I don't know either, what you look like, and I will guess that your avatar picture is some piece of artwork you found or created.
But let's say this. As a "hypothetical" argument. Let's say that women in your avatar pic was you. Let's say that's you.
For the prevailing Western attitudes (US, friend is poking me and saying EVERYWHERE!) - that "type" ain't gonna fly.
Red haired people are not tolerated anywhere, in US suburbia that'd mark you as either a hill billy or some kind of weirdo that dyes their hair. And
those clothes? UM, NO. When the conservative men say they want an old style woman they really mean it and that goes for the clothes, too. The clothing
on that woman is not acceptable. That's WHORE clothing right there! And I'm saying this is how you'd be judged in US SUBURBIA. Moving on to the rest
of the pic - that whole thing looks a bit "goth" there - and surely you know that that stuff is not allowed. That's WAY too weird.
Everything must be beige. Your home, your clothes, your personality, your dog, everything. I am NOT exaggerating here! Friend wants me to relay a tale
of an old school chum I saw on Fake Book. She married a guy with money, has three kids, lives in suburbia. Their house is beige. Inside and out. For
some kiddie party they rented a pony for the kids to ride on and I immediately thought - even the beast you rented is beige!
WHAT A BORING LIFE!!!
And while you are thinking that others are "outsiders" - did it ever occur to you that YOU might be the outsider?
"Red .ed goth women do not go in suburbia" - so sayeth my drinking bud here. And "That goes for anywhere".
There's a suburb of Cairo called Beverely Hills. This kills me!
Yeah, you people are so afraid of "outsiders" that it keeps getting whittled down, more and more, as to what is acceptable, and the next thing you
know is that you're Stepford Wife and Biz Tool Dad. Living in Beige Land.
Be careful what you wish for. The more narrow it goes the sooner you'll be bounced out too.
