While I always like your posts trying to show people the "real" side of Arabs; isnt it true that none of the people you post are truly
representative of the average Arab?
The reason they are all so good looking is that they're models, actresses etc. When I went to the ME, most women wore headscarves etc... and I
wasn't even in Saudi Arabia.
Sometimes it depends what area you go to, women are more comfortable hanging around their own neighbourhoods and social get togethers. I was not a
tourist, I was living among them, so I see things tourist don't see, I see more of the real people, in the neighbourhoods.
It also mainly depends on the country or city. Some countries women prefer to wear scarves more or not speak to tourists as much.
Yes it's true they are celebs. They do not represent the "average" arab in money and looks, but they do represent many Moroccan people, the style
and culture. I was showing another side, which is a reality. For example the first 2 pictures is a normal girl who was on star academy (like American
Idol, but different)
Just watch arabic music videos, the women in them represent arab women, because arab women copy their fashion, makeup, and the singers represent the
I don't know where you went but I see more beautiful women in Morocco in 1 day than I do in 1 week in London haha, and over half don't wear scarfs.
Even the Moroccan Princesses are kind of pretty.
Even many of my Moroccan friends and cousins are very beautiful, some more beautiful than those celebs I showed, I can send you proof by u2u if you
don't believe me lol.
There are of course a lot of average and not so pretty people around, just like any other place.
But my point was to not show beautiful people! Dammit! I'm getting carried away
But to show that people are free to do and wear what they want, that they are more modern than people think, there is not much women getting
oppressed as people think, and there is NOTHING wrong with covering themselves up if they choose, like the moroccan style dresses for example, which
are beautiful not oppressing. I was showing another side, another reality.
