I am curious as to how good this british woman looked in her
bikini....after all,, not all women look good or should even wear a
bikini. Are there any pics of the "offender?"

Are there other Muslim cities out there that have a huge sex business, while arresting bikini runners?

And again, I think she was wrong also, but it is the hypocrisy that I am just trying to understand.

I'm not sure if I agree with her stripping down to her bikini . I was hoping to have pictures provided to help me decide.


This can do ?


I feel pity for her, she should wear a more revealing clothes as she please. A see thru bikini with wetlook would be nice and pose seductively of course.

Its like yelling "Yay for USA!" in North Korea, nothing wrong with that.

I agree with that 100%. When in Rome, do as the Romans. She was wrong to do this.

But I do not get how strictly moral this country is on the one hand, and then ignores this issue on the other.


Could it not be that they are simply being realistic? There is a code of dress that exemplifies modesty as a widely accepted social value.

On the other hand, they do not expect their prostitutes to be modest. They are making a clear distinction between mothers and daughters on the one hand, and prostitutes on the other.

There have always been prostitutes. There always will be. This is true in every spot on earth inhabited by humans regardless of religion. If these otherwise prudish people accept and accommodate that fact, then good for them.

Again, most western countries have legalized prostitution in some form, and laws against running around in a bikini. Dubai is nothing special in this regard.

See, we go to their countries and have to abide by their rules. They come to our countries and we get slagged off for being racist or culturally insensitive if we don't kowtow to their every wish. I'm sick of it. Talk about being frogmarched down a one way street.

Our recreation room at work is being converted into a "Reflection Room". Why ? Because one muslim staff member wants somewhere to pray. So it's OK to deny 30+ white people the room for watching tv, reading a newspaper, grabbing some lunch, just to keep one muslim happy ? I'll reflect on that question as I stand outside in the pissin rain eating my lunch in 2 weeks time.

Good luck to that woman. She'll need it.

I understand the realistic part regarding prostitution, I mentioned that possibility in an earlier post.

But is there a sex trade in Riyadh, or elsewhere in Saudi? I remember them stoning a woman for adultery, not pretending it is not there.

I think Reno is great.

I think what they are doing by allowing prostitution is "having a proper place" for it. In other words, since people will do this, have a place to do it, so it won't be public. Dubai has a lot of people from other countries, and I think they are just trying to keep these things from being public, so not to offend others. That's why the double standard. A place for everything, and everything in it's place

You are missing the point: the woman was not arrested when she was clothed. She was arrested when she chose to strip down to a bikini. I dare you to do that in the Mall of America. You will be asked to dress or leave. This Briton was not even charged.

Thank you. I agree with you but I am wondering where the general knowledge and awareness of the sex slave status comes into play.

If they want to have prostitutes in clubs, power to them. But the slavery side of it has been fairly well documented.

Do they consider slavery the same as prostitution?

I never have much sympathy for people who choose to go and work in Dubai, they should know what the deal is when they go there. Serves them right for being so greedy that they want to live in the middle of the desert and live under Islamic law.

I am curious as to why your company did not provide a different area for the Muslim, rather than take your recreation area? But I wonder why and how they did so in the first place.

I have not heard anything about companies having to offer religious concessions to the point that they have to provide a place of worship, for any religion in Western countries. Do Christians and Hindus have a place to worship here in the States at any factory, or workplace. I do not believe that to be true.

Where are you from?

A lot of people don't like being told what to do,
how to dress,how to behave...
That is why they take this defiant attitude into
other countries and flaunt it.Not taking into
consideration the price they might have to pay.

I am really not informed enough on that subject to comment on it....to be honest with you, it is very confusing to me. If it's slavery, it's wrong...if not....it's a business. There are double standards everywhere though. But I definitely think the woman who stripped in the mall was wrong. She knew where she was and that it would be offensive. Like some other posters said, she would have been called out on it in any country......unless she was at the beach. But especially being in the country she was in, you would think.....big no no.

People go to work in Dubai because they could make a lot of money, true for most professions from Executives, to Contractors, to Prostititues.

When I was stationed in Saudi, I personally did not have any problems spending most days in the city. As I understand it, the female soldiers on my base mostly disliked (and in some cases, loathed) having to follow Saudi laws, but as a male, I met very friendly, very kind people.

Because of my duties, I was allowed to let my hair grow out a bit, and to have a very light beard by my command. I mention this, because I also heard of soliders that were clean shaved and short haired being harrassed a little bit, but that was not illegal. It was just a male cultural thing to have a beard and thicker hair.

So my point is, what is so bad about living under Islamic law? Unless you are a Western female of course. It did make me feel uncomfortable having a superior officer having to walk behind me in Riyadh when that situtation arose.
