I'm Saudi women So tough to be Saudi , it's like a curse... We fight for freedom and on the other hand I see many people from other countries looking down at us like we are inferior because we Give the impression of being stupid with this UGLY hijab!!! we come from shitty culture that is ruled by Fu@" men Sometimes I wish I was born elsewhere with another passport and religion so I wouldn't be ashamed of myself
You see, your story is an example to why I dislike the Saudi Arabian community and culture, while I definitely don't agree with you taking off your hijab (because I'm all for hijab and niqap), But I can understand what got you to this point. They lack manners, they don't really know how to bring up their children in a healthy Islamic household.
Not to mention the hypocrite criminal Saudi Arabia government that helps the USA and Israel in massacring our Muslim brothers and sisters.
I think it wonderful for you to be able to feel able to post and ask for opinions. Here in the UK we are lucky enough to be multilateral nearly personally I enjoy talking to people of all races and religions. Big cultural changes take at least 3 generations to be changed. Theirs nothing wrong with your beautiful country its simply going through great change.
I don't know much about them or any in person (only on awesome Tunisian lady who got raised there) so can't say much about them... but what I can say that I don't like at all how women are treated there.
Personally i find all muslim girls to be mysterious (which kinda intrests me) but the muslim men are a right pain in the a*s i once had a argument with a guy about a selfie. i took a selfie and unfortunately i was near them the guy came and started demanding to see the pic so he couldbe sure that his family wasn't in the pic. i was like WTF bro their faces are covered theyre not even gonna be recognized but i finally showed the pic and he left after staring at it for a full minute to make sure that his family wasn't in it. the funny thing was when i took the selfie he was taking a pic of his family with his wife and daughters face covered expect for the eyes. Sorry about the grammer sending this from a phone and feeling too lazy to care
I think most Saudi women don't think like you do. Most of them enjoy the advantages that gender roles provide them with, and don't want to lose those. Challenging those roles, have other consequences such as losing men as the woman's personal chauffeur. When women have the right to expose more of themselves also leads to greater body image issues for women. Overall I think Saudi women are stuck in the mindset that gender roles are a good thing. The only ones that seem to want out of gender roles, generally still expect men to stay in his gender role.
As a man I find that culture as repressive for men as it is for women just in different ways. I like being free from gender roles, and I enjoy looking at pretty girls showing off their sexy bodies. I would be worried about dating a woman from that country, because I don't want to end up stuck in a gender role in my relationship.
