My boyfriend with his friends want me to go but tbh it's the last place I want to visit. I'm sure it's a beautiful country but there is some things I don't support about it especially their treatment of women. Have you ever been and what are your thoughts?

In my opinion it's a really stupid country. What's supposed to be beautiful about it? There are no historical sites, no interesting culture... it's all just a couple of sky scrapers in the middle of a huge, endless desert. That's it. I am absolutely against all the rich idiots who live there and throw around with their money as though it was toilet paper or something like that. I think it's appalling that these people would rather buy themselves 50 different cars and 20 different houses and 5 private islands instead of perhaps making their society a little more egalitarian and let everyone profit from the country's wealth. I also think it's disgusting how these people build all kinds of crazy bullshit and help destroy the global climate instead of being a little more humble. Oh and to the terrible situation of women we could also add that homosexuals are killed and immigrant guest workers are literally held as slaves (in Quatar too, by the way). There employers take away their passports so they can't travel back home and then they stop paying them and the guest workers can't do anything about it because they don't have money to go to court, they can't leave the country... so they're forced to keep working as modern slaves. I can't understand how anyone with a sane mind can possibly find this country awesome. You can as well cheer for North Korea.7
