  1. What kind of logical argument can a child really make that would convince someone that he or she should be the other sex? Children barely start to differentiate between genders around that age so i don't think a child is capable of 'feeling trapped' in their body .. This is choice, not due to a medical necessity the child might have. So many girls don't like being girls especially in Muslim societies at that age because they strongly feel men or boys have it easier. But they grow up to be happy women. I just think 9 is toooo young to put a child on any medication to alter the natural puberty p
  2. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2631472/NHS-sex-change-drugs-nine-year-olds-Clinic-accused-playing-God-treatment-stops-puberty.html Seriously, what implication will this have on society? How are 9 year olds mature enough to choose what they want? One minute they want ice cream and the next they want crisps. Can 9 year olds even comprehend what's happening? Their bodies haven't developed, they haven't experienced life really, how does clothing preference determine what sex they should be? You've got to be 16 to 18 to get married in most parts of the world! This is so bizarre.. Thoughts
  3. It's the appropriate thing to do given that vehicles tend to drive the wrong way on one way streets.. Really?! People get fined? Things have changed! and I've not caught on apparently.. Good to hear that traffic isn't that bad anymore.

  5. Jiski lathi uski bhains! Law and order is rapidly declining and some places have it worse than others – Hazara and Karachi. And then there are parts of the country where life is normal but corruption prevails. But the disgusting and appalling fact is that people are willing to integrate this decline in law and order into their lives. People strangely seem to be okay with it. Despite the complaining and dissatisfaction the system is embraced because it’s too large to be beaten – not blaming anybody. Some parts of the country are a war zone with continuous terrorist attacks. Every single day t
  6. Wait so is Pakistan the capital of Karachi?
  7. sorry I meant like at 1 am when in the most abandoned part of the city.. Good to hear this though, because accidents do happen. My mum was driving once and I was sat in the passenger seat and the signal turned red and so naturally my mum stopped and this car behind us collided with us. Not to make this dramatic but I scratched my hand!
  8. I have an uncle, he wears a seat belt and he stops at every red traffic light, do you know how rare that is?
  9. lagta hai apko bijli kay bohran nay sakht paraishan kar rakha hai..
  10. Get cold turkey for your computer and block all distracting websites - even SC! Clearly the lesser the distractions the better. Set achievable targets for yourself so that you ar never too overwhelmed. What works best for me is accountability. People usually procrastinate because they are only answerable to themselves for certain tasks. Self accountability is the best, but a lack of it leads to procrastination. Therefore get others involved. Ask a parent, sibling or friend to check up on you. Tell them your targets for the day or week or even the hour and then ask them to check whether you hav
  11. Her argument sadly was that I will not be a good mother and wife and also its a MAN's world.. apparently. I have seen people insinuate on this website that more educated women / women educated more than the husband tend to be too problematic which I guess is sort of in sync with what my aunty meant. I probably need a few practical lessons in life because I don't see why men wouldn't want to marry girls who are very educated. I see it as a more informed and educated family and I don't want to go into the benefits of education as I feel I have derailed this thread too much already. Seems like mo
  12. Pakistani life is not as dramatic as we’re making it sound. I feel like I am on defense mode while replying to your post. I can’t help it, despite all the flaws in Pakistan I do love the country, so now I have this urge to tell you how fantastic Pakistani parents are when it comes to education at least. I’ll try to justify situations and circumstances. Very few young adults know what they want to be when they are 14 – 18? If you don’t study biology at GCSE then chances are you cannot become a doctor, so when you are applying to universities’, if it dawns upon you that your true calling in life
  13. Someone said to me once 'what I thought only astronauts studied maths'. Do you want to go to join NASA and go to space? And he wasn't even joking! And others in the room agreed! I was baffled he even knew what NASA was. Do you know what needs to be changed is the concept of educating women only so that they are marraige material. My baradari was horrified at my subject choices, my uni choice and so on. Most people put me off as a spoilt brat who had no regard for our culture or religion. I've had a lot of hostility. A close Aunty reprimanded me once by saying I'll have to answer God for my ac
  14. I hope people develop a different attitude towards psychological illness soon because they other than the mental affects they tend to have very real physical symptoms. For example a panic attack comes with intense chest pains which might feel like a heart attack.. Anyways I know there is a lot of stigma associated with mental disorders and the 'main pagal nahi hoon' concept. I'll add to the common things we hear back home.. 1) siraf rata laga k pass hona hai, history students don't do any real learning 2) siraf gup likhni hai, aur correct English and you'll get marks in sociology 3) Philosophy
