  1. What is the point of this thread? Everywhere has its ghettos and run-down areas. The difference between the ghettos in the US compared to third world countries is that in third world countries, the majority of living conditions are terrible, with only a very small minority ever reaching what would be the quality of life for a middle class family in the United States. Third world countries are almost entirely run-down with substandard building regulations, bad architectural design, poorly designed roads, and overall, things being unpleasant all around. So, again, while third
  2. I don’t think you have the right to claim that someone sounds like an atheist just because you don’t agree with them. @El Cid is focused on a different angle on the matter than you are. Literally babies and women being oppressed and tortured have nothing to do with the topic at hand. Non-Sequituir. How do you know if something is God’s orders? A lot of people use that phrase to shut down others from questioning anything in the religion. It’s also implying that some people don’t have enough faith otherwise “they wouldn’t question God’s orders”, when in actuality it’s a manipu
  3. Everyone should have enough money to have some disposable income. And there’s nothing wrong with it. Being wealthy isn’t wrong—it’s what you do with it.
  4. I agree with this. The problem is that for some immigrants or children of immigrants who criticize the US aren’t critical of, for instance, systemic racism and want to find ways to solve it, but rather, because they hate the US and everything it stands for, raise their children to think of the US as the devil and their “home countries” as the best. All the while, live in beautiful big homes in the US, have great job opportunities, and have a phenomenal quality of life that they know they wouldn’t ever come close to had they stayed “back home”. You can’t bite the hand that feeds you. That’s the
  5. Then isn’t it ironic that the very people who spend their days criticizing the US are the ones who wouldn’t even last 2 months living “back home”. The way I see it, people are ungrateful. If “The West” is so terrible, they should just leave. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.
  6. So, you’re telling me that I have no right to be angry when everyone disrespects my culture and stereotype the American people. But as soon as I point out their hypocrisy, how Islam doesn’t promote their behavior either, all of a sudden, I’m the one being disrespectful, because it doesn’t fit your narrative? I don’t want to continue this conversation with you. This is the reality. Since you are unaware of how rude and backwards middle eastern people are and don’t find their behavior problematic, then there is no point in discussing this further with you.
  7. So, basically you choose to completely ignore how Laayla’s a bully to everyone, that people have ganged up on me, how @Ashvazdanghe has disrespected me when I said I wanted an Americanized man (when I did nothing wrong) and instead you gaslight and tell me that I’M exaggerating. Are you freaking kidding me? If you can’t see anything wrong with how Middle Eastern women behave, then you’re part of the problem.
  8. Lol no. But thanks for the laugh
  9. It was about her mannerisms. Her general kindness.
  10. That was an accident and was at the end of the video. My intention wasn’t to show men that women are showing their bumps. Mods, feel free to delete the video, my intention was to show the differences in culture. The point stands. An Arab woman in the other video I showed was yelling at a woman saying awful things. What about that? I was pointing out how American women are friendlier compared to middle eastern women who go psycho. I hope the mods ban you for all of your abusive behavior. You said to a convert that she deserved her child being taken from her. You have smeared food on the faces o
  11. Cop-out response. You think it’s really okay anywhere in the world to yell the way Middle Eastern people do? Did you even watch the video? This is why Middle Eastern people look like complete psychos to the rest of the world, because they are so unaware of how they make themselves and Islam look.
  12. @Ashvazdanghe This is what it means to be culturally American: This is also what it means to be an American (note the general friendliness and difference in mannerisms compared to the British and Australian women): This is a culturally middle eastern woman: See the difference?
  13. Isn’t that obvious? But what about other qualities that are important? Someone could be chaste, good natured, religious, and yet, you might not get along with them. Looking good on paper is different than actually getting along as a couple. The basics are choosing someone who has a good personality and is practicing. But there’s so much more than just those two aspects. Specifics are important, like knowing who you are as a person and knowing what you want in a romantic partner. What you like, what you don’t, what are red flags and deal breakers (besides religion). Otherwise, people sh
  14. So when I wanted to find a man, it was really important to me to find someone who was sweet and Americanized. Most 1st gen/naturalized citizens and 2nd gen Middle Easterners are still so... FOB. They have certain weird cultural practices that I don’t like, with weird beliefs, and mannerisms. Their temperaments weren’t exactly Americanized. They still cared too much about what degree “looked good” and fulfilling stupid expectations set by their parents. These people didn’t have many American/non-Middle Eastern friends and had trouble fitting in, so they had a lot of anger issues and were sort o
  15. The religion doesn’t talk about depression. It talks about general despair and hopelessness, not mental illness. Saying things like, “the religion says you’re ungrateful, you don’t care about God” to suicidal people only hurts them. Mental illness, such as suicide and emotional vulnerability to the extent that the OP is, can make it tough and religious advice isn’t appropriate—it sounds like you are shaming the OP. You can talk about the religion without being insensitive or lacking in empathy. When talking about depression and suicide, you should tread lightly, because insensitive respo
