Dubai is remarkably "nice" to women. For instance, husbands are encouraged to make a wife see sense by whipping her, rather than immediately resorting to divorce because she interrupted him while watching the footie...
Women have to know that they have rights too, though 'of course' they are not the same rights as men.
(though to be fair, the pet cheetah wasn't actually driving, so wouldn't be arrested as a woman might,
and couldn't be divorced for distracting the driver either) :http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/dec/25/women-charged-saudi-arabia-driving-ban-terror-court
The Dubai government 'respects' the rights of everyone to be treated 'equally,'
so this Norwegian girl who was raped received a court sentence for being raped
, just like a local woman might (though I understand flogging
is more common).
But who are we to criticise such an apparently 'successful' country where you can get gold out of an ATM,
get free food (if you aren't being raped, flogged, or dropping litter)
These rich people will not hesitate to put 'third world blasphemer' Brits in jail for many things
, although fucking a prostitute probably isn't as bad as fucking a camel. You should, however, take care not to kiss or cuddle
in public (with a woman or a camel). Pornographic material
, drugs and anti-Islamic material
are not permitted. Be aware that some everyday items may also be banned. Possession of painkillers
, for example, and some cold and flu remedies
is considered illegal and if you are found with them on your person you could be on the receiving end of mandatory four-year prison sentence. It is illegal to take photographs of many government buildings
. If you take your fiancé or a hooker with you (same thing if you're caught having sex) then you'd better get a marriage license the night before and have it annulled in the morning. The hotel staff then raping her for instance, would be a good enough reason to divorce, no problem! And if you're bored with spending more on a mobile phone than it costs to buy many a three-bedroom house in Britain, you could always go for a game of tennis.
Dubai is a rich, powerful, successful society
Of posh scum
