If you’re reading this now, then you probably have been drawn to the title and thought I’d be writing sexual stuff that would be a turn on. Sorry to disappoint you, but I’m not horny right now and this post isn’t sexual, however it will certainly tackle sex in the Egyptian society. So feel free to stop reading or simply check this out without being a pre judgmental asshole.
Hypocrisy in the Egyptian Society
You got all those magnificent looking pages on FB calling for respecting women and their freedom to dress what they want, have their own choices in life and move forward with their careers, but I’ve never encountered one of those pages talk about women’s sexuality in the Egyptian society. I always get the feeling that they try their best to avoid this subject as it has religious overtones as well. So basically my freedom ends when religion begins. This is what I call hypocrisy. Therefor, all those intentions to free women and protect them is simply a lost cause because they ignore a highly important part of a woman’s identity which is her sexuality.
Most of Egyptian men as well as women would feel shocked or they would have a hard time absorbing the thought that women and girls in general do feel sexual excitement and have sexual needs ! They would condemn such feelings by saying that it’s ”sharmata” which is being ”slutty”.
If you think my thoughts so far are blasphemy, I advice you to stop reading now.
So those women are called ”sluts” because they express or have natural feelings and needs that they were born with (god created them along with human beings) .
Religion forbids having sex before marriage:
I won’t argue a lot in this particular point, but I’ll question it. How can god forbid something that he created in humans when they were born ? Doesn’t waiting to get married to have sex is considered a chaotic decision and a life wrecker for many people ? How can you get married to someone and have a sexual life with them without getting used to them first ? What if you don’t feel sexually comfortable with the person ? Will you spend the rest of your life with him/her due to marriage ?
What if I never get married ?? Will I stay a virgin without having sex till I die ?? Will god reward me in the after life just like he will reward men ?? Or will be the reward for those men ??
Why is heaven full of sex ?? Why can’t Earth be full of sex and heaven be a spiritual non sexual place where souls simply exist without any sexual stuff ???
Why is it considered disgraceful and sinful that I ask these questions and think about everything in general ?? I was born with a brain wasn’t I ???
