I don’t know about you, but I noticed a big difference when I speak to Arab and non-Arab females. The Arab females ask you what you have been up to, blah blah blah, but throw in this:
“Did you meet anyone yet? When are you getting married or plan to?” And they throw in too, “What are you planning to cook today?”
When you talk to non-Arab females, they converse with you and ask this:
“How are you? How was your weekend? Any plans for today? You planning a vacation?”
See the difference in mentality?
I am not white washed or anything or ever will be. I don’t get affected by anyone, and I make my own choices. I am very Arab, but I call my self the very liberal in thinking Arab. I just think outside the box, and go beyond that little scope of thinking this: “Only a good Arab girl will end up in her husband’s house, and he will take care of her forever!”
Dear God!!! When I hear that crap on TV or from other Arab females I think, “Why won’t women ever learn to take care of themselves if something happens like, oh I don’t know, divorce, disability, or death. The horrible triple D’s that should be on every un-educated, overly dependent females’ notes of possibilities!”
But let’s face it, Arab females only care about one thing: Marriage. It’s like their only mission in life!
From all this ranting and thinking, I want to do something with my life. I want to be known as someone important that did something that no one else did. Something to be proud of, and is a very high achievement in life. So when people talk to me, they would think, “Yep, that’s Mona! She did something different with her life that recognized her as a human being with her own distinct thoughts and noticeable intelligence!”
