Surprised!? In such a totally unnatural environment as is the Magical Kingdom, where a regular man has almost zero contact of any kind with a regular woman, this kind of undersexed aggression as well as all manner of sexual deviances are easily developed.

Basically, the more religious and conservative a society, the more messed up it is.

The Dhahran mall was the first mall in the Eastern Province to allow men and women to enjoy a starbucks coffee "side-by-side". One reason why the ladies didn't go back inside. That would have meant getting back through the crowd of sex-starved thugs. Report in the Arab News today.

Harass them all you want, just don't take pics/videos of abuse of expats and women in public, because that tarnishes the image of the country.

Quote:
According to sources at the General Authority for Audiovisual Media, Saudi authorities are planning to issue a new regulation shortly to reduce videography and photography in public places, especially using cellphone cameras.

This move is in light of the recent nation-wide outrage caused by various local incidents that came to the spotlight after the video clips of the events were widely shared on social media.

The new regulation is aimed at putting an end to the random recording of people and events in public places without prior permission. It is to be noted that filming people without permission is considered as an invasion of their privacy and violation of rights. Sign boards will be set up in areas where videography and photography is not allowed, reported Akhbaar24.


P.S. Aside from the story in this thread, it is referring to the several videos of expat abuse that have surfaced recently, some in public, some in private. I hope y'all have seen them, but if not, they are floating around on the web. Just search on YouTube.
