Oppression at its fucking finest

If you havent seen this, read it and weep.

We should face reality and call things by their name. If indeed it is true that sexual harrassment is experienced by 98% of foreign women visitors and by 83% of Egyptian women and that 62% of Egyptian men admitted harassing women and 53% blame women for 'bringing it on', then we have a serious problem.

The only explanation is that we must be a nation of misogynist dick heads. Oppression has many forms in Egypt: political, economic, religious, social... but why are women bearing the brunt of it? And what does this say about us? How can someone believe that looking at woman's hair is a sin and at the same time go around physically assaulting women (veiled or not veiled) because he is "bored".

Who's fault is it that we reached this sad state? Its easy to blame it on our corrupt dysfunctional and incompetent government and the hysterical retarded sheikhs and clerics, but every single one of us is guilty really.
