Dear Sis

If you are happy with being constantly controlled by your brother, your father and your husband over even the basic rights in your life, then don’t complain.

If you are happy when you think you did great at your job and a less qualified male colleague is getting the promotion while you are not, then don’t complain.

If you are happy that your social allowance is equivalent to a single male’s, while you are married with children, then don’t complain.

If you are happy for being separated and not able to get divorce from a man that mistreated you, then don’t complain.

If you are a divorced old lady who’s been kicked out of your own home which has been taken over by the young Pilipino maid, then don’t complain.

If you are happy with having a non-Kuwaiti husband, and your children are treated as foreigners although they were born and lived all their lives with you on this land, then don’t complain.

If you are happy to place your future on the hands of the illiterate, when you have reached a decent education level, then don’t complain.

Shall I go on?

If you are happy to be without power, then most probably you deserve all the above, so don’t show up tomorrow.

    If you receive a lot of money from your husband as a side salary and the house and contents are paid for, then don’t complain!

    If you are separated or divorced and get a fixed monthly income because the court system has made your husband pay, then don’t complain.

    If you are treated like queens and given too much attention by men in a country where every woman is lucky to even get any of that, then don’t complain.

    If you want your own job, pay FULLY for everything on your own without the help of any man (father or husband), not have doors opened for you, not told any great words, not chased, not given a rat’s ass for the make-up or clothes you wear nor cared for how much you spent in the salons to make yourself over; then DON’T COMPLAIN!

    LOL!

    And when you choose to believe in a religion where you allow yourself to be controled by men’s deeds and preachings (such as them having the choice to marry up to 4 women but never vice versa, then don’t complain!

    MUST I go on?
