No Treats, Just Trix

From the Arab Times:

A Kuwaiti youth and two girls were referred to the concerned authorities for interrogation for fighting on the Gulf Street, says Al-Rai Al-Aam.According to sources the girls claimed the youth threw a water bottle at them besides making some obscene gestures while they were walking on the road. However, the youth denied the accusation saying "the girls were smoking and threw a lighted cigarette on my car prompting me to quarrel with them."

I suppose that's one way to deal with sexual harassment. Dear concerned youth: throwing a water bottle at girls who know how to fight back is never usually a good idea, yours truly, McArabian.

(If you thought of rabbits or prostitutes when reading the title, we're going to be very good friends)

But.. Trix are for kids!

Silly rabbit ;)

Hahah, I'm glad the girls reported the idiot. Serves those would-be-assailants right! & I find it hard to believe that a girl smoking a cigarette (which is already a glorious taboo) would seek attention by throwing it at some guy's car! Either she would be on crack, or she genuinely enjoys the pangs of harassment.

Unfortunately, whenever I'm harassed in public I just look the other way and ignore the scene, (which leaves me feeling violated and helpless). But I know that reacting will only escalate the situation; It is a lose-lose type of thing.

I think the girls were thirsty and that is why the guy threw the watter bottle at them!

Run rabbit run! :D

Sexual harrassment? Why is it that the girl is always right? That is not right! When will god correct his mistakes!

In any case, the bad girls should not have harrassed the poor guy! LOL

I mean wow he had to beat them off with a water bottle!

gigi I had no doubts that you would qualify ;)

Tricks/trix: what a prostitute does for a living - 'She's turning tricks'.
I've actually heard of prostitutes being referred to as Trix as well.

CD I'm in agreement with you. I've never seen any girls be aggressive and violent if they wanted to initiate advances. Usually it just takes a smile, sometimes a look is enough. So I'm going to go with laying the guilt on the fella.
There really ought to be classes that teach people how to deal with harassment. I know of a couple of classes here in California. Hmmm..a see a new project in my future.

hopeless poet I think the guy's car was too cold, that's why the girls threw a cigarette in there :P

q8ty You really think the girls started this fight? I can't agree with you there (for the reason I already stated above). And I'm not sure how God is involved in this.

laily I have a pair of socks with that pic ;)

shady I only post newsclips that embody some of the ridiculousness that is in Kuwait society ;) And yeah dramaaahh!

qatar I see you're of the same opinion as q8tyshareef :P In seriousness, I don't think anything should be flying at anyone, that's just tacky :P

Personally..I think the guy just mentioned the cigarrete just so he'd win the police over to get them to think of her as a "bad girl that smokes"...he sounds that stupid!

Blogger q8tyshareef said...

Give the guy a break. He might be innocent. As for god, nevermind. 90 % of the time it would be the guy initiating the problem, but there is that 10 %.

I thought of the rabbit, but not the prostitute, but I see where a gutter minded person could get that from! (Honestly, it's still pretty early but I would normally infer something like that from the title, because, well, I'm just like that at times.)

Note to self: Never throw bottles at women, especially ones who can kick your ass.

ok some of us just walk off with sad memories because of stupid boys, my friend was here for a visit a couple of years ago, we went to Mc Donald's drive through, my window was down as prepared for the order it's only normal, there were 3 guys walking along us as the line was slow due to za7ma, since we weren't paying attention for them the decided the best way of revenge is to throw their cokes at my car, apart from outside also the inside got soked with their drinks, the more upsetting part was that it happened infront of many other guys and no one thought we should stand up for our sisters, it left a bit of hate in me for our boys.


sad isn't it

misscosmo That sounds like a reasonable turn of events. It bothers me a little that the reporter found it necessary to quote the guy word for word but not the girls.

q8ty You've got a point, there are some girls out there who are probably pretty bad. But in this case, I'm favouring the odds ;)

swair Glad you caught on ;) Well, the cig was thrown 'on' the car, not at the boy. I wonder how different Kuwait would be for girls if all of them reacted that way to being harassed ;)

william Are you saying I'm a gutter minded person? Wait, don't answer that.
Good note.

jazz central If a fued did happen, which side would you be on?
And Thanks :)

spontaneous That's not even close to being funny or acceptable. As much as I adore Kuwaiti men, most Kuwaiti boys I run across are a bunch of fucktards when they travel in packs. If you pull one of them away from the pack, he turns into a slobbering little kid. I'm sorry that happened to you :(

shewrites Feels good to say it out loud, doesn't it? :P

bitzer My lord, man, that's just awful :P

carbon The rabbit thing is from an old cereal commercial where the mascot is a rabbit trying to get to the product but failing every time: "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!"

I have no idea why Papillona hasn't updated her blog, but I wouldn't be too worried. It's Eid holiday so people are usually really busy or out of the country.

I'm not sure where you got the impression that I'm Scottish, but I've never been to Scotland :) (would love to visit though!)

Don't worry about punctuation and grammar. I usually check the blogs before I've had my morning coffee, so my comments are often wierdly worded and full of mistakes. I feel your pain on that one.

And yes, Donne is one of my favourite poets - how did you know? :)

I thought of Prostitute rabbits, have you seen them before? Trashy rabbits that wear latex and these awful tie up boots....

they usually loiter on corners, providing all kinds of curb crawler entertainment.

Didnt know we had them here in Kuwait though, last place i saw them was in SF.

Blogger Equalizer said...

LOL Sorry but the level of journalism in Kuwait is very close to that of tabloids. We never know what really happened. Both arguments are plausible I guess, assuming the whole story is true. Even if it wasn't true, would a non-existant boy object to it?

Sexual harrassment?Why???

10:24 PM  
Blogger McArabian said...

entrepreneur Do they have those pro rabbits in LA? I'll go check this weekend.

equalizer That is true, Kuwait news reporting is not exactly up to par :) It's just so difficult for me to picture girls in Kuwait being that angry without provocation.

sailor I'm thinking it happened the other way round, he threw water at the girls and made obscene gestures at them, and they replied by throwing a cigarette at the car. Either way, they both need to grow up.

sam Kuwait society being in the sad state of affairs it is in, when it comes to communication between strangers of the opposite sex (especially among the young'uns), that communication usually manifests in some form of sexual harassment.

Blogger Qatar Cat said...

As kids I remember we used to tease boys and were teased by boys endlessly until we grew up a little and started flirting with them, and then we grew up some more and started judging other youngers' behaviour... I guess it's tough when you can't really tease or flirt in the open, only judge. We don't know who is right or wrong here, but it feels good to twist the story this way or the other, playing Devil's advocate. It's fortunate that there were just a water bottle and a cigarette butt on the car (if any). Harrassment can turn nasty if it's the only way people can express themselves...

Do any of these dumb guys ever succeed with girls? I have never found a girl who doesn't think they are anything but stupid. In Italy, men quietly praise a girl's beauty as they pass. My wife will attest to the power of that. Moral, don't let your wife go to Italy alone. Young Kuwaiti men, time to grow up.

7:34 PM  
Blogger McArabian said...

qatar You're right. It's weird how something as stupid as pulling a girls hair can be traumatizing to young kuwaiti girls when done by a strange boy at a mall because neither girl nor boy know anything about dealing with the opposite sex on a social level. I'm completely against segregation in public schools for that reason alone. It's unrealistic and unnatural to seperate men and women at all times.

sheba Pimpin' rabbits are cool too ;)

sailor Fair enough :)

boojam When guys start getting desperate, even negative attention will do. I've been to Italy, they men kept calling me like you would call a cat. It cracked me up :) I think the best praises I've heard came from Lebanese men. Always suave, and they know exactly what to say to make me blush and grin at the same time. Kuwaiti men need to pick up a trick or two from them ;)

I should add Eidkum Mubarak to that and send it as a mass message.

btw, the stones chasing the young boi in your yellow pic strangely look like headless sperms... pard the french

sum kuwaiti guys could really be mean... i mean they hit on girls in such a vulgar and irresponsible way u have to feel for the ladies... others however might have the courtesy of adding a rose with their jerky comments or a smelly love note but that's just about it... until men and women are allowed to freely sit together at KNCC (now Kuwaitescape), flirting will never be the same in kwt
