Important Notice

It is not my intention to denigrate Saudi Arabia or its people. It’s like everywhere else, there is good and there is bad. I would rather focus on the unusual and the humourous. Offence is not intended.

“The country is not perfect. The media cannot be trusted, mistreatment of religious minorities is common and there are some that live in fear.” You can decide for yourself whether that statement is about Saudi Arabia, the UK, or any country for that matter.

To quote the Joker, “Why can’t we all just get along?”

That is all I will say about either subject.

If you are a blonde haired woman and you are planning on coming to Saudi you had better be prepared to be stared at. A lot. The men here love blonde hair.
An example: A blonde female friend of a friend was in a taxi and did not have her haired covered. Two Saudis drove up along side and starting gesticulating. They actually followed the taxi for a long way until a phone call to a muttawa friend scared them off.

simply maybe she's different. but i don't speak for saudis, na ah. i just say that coz my school had these international students, & of course they look different, guy & girl both - they stand out. even the guy, who stayed at my friend's house, the bed wouldn't even fit him since he's tall.

& i'd think juan alfonso is gorgeous too. i won't stare at him though.

The most repressive country & worst tyranny on the planet. really feel sorry for those who live in this prison. I mean this is now 21 century & women are still treated as slaves. I'll be careful about writing anything to do with Saudia while in the country...

The only reason blondes are seen as more attractive here is because people want what they don't have, or what is not available. If all women looked like, Megan Fox, per say, nobody would think her attractive anymore. My mom is a Saudi Arabian author/illustrator of children's books, and she was denied privelages from book sales that were given to another author/illustrator, but from Canada. Why? According to the person in charge, it's because "she's blond". It's disgusting.
