Climbing Up The Walls
There was 7 of us when my close friend Volks said,
The first rule is that, except your mother, every woman is a whore. Every woman has a whore inside, sometimes a little whore, and sometimes a big one.
Nobody objected at all to what was said. The reaction was a mix between laughter and approval. I was disgusted inside but didn't know where to start. This is what I was able to say,
Your problem is that you view women as less than men.
To which he responded immediately,
Yes, of course.
I was not in the mood of arguing and the time wasn't right, so I decided to keep it inside for now. I couldn't get it out of my head. I kept my wondering if these views are somehow related to the mass sexual assaults that happened in Cairo last month.
In other news, I went to a concert for Omar Khayrat at the Culture Wheel and it was great. It started out slow but it picked up considerably. Khayrat is a great musician and a very talented pianist. The Oud solo was perfect. I just wish he had a guitarist in the band.
