Reading the news, I read that a British woman and an Irish man had been sentenced to three months in prison in
for engaging in sexual activities inside a Dubai taxi. Reading the article, the reporter
says this is the latest case in which Westerners have fallen foul of the United
Arab Emirates' decency laws, and it highlight the “cultural differences”
between the UAE and the West.
What nonsense! The couple was caught having sex in a taxi and I know for a fact this is not allowed in the
U.K. so how is this case a “difference”
in culture? Personally, I feel it’s stupid that every time some Westerners get
into trouble overseas, the Western press almost always blame the host country
for the problem. Having sex in a taxi is illegal in both the U.K and the U.A.E,
so if anything this jail sentence is a sign that the two countries have
something in common.
Yes, it means 2 fools get thrown in jail but this was something that was going to happen even in the U.K right? So why not celebrate it? It’s far better than causing a problem over differences that does not exist.
