4 Things We Were Not Told Growing Up As Arab Women!

Published

on

The other day I stumbled upon a stand comedy video, she is an Arab woman called “Dina Hashem” and she shed the light on some other problems facing Arab women other than the ones media always discusses.

 

“Whenever people talk about the problem facing Arab women, I think it’s usually about the religion, or the laws or Trump now.. no one talks about the body hair” said Dina starting her segment.

She got me thinking of all the things we face while growing up as Arab women, all the things we should’ve been told but traditions got on the way, all the intimate details that we had to discover ourselves.

 

Here’s a trip down the memory lane with 4 things we’ve never been told but should have growing up:

 

 

Bodies:

Except that weird biology lesson in middle school, we have never had a proper talk about all the changes that our bodies go through during puberty. Period isn’t the only change our bodies witness, our bodies literally go through major changes from head to toe. No body prepared us properly for womanhood.

Lust:

With puberty comes lust; these foreign feelings that confuse you. If parents aren’t telling us about body changes, there is no chance they talked to you about feelings; and if they did talk to you about body changes, it is pretty rare for parents to explain the teenage emotional rollercoaster. Hence, you start experiencing Infatuation, longing, rage and sexual desires all on your own.

 

Sex:

This three-letter word is literally like a bomb, you can hear explosions in the background whenever you just try to ask what that word means. If you dare to ask your parents what “sex” ism you aren’t getting a clear answer, and you will have to go back to that middle school biology lesson, and of course, the internet!

What is virginity?

No body mentions anything about what virginity except that you should keep till marriage, even that biology lesson didn’t illustrate what it is. Never mind the fact that virginity is somehow a myth, at least they should have educated us about hymens.

Tell us what you had to discover for yourself growing up
