Getting shirty

It's those damn bachelors again! Not content with offending "families" by their single status, they're now putting on a strip show:

Families living close to their building complained to Gulf News that the bachelors have made it impossible for them to sit on their balconies. They also maintain that some bachelors make lewd comments at women who are standing on nearby balconies.

"They stand on their balcony semi-clad and ogle at women," said a resident who did not want to be named.


Back in the dusty depths of Bur Dubai, long before confinement in Cell Block G, a community of bachelors lived opposite in a kind of shanty building down a narrow lane. There were masses of them living in this shack-like structure, with its corrugated iron roof and general jumbled appearance. Often they wore lunghis or loin cloths with a shirt. Their air conditioning would have been limited and primitive, if they even had it at all.

They never ever stared at or harassed anyone. If spoken to, they were polite and respectful. They lived crammed into their tiny, grim building while brand new concrete "family" blocks sprung up all around. They were far nicer than the "families" that would often glare in a hostile manner. The bachelors were there first. They will not be there last. But where they will go is anyone's guess.

Its amazing how stuck up people get over the years. When my dad first got to the UAE, he was among many newly arrived bachelors and he never experienced such discrimination. He had a great time, as well as the other expats who were, as I've said before, pioneers in this new and foreboding land. Now there seems to be this huge backlash against people who, for some reason or another, do not have a wife. They assume men are all perverts until they get married - if a man is a pervert before he gets married - he'll stay a pervert long after he ties the knot.
So I repeat to those still trapped in the UAE - LEAVE WHILE YOU STILL CAN!

Crap like this is exactly why I left Dubai for North America. I really get a kick out of Arabs in North America whining about how they are being profiled and discriminated against while in their own lands, they can't extend some of the most basic courtesy towards others!

Pigeonholing all these men into bachelor-sized holes isn't that easy. You'll find that lots of them have wives and children; at their salary level they don't have a snowflakes's chance in hell of ever bringing their families over. So all they have to look forward over the next, ooh, twenty to thirty years is idling away at the balcony in their wife beaters.

Mind you, thanks to Dubai's progressive policies, their numbers are growing everyday, so 'families' watch out - soon they'll be all that's left of this hideous failed social engineering.

Ok so here's a poll:
Now that you know that bachelors are a reality and wont go away, if you could chose, what nationality of "bachelors" would you chose living around you:

1) (South) Indian bachelor hanging in lungi?
2) Arab expat bachelor usually smoking and oggling and thinking everyone can be asked for a price.
3) Chinese bachelor (they are growing).
4) Some sort of European bachelor.

A bachelor

In these cases, bachelor is shorthand for Subcontinent - its racism. If a house of white, twenty-something brits were living in these areas, I doubt anyone would be making complaints...

Sumo - funny you mention that. An oil company used to rent out the flat above my present one in Bur Dubai. It served as a furnished rotating residence, with various workers (usually white) moving in every two months.

On at least two occasions, the resident came home piss drunk, banging on doors and shouting for the occupants to 'bring out the women'.

Another night, two brits brought in at least five prostitutes from the Astoria. I bet there was good times to be had by all that evening.

But of course, these ones are morally a-ok because they're fully dressed.

Repression, holding it in, not being able to, or not being allowed to experience the fullness of the joy. This is the issue of the hour for Dubai to ponder over. All ailments, such as perceiving a semi clad sub continent young muscular tanned stalwart relaxing on his balcony as a pervert, or being an exhibtionist, or voyeur, these all emanate from a repressed personality/society.

Until Dubaians free themselves from the chains of repressed hidden sexual cravings, the illness, the stench will not be cured.

So I say this to the masses who claim to be Dubaiees; do not fear, loosen the tightness of narrow upbringing, let the sun shne in your heart, and make haste to enjoy the forbidden fruit.

Hail, the wonder and ecstasy of communion with the fair sex is yours to claim. No longer the subjection of the feverish excitement as the the manly force rears it's massive and throbbing head. Go forth and give it what it deserves, and let the women of Dubai have what they deserve. Annoint the luscious and expectant wide eyed fruit with utter and complete fulfilment.

All of Dubai must enjoy and feast in this pleasure to their heart's content. Those of a greedy and a more ravenous nature commence again, and partake in all those acts previously considered unspeakable. Let the projection extend to it fullest and firmest, and flaunt it for all to see, even at the expense of some of the women fainting at such a magnificent, and frightning and stimulating sight. And i say to the women of Dubai, take courage, discard years of shame, and dropping your gowns expose to the fullest those creamy lips of yours. Again, letting go, make haste to display the mound in all it's glory fully parted and ready for it's rightful ministrations. Let Dubai see the glory of the by now hot and shivering island from every angle. Let the voyeur across the road on his balcony have full view from behind and from the front. Do not be afraid to moan with excitement even as he watches. Let the excitement drive you mad with pleasure, give to the hungry lips of the mound what they are now screaming for.


Once Dubaians are free of the guilt, and of the repressed desire, Dubai will be reborn as a city where harmony, friendship and goodwill prevails.

People easily grow tired of the "idiots" they see on roads every day. Many develop road rage by giving in to their own frustration.

The only problem with giving in to road rage is that it can often get you into a lot of trouble.

Those who practice pretentious and outspoken modesty do so to mask a deep and unresolved hunger in their hearts.

They may fool themselves into thinking they have chosen the morally superior path and have subdued their urges, but alas, how wrong they are. It is these very people who are found looking furtively at the flesh of others when they happen to find themselves on a beach crowded with bikini clad westerners. It is these very people whose hearts pound with desire to feel the warmth of the well tanned flesh. Their imagination runs riot with visions of what they would like to do. They are not in control of themselves, these 'superior' beings, despite outward appearances.

Why such a state of affairs? It all stems from an upbringing where they have been taught to suppress natural desires, taught to be ashamed to think of the opposite sex, and led to believe it sinful to indulge in sexual gratification. Such is the path that leads to hidden demons that cannot be subdued, no matter how hard they try. The mere sight of even fully clothed persons of the opposite sex on a balcony is enough to send their minds into a frenzy of visions of unspeakable sexual acts. They have in effect no control over the pounding desires of their rod or mound.

I say yet again, even urge, to all Dubains, open wide, expose yourself fully and let go of the years of shame and suppression of natural urges. Start to feel the joy of freedom from the chains of self-imposed sin, as you begin to see the world with a new light, in which you are able to feel the joy of self fulfilment.

So let us begin, citizens of Dubai. Standing on the balcony, take the lotion, or coconut oil, or what is your wont, and apply it to your lean and supple body. Feel the sun warm your body as you gently massage the fullness of your body. Fear not if it rears it’s head, let it be, even if desires to stand proud. What you considered to be sinful before, look upon it with joy and a feeling of impending satisfaction. Do not fear the throbbing excitement raging inside your chest, give it full reign and abandon yourself to its mercy. Encourage the swelling to new heights and firmness with the rhythmic massage of your hands. If there is an onlooker over on the other balcony let them have full view of your lean, oiled body with the beauty that stand firm glistening with the fire of desire.

Letting go of the shame, be brave and raise your eyes to meet those of her standing on her balcony. Let this act of complete and utter exposure of you innermost desire be the panacea to the purging of years of suppressed longing. Be not surprised when her hands too move towards the golden crown of hers, for she too is burning with the torrid desire to feed the cries of the swollen mouth of the golden mound. Feel the storm of pleasure and excitement growing inside you as never before. See how she too, now possessed by the same excitement, now stands naked with her hands gently rubbing those lips to appease their hunger. Not to mention the beautiful orbs on which too stand the raisins of taught desire, wanting to be in your mouth. Be amazed at the arrows of ecstasy that shoot inside the bursting manhood of yours, even as the movement of her hands over the hot flesh quickens. Let you massage too quicken and give to the rod what it has longed for all these years of repression. Be not surprised if she now has in her hands a fully functioning artificial copy of you manhood in her hands. She too is purging herself of years of shame, as she open wide and exposes the glistening and moist flesh fully to your hungry gaze. You almost feel that it is your manhood she is holding, as she gently coaxes it between those hungry lips. Then begins the violent and regular thrusting of the hands in both balconies. Experience the joy as never before, as the pleasure reaches a crescendo inside your pulsating and throbbing body, now aflame with the explosion of the ecstasy. No more the shame, or pretentious modesty, only the joy.

And observe how differently you see the world now, as even you come across her coming down the stairs of the building where you both live.

So I repeat myself in saying to all Dubaians, free yourself of the past and expose your spirit to the joy. Hail to the new Dubai!

I wish to address the above posted "comment", post #2, which came from anonymous from North America. May I remind you "anonymous", that North America had quite a history with creating so-called "bachelors" from the Far East in the recent past. How was the West won?? How was the railway across the Rocky built?
This practice only stopped after the second world war, practiced in both Canada and United States.

Nowadays they just switch racial profiles and pick on the Middle Easterners.

Please do not criticize unless your past is immaculate and do not ever justify racial profiling.

Skcottub-

You got boring somewhere in between. And what previously aroused me now made me laugh my ass off!

But, just to address a serious point you make, you are quite right. Sexual desires are quite natural, which is why there is no concept of ascetics in Islam giving up marriage to repress a very natural human emotion. I believe even in Christianity, this concept of single priests and nuns is an alien concept that Christ (pbuh) never preached.

Finally, Skcottub is a female?!?

The reason people ogle isnt because they had a strict upbringing, but because they hadn't. Dirty, smelly and animal-like in their absense of restraint and manners, these "bachelors" need basic social etiquette training before being allowed to work in a city.

I wish that instead of hiring these baboons for cheap, the Arabs of Dubai extended these same jobs to Egyptians, Syrians, Turks, Algerians, Moroccans, Palestinians, etc and other direct neighbours who are suffering massive unemployment in their countries and who would contribute to a better society in Dubai.

But when hiring 100 indians is equivalent to 10 arabs, and 10 arabs to 1 westerner on the dubai market, things are unlikely to change. Better board that balcony up.

Hello again, Baboon

I am most definitely NOT an Arab, so you can quit the potty shots. Arrogant Saudis and drunken locals aside, Arabs in ME generally have good manners and display courteousness towards women and basic social etiquette. ( does not apply to vulgarly-dressed ukrainian/russian "bachelorettes" ) You will find them humbly lowering their gaze instead of popping their eyesockets in a wild stare of half-hunger, half-bewilderment. If you've casually met Egyptians, Lebanese, Syrians, Turks or Afghans, you will know what I mean.

I am not name calling. Take a walk through Deira on a Friday evening sometime and witness the peak of human social regression. Jungle fever if I ever saw one.

There is something distinctively wrong in the upbringing of these "bachelors", perhaps if their parents spent more time cultivating manners before sending these poor chaps off to be someone's cheap slave or property, without rights or a voice, perhaps then they could attain a life of dignity and respect, not just for themselves, but for those around them.

Which brings us back to the problem of poverty and overpopulation. Your children are not work-units, they are human beings. Quit the peasant mentality.

I sincerely think that Westerners make an issue where it suits their cause and conveniently look the other way when it puts them in the hot seat.

Why don't we ever see Westerners whine about how there is blatant racism in pay wages? A UK/US passport holder gets a better salary than anyone else. They will earn LUDICROUSLY more than their sub-continental equal. We hear all kinds of stupid excuses like "ooo the conversion rate to the Euro is higher and most of us europeans are under debt for paying for our education..." etc. What adds icing to the cake is that I have personally seen how non-whites are more educated and experienced than these armchair critics and pathetic upholders of labor rights!

I wonder if any of these champions of humanity havethe guts to just walk up to one of these workers and just hug them as a token of appreciation. God forbid, they will have their clothes stained! So, dear Westerners, are you willing to change the racist pay wages here in the UAE? Let's see you all put your money where your mouth is!

You are the typical white joker who is only good at rhetorical balderdash. Why don't you bloody stop drawing that fat salary you draw on a monthly basis and DEMAND equality in pay scales? I don't work for a local company, in fact, a MNC run by whites and the policies are STILL racist! So when I blame the Westerner I am not doing it out of idiosyncrasies, but because I know its you idiots who are putting in place these policies!

As for us subcons not looking after each other, shove that retarded nonsense! When was the last time you were polite to a worker or laborer? The least we do to our own is be polite to them. And had you any idea of our lifestyle you would shut your trap. We actually sit down and eat with them with our bare hands just as they do in the same places that is just worth a "chai" to you.

They pray shoulder-to-shoulder right beside us where there is no disticntion between the rich and poor. I have seen the Managing Director of a well-known local company (he is local, ofcourse) being led in prayer by a taxi driver! I have yet to see a white person being polite to a less fortunate subcontinentor. You guys can't be bloody polite to your own colored colleagues what the heck will you be polite to laborers for?

There are a thousand subcon run companies in Dubai who rip off their workers, underpay or not pay them at all.

The west is not without blame either.

All your comments are anit west when you so completely forget how your fellow muslims from the GCC treat subcons. Even the laws are racist. Who makes the laws here?? not the westerners.

And as to when was the last time I was polite to a labourer?? yesterday - I did give him a reach around - so I think that was decent of me....

P.S: you know what the funny thing is, you repugnant, madrasa educated, B.S spouting, intolerant, barbaric excuse for a human being?

The way you talk speak loads about your intolerance. It's rather amusing how you go around accusing Muslims of intolerance and in the same exhibit your own!

As for Westerners doing something about laborers, with all due respect, piss off! You are doing absolutely NOTHING for them. Like I said, put your money where your damn mouth is - stop drawing that fat ass salary check.

Start from yourself and where you can bloody make a change and maybe then someone will listen to your retarded holier-than-thou nonsense.

extract from the above link, says it all:

I do not think that it will be easy since so many of us do not want to and so many believe they are unique and the best in the world. I remember when I was in England last summer, arriving at the front door of the house where I was staying. I saw a little girl standing outside the house next to mine. I wondered if she would curse me or throw stones at me or whether she would just look away in disgust. Instead, she carried on watering the flowers in the small garden; then she looked up and waved at me, with a big smile on her face. Could that have happened here?

You have all missed the point entirely... This has nothing to do with race, creed, colour, etc...

What this is about is the fact that "uneducated people" (or as you call them, "labourers") usually stare women right out of their clothes...

The fact of the matter is that you do not get European, Arab, Chinese, African people doing this... it's only Indian and Pakistanis in 99% of the cases!!!

Call me racist if you like, but the facts speak louder than my words.

How many Europeans, Arabs, Chinese, Africans are arrested in Dubai each year for harrassment? How many Indians / Pakistani's are arrested each year for harrassment?

Don't believe me, just do a bit of research and then add your comments.

The biggest problem is that Asians generally suffer from an inferiority complex brought on by themselves... Grow up! Get over it! Stop whining! Nobody cares!

If you act like a "labourer", you'll be treated like a "labourer"...
