I know "Islamic culture" is a broad term, but I don't think that really matters in this context.

Even as a Muslim I would say Western culture 100%

At least that way they'd have a choice of what to do, whether they'd want to pursue their religion or live freely or fly bacon

Western culture of course. Women actually have autonomy in the West, whereas they're in complete subjugation to men in countries like Saudi Arabia and Sudan.

'Islamic culture' isn't a thing really. Culture =/= religion, it's like saying 'Christian culture' or 'Jewish culture', countries, policies, and restrictions in cultures are oppressive, much of the time with religion taken out of context, so I find this question to be an extreme over simplification.

Religion and culture are inseparable. Culture isn't a thing, its a whole spectrum of different things, of which religion is one of them. And in Islamic countries, Islam is a very big part of the culture, and even if it is in varying forms, it's values are very similar.

It shouldn't be, but the votes which disagree tells you that apparently, to some people, it is.

Islamic culture is, of course, much better for women.

This is dumb and doesn't really mean ****. Those Muslims are coming here for the most part because of the economic benefits same reason why anyone comes. I always lol how some Brits deluded themselves into thinking anyone is come here because of cultural reasons, for the most part this is bull****.
Calm down, get rid of the swear words and try and make a coherent response next time.

How old are you? Or are just a puritan? Swearing shouldn't distract from the main point of my post.

(irrelevant video)
I love swearing but there's a context for everything. It's too late to go into another islamic debate right now anyway.

The amount of muslims desperately trying to get into this country should tell you the answer.
Coming for economic benefit =/= agreeing their culture is better. I wonder why loads of westerners go to rich Arab countries. Is it for the culture?

I don't hear many people who think Muslims come to this country for the culture. If they did then they wouldn't be such a problematic demographic.

They're 'desperately' wanting to come here for economic opportunities.

Because Saudi Arabia really is an accurate representation of what Islam means for women.

Well actually, yes. In the Middle East, women are treated very similarly to how they are in Saudi Arabia.

Western Islam is another matter, but even then, generalised Western culture is more beneficial to women than Islam is, generally speaking.

Western culture, not because Islam is evil, but because Western culture is inclusive and can fully encompass Islamic culture. A woman can come to the West, be a Muslim and fully live in accordance with Islamic law, however a woman can't live the Western lifestyle within an Islamic society. In the West you can choose.

Exactly, in the West if she wants to get drunk, have sex and take drugs, she can, but she doesn't have to if she doesn't want to.
