    men from most non Western cultures dont respect women as much?

    I dont identify as a "feminist" but liberals are shooting themselves in the foot by standing up for female rights yet constantly turning a blind eye to the fact that men from certain cultures (e.g. Arabic, Eastern European) are more likely to treat women in a certain way and harass them which "feminists" get up in arms about.

    Thoughts? Again no racist, but I live in a part of town which has a lot of foreign guys who've clearly moved into the UK recently (you can tell by their strong accents plus the fact not a lot of them have jobs as when I'm walking to uni during the 9 to 5 they are lounging around smoking). My female housemates and I are sick of getting sexually harassed, followed down the street, commented on and the police doing sweet F all about it.

    i thinks it's because they come from minority groups and that by saying that it's because of their culture (i.e. apparently in some places a woman can be charged with adultery for being raped) people will feel as if you're 'attacking' that minority group.

    TL;DR political correctness
