European women and some Turkish men - How they percive us and why
There are many Turkish men who seem to view European women in general in a very unfavourable way e.g having loose morals, one of the politer expressions I have heard. I'm sure many of us will have either experienced for ourselves or have heard stories that support this statement. My question is why? what have we done to deserve this percieved reputation. Turkey is a male dominated conservative society and I am sure that we must be very different to how they expect women to be but that alone of course could not warrant their attitude towards us. I find it very insulting that just because I am European that I would be automatically assumed by these men to be like that. Harassment and more worryingly sexual harassment is on the increase and if that is how we are being thought of then we should all be concerned.
