You inferred the specific nationalities, I could have been talking about Mexicans in my specific American context, but you jumped straight to the middle-east.
This is off-topic anyway, its seems you have been doing this a lot lately, doing off-topic defense for middle-easterners. Its like a weird little obsession of yours lately.
Not talking about terrorists etc, specifically.
But, the foreigners coming into the west do tend to be more religious, more familial, and more traditional than the native population; which is sufficient for my point.
The weakness of western values is the fertile soil underlying its behavior, that there is some weakness in middle easterners of the same generation is nice and all, but the middle-east isn't exactly known for being the harbingers for the SJW movement.
Quit trying to make every thread into your personal diatribe about how enlightened the middle east was, is, and will be and how said regions continue to be only insignificantly different from the west (while implying that they are inherently superior and the west robbed them of their rightful place in the world).
Its becoming a tiresome exercise to get into ad verbosium
sermantical debates with you surrounding your soft-variant of post-colonial grievances.
Why does Serena seem to have support of clear violations of the rules that no other sports person has? She was clearly in the wrong. Are illustrators or media personal meant to look the other way?
I suppose my answer to this is that we've come to a place where certain charges are immediately determined to be valid purely in virtue of their being levied.
Think about it, a ton of the guys accused in the #MeToo movement have not been, and may never be, tried in a court of law, but they have already been ruined by the mere accusation. Its not that they are guilty or not guilty, but the seriousness of the charge in the public's opinion. Crucify Him! Crucify Him!
It doesn't matter if Serena was in the wrong, if there is any conceivable way the improper power dynamics existed in this scenario, then the cause could theoretically be placed on the official. Was he a man? Yes
, thus that he was sexist is automatically probable given the dynamics of power imbalances and institutional oppression of women in history (all leftists ideas FYI).
The charge could be enough to end his career and it is enough to bring support in for Serena from the world of outrage.
