Off blog themes and controversy

The recurrent themes on this blog would not only be Pearl’s progress but also Libyan women. The Libyan woman is a mysterious entity. How does the Libyan woman cope under the forces of globalization, the encroachment of western values on Libyan culture , the conservative society she hails from, the secular mode of government she is under and the complete freedom it grants her, and how does she reconcile all that with her Islamic heritage?

The Libyan woman is sometimes a mass of contradictions. This is not going to be a policy essay. There are enough political blogs out there so I would not want to bore any prospective readers with the same theories.

What I would like to brainstorm and recount is how is the Libyan woman balancing between the East and the West, her dreams and aspirations as a female and her body and soul, because to alter (plagiarize ahem) Farooha’s words in response to this question

“G) Why do you like talking about matters known to be taboo to the female Saudi lot, like relationships with the other gender, and sex?

Because, I am human! I may be a virgin, but heck I got a libido.”

Bravo Farooha, I will say the Libyan women may have to be chaste but they do have a libido …

If you want to share your story of whatever nature – even gossip at work- dear Libyan ( others are welcome as well) I’m prepared to post it and be discreet about its owner , it would only be for the edification of our readers, plus a problem shared is a problem halved. The readers could comment and suggest advice perhaps. I can see it becoming a successful ‘aunt agony’or 'dear Abby' online. Plus it would titillate our senses as we all have a little voyeuristic side to our personality.

So let the letters come in, alternatively my email is

I really would like first to congratulate you on your interesting blog ,and it's a pleasure to make my first comment on the first ever Libyan Blog I visit.

Second:you idea is very good ,I guess it could encourage Lybian female bloggers or even Libyan female internet users to post their ideas about this subject ,their experiences & views..etc ,taking advantage of the freedom which blogs are offering is very good method to fight the subdual we suffer in our arabic countries.
