In this case, better to repair your stupid mind
Oi now , for one calling people on the Internet , ' stupid ' isn't fair , even if You have a limited vocabulary.

And yes , I have a female friend who lives in Saudi Arabia , she's about 15 and isn't allowed to go out , at all. Due to local laws , she will be able to go out when she's older she says , only with males though.

I'm not saying it's wrong , it's another Country , none of my business , if people want to run things like that , let them. It isn't harming any one and my friend says most people there don't mind it.

It's a different culture and they see freedom in a different way. They are not Americans.

Not being out of your house isn't any possible form of freedom, different culture or not, some things are just morally wrong.

Morality is subjective. Though I obviously disagree with it as well, I can't pass its immorality or injustice off as factual.

Women can go out by themselves in Saudi Arabia but there are some strict families that might not allow that.

Sorry I must have typed it wrong , what I meant to say is " ... I'm not saying it's right... " .

But yes , although I don't agree and I think many of us won't agree with the way things work there , they ain't harming anyone and we should just respect there culture , not agree with it , but Atleast respect it.

either you or your friend are lying, yes the situation for women in Saudi is bad but not to that degree, i have nieces of all ages and they spent all day yesterday between malls and restaurants getting ready for Eid, and this is the case for most families in Riyadh, arguably the most conservative city in the kingdom.
when will you people learn that Hollywood and late night shows are not a reliable source of information ?!

There are no basements so they only have to build the raft. This will rise immediately after the raft in done.
