Half a Starbucks

Post by Mark

I was at the Kuwait University today in Shuwaikh doing something for work. When I was done I passed by the cafeteria which to my surprise turned out to be segregated in half, I can’t believe they did that. The funniest part is the Starbucks which is located right in the middle of the dividing wall. So, what you get now is a Starbucks divided in half, half for guys half for girls. In the picture you can notice the white wall on the left, thats the wall that cuts Starbucks in half. I was standing in the male side of Starbucks when I took this picture. Really stupid.

    Ummm, the Shuwaikh campus cafeteria has been like this for years.
    Even when I took my SATS and TOEFL in like 98, the KU campus we took them at had a segregated McDonalds.

    Segregation is not the solution .. education is. And since this is taking place in a University… well .. I am speechless.

    First of all Mark, let me say I like your blog a lot. You really catch the funny/stupid side of life in Kuwait. As a Kuwaiti, I like seeing a another perspective of my country. In regards to the segregation in KU, its just plain S T U P I D!!! I went to the Technology College for a year and it was segregated. Guys and girls still flirted and sneaked off. It just doesn’t work. Whats going to happen when they go off and start working? They’re going to have to deal with the opposite gender. I just hope they don’t start segregating the workplace a well. We should be moving forward guys not back! This is a lame interpretation of Islamic values, it just encourages what they are trying to prevent. Sorry for ranting guys.

    Peace :)
