Yeah... it's safe to say that I'm NEVER moving to the Mideast (which was kinda already the case, considering the state of their *** rights. :P)
Pakistan isn't Mideast, it's Central Asia.
And the weather in the north (i.e. the uncool areas) is much less hot.
Similarly, the weather in Jordan is pretty awesome, or so I hear. I had some Palestinean try to convince me to move to Jordan a lot in game for a while. He got me to look at universities outside the places I'd normally look and that lead to the whole Pakistan idea.
I agree that the *** rights over there are... awful, but to be honest, therë́'s bigger issues (like castes, or similar systems) and I don't ever want to touch those, not even with a 10ft pole. Then again, I was thinking the same way when I came to the UK and here I am, prodding the culture left and right when there's injustice. I just think it's nowhere near as dangerous here than it would be there, and I do not
To be fair, Pakistan is really progressive compared to most of the region about almost anything, especially in urban areas in the south/east. The main dangers for me if I went out in Western clothes (even the not so modest kind), for example, would be groping and pickpockets (because white people are rich, and I would be, too, relatively speaking), but I wouldn't get stoned or anything. But wtf, if I can run around in a shalwar kameez every day and that's socially accepted and doesn't make me stand out and is actually affordable, why the **** wouldn't I?
