I witnessed a very disturbing incident in Mall of the Emirates this week. A young girl who was wearing baggy trousers, a hooded sweat shirt, a baseball cap was asked to leave the mall by security because she was inappropriately dressed! Granted, she looked like “one of the boys” but I was horrified with the reaction of the security. I defiantly went through a phase in my life where all I wanted to be was a skater chic, and insisted on wearing boys clothes (much to my mothers disgrace) but it did not mean I wanted to BE a boy!
It made me think about what young people do in the Middle East if they are Gay. Are there any societies to help them and what is the law and implications?

What are your thoughts? Was the reaction of the mall cops correct?
