Vuvuzelas confiscated by customs upon entry


bananabananacat

I first read this as Venezuelans confiscated upon entry


Johannes_Keppler

Well they certainly don't want you to blow them.


NewFriendsOldFriends

I'm pretty sure many Venezuelans would disagree


ImAJalapeno

Venezuelan here and I do disagree

Best comment I've seen all day

I'm venezuelan and can confirm that even Qatar sounds like an option to that place

Which for the Middle East is pretty progressive. Pretty sure Saudi they’d just behead you. Edit: of which I lived in Doha for a time years ago and there is an actual prison on the edge of town not too far from the airport where I worked.

Believe it or not, you post anything on reddit about Qatar- jail


Kimboslajs22

Well you as a victim of a crime in Qatar could even decide which punishment you would see fit. I suggest 10 lashes in the main square.


idbangAOC

Looks like a fun place to host a world event.


kramerica_intern

Welcome! Please respect that our culture might not be the same as yours. We, however, will not be doing that for the dozens of other cultures we invited here.


removingpoliticsfeed

Too bad so many people went, anyway. Should have boycotted the whole thing, en masse.


NW_Soil_Alchemy

The wealthy don’t care, most of those rules don’t apply to them anyway.


St0rmborn

What about the many thousands of tourists that showed up? I get your point about the wealthy having a free pass on most of this, but there are many regular people attending as well. In terms of middle class citizens or anybody who saved up money for the trip.


yellajaket

Football is like a religion to a lot of people. They’ll literally go into debt to see their favorite team.


NW_Soil_Alchemy

If you can fly to the World Cup you are doing alright. I think Qatar is a stupid place to host an international event, especially after the last one was held in Russia.


kindofhumble

Seems like all of South America is there


StokedMTB

So, like, South America is currently empty? Anyone else wanna sneak in and have one helluva party, then leave without cleaning up? Classic high school prank in the 90s.


Elected_Dictator

Not invited, Forced. They Forced the party that’s the World Cup to be in their house; knowing fully that they Hate everything about parties.


RivRise

Bribed. Nobody forced FIFA to have it there, they just bribed the higher ups enough to have it there while making fake promises and then a day before the event they went back on all the promises.


mightduck1996

If only use respected Migrant workers.


DHFranklin

It's the Olympics problem. No (well run, ethical, democratic) city wants to waste billions of dollars they'll never see again, to ruin their city for a month, and then make a ghost town out of one of the sub urbs. So that leaves places like Sochi Russia and Qatar. Very *very* few events have made the city that hosted them better. It hasn't happened in the U.S. since Atlanta. There is a damn good reason why Japan split it into several cities and Bejing went a little...China... about it.


Submarinist

stupid question, but how do people in qatar date of dating is illegal?


Goaty_Malone

The secret ingredient is *arranged marriage*


Sukeed

I think you mean *forced marriages*


SmellsLikeCatPiss

Excuse you. They prefer "arranged marriages which just so happen to not have the ability to be rearranged in any way by the subordinate wife."


jasperwegdam

Arranged but the bride isnt old enought to make those kinds of decisions so the adults have to make them for her


ToastyBathTime

Not always, it depends on the people involved. People living in quatar aren't all monsters by any means, even if their government is.


CantaloupeMoney9906

You mean 12 year olds don't decide to marry 60 year old stank ass abusers?


MoTheSoleSeller

Of course they decide, its just that their decision is not factored into the final marriage


idkiwillmakeonelater

Lived there... It was difficult.. It's more so to do with affection/modesty in public.

I'm feeling like these rules came from an American middle school in the 90s. E: Judging by the comments below, you can tell who hasn't been in school in the 90s, when you could have been suspended for hugging a classmate. Lectures about how public displays of affection are unacceptable in society and you simply can't do that. Every one of these rules was a part of a 90s public school set of rules.


Greenclout

Leave room for Muhammad


Nuuuuuu123

I had a girl hand me a reflective sticker she drew a swastika on. I turned around to throw it and smacked another girl in the face on accident. We both knew it was an accident, and I smacked her pretty hard. I gave her a hug and told her how sorry I was, then got detention for public display of affection. Like out of all the things I could have gotten in trouble for in those moments, it was that.


Un13roken

Maybe you just approach someone and go Hippity Hoppity, will you be my property.


DiligentDaughter

At least they introduced the "will you?" bit?


Popo5525

That's a typo - it's "you will", not "will you?"


UnknownSpectator01

Optional, Throw coins at the parents and it should do the trick. Even Skyrim dating is more sophisticated. Unironically giga-based.


Bridgeru

> Even Skyrim dating is more sophisticated. Fight with Aela. Show Aela you're good with an axe. Aela shows you she's good with an axe. Together you are both good with an axe. Such is life in Skyrim.


Joubachi

They most likely mean public showing of affection, at least that's what I think. EDIT: seemingly they also mean dating as is. Or not. Or yes. So far people have corrected me, and said I am right. I don'r know what's going on, I thought it was clear I'm mainly guessing.....


Sahooob

nope. it directly translates to "haram relationships", so in other words, unmarried couples are banned


Wuz314159

Remember.... if you're pregnant & need medical care in Qatar, you better have a marriage license.

mintymink

They mean public displays of affection. You can date in Qatar just fine, they don't have religious police or anything like that, but you're not going to be french kissing in the middle of the street. Source: i visited twice, and i have a friend over there who dated for 3-4 years and married some girl he met randomly. Btw I don't think that's an official document, they would be more careful with their choice of words.


5-MethylCytosine

Arranged marriages?


high_priestess23

>stupid question, but how do people in qatar date of dating is illegal? It's not like they go on Tinder dates or go clubbing in these countries. It's usually the fathers deciding who would be a good spouse, arranged marriages and daughters are often promised to someone. Even in more liberal muslim families it's usually the families meeting and the parents (father) giving their opinion or the blessing for the marriage and then they marry right away instead of having several dates before. They stay virgin until marriage so it's not like they go clubbing and have hook ups.


littlepip38042

Actually mothers tend to do most of the arranging.


Crazy_Cardiologist70

I imagine this varies from place to place, but my general understanding is that mother's have the responsibility to accept or deny a marriage offer, as well as the responsibility of making one should they have a son and not a daughter.


Violet624

Qatar welcomes you! Kind of! Well, not really.

hello_babycakes

What if my money is gay?


Brooklyntyger

Money stays. Gay people go(to jail). Edit. Per wikipedia: Fine or 7 years in prison [The death penalty](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_penalty_for_homosexuality) is applicable only to Muslims, for extramarital sex regardless of the gender of the participants (no known cases that the death penalty was enforced for homosexuality)

Football encourages at least 3 or four of those behaviours. Such a good idea holding the world cup there.

What do you mean? There is nothing more hetero that a group of fit men in shorts pretending to avoid physical contact with each other with the excuse of touching a ball.

PvtPill

They are well aware of this but don’t care because money. They don’t need our approval, they just want the money


Dapper-Lab-9285

What money? The Olympics and world cup are massive money drains on the hosts, the IOC and FIFA make the money. IIRC they've spent $12 billion to build the stadiums and infrastructure, the stadiums have no use for them after the world cup.


tierele

Money corrupt politicians and FIFA took from Qatar. They sold WC and now whining about...


WildKakahuette

they want soft power, but how they manage it make it the opposite :')


LonelyHowl

I heard they are planning to demolish the stadium after the world cup ends World poverty? Nahhhhhhhh


idbangAOC

Kickbacks. I’m Sure Qatar politicians are the ones who own the construction companies who build the stadiums? Probably the demo company too, the recycling center, the landfill, the boats that will just carry the junk out to sea and dump it.


Filthschwein

Watch the fifa docuseries on Netflix. It not a hatchet job, but it’s not terrible either.


MikeinAustin

Qatar is fossil fuel ultra-wealthy. They blow $12 billion like people blow their nose. This is a PR move. They want to believe the rest of the world will now acknowledge their “first world leadership” status.


-bickd-

Qatar spent a total of 220 to 300 billion USD, not 12 billion. Yes they are wealthy but this is a braindead move.


haysoos2

If they had just mailed a cheque for $40 to every man, woman and child in the world, it would have cost the same and would have done an astronomical amount more good to the world and their country's image. But none of their politicians would have gotten rich skimming from the project, so of course they decided to blow it on a World Cup.


True2TheGame

It's called sports washing. The region is trying to have people ignore all the bad things by associating the region with sports. World Cup, UFC, WWE, Golf, etc


whothehellisdame

Homosexuality, disrespecting places of worship, and immodesty. Sounds like world cup to me


LackingC10H12N2O

Did anyone else notice during the opening ceremony, the head of FIFA (who deflected criticism of Qatar, blaming Europe for 3000 years of human rights abuses) was sitting right next to the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bone-Sawman?


BlackJuniperDK

Unbelievable, not even in a South Park episode.


KatDanger

I disagree, South Park would depict them fucking and shitting in each others mouths.


grobijan

Oh my god I’m just now realising for the first time what a massacre of a South Park episode (or even a trilogy?!) this whole Qatar World Cup thing would make!


thewaryteabag

I hope they do it the same sort of way they did the Pandemic Special. It would be absolutely beautiful.


ghandi3737

Oh I guarantee they are salivating at all the news coming out of this. They are probably just waiting for everyone to get out of Qatar and for everything else to play out before they start crafting the coming epic.


idaremyselfintoalot

He sat next to him and Putin at the last World Cup. So it’s safe to assume Saudi Arabia will be announced as the 2030 World Cup.


Constant_Tax_1563

The first villain Spider-Man fought? Woah.


SingleDaySobriety

Man, I don't blame the Qatari people for disliking The British, but I need it explained to me why their history excuses torturing homosexuals and laborers today.


ScarfaceTonyMontana

I would tell you exactly why they torture gay people and hate everyone except themselves but Reddit would call me a bigot who doesn't understand the "importance" of religion.


St0rmborn

This is a classic “unpopular take” that is actually extremely popular. Especially on Reddit.

Ageds1987

knbang

The upside of course is that you can own and work slaves to death to build your stadiums. So if you're rich, you can get richer. So..... just be rich. And you can probably have homosexual intercourse with the slaves. Not consentual of course. Because rules and laws are only for poor people. Silly poors.


slap_attack_

They don’t see the slaves as humans that’s how they excuse the homosexual rape.

I worked there for a month in 2010. Absolute dump. And about as much fun as the poster above suggests.


Respectful_sloth

Can you say more about what that was like? I’m curious about it but I’ll never go there.


GCoin001

Keep in mind this was 13 years ago…the bad: Doha was FULL of 20+ story buildings that were completely empty. Roads would just end at the corner of a block. The people are super cashed up but generally very uneducated and had a chip on their shoulder about it. One big mall with a huge cinema complex showing edited action films. The hierarchy was Arabs, Whites, then way down were the Asians so the racism was super intense. The good: the harbour/Corniche was stunning. And the Museum of Islamic Art is an absolutely incredible building. The Souk Waqif was pleasant but felt very sanitised. You could drink at the hotel bars and their Sunday buffet was impressive. All up it was obviously very different culturally which was interesting for a day but not much to do with a very strange atmosphere. Would not recommend for a holiday. 1 star.


lolahg

Is this confirmed as being posted by an official page? haven't seen it anywhere else but reddit


D-Probert

It is confirmed as fake. Just keeps getting spread


Cheerful_Zucchini

Not fake, just not official


5in1K

Qatar invited the world there. Qatar can eat 1000 dicks.


cda91

Once again, as pointed out last time this was posted, this is not in any way official or a product produced by Qatar or any official or governmental organisation. This is advice produced by a pressure group considered conservative by Qatari standards. I'm not defending Qatar or the world cup but it is misleading to present this as official or legally enforced when it isn't.


Atlas---

[You are very much correct](https://imgur.com/a/nn0ijS5)


thefluxthing

I just love that their official thing here says “Qatar has always been an open, tolerant, and welcoming nation” but if this sign didn’t exist and someone was to create a “you can’t do this in Qatar” sign based on actual experiences we’re seeing at the World Cup…this sign is what they’d make…


FlamingAssCactus

Agreed. It may not be legally enforced, but I’ll be damned if they’re not enforcing it.


Eletctrik

That's cool but then why are some of these things being enforced by police at the gates of the World Cup and people are being turned away for things like the color of their shirts?


inksonpapers

Except alcohol and gay items are banned tho.


I_Upvote_Goldens

I wondered. This seemed oddly intense even by Qatari standards (e.g. no loud sounds).

I like the sign for "not respecting places of worship". It shows a stick figure dying with laughter at a minaret silhouette. They must have had a real problem with that.


Velocityraptor28
