During the holy month of Ramadan, one is supposed to be the best version of oneself.

Unfortunately, not all humans are perfect. So a lot of people cheat a little sometimes.

And then other people seem to think its their job to point out such flaws.

Which is of course highly hypocritical. People in glass houses or pots and kettles, you know?

I had a particularly infuriating conversation with this one dude last week. He was Muslim and fasting. But I met him in a bar. Granted, he was not drinking alcohol, but one isn’t even supposed to enter bars during Ramadan if one is Muslim. Also, he was hardcore hitting on me. Not overtly, but intensely. In a way that sort of made me uncomfortable. And then he went on to basically praise himself for never having had sex. (Because he’s not married and sex outside marriage is haram or forbidden.) And then he went on to be very judgmental about the fact that my boyfriend is not as celibate and drinks alcohol when it’s not Ramadan. And I just wanted to punch him.

I really don’t get why people continually think it’s ok to judge others. Especially in terms of religion. Just chill, ya’ll. Nobody is perfect.

    You should have punched him. Given him more to judge 😉

    Since he was flirting, it also sounds like he was trying to make himself simply seem better than your boyfriend to appeal to you, you know? It’s ridiculous but it seems like a common tactic. But how obnoxious.
