The WSJ has a story about some "secular" Egyptians fearing they would lose their right to drink beer, get tattoos or wear skimpy clothes (read excerpts below). Just yesterday we had a post about a "galabeyya party" at one of Cairo's bars to celebrate Morsi's win.
I have mixed thoughts about these "cool" actions. I understand there is a slippery slope here as once the Islamists ban beer, why not ban movies, music, nonreligious books, etc. I also like the fact that these "seculars" are doing something about it (not just bitching and moaning as they are actually planning a demonstration).
However, my mother told me when I was a child, "Do whatever you want as long as you don't hurt yourself, hurt someone else or we have to pay for it," unfortunately these "Beer Demonstrations" will affect the secular movement (of course I'm exaggerating, but still) as people in Egypt will associate seculars mainly with what is perceived by most as the secular's anti-religion agenda.
So, my advice to the "cool" kids, go back inside from the heat, drink your cold beer and don't be a diversion.
