Mustafa, the "man"
What I found interesting in the reading so far is that of how women respond to Mustafa. I’m sure we’ve all met a guy who comes off the same as Mustafa, but have that many women committed suicide in today’s world? I can definitely understand women going into a depression, but three women having the same consequences…not that just doesn’t make sense. Are women that self conscious that they can’t accept themselves for who they are unless their significant other approves of them? Although I don’t understand this concept, I can still see it relate in today’s society. There are women out there who will always strive to be someone who they really are not just to try impress some man. How did society get to the point where women have become completely dissatisfied with themselves that they will go to certain extremes to try and make it different? If Mustafa would have reacted differently, or would have at least tired to care about the women he was with, I think that he might have been able to save some lives and even want to stay in Europe. On the other hand, I think that Mustafa should feel guilty about the deaths of the women and that because of that, it shaped him into the man that he is today. Because the reader doesn’t know how Mustafa died, it could be possible that he did kill himself has a result of everything that he done in past years.
