For two Egyptian women, being in a relationship without risking their lives meant traveling all the way to Canada. Soon after they arrived there, Miral Mokhtar and Nouran El Gendy decided to share their story on Facebook and announced their plans to get married.  While their post did not grab negative attention when it was first shared back in July, it has recently resurfaced online and stirred controversy among the Egyptian community and Arabs in general. Earlier this week, they noticed the post being shared multiple times, and they subsequently received hateful messages as well as murder and rape threats.
