Just when you think that the world couldn't get any stupider

this guy opens his mouth

Women should not be driving because it can affect their ovaries and pelvises, according to a Saudi sheikh, seeking to explain the country's ban on female drivers.
Sheikh al-Luhaydan, a judicial and psychological consultant to the Gulf Psychological Association, told Saudi website sabq.org that "physiological science and functional medicine [found] that it automatically affects ovaries and rolls up the pelvis.
"This is why we find for women who continuously drive cars their children are born with clinical disorders of varying degrees."
Rest of story here


I don't drive so my pelvis must be fine but most of the women here must have rolled up pelvises. What is that like, girls?

So I wonder how sitting in the driver's seat is physiologically different than sitting in, say, the passenger's seat. And why... oh, never mind... sigh.

How come men are unaffected by these dangers?

Our penises act as a counter-balance.

Could this be the same guy who said women aren't as good at golf because they have breasts (^ which coincidentally act as counter-balance(s))?

Re: Just when you think that the world couldn't get any stupider

Well, this isn't too surprising in the Middle East. They're not exactly progressive when it comes to anything sex or gender related. Don't forget those poor guys who were deported for being too attractive. And there was an incident lately where a woman won an election, but then was disqualified from actually taking office because she was too cute.

I remember seeing an article a while back, I forget which country it involved, where women were banned from television all together. The government spokesman said something like, "Sure, guys would like to see women on TV, but what if it was their wife or sister?"

I think it will be a while before Women's Lib blooms in the Arab Spring, but it's coming. There was a story a few months ago where a female blogger from the Middle East posted a nude picture of herself to shake up the patriarchy. Rock the Casbah!

With views like that i can understand why he would not want any woman around him to have access to a quick and easy way to get away from him.

Let's hope ridiculous argemnts like this are the last ditch attempt to cling to the old order when change is clearly on the horizon.

It isn't the fact that women aren't allowed to drive that's surprising, at least to me. It's this guy's bizarre justification for it that blows my mind.

(Sorry, would explain in more detail, but I need to go straighten my pelvis.)

Re: Just when you think that the world couldn't get any stupider

Well, my Uncle Joe used to say (and probably still does, for all I know) that women shouldn't be allowed to be president because they might start a war when it's "that time of the month."

Re: Just when you think that the world couldn't get any stupider

reading this article I get to suspect that these cords that keep the traditional Saudian headdresses in place are so tight that in some cases they apparently cut off the blood flow to the brain. Dangerousely unhealthy, I daresay, though without immediate consequences on fertility.
(the same might go for some hat bands on westerners as well, though)
