Okay it didn’t, but the headline sprang to mid whilst I have been reading about how Saudi women may well be able too drive for the first time in 2018.
This is obviously a great thing for them and hopefully a small step in the battle for their emancipation because they really are treated quite woefully. I was going to try something serious on the matter but if you have read my blog for any length of time you will know that it is unlikely for that to happen.
Instead I did a little reading on the buffoon clerics who have such an influence in the Kingdom and there really is some rather funny stuff they have said. It would be funnier if it were not so scarily sad but it did make me chuckle nonetheless.
A couple of years back one chap insisted that driving would could lead to homosexuality. I would suggest that a husband with a big itchy beard was more than likely to do a much better job than driving a little Nissan Micra to the shops to pick up a bit of shopping.
It could also lead to men and women having inappropriate relations at traffic lights, petrol stations and car washes apparently. Just how horny must these people be to stop at a red light on the way home from work and before you know it you’re getting a hand-job from the woman in the Toyota Prius pulled up next to you? All I want on the way home from work is a Kentucky Fried Chicken family bucket and some stretchy trousers.
It does perplex me how most of the things these Clerics suppose will happen if a woman drives a car tend to end up in Sex. They feel a bit rapey to me you know. I’d probably not want them looking after my kids so me and the missus could pop to the pub for a drink and a bite to eat.
Oh wait, there’s also a fellow who believes that giving them the right to drive will mean the beginning of a slippery slope to depravity until there are no more female Virgins left in the Kingdom. I do wonder whether he knows what driving actually is. Maybe he’s getting it confused with an Orgy? Could happen I guess.
You’re going to love this one.
Apparently driving causes women to assume a certain position and it damages their ovaries and can make them barren. I have no comment on that, not needed really is it.
There are so many more ludicrous assertions these savages have espoused, and the more I read the angrier I get and whilst I don’t intentionally like to offend people I would give anything to be able to offend them. But alas all I can do is mock. Makes you think that we really haven’t come that far as a species doesn’t it.
Anyway, think that’s enough of that, I need to pop to the shops for some bread and milk and who knows, I might end up in a transgender threesome if I’m lucky…
