Now, Really!!!

Now, Really!!!

Saudi Arabia definitely has a problem with its women. They aren’t allowed to go out unless they are covered head to toe. They must have a male guardian to do almost anything and must get permission from this guardian to study, work, travel, marry, or seek healthcare. The guardian has the authority to sell them into marriage. Now, of all things, women want to drive. Heavens, how inappropriate!

Of course the government doesn’t want to allow this. It would be the slippery slope to all sorts of freedoms. When would it end? In support of the government’s opposition to women drivers, I’d like you to meet Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Lohaidan. He is a Saudi Arabian cleric. (Note: The definition of “cleric” is “a member of the clergy”. Remember that; it’s important.) He has determined that driving is unhealthy for women and could cause them to be unable to bear children. According to Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Lohaidan, driving a car causes the pelvis to be pushed forward and thus damages the ovaries, which may make it difficult or impossible to become pregnant.

Our clergyman is not a doctor of any sort and has done no experiments or studies to provide a basis for his statements. He has no facts of any kind that would suggest the validity of this line of thinking, but maybe in Saudi Arabia that’s not so important, especially if you want to keep women from doing what you don’t want them to do.

Oddly, he does not report any dangers from being a passenger. This malady affects only drivers. Also, women who absolutely must drive for some governmentally valid reason are likely to be safe from becoming barren. Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Lohaidan states that the reason so many children have medical problems is because their mothers drove cars. (Oh, so it’s not the difficulty obtaining prenatal care? Whew!)

Well, I guess all the American women who have perfectly healthy children every day should be thankful they don’t live in Saudi Arabia where this disease seems to be so prevalent. And maybe it would be a good thing to slow down the birthrate in Saudi Arabia anyway, just until they get the women sorted out.
