The report warns that allowing women to drive would ‘provoke a surge in prostitution, pornography, homosexuality and divorce’.
Within ten years of the ban being lifted, the report’s authors claim, there would be ‘no more virgins’ in the Islamic kingdom.
Irritating. What the hell will they do when they run out of virgins?
Homosexuality? What the fuck?
And how will the women driving cause an increase in pornography? It's the men who drive to go get porn. The Islamic culture already leads the world in consumption of donkey porn and similar things. I don't think they have much to lose.
women will all drive away, and all the men will have left is each other. makes sense.
Umm, if the women all went away, I'd fall back on Rosy, not start having sex with other men.
Seriously, Islam is run by the same sort of closet-cases as Ted Haggard and Marcus Bachmann, isn't it? How else do you explain the way that they think all other men would go run off and be gay, if there weren't strict laws against it?
I don't know the answer to that. I'm not sure anyone really 'runs' islam. Don't take my word, I don't know the truth of that.
Come to think of it, women drive in America, and we have gays here. Lots of them. Divorces, too. And porn. And where are all the virgins? Maybe that's true! I bet even Michele Bachmann drives.
Hell yeah, I'd lay a patch on my way out of town.
This may be true but I don't trust the Daily Mail. It has 3 times as many complaints against it upheld by the Press Council as any other "news"paper - and the Press Council rejects over 90 % of complaints on "technicalities" so that is something of a record.
OK, here is associated press report, A report given to a high-level advisory group in Saudi Arabia claims that allowing women in the kingdom to drive could encourage premarital sex, a rights activist said Saturday.
bbc.com I will try to avoid the daily mail. But if it's in the bbc, we can probably trust it. The report contains graphic warnings that letting women drive would increase prostitution, pornography, homosexuality and divorce.
The car gives them the means to escape, but driving wouldn't lead to divorce if these guys weren't such assholes.
Well now, hang on. I freely stipulate to the idea that all female drivers will instantly lose their virginity, but surely they intend to have a lower age limit on driving. There will be plenty of nine-year-old virgins for the men, just like the one The Prophet married. And anyhow, if you want access to a bunch of virgins, all you have to do is blow yourself up in a crowded market. I just don't see the problem here.
Good points. Also I'm assuming that cars in Saudi Arabia mostly have automatic transmissions. That might be a concern here as well. Stick shifts can be so complicated and awkward.
