Hope for Saudi women

Did you hear the latest?

Women in Hafar Al-Batin, Saudi Arabia have been banned from using the library. Their male guardian has to take out books for them.

But not to worry – hope is on hand in the form of the findings of last year’s all-male conference on “women in society” pictured below.

Or maybe not…

    As Francis Bacon said, “Knowledge is power” so it’s best to keep women ignorant and helpless. They are going to have a hard time keeping up in the world arena if half their population is forbidden to learn. I wonder if they’ll try to ban them from the internet (yes I know it’s heavily censored but still…) next.

    Didn’t they all have to go through the unsacred passage the of the Vagina to be born and make it to the outside world, after gestating in woman’swomb..Hellooooooooooooooooooooooo how is that possible?. No man could possibly do this.. No man has ever produced any life, neither a patriarcal God..

    This was a similar case with Chief Illiniwek, however the problem is that there are no more surviving descendants of this tribe, and thus an anglo-saxon Biology professor with no Indian heritage began his own personal PC crusade and several liberal politicians (many of whom are either in jail or kicked out of office) jumped on board and threatened to withhold univ. funding. Hence no more symbol (I don’t refer to him as a mascot since he did not roam sidelines, was only seen for 3 minutes at halftime of games, and his routine & costume were created by the tribe, and the traditions were taught to the student who portrayed the Chief by Native Americans). The group who claimed it was offensive was lead by and comprised of non-native americans.

    And what was the conclusion of this all-male conference? How do you say “bitches be crazy” in Arabic?

    Is it me or are three of the four comments above total non sequiturs?
