Saudi Muslim males experts at keeping women in their place
It’s not enough that Saudi men cut off their daughters’ genitals so they cannot enjoy sex. It’s not enough that women are forced to wear bags over their heads to prevent rape. It’s not enough that women have to have permission from a male family member to venture outside the home.
In Saudi Arabia, rape victims are punished and a woman’s word in court is only worth half of a man’s word. It’s not enough that daughters are by law given less than sons at the time of an estate settlement. It’s not enough that women are denied health care for lack of female medical staff. Let a woman die rather than have a male doctor touch her, that’s the Saudi way.
Those Saudi women must be kept in their place, and one of the ways that Saudi Muslim men do that is to prohibit women from driving. Can’t have women going anywhere they like, when they like, you know. That’s way too radical!
The Saudi laws are all based upon the Koran – and who are we mere infidels to be telling the Saudis how they should treat their women?
Besides… we need the oil so we don’t want to insult them by suggesting that they are doing anything wrong.
And when it comes to what young Barbadian Muslim women are taught in the Al-Falah Islamic School, well, who are we to complain about that either?
