Drive and Die? Leading Saudi Cleric Warns Women That Driving Will Result In Damage to Ovaries and Birth Defects

saudi-sheikh-300x169Al Arabiya is reporting a bizarre warning issue by a leading Muslim cleric that women who drive risk damaging their ovaries and pelvises and birth defects. The announcement from Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Luhaydan comes as women continue to demand to be able to drive in the Kingdom and international pressure is growing for Saudi to make fundamental reforms. Judging from today’s other Saudi story, I thought the greatest danger was the religious police on the roads.

A judicial and psychological consultant to the Gulf Psychological Association, al-Luhaydan warned that “Physiological science and functional medicine studied this side [and found] that it automatically affects ovaries and rolls up the pelvis. This is why we find for women who continuously drive cars their children are born with clinical disorders of varying degrees.” The real purpose appears evident in his observation that women who are demanding to drive are placing “reason ahead of their hearts, emotions and passions.” Clearly, he believes they need to think not with their emotions and passions but with the ovaries and pelvises. Another voice of reason among the Kingdom’s clerics. It is rather chilling to see a cleric serving as both a “judicial and psychological consultant.”

This is a new approach since previously the warning was the women driving would lead to fewer virgins in the Kingdom. Now they will be damning their children to defects and subjecting themselves to rolled up pelvises.

  1. Of course it will… And being raised in a culture bias…. Is a form of a defect anyways….

  2. Why can we not have a gas station in town that sells gas and oil from a non muslim territory, like Norway or some place? To subsidize these tentheads is a bit much.

  3. Our very own American Taliban has said and did the very same things as this jerk….

  4. Well I’m sure this is nothing selling a few more advanced weapons systems to the country that produced most of the 9/11 hijackers couldn’t solve.

  5. Gee, I wonder what bouncing around in the back of a taxi cab does to the pelvis and ovaries?

    Oh, that’s right, logic eludes Saudi clerics. Oh those Saudi men, they’re SO emotional.

  6. In my view, motor vehicles cause far less damage to the ovaries and pelvises of Saudi women than do Saudi men.

  7. I suppose it is a good thing the Sheikh never met Danica Patrick or my friend Sabrina Jackintell. Or perhaps Shirley Muldowney.

    He would be trying to explain how the big lump on his shoulder is actually his butt after the ladies kicked it there.

  8. maybe his mother should have been driving then we wouldnt have to read about this drivel he is spewing its amazing to me the hatred some of these phony muslims have for women. its as if they dont understand or maybe hate the fact that they themselves are unable to give birth. the fact that a woman gave birth to them plays doesnt matter one width. the fact that they will not have any children without women seems to escape the peas they have for brains

  9. I can’t believe these guys are our biggest ally in the Arab world.

    Gene: lol

    Darren: Seems like Danika’s made a valid contribution to the language. Look for female athletes to use that at the upcoming Olympics

  10. raff,

    Over the weekend, I read a story about “why teens are abandoning Facebook”. Your old joke reminded me of it. It has several screen captures of conversations, usually where parents interjected something. One was where a kid asked his friends “Where was it and how old was I when you met me and what did you think?” A fairly innocuous and common kind of teenager question. As you’d expect, a bunch of his friends said stuff like “7th grade science class and I thought you were cool” etc. Then dad chimed in. He said, “I met you nine months before you were born. I took you on a date and you went home with your mom.”

    The next response was “Your dad just won the Internet.”

  11. The U.S. backs:

    Saudi Arabia — from whence came the bin Laden family & those 19
    young men who are still blamed for 9/11

    Egypt — second largest recipient of U.S. foreign aid

    Israel — responsible for the on-going Holocaust of Palestine

    Kuwait — run by pedophiles

    Thanks, Bronco Bama.
