Been asking myself since reading this: http://saudiwoman.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/whats-front-page-news-in-saudi-arabia/. You see, as a woman, as a mom who breast fed her children- I find it has an undercurrent of sadist tendencies. Comte Donatien Alphonse François de Sade would be proud. And because it comes out of the mouths of men who ‘are suppose’ to be something like Islamic bull-horns; I’m really having problems understanding how they can even recite verses of the Qur’an five times a day.

So, why are they still talking? Because the next one that stands up and holds up his finger with the latest ‘twist’ to this god-forsaken travesty of a ‘fatwa’ to say that women should also do x, y, and z in order to be allowed to work, in order to live, in order to exist- I’ll have a ‘kiniption’!!! The whole earthquake fatwa seems to have exhumed every skeletal remain there ever was of ideas for torture and of ways to prostitute, or at the very least denigrate women either in thought or concept. This latest just shows a crassness that I can’t wrap my mind around. Don’t they even have the basic knowledge of anatomy and how it all works?! As if… Seems to me these men have been living in some remote un-named monastery of the 9th century who got teleported into our times!

How could I ever trust what these ‘so called’ scholars ever said, say or will say? Black marker at the ready!

I’m sorry, don’t know about you guys, but I’d like some guidelines, protocols, and pathways clearly delineating the process of reasoning and precedents used to formulate every single one of the fatwas EVER pronounced. That should keep them busy for another millennium! These men have too much time on their hands.

Oh, and by the way -guys… lay off on the pomegranates!!

    Oh my God! I can’t go to work anymore!! The visualization of what could be is killing me.

    And some folks are actually siding with the fatwa!! Where were they when God was giving out brains?

      Where were they? Rummaging through the garbage trying fit on some eyes, ears, and other body parts- unfortunately they got the biggest mouths!! Oy!

      Imagine what every Saudi woman must be thinking before stepping into her work place? The looks, the silences, and maybe some hysterical giggle- because this is so disgustingly sad- you got to laugh or break someone’s face in!

      Read someone even asked that we await for a formal ruling on this piece of crap! The nerve, absolutely and unmitigated nerve! As if it isn’t plain and bold as day that these men not only removed from office, but denied any voice until death dost part them from this earth!

        Trusting another human being with *your* religion and *your* morality is a very dangerous thing. No matter how great of a zombie you are, there are just some things where you have to draw a line and say WTF! 😀

        Anyone who supports this is definitely very, very stupid and dangerous. If for instance this is made compulsory tomorrow, would those who support it demand their co-workers to start suckling them?! What a load of bull crap!

        This is what boggles my mind- we don’t have priests nor do we have a pope- yet ‘we’ insist on treating these ‘scholars’ as if they were sacred Cardinals! Honestly these fatwas based on hearsay hadiths is a loaded gun!

    I think it is a SHOCK technique. Shock and humiliate the women so much that they stop working outside their homes. What a pity!
