Quote# 84944

Saudi Arabia is the only country to deny women the right to drive. But despite renewed protests against the ban this year, resistance to change remains strong among conservative royals and clerics.

A report this week by Kamal Subhi, a former professor at King Fahd University, warned that allowing women to drive would provoke a surge in prostitution, pornography, homosexuality and divorce. Within 10 years of the ban being lifted, it warned, there would be "no more virgins" in the kingdom.

Mr Subhi, who sent his report to all 150 members of the Shura Council, the country's legislative body, said moral decline was already discernible in other Gulf states where women were allowed to drive.

I was under the impression that the house of Saud (or at least the king) was actually one of those progressive families, and it was mostly the crazy clerics that introduced these restrictive laws.

(correct me if I'm wrong)

I thought those things were caused by Sharia.

There will be no virgins for a simple reason, they will get in their cars and drive out of the oppressive theocracy!

Oh noes, we can't let women drive, they might think they're people.

It's only a matter of time before Saudi Arabia implodes like any other repressive dictatorship.

QFT. Pretty much sums up any conservative ever, at least in regards to social change.

PROTIP: Only the best of the best in the RAF get to fly our Eurofighter Typhoons.

Suck it, Saudi subh(i)uman sexists.
