Today women in Saudi Arabia protest against the (not-written) rule that forbids them to drive cars. Ok, just hold that ‘women are dangerous drivers’ argument to yourself. If we take all the testosterone driven vehicles off the road, we will forever solve not only the safety issue, but also traffic jams, shortage of parking space, environmental problems and oil prices terror.
I find it remarkable that Saudi women protest against the female drivers ban, but not against the dress regulations. The rules that are called to life because men cannot control their you know what. That lack of self-control is not limited to Saudi or Muslim men. But why should women be responsible for maintaining the order?
You know what? That’s right. Women should be responsible for maintaining peace and order. Because they are capable of it. So maybe they should take that responsibility. I suggest we lock up all the men and use them for heavy physical labour and reproduction. The ones who can prove they are capable of adequate functioning in a civilised society may appear in public unaccompanied and maybe pursue a career.
In the meanwhile women will conduct sustainable business, govern free, peaceful and safe societies and drive around in cars. Naked.
Ambitious? One step at a time: first let women drive cars in Saudi Arabia – support Manal al-Sharif.
