Better Cover the Table Legs Too - They're Sexy
I realize that the sight of a woman in a head-scarf and covered in robes is enough to make any guy get a woody the size of the Seattle Space Needle. I mean, they're just so darn tempting, vile creatures that they are. They need to be controlled and their appearance in popular media should be restricted.
Wow! My dream country, Saudia Arabia, has gone and beaten me to it. King Abdullah has spoken to the editors of newspapers in his country (and I do mean his country) and asked them to not print pictures of women anymore. These photos of women may make men "go astray".
"One must think, do they want their daughter, their sister, or their wife to appear in this way. Of course, no one would accept this," Abbie said. "This way", means that the women were portrayed in articles relevant to them and always in the traditional Muslim headscarf. Santa voca! The shame! What's next? Women voting? Women driving (gasp!) cars!?
You'd think they had brains and could think for themselves.
If ever you want a nice, neat example of how religion oppresses, just take a long gander at Islam and the Kingdom of Saudia Arabia. Forbidding editors to print images of women even when they're appropriate makes no sense. Just go back to the 1600's when saying "chicken breast" or "chicken thigh" was too risqué for the masses so they went with "dark" and "white" meat.
It's intriguing to see that King Abbie is also trying to control the bad press his country is bound to get. When religion and, more to the point, theocracies get out of control, people start to rebel. People in positions of power will try to snuff out any dissention and the easiest way is to control the media outlets. Well intubate me but don't bring in the helium balloons 'cause I'm gonna die of not-surprise - Saudia Arabia's media are all either state-run or state-controlled. If you're telling the media what to do and say, you're going to have a positive image regardless of the shit that's actually happening on the street.
Just ask W.
