I’m Thankful I Don’t Live In An Islamic Nation

Women have always been 2nd class citizens in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. That hasn’t changed. They are mere chattel, possessions to be owned. Slaves to be humped, beaten, and controlled.

I can understand the desire to tell a woman to shut up and have the expectation that she’d actually do it. I get that. I don’t, however, know why any man would want a wife simply as a sexual object, or a slave. I am a firm believer in the traditional gender roles of men & women. That should be a choice. It should not be institutionally enforced by society. Islam, as an ideology, is the depredation of women by childish simpletons, with grossly under-socialized egos.

AFP – Denied the right to travel without consent from their male guardians and banned from driving, women in Saudi Arabia are now monitored by an electronic system that tracks any cross-border movements.

Since last week, Saudi women’s male guardians began receiving text messages on their phones informing them when women under their custody leave the country, even if they are travelling together.

“The authorities are using technology to monitor women,” said columnist Badriya al-Bishr, who criticised the “state of slavery under which women are held” in the ultra-conservative kingdom.

Women are not allowed to leave the kingdom without permission from their male guardian, who must give his consent by signing what is known as the “yellow sheet” at the airport or border.

The move by the Saudi authorities was swiftly condemned on social network Twitter — a rare bubble of freedom for millions in the kingdom — with critics mocking the decision.

“Hello Taliban, herewith some tips from the Saudi e-government!” read one post.

“Why don’t you cuff your women with tracking ankle bracelets too?” wrote Israa.

“Why don’t we just install a microchip into our women to track them around?” joked another.

“If I need an SMS to let me know my wife is leaving Saudi Arabia, then I’m either married to the wrong woman or need a psychiatrist,” tweeted Hisham.

“This is technology used to serve backwardness in order to keep women imprisoned,” said Bishr, the columnist.

    In Islam’s twisted view, they probably get the same – a bunch of virgin guys who know nothing about women.

    Me: Fall to your knees and call out his name from your heart.

    Her: What?

    Me: That’s it.

    Her: That works?

    Me: Yes … if from your heart.

    Don’t discount killing people, xenicalman. Some people need killing. As a Marine, I’m certain that you already know this.
