Female Hysteria and Harm in Saudi Arabia

October 26, 2013

It’s already started! Just as predicted:

Last month Sheikh Salah al-Luhaydan, a well-known cleric who also practises psychology, claimed on a popular Saudi website that it has been scientifically proved that driving “affects the ovaries” and leads to clinical disorders in the children of women who are foolish enough to drive.

Yes, and Aristotle proved long ago in his History of Animals (493a):

Του δε θήλεος Ιδιον μερος ύστερα, καί του αρρενος αίδοιον [The respective part of a female is an emptiness, ovaries, utter hysteria, a uterus, and so different from that of the sane point of a male, a spear, a penis.]

This is the earliest report today so far I’ve seen, from USA. Watch at your own peril.

    A parody of Bob Marley’s “No Woman No Cry”:

    Ova-ovaries all safe and well, So you can make lots and lots of babies
