Saudi cleric says women too stupid to drive

Saudi cleric says women too stupid to drive
Saudi Arabia's ban on women driving must remain because they ‘lack the intellect’ of men, says leading cleric

Sheikh Saad al-Hajari said women had only half the brainpower of males – which fell to a quarter when they ‘went to the market’

The cleric in Saudi Arabia has called to keep the ban against women driving there, after claiming that their “lack of intellect” compared to men meant they should not be in control of a car.

Mr al-Hajari, the head of the Saudi government's religious edict authority in the southern province of Assir, spoke out against "the evils of allowing women to drive" at a lecture.
The cleric, who was quoted in a report by Saudi daily Sabq, said: "It is not their fault, but women lack intellect do they not?
"Would you give a man with half an intellect a driving licence? So how would you give one to a woman when she has half an intellect?
"And if they go out to the market this gets halved again! So they now have a quarter of an intellect."
He added: "Their lack of intellect does not harm their piousness because they are made that way." Women in Saudi Arabia are not allowed pray while they are menstruating.

RE: Saudi cleric says women too stupid to drive
They do realize there are women drivers all over the world, right? If the women in their country don't drive well, then it's only through lack of education. Not because you need a dick to be a competent driver. But it's harder to control a well educated populous, so the theocracy loves uneducated people. Much like Trump said during his candidacy.

Worse the only thing they seem to be educated about is that fucking piece of shit koran.

Pretty sure it's Saudi men I've seen on Youtube "surfing" at high speed on top of cars in the desert.

But the women are the stupid ones...

I wonder how they feel about being in an aircraft with a female pilot??

I seem to remember Bill Gates giving a talk to a segregated audience in Saudi (men on one side and women behind a screen on the other) he said something like "Your country will never advance if you continue to ignore half of your talent"

It is Saudi Arabia. Not really shocking to me. Sad, but hardly shocking.

Pity al-Hajari is so far away -- I'd challenge him to an IQ test, a driving test, a music appreciation test, a home improvement aptitude test *and* a couple of rounds of mixed martial arts in a heartbeat, and probably beat him 5-0. Big Grin
