#NotAllMuslims think women who drive are hurting their ovaries

If you mock the following gentleman, you are a racist.

Make sure to note the very second word in this Reuters report:

A conservative Saudi Arabian cleric has said women who drive risk damaging their ovaries and bearing children with clinical problems, countering activists who are trying to end the Islamic kingdom’s male-only driving rules…

(See? Because he’s a conservative!)

In an interview published on Friday on the website sabq.org, Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Lohaidan said women aiming to overturn the ban on driving should put “reason ahead of their hearts, emotions and passions”…

“If a woman drives a car, not out of pure necessity, that could have negative physiological impacts as functional and physiological medical studies show that it automatically affects the ovaries and pushes the pelvis upwards,” he told Sabq.

“That is why we find those who regularly drive have children with clinical problems of varying degrees,” he said.

Danica Patrick, take note.

Also, if Islamic women were allowed to drive, they could escape their abusive husbands and avoid honor killings and maybe even move to someplace where they wouldn’t be maimed and/or executed for the crime of having been gang-raped.

But mainly it’s the thing with the ovaries.
