Saudi Arabia is a good example of US double standards, if an impoverished country were to skirt the "human rights" the US touts there'd be a furry, when SA does it it gets a pass. Garbage in garbage out.

Western women drive, because they have fought long and hard to be treated as equals, not as someones property, or an inferior species.

Islam and its fake God, do make me laugh !

I am just reading a paper on the anthropology of rape within cultures and many factors are in play, as to why some cultures rape and others do not.




Sanday (1981), who examined 156 tribal societies from a cross-cultural sample, found a relationship between rape and the powerlessness of women. Rape-free societies were those with an appreciation for the contribution that women make in society, with equal distribution of power, respect of the natural environment, and the belief that the two sexes are complementary (e.g., the Tuareg of the Sahara; and the Mbuti and Ashanti of Africa). On the other hand, Rape-prone societies were ones in which women were excluded from power arenas (e.g., symbolic rituals, houses, etc.) due to food depletion, migration, or other social or natural forces. As such “females are perceived as objects to be controlled as men struggle to retain or gain control of their environment” (Sanday 1981: 25). Sexual assault is one such mechanism of control.


Also, within certain cultures, it may also depend on whether the male kin support rape or not.




Otterbein (1994) who examined seventeen primitive cultures from the Murdock’s Human Relations Area Files, found that cultures with inflexible sex-role systems exhibited higher degree of violence, including rape. He further asserts the asymmetry between men and women in his use of fraternal interest group theory to predict rape. The existence of fraternal interest groups - power groups related to males- has been used to explain why some societies were internally peaceful or conflict ridden. Societies with fraternal interest groups had higher incidences of interpersonal violence, feuding and internal war. Otterbein argues that although rape is sometimes an individual act, it is the awareness of available support of male kin that predicts the incidences of rape. Using 300 societies from the Human Relations Files he finds that the presence of fraternal interest groups override the influence of punishment in predicting the frequency of rape.

I still want to "get in his face!" lol.

I do think this is a "you can't handle the truth" situation, though. A real one. I think if forced to face the reality of what he believes about women, he'd be suicidal he'd become so flooded with his own mistakes and erroneous thinking.

But if's that's their culture and the men are okay with it and the women can't figure out a way to change it, then each to his own.

But you cross the line when you drag American women into by saying we "don't mind being raped".

A perfect example of a bigot addressing an issue of which he has no knowledge or understanding.

Isn't it really the same thing as Western men saying 'She asked for it because she dressed like a _____". Or, "She asked for it because she drank too much and put herself in the position of ________ (prey?)".

What kind of a doonblasted idiot would want a bunch of foreign female drivers shipped into his country?? For those of you who dislike the Saudis maybe this is the perfect plan to defeat them. The woman drivers lay waste to the entire country in a matter of weeks would be the headlines.
woman drivers fail compilation.

the tradition of wearing the head covering or veil, started as a result of the events mentioned in the book of enoch and flood chapters of the bible, where it says the "sons of god" or "watchers", saw that human females appeared to be "fit extensions", made a pact not to reveal to the other "sons of god" or "watchers" what they were about to do, then came down to the earth from the sky, landed on mt. hermon, and began abducting human women , who then gave birth to human hybrids (half human/half watcher). the biblical account calls the hybrid offspring, the nephilim.

so human men, in order to protect their wives from the abductions ,etc, the women were covered with a veil, so the watchers wouldn't be able to see if they were "fit extensions". paul also mentions this in the new testament. so i'm thinking somewhere along the line, islam lost the story that started the tradition in the first place.

Is this also why Hindu women wear the head veil ?

Must be the book of Enoch..

yes, i think so. not just enoch. paul in the new testament mentions that women should have their heads covered "because of the angels".

there's also the book of giants and the book of jasher versions of the event.

So even Hindus were influenced by Abrahamic monotheistic religion ?

You can't be serious..

it's not a religious moment, it's a historical account. the ancient cultures of the near, middle and far east, were interacting, even back then. and the abduction phenomenon of their day, was widespread, as it is given as the reason for the flood event.

I wasn't criticizing you. I was merely expanding on the answer you had started.

Now to add more, it's interesting to see that the Israelis generally don't carry this attitude, but then, they were returned after the diaspora having been immersed in many other cultures and picked up their attitudes toward women. They brought them back to the region.

Why do men in the ME and most equatorial countries restrict women so much?

What are they afraid of?
