Saudi cleric’s fatwa: Women only watch soccer to look at men’s thighs

Saudi cleric has issued a fatwa (religious edict) stating that women only watched soccer to stare at men’s thighs, Al Arabiya reported on Saturday.

The imam said it should be forbidden for women to watch football games and they “do not care who wins the match, all they care about is watching the player’s thighs.”

He added that a “woman seeing a foreign man is sinful, so what about seeing his thighs and tight kit?”

The fatwa garnered criticism on social media, including a trending hashtag on twitter in Arabic translating to: #women_love_football_because_of_players’_thighs, the news outlet reported…

    Can’t say I blame the women. If it wasn’t for the thighs, there’d be more excitement watching the air leak out of a tire.

    And their eyes will get pregnant when they go to “heaven” after they die.

  • El Martyachi

    It’s soccer. That’s why the men watch too.

    I’ve worked in Saudi Arabia. moslems ARE that warped and perverted.

    I’m reminded of the old line about the British gentry sending the idiot of the family into the clergy.
    Clearly the musloids, already sitting at the far end of that counter, have taken it even further.

    I thought muslim men were too busy looking at the rear ends of goats.

      exactly ! that is why their women are reduced to staring lustily at foreign mens thighs .

  • Maggat

    I think that those assholes don’t even realize just how stupid they sound.

  • Alain

    Granted it demonstrates how loony they are, but I ask if this is any nuttier than what we get from the loony Left?

  • canminuteman

    Well, I know there is only one reason men watch women’s sports – figure skating is my favourite, so…

    • Blind Druid

      That’s why women’s beach volleyball events sell out real quick. Lots of muzzies watching; with newspapers on their laps. Fappity fap fap fap.. Allah U Squirtbar.
