Saudi Arabia launches girls’ council – without any girls

It was an encouraging initiative for a country not known for giving women a platform in public life.

But when Saudi Arabia wanted to show off its inaugural girls’ council in al-Qassim province, they overlooked one thing: the women.

Pictures released to mark the first Qassim Girls Council meeting showed 13 men on stage, and not a single female.

The women were apparently in another room, linked via video.

    Hmmm how did they sort out who raped whom?

    • Watchman

      It wasn’t rape, it was Nikah al-Misyar without prior payment being agreed on and money changing hands –

      Therefore it was just a dispute about money. The women should still be punished for participating (just like a pig ‘participates’ in the production of bacon.)

      Thee-heee-heeee …..
      At least the boys were wearing dresses & likely panties in solidarity with their sistahs ………

  • Watchman

    Only Saudi Arabian men know what is good for Saudi Arabian women. No Saudi woman is intelligent enough to make her own decisions.

      And for Non-muslim women.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      The average Arab, male or female, has the intelligence of a chimp anyway.

      • Watchman

        Average IQ of Saudi Arabia: 84 –

          many generations of in-breeding will do that

          The Saudis are one point lower than North American blacks, and three points lower than Mexicans.
          Sweet Jesus!
          When the oil runs out, that place is going to get very spooky.

            Back to camels and tents.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            With those Numbers?
            Oh no, they head straight to cannibalism.
            Almost none of the knowledge of how to be a Bedouin wandering in the desert has survived the late 20th century.
            They are dependent on imported foods to eat and desalinated seawater to drink, plus their current population has far outstripped the Saudi Peninsula’s carrying ability.
            Nope, they will become eaters of men, but either way, no aid, no migration should ever be allowed.

            That’s a reality show I would watch.

          • Will Quest

            All the camel-piss their hearts desire ……….

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Even that will be in short supply as they will have already eaten all the camels.
            Trust me, Saudi Arabia is going to get so ugly when the wells go dry.
            It will be Mad Max, but with flesh eating zombies.

          • Will Quest

            Agreed !

  • Clink9

    C’mon, this is a Monty Python sketch right?

    • The Butterfly

      They wouldn’t have the courage to do something like this these days.

    • David Murrell

      …or a Bill Mahar sketch.

  • favill

    You should really have a laughing emoticon. However, perhaps these “men” think they’re girls.

  • ontario john

    Another feminist victory. Maybe the CBC can do a special on it. They already had a segment on the National last night, on how wonderful it is to wear a bag over your head in Iran.

  • ontario john

    They could have had at least a couple of goats on stage.

    • bverwey

      ontario john

      Or camels for the long legged or well hung ones … you never know really what they wear under those bath robes.

    • Shebel

      A flock of EWES would have driven them into a Frenzy.

      • Will Quest

        There will never be another Ewe …….

  • Shebel

    The teenagers were ALL too OLDE for this bunch of Perverts.l

    With the world seeking and finding additional and alternative energy sources, here is a timely warning to the House of Saud.

  • Cat-astrophe

    Well, of course.
    Its exactly how a women’s council should be run, by men.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Can we get an Amen, Billy?

  • It irks me that this country is not a glass parking lot.
