    And THIS is why they shouldn’t even be allowed to vote! 😉

      Good one.

    Misogynist piece of filth. He’d be better off with a sex doll, not a female human being.

    • Watchman

      Thus there islamic religious sanction of female sex slaves in the days before the invention of blow up PVC sex dolls.

      • Tooth&Claw

        Yeah they don’t want women that are more than their reproductive system and can actually think.
        The challenge is that if a woman isn’t smart and capable any offspring won’t be either, because frankly they won’t survive.

          Yes, I heard that too. Intellect is passed down to the children from the mother, not the father.

            Maybe that’s why Jewish identity is determined by matrilineal descent.

            Explains why Turdo is so stunned.

            You sure got that right!

      He’s not man enough to be able to handle, let alone appreciate, a real woman.

      More likely to be a goat-humper….

    Probably attended Borat University…

    Years ago I would have protested vehemently about this claim, but seeing the examples of Angela Merkel, Theresa May, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and Maxine Waters makes me much less sure these days. The only thing that makes me not immediately reject this are examples of males like Hank ‘Guam Might Capsize’ Johnson, Emmanuel Macron and Anthony Weiner.

      You might also consider this quote from the late Maryon Pearson: “Behind every successful man, there stands a surprised woman.”

        I think it was Charo who said, “Behind every great woman is a great behind.”

          Rather think Margaret Thatcher would disagree.

      Standard deviation.

    I think what he meant was that the average imam has only one quarter the intellect of the average woman.

    • David Murrell

      Heh. Lol.

  • Martin B

    Soddy clerics have a quarter of the intellect of goats.

  • Mohammad said the same thing to.

    I realise that even mentioning this makes Iqra Khalid soil her shorts but – if she read her Koran – it’s true.

    • Watchman

      The cleric has said this only because Muhammed said this and Muhammed is believed the perfect man with divine inspiration. Therefore it would be blasphemy to dispute what Muhammed claimed, and anyone who said otherwise would be subject to a death penalty that can be carried out by any muslim. According to Muhammed, the sun sets in a muddy pond, so to a devout muslim the sun indeed sets in a muddle pond and the earth doesn’t rotate on its axis to achieve this effect.

    Watch how fast he would be supported by all the Mo nations for chairperson of the UN Commission on the Status of Women.

    Actually, given the fact that Saudi women go along with their chattel status and western women agree that it’s no big deal – maybe the cleric is right.

    • felis gracilis

      This imam may have come to this conclusion by observing raging, hysterical feminazis in western universities.

  • Starlord

    In Iqra’s case this is true.

  • Clausewitz

    Considering the ongoing Feminist support of the Muslim agenda, he may not be that far off base.

  • Barrington Minge

    “Saudi cleric”…says it all really. Shit-for-brains. (if he’s lucky)
