There are other important things to discuss and implement than Woman drivers.


Yes quit talking about it and let them drive.

Unless you sit very unusually your pelvis is unlikely to be rolled forward. It seems surprising research elsewhere has never found this to be the case. This shouldn't be credited as research let alone, science. This appears to be blatant misogynism; why be scared of the power of women? Celebrate your differences and strengths. If you try and eradicate women, remember, there will be no men; without women.

The neo-barbarian wahabi kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a brain child of imperial America and its biggest proxy in the middle east, is famous for such idiotic nonsensical views. Its a country responsible for sponsoring covert American terrorism to Muslim states and persecution of all other peaceful sects of Islam, even suppression of their own women. Recently a cleric ordered flogging of a rape victim while in another case a sheikh was only ordered a few weeks imprisonment for raping his 4 year old daughter.
No wonder why America and its allies never talk about an idea of democracy in KSA!!!

Erm... excuse me Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Luhaydan, you primitive savage...
Doesn' t logic dictate that testicles would be more at risk than ovaries?
Just asking...

It has nothing to do with driving, their ovaries are damaged from the daily beating they give their wife's.

@Salan Kid -- are you still living in the 19 century--you can't be serious !! I hope your ranting is strictly facetious (just kidding in case that word is foreign to you!) ....

scientists must investigate further this phenomenon , it cant be dismissed until new research is finalize to determine the facts , possible new discovery that determines the damage done to the ovary when driving ,


Salan Kid 30.09.2013 01:35

women should drive on weekends only laws , they might damage their cooking skills , roads are empty on weekends , must offer women the opportunity to be together for a chitchat on the red light when waiting for the green light . the pilot scheme is already under way in Europe ,

One thing for sure, there would remain half as much traffic. That's scientific.

Sheiks is like Internet. If they say it, well then it must be true. Got to save those ovaries so the Saudis can keep havin' babies. Because you know, they blow up so fast.
