Shouldn't they be stoned for that?

Why bother wearing knickers under the tents they are forced to wear?

If they're worried about the staff ogling them, the logical solution is to only let openly gay men work there.

Oh, wait...

I'm pretty sure a metric assload of internet porn searches come from conservative Saudi Arabia. I bet those dudes have no idea what to do with a woman when they finally buy one out of a vending machine or however it is they distribute them.

How could they get sand in their vagina with all those layers?

I mean, they wear like what, 10 or 12 layers? PLUS the burka or whatever it is called? Gown upon gown over culots over modesty leggings, good grief, how do they even manage to get undressed in time to take a piss before they wet themselves?

Hassan and Abdullah worked together, were both laid off, so off they went to the unemployment office. When asked his occupation, Hassan looked the lady in the eye and said "Panty stitcher. I sew the elastic onto cotton panties."

The clerk looked up panty stitcher. Finding it classed as unskilled labor, she gave him $300 a week unemployment pay.

Abdullah went in and sat down with the lady. She asked Abdullah his occupation. "Diesel fitter" he replied. Since diesel fitters are a skilled job the clerk gave Abdullah $600 a week.

When Hassan found out he was furious. He stormed back in to find out why his friend and co-worker, Abdullah, was collecting double his unemployment pay. The clerk explained: when I looked it up, panty stitchers were unskilled laborors and diesel fitters were skilled laborors.

"What skill?" yelled Hassan. "I sew the elastic on. He pulls on it and says, "Yep, diesel fitter".

You know that Saudi men are just a bunch of dirty old men when it comes down to it.

If Saudi women want to come into the 21st 20th century, they're going to need to publicly force these kinds of issues. They need to get the world to pay more attention to the cultural nonsense that affects them over there, regardless of how embarrassing it might be to do so. The more sunshine they can bring on their grievances, the better chance they'll have at changing things.

As for me personally, I think that Saudi society should let the women run the lingerie shops and stop being such asshats about the whole thing. A big chunk of the civilized world looks at you at shakes its collective head in bewilderment. Subjugation of women in this day and age is a sign of social retardation for any religion, society, or culture that still promotes it. Get with the program and give the ladies their equality. If there is a problem with that, then I would suggest that the problem is yours. Deal with it.

Honestly there is a simple solution to this problem. Any state that practices any sort of Sharia law should be invaded. There is no reason we should put up with this sort of lunacy. These people have demonstrated that they have no ability to make responsible decisions, and should have the freedom to make such decisions taken away. They already follow a false prophet and should by all rights be executed anyway.

We're going to invade Great Britain? They've got officially sanctioned sharia courts. About 40% of British muslims want sharia to become the law of the land. Just wait 'til they have a bigger voting bloc!

Oh, and Canada is considering instituting sharia courts as well. Looks like we'd better expand the army.

its funny how in your flippant comment you stumble closer to the Truth than anyone else so far.

Women prostitute themselves by dressing in these revealing garments. we know that to lust after a woman in your heart is as bad as having committed adultery, yet we allow these temptresses to seduce the minds of good young men.

not that it matters, these women are muslim, and so are the men they bring into temptation. this sin is surpassed by their infidelity to our Lord, and is really just throwing another match on the fire.

Great Britain and Canada are just another example of why you shouldn't try to appease the Beast.

they are so much further down the road of sin than we are (as evidenced by what you just said) and yet, i fear for our own country based on the few short steps WE have taken.

we need not worry about any of them. Their countries were not founded on the Word, as ours was.

Veteran of the Cola Wars: Why bother wearing knickers under the tents they are forced to wear?

Saudi Arabia has been the biggest market for high-end lingere since the 70's.

Why? Becuase women only have to wear the burqa in public. At home they can dress however they want, and in the presence of their husbands, they can wear as little as they like.

The Arabs Muslims aren't prudes, they're just insanely jealous.

Shows how little you know about the subject: Saudi women wear underwear, then regular clothes. When they leave the house, they put a burqa on top of the dress or whatever they're wearing.

/it's you're going to hate on a culture, at least take some time to learn something about it.
//women used to work in Saudi Arbaia selling things like clothes, but once they were banned from driving cars in the 1980's, it was impossible for them to get to their jobs.

Actually the Saudi courts have made progress by adopting the mainstream Islamic thought on punishment for criminals and immodest female relatives; it is forbidden for any Muslim man to beat a women with a cane thicker than his thumb, he also has to lash her while keeping a koran pinned under the arm holding the cane, that limits the force.

When I served in Saudi Arabia, all women had to wear the abaya (black long-sleeved robe and black head covering) when going downtown. Our commander had come down with the order that we needed to wear a long dress/skirt and a long-sleeved shirt when wearing the abaya, so as to follow "standards of decency."

Let me get this straight; you want women to wear a tailor's ransom in thread underneath a black robe in the Saudi Arabian sun, while the guys get to sport polo shirts and khakis. Needless to say, I continued wearing a tank top and shorts under my Arab garb.

came here to say what Sodium Benzoate beat me to.

so I'll leave you with this, My Grandpa was a massive mysoginst, whom I dissagreed with on many things, including the following logics but perhaps not his conclusion. He thought Arabs were shiat because of how they treated their women, and his logic, ancient and retarded, is as follows;

IF you assume women are property (which they do)
AND assume horses are property (they do)
given that, "you can judge a man by how he treats his horse" can be logically extened to include all property (you can judge a man by how he treats his property)
THEREFORE
Arab men are either quite stupid OR shiat sucking pigdogs, and should be treated as such by civilized men of the world. Grandpa always left an option "for the incurably stupid".

take that a step further, no matter how "dishornoring" a horse is, you never cut it's head off, you never BEAT it. That would be farking stupid. If it needs to be dead, deerslug in the head, none of this ritual torture/murder BS. So these farkwads not only think of women as property but they clearly don't think of them as being more valuable than a horse. So not only are women property to them, but not even important property, not even property worthy of the respect you or I would have for a car or a horse. So you know the place of importance that "Car" has in your mind, imagine a people so mentally ill that they somehow put women not only in the same inhuman category, but BELOW that level of importance.

/you CAN judge a man by how he treats his car btw
//I don't think Women can be property and I wonder about horses.

Who knows what a woman is wearing or looks like underneath the veil?

They could have tons of makeup on and wear sexy underwear, and/or be hideously ugly.

Surely I'm not the only one who remembers the Warner Brothers cartoon with the harem girl getting her veil removed and she's a butt-ugly Lil' Abner (hillbilly) chick underneath. "A MA-YUN!"

My asinine World History teacher in high school did tell us a funny story once. He was in the army as a young man, stationed in the Middle East and happened to drive past a woman covered up in Muslim garb. Her veil blew to the side and she was incredibly ugly underneath. And looked very angry at being unveiled. Well I'm not telling it right, imagine your idiot teacher recounting the story in a Southern accent.

\many days i share the same sentiment as the aforementioned character
\\A MAYUN!
\\\this teacher also claimed that the Pyramids' measurements all matched up with celestial measurements. "Ah don't know what those Egyptians were thinkin'!"

Nope. Many of them were probably dressed much as you were.

The law says you have to be covered up in public. It says nothing about what you wear under that covering.
