You have to hand it to the Saudis - they come up with some novel ideas...

I guess it's a mark of the limited choices the women have, that they would start this campaign.
I will attend my work tomorrow here in saudi with some new ideas and aims for the coming weeks... This is so funny!!!!
How do you prove that you have been breastfed though?? If I go out with my wife I have to constantly carry paperwork to prove our relationship, will I need to carry a picture of me and any woman that has breast fed me in the act to prove it? But that would be considered porn... Maybe the feeding would have to be done in the presence of an imam and a certificate provided..
I love the idea of being breastfed by the maids so that I can mix freely... I hope this has to be done on a regular basis to maintain the relationship... lol.. I love working here, never a dull moment..
Hi - I'm glad you found this post as our man in Saudi. Here in Qatar it's caused a deal of hilarity, even among the Qataris. Saudi is just something else. (I did 6 months there, at Aramco). Here's my take on this, in another place: http://paranormal-hotel.blogspot.com/20 … river.html
It did occur to me that Shaikh Abdul might have shares in nursing bras, because they're going to be in great demand if the idea catches on!
I think this statement speaks volumes of the Islamic condition and shows that the Fatwa is most certainly ridiculous, but is also meant to show that it is nowhere near as ridiculous as the misogynist Hadith from which it originated.
This should also speak for the women themselves, who appear to be getting organized and informed, and are beginning to challenge the Islamic state.
I say "Kudos" to them.
I think it says more about Saudi than about Islam. All the World's major religions are paternalistic (at best), Islam more than most, but this nonsense could only originate from Saudi.
I have to say beel, I agree.
I know we don't often do that... but I am with you on that one.
I'm afraid you're not guaranteed to have the "benefits" you imagine. Didn't the article also say that the approved procedure is for the woman to express her milk, then feed it to her would-be "son" in a cup? Well, gosh-darn it, sounds like that cuts out the middle-man (so to speak).
And what about the poor older women who don't have any more milk?
Maybe the "proof" is to take pictures at every step of the process. Or maybe you're right about the imam and a certificate. I'm sure they're creative enough to come up with a solution. They've gotta be, if they came up with this hilarious notion in the first place!
I have been discussing this issue at work today, but have no one willing to take me as their son.... no one currently nursing so no milk availability.. lol
This part in the article made me laugh. Although, I think they should just let women drive there, I don't see the big deal. But then again, my customs are not their customs.
