If You Have Sexy Eyes, Hide Them

Posted: 22nd December 2011 by Absurd Stories in Law, People

Women with sexy eyes in Saudi Arabia might be forced to cover them, according to the spokesman of the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (CPVPV) in the conservative Gulf kingdom.

One spokesperson, Sheikh al-Motlab Nabet said that the committee has the right to stop a woman whose eyes appear to be "tempting" and ordered her to immediately cover her eyes. Saudi women are already required to wear a burqa. Even their hands must be covered. They have no right to drive. And legal penalties for offenses are really harsh. Imagine if they wore lingerie

The announcement comes just days after a Saudi fought with a committee member, who wanted to force his wife to hide the eyes. The man ended up in hospital after being attacked with a knife.  Some people are even sarcastically wondering if it would not be simpler to directly put out the eyes of all baby girls instead of forcing them to wear dark glasses.

    Why blame people for being beautiful when you are the one that cannot control your own lust? It is because of law like these, the women are suffering. I even heard that if they are being raped on the street and if they try to report it, they will have to die for the family honor.

    Why need to hide the beauty that was given by Him to you? This is totally absurd. Covering half of the face is already too much and now they need to cover the whole of it? How are they supposed to walk?

    Pffft! Men have to learn to control themselves! We aren’t animals!!! I guess though, some of us are, if we can’t handle a set of pretty eyes. Sheesh. Stupid men, making stupid rules.
