Saudi Arabia elected to UN women’s rights commission

24 Apr

Comedy gold! 🙂

Saudi Arabia was elected to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.

The addition of the Gulf nation was first flagged by UN Watch, a nongovernmental body that monitors the United Nations. The Commission on the Status of Women’s main mission is to assess the challenges to reaching gender inequality, according to the U.N. website.

“Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief,” Hillel Neuer said.

Neuer called the election “absurd,” noting that all women in Saudi Arabia “must have a male guardian who makes all critical decisions on her behalf, controlling a woman’s life from her birth until death. Saudi Arabia also bans women from driving cars.”

Saudi Arabia, a top U.S. ally, is also on the U.N. Human Rights Council.

Can’t say that I care; I hate the U.N. anyway, and have long done so. Just more proof of its absurdity…

    If there is an evil patriarchy when I see one. Saudi Arabia and its Wahabist offshoots is it.

    Might as well say ‘War is peace’. ‘Freedom is slavery’.

    It amounts to the same thing. Imagine if they didn’t have……. oil.

    You see? Even the worst nations on earth have at least some redeeming qualities.

    Saudi-Arabia has polygyny, which means women don’t have to have intercourse with losers. They do not even have to show their bodies to losers.

    Clitoridectomy enables women to force men to man-up and marry. No temptation to ride the cock caroussel, so you will have ten more fertile years, so more children and grand-children.

    If you are a Darwinist and don’t believe in an Afterlife, reproduction is the only kind of immortality there is.

    Ironically, only threatening eternal damnation can prevent clitoridectomized women from outbreeding unclitoridectomized women.

      Okay, but doesn’t explain why the U.N. chose to have them on such a commission…
