OK, one nice lady-blogger described her experiences after returning to KSA on the continual harassments she has to endure, other people replied with their own sometimes very amusing stories. So, wearing an Abaya and niqab doesn’t help in the harassment department. At all. It demonstrably makes it worse! Leaving it off is no option, culturally and lawfully.
Why this excitement? Because the un-known has such mysterious attraction? What is underneath? For some reason they clearly never imagine you covered in scales with a cows’tail hanging down your back. Let’s be real: there could be anything hidden underneath an abaya and niqab!
So: it must be the imagined allure of a covered beauty, and the erotic atmosphere of Riyad, (google some pictures: it’s a dusty dead place) which send the senses reeling!
There is another option: Extend the rules a bit so that the male half of the population also covers up. In my opinion this is not only fair, it improves the view considerably. I have always maintained that any man looks his best in a leather motor-suit and closed helmet. You see quite a lot of them around here. As some of them are my friends, I can also vouch for it that, although they look so very well in full gear: it is useless to unwrap them. That only causes disappointment. So the men need not worry: we will not start to harass them.
- You will be horribly hot and uncomfortable, but there, you are not the only ones.
- You can still drive a car.
- Less injuries when you crash another car, when the drifting goes wrong again.
- Leather is also strong and easy to clean.
- You can get special masks to help you breathe while wearing a closed helmet.
- You will look so much better!
- The helmet will protect you from the beatings with handbags you normally receive from the ladies you harass.
- And, as it will be impossible to follow and/or harass a lady for any length of time, before you’ll go down with heatstroke, everybody will be a lot happier.
