In the latest attack on Saudi women's campaign to drive, a prominent holy man says sitting in a car hurts the reproductive system. Ladies, leave these troglodytes in the dust, says David Keyes.

Wonder what must be happening to all those male driver's reproductive systems after being forced to be the only drivers when they are outnumbered by so many women? Scary!
Seriously, my insight without sarcasm is ........."Oh Please......Who on earth came up with that?"
The Saudi women do have a point that the western women and many other women in the world are disrespected by men and many women are seen as just pretty, useful playthings and women often have to be both father, mother and bread winner as well. Maybe when Saudi women come into their own power they will plan that better than earlier women did. The first women's movement mainly opened up the traditional man's world to women but failed to achieve placing higher value and respect for traditional woman's roles. Many women would still choose to spend their lives in those roles if there was true value and respect placed on the roles they did.
The traditional woman's roles are too often only for women that have a rich family or husband. A poor women that attempts to stay home and raise a child with no private support is quickly assumed unworthy as a parent, trash in the minds of many and labeled a "Welfare Queen" in America. Now if she built a house instead of a child....That would be worth paying her for...…everyone knows that.
To me the protected, kept life would not be worth the trade off of not being able to ride a bike, swim, work, walk or live alone when I felt like the need to, and speak my mind whenever I dare to. The freedom to do all those things in the same public space as men is not worth the trade off of being kept safe behind walls. Luckily in most places in the western world nearly ever women can do those things safely and with respect.
