An Egyptian lawyer has apparently claimed that it is a ‘national duty’ to rape a woman if she wears ripped jeans!
Egyptian avatar Timiany pulls on a pair of ripped jeans.
Nabih al-Wahsh said on TV “Are you happy when you see a girl walking down the street with half of her behind showing?”
He added: “I say that when a girl walks about like that, it is a patriotic duty to sexually harass her and a national duty to rape her.”
I’m happy to see, in the video, that women are not so ‘second class’ that the rest of the discussion panel immediately pounce on his views. There’s also the case of the same man allegedly having a long standing agenda against many others to serve his own ‘celebrity lawyer’ status, including Lebanese superstar Haifa Wehbe (apparently she’s Egyptian, not Lebanese as she claims), something that echoes around other cultures around the world, as well as filing lawsuits against others, including Queen Elizabeth of England and Saddam Hussein because of what he perceives as their immorality and lack of patriotism. First in the firing line appears to be Egypt’s intelligentsia, though.
The man was taken to court, almost a decade ago, to dissuade him from launching a barrage of lawsuits against those ‘insulting Islam’. If you’re pissing off other Muslims with what they regard as ‘nut job’ cases, you know you’re overcooking your faux-outrage.
Nada Draz of the state National Council for Women has said that the comments ‘explicitly promote rape’.
No one should be able to come off with comments such as this and expect to walk away scot free.
Thanks to Egyptian avatar Timiany for drawing this incident to my attention, and no apologies from me for posting from a feminist rather than naturist perspective because we all know that in the broader SL scheme of things there’s male avatars out there whose purpose is to use female avatars as a virtual sperm receptacle and to treat them accordingly. We don’t need to look at the backward views of some Arab world nonentity to find atavistic views.
