The blog American Bedu has started a list of the rules for women Saudi Arabia that highlights the contradictions Saudi women contend with every day. For example, women are forbidden to drive, visit a graveyard, or be alone with an unrelated man, but they are allowed to own a car, work, and make investments. Commenters are asked to add to the list and debate the reasoning behind the rules. [American Bedu via Global Voices]
What about if you cut out the floor of the car and run with it, Fred Flinstone style? Is that driving? How about if you have your kid hold the wheel while you Flinstone your way to the Jewel Osco? What if you visit a graveyard but your feet never touch the ground because you are on a pogo stick? Is graveyard pogo sticking allowed? How about riding around on a segway?
