WTF Friday (Sunday), 9/29/2013

Late breaking WTF-ery, guys:

Saudi cleric Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Lohaidan has revealed a new and important reason why women should not drive cars: defective babies.

If that went by you a little fast, here it is again. According to Lohaidan, “medical studies show that [driving] automatically affects the ovaries and pushes the pelvis upwards”, and “[t]hat is why we find those who regularly drive have children with clinical problems of varying degrees”. Obviously, the internet is going insane over this.

Now excuse me while I go blame all my problems on the fact that my mother callously operated a Ford Taurus while pregnant with me.

  1. If driving can do that to ovaries one shudders to think what it can do to testicles. So that’s it for me. I’m stopping driving as from now, and only taking taxis driven by women: it’s the only possible ethical response!
