At least that what conservative Muslims believe. Should I find myself aroused and moved to sexual impropriety with a women, it it obviously her fault. The latest foolishness out of these camps is the push by some for women to cover their ‘tempting eyes’.
Women with sexy eyes in Saudi Arabia may be forced to cover them up, according to the spokesperson of the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (CPVPV) in the conservative Gulf kingdom.
Spokesman of the Ha’eal district, Sheikh Motlab al-Nabet said the committee has the right to stop a women whose eyes seem “tempting” and order her to cover them immediately….
The CPVPV is Saudi’s Sharia, Islamic law, executive arm and was founded in 1940 to ensure Islamic laws are not broken in public, yet over the years, the committee has been largely criticized over its human rights violations.
In 2002, the committee refused to let female students out of their burning schools in Mecca for “not wearing the proper head cover,” which contributed to a large number of dead.
However easy it is to criticize the ridiculous of this statement, this is only the extreme end of a concept that is prevalent in many parts of the world. The entire concept of a woman ‘asking for it’ if she is dressed provocatively shows exactly the same attitude. We men just can’t control ourselves. We are all animals.
Unless we lock all the women inside, the only answer is for us males is to wear blinders.
Thereby going through life looking like we are censored.
We will need to live in our peripheral vision, but if that is what is necessary to protect ourselves and our sons from the inherent evil that is the temptation by women, then so be it.
