I have a new theory about men who believe women are at fault for all the crimes that happen against them.
You see, these people were probably dropped on their heads as kids, and that trauma has addled their brains. Which is why they cannot use these brains before they speak.
And here’s Exhibit A for proof.
An Egyptian lawyer has claimed, on national television nonetheless, that women wearing ripped jeans deserve to be raped!
Nope. No need to read it again. You got it right the first time.
Nabih al-Wahsh, the ‘great’ mind who came up with this insight, proclaimed that if a girl walked on the streets wearing ripped jeans, it was her nation’s duty to assault and rape her.
According to Al-Arabiya, Al-Wahsh was part of a talk show that was discussing laws around ‘inciting debauchery’ when he came up with this ‘national duty’ that allowed men to rape women who exposed a part of their legs in ripped jeans so as to teach them a lesson about self-respect.
At this point, there was very little that Al-Wahsh could’ve done to salvage the situation. I’m surprised he didn’t just wish for the earth to open up and swallow him whole.
Oh wait! That only happens to people who’re actually ASHAMED of what they’ve said. But this man clearly wasn’t.
As any normal, sensible individual would, the other guest panelists vehemently opposed Al-Wahsh’s disgusting remark.
But Al-Wahsh’s momma didn’t raise no quitter! He just wouldn’t back down!
“Girls must respect themselves so others respect them. Protecting morals is more important than protecting borders.”
You know how once is a mistake but twice is a habit? Well, Al-Wahsh is a serial offender because he has pulled such a stunt once before on another television show!
This guy just can’t leave women alone! This time, he was arguing with an imam from Australia, who insisted that wearing a hijab ought to be a choice rather than a religious compulsion.
Maybe his weren’t doing the trick because Al-Wahsh took off his shoe and threw it at his opponent! Yes, this too on national television!
*such lawyer skills. Much wow.* NOT.
Here’s a tricky little thing about freedom of speech that people often forget: you’re free to speak your mind, as long as you use that mind before you speak.
But remember what I told you? Dropped on the head? And if your brain’s damaged beyond saving, how will you use it to think before you speak, right?
Mr. Wahsh, a woman can wear whatever she wants, roam wherever she wants, and no one is entitled to lay a finger on her. NO ONE.
Let us all pray for Al-Wahsh that this is merely a temporary lapse of good judgement and not some permanent condition. However, I don’t see much hope here, because going by the outrage that his comment has incited, mental health is the least of his worries.
