Keeping girls “pure”

Saudi Arabia is one of the most gender-separated nations on earth.

The idea, suggested by some leading Saudi bloggers, to “segregate the blogrolls on blogs for the links of female and male Saudi bloggers”, is a sign of religious insanity. One female blogger explains:

…A number of bloggers have separated the blogrolls and posted them in separate blogs, with no connections between them, in a bid to protect the morals of bloggers and maintain the chastity of Muslim girls.

Muslim girls are just as able to watch satellite television and surf the internet and have their “chastity” confronted.
