Quote# 133728

An Egyptian lawyer has sparked outrage after saying women who wear ripped jeans deserve to be sexually harassed and raped.

Nabih al-Wahsh, a prominent conservative, said it was part of the “national duty” to rape women wearing such garments, adding that girls who wear revealing clothing are inviting men to harass them.

He made the controversial comments during a current affairs talk show called Infirad on satellite channel AI-Assema.

The panel were having a heated debate on a draft law on prostitution when al-Wahsh asked: "Are you happy when you see a girl walking down the street with half of her behind showing?"

He added: “I say that when a girl walks about like that, it is a patriotic duty to sexually harass her and a national duty to rape her.”

I say that when a girl walks about like that, it is a patriotic duty to sexually harass her and a national duty to rape her.

I say that when anyone who voices sick and depraved views like that, it is a patriotic duty to ostracise him and a national duty to castrate him.
Feed him to the crocodiles.

"National duty" to make sure your nation is mocked and reviled as a cesspool where no woman will want to live or visit? Well, that's a new form of patriotism to me.

Well, a guy who spouts things like that deserves to get a bottle shoved up his arse. With some sand as lubricant.

And I thought the definition of "patriotism" had drifted hard in the US... damn...

Pretty sure that, given that these things are, by definition, unwanted, NOTHING is an invitation to harassment or rape.

Somebody take this man's dick away and give it to someone less likely to abuse it.

If your license to practice law hasn't been revoked after saying THAT on television then Egypt's legal system just might need some shaking up.

Damn straight I am! (I generally manage to avoid sexual harassing and/or raping her, though)

I suspect he said that because he knew the shock value of his words. After all, he's a lawyer. But he has just told us more about himself than he has about the women; he has told us that he cannot be trusted to behave as a responsible adult, and he has told us that he doesn't intend to respect personal boundaries. What a woman wears is HER choice, not his. None of them will ask his approval, and none of them care if he objects.

Complaining about women in pants? Is "Nabih al-Wahsh" Arabic for "David J. Stewart" or something?

And do they deserve it if their jeans aren't ripped?! Kos ummak!

Seconding HotaruSobotka: 'half her behind showing'? I don't know what ripped jeans he's seen, but the only ones I've ever seen (and I've seen quite a few) are only ever ripped at the knees.

I hope everyone else on the panel pummeled him after that!

I'll add reinforcements....

I say that when a lawyer speaks like that, it is a patriotic duty to curse at him and a national duty to disbar him.
