    Well, I guess I would do the same if I heard of a woman who was ostracized for being "criminally beautiful". :D

    By the way, let me explain what I mean by the irony in this:

    Irony I: If you say that someone is too handsome for your country, aren't you admitting that all the men in your country are kinda ugly (including yourself)?

    Irony II: (And this is the big one) You Saudi guys always insist on your women wearing hijabs and burkas so that they won't drive men nuts (or "distract" them as they officially like to say). If you admit that women can easily get "distracted" by handsome men, isn't it logically consistent to cover up the guys the same way?

    Just FYI, 95% of women in Saudi Arabia, also think women should wear burkas and it looks like several of the princes are looking to reverse this judgement. Considering what I know about the king, he will likely not uphold it.

    Good thing I'm not in Saudi Arabia. *struts his stuff*

    95%, huh? Do you have a source on that? My wife is from a Muslim country, and I have to say I sort of doubt it.

    Anyway, I know that this sort of thing is often supported by conservative women too. It's a very convenient thing to turn into a sense of pride, rather than wallowing in misery about it. I don't have any statistics on the rules for clothing, but I know the laws against women driving cars were not supported by Saudi women in a poll.
