You know most like to think that the human race is civilized, a world full of rich cultures and histories just as much as there are different countries and religions but a report I found still shows the stone age mentality when it comes to the value of human life.
No matter what we do, there are still some countries that oppress one gender over the other but read the report for yourself and as always my blog will continue after…

Saudi woman pictured not wearing hijab faces calls for her execution
A woman in Saudi Arabia pictured without a hijab is facing calls for her execution.
Some social media users reacted with outrage after the emergence of the image taken in capital city Riyadh, with one man calling for the state to “kill her and throw her corpse to the dogs”.
The photo was allegedly first posted by an account under the name of Malak Al Shehri, which has since been deleted, reports the International Business Times.
An unnamed student who reposted the image told the website that Ms Al Shehri had announced she was going out to breakfast without either a hijab or abaya; a traditional Saudi body covering.
The student said she started receiving death threats after posting proof in response to followers who had asked to see a photo.
“So many people retweeted it and what she did reached extremists, so she got threats,” the student said. “She deleted her tweets but they didn’t stop, so she deleted her account.”
A hashtag which translates into English as “we demand the imprisonment of the rebel Angel Al Shehri” subsequently went viral.
One user wrote “we propose blood”, while another demanded a “harsh punishment for the heinous situation”.
Despite the outrage, many more users in Saudi Arabia came out in support of the woman’s actions.
The controversy comes amid an escalating row over ending a ban on women driving in the Kingdom.
Saudi Arabia is the only country on the planet that still bans female drivers, but a member of the royal family has proposed changing the decades-old rule.

Now my view is that I understand but disagree, let me explain, while this young woman in question is of this religion therefore knew the beliefs and the rules, should she have donned the hijab, possibly so but that does not excuse the filthy over-reaction she got from such an act.
The fact that people are calling for this young woman’s execution is nothing more than fucking ludicrous, it only shows the people following this faith has more value in an inanimate piece of cloth then they do a human life.
If you have people of your faith calling for the death of another over a piece of material and you don’t immediately stop and think hold the fuck on, we’re not going that far, it only goes to paint that faith and those people as still living in the fucking stone age.
Now don’t get me wrong, I think this rule applies to every country with every religion, I can and will respect your religion and your beliefs but the moment you decide that a human life doesn’t amount to anything then you and I are going to have a fucking strong disagreement.
Because the moment that happens, I no longer care if people believe that every hijab was stitched together but their lord almighty, all life matters and are a hell of lot more important than some bloody cotton or whatever you damn well use.
And while we are on this subject, I was amazed at some of the comments that were posted on the news site I was visiting when I found this report and would like to bring up a few of them, for example…one by Garybkatz…
“only the extremists were calling for execution. The moderates only wanted 300 lashes”
Now, trying here to be a little modest and not go into too much detail but due to certain “circles” that I have run with in the past and still do to this day, I can safely say I have dealt with handing out lashes (be it with willing other half’s) and can tell you that even with just one lash you can do a severe about of damage if you hit the wrong spot whilst untrained.
So if you now reduce this woman’s penalty, you take the chance of injury and multiply it by 300 and you have a shit storm waiting to happen if just one of those marks lands wrong.
And if they do end up crippling her, who then is going to look after her or are the people who wish this harm just going to turn their backs on the woman but of course they will abandon her, life don’t mean shit to these people.
Another comment came by Whoonline…
“These laws are designed to humiliate, subjugate and aggressively control an entire population. What does it have to do with god, humanity, fairness or justice to treat your subjects in this manner?
Absolute control, total obedience and ensuring nobody can disagree no matter what. It is regarded as anti-Islam in these countries to demand to be treated as free humans”.
Now I agree with this guy 100%, it’s so nice to see someone with a little common sense, so don’t you people think they should join the 21st century and start treating others with some respect.
Or how about joining the rest of us, treating women as equals, like they should be…get with the times people…
