JUST SAY NO

Could there be a Kuwaiti Lysistrata? No more rallies. No more Blue days. All we need to do is “just say no”, well, not to drugs this time, but to our men. Can we do it? Maybe with the help of Chocolate Bar. We might need to open more chocolate bars before we can do that. But once that’s done, that should be the new cry. No need to go door to door collecting signatures for women’s rights. JUST SAY NO. That should be our new motto.

p.s. isn’t that the one obligation, according to Islam, that a woman has towards her husband? I’m not sure here. I’m asking. But I remember from attending some religious classes ages ago that cooking, keeping house, raising children, etc., are all optional jobs for which the wife can demand a pay, sex being the only obligation. In which case abstaining would be another ‘atheist’ action that a Kuwaiti feminist would have to undertake. Oh well…

brilliant idea! absolute genius!
and yea it is obligatory that a woman satisfies her 'man', if i remember my classroom religion lessons correctly - which i do cause when i heard this i questioned everything- if a woman refuses her husband, the 'angels' will curse her all night long... so Kuwaiti feminists will have to consider that too! loooool :)

of course - this is not necessarily the religion as much as its is the 'phallocentric/ male' interrpretation of the religion

Nazzal. we seem to have alot in common. Or are these pretty much universal artists and as such our tastes ain't as selective as we'd wish to believe?
