Islamic cleric bans women from touching bananas
Source: Times of India / Bikya Masr

NEW DELHI: An unnamed Islamic cleric based in Europe has issued a ban on women touching fruits and vegetables resembling the male sexual organ to avoid "sexual thoughts".

The Egyptian news website Bikya Masr on Wednesday quoted the cleric whose diktat featured in an article on el-Senousa, a religious publication. The cleric has said that women should not even get close to bananas or cucumbers. "If women wish to eat these food items, a third party, preferably a male related to them such as their a father or husband, should cut the items into small pieces and serve," the cleric dictated.

According to the cleric, bananas and cucumbers "resemble the male penis" and therefore could arouse women or "make them think of sex." The cleric also added carrots and zucchini to the list of forbidden foods for women.

The news about this latest diktat against women went viral on the web with liberal Muslims feeling enraged and embarrassed. Repression of women in ultra-conservative Islamic societies has been an intense subject of debate throughout the world.

23. Haven't seen the Christine O'Donnell videos against masturbation? They were a hoot. Same thing.
But the real issue is telling people what thoughts are not allowed, and what to with their own bodies, singularly, in their spare time. The Dominonist movement that Christine, Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin are using to win elections with church members across the country *would* do such a thing.

Even if they aren't doing it in front of cameras, they are doing it in front of their main support groups, religious right, fundamentalist churches. The O'Donnell video that went viral was not made public by her. And all those things are still being discussed.

They're going after public education to eliminate secular education and bring about a theocracy. They're rapidly completing this task in some areas. The proof is mandating trans-vaginal ultrasounds in women in Texas and other states, violating their bodies to do so, to harrass them for legal abortion procedures. So the principle is here, all it'll take is time to get right in the face of people legally here.

They're already making employment and social services (when privatized) meet a religious litmus test when they gain control of communities and legislatures. This is edict is on the same idea, taken to a ridiculous extreme with a captive female audience there, which the religious right is pushing here.

I've seen the videos of them saying women should not vote, don't need educations, need to focus on being homemakers only. Also attended churches, well-to-do congregations where this basic propaganda is taking over. I and other progressive believers were non-plussed when the women in women's home Bible studies, saying women should not speak in public, the church, or even in our study about such weighty matters as God and Scripture.

That place morphed from an open minded, giving church with people with introspection and working out what love for your fellow man was about, into an anti-government regulation, support the Bush wars, anti-poor and anti-abortion, etc. church.

They were not uneducated, but they were very wealthy people and brainwashed. They voted pure GOP as time went on and I saw women who attended who were open and had been educated and had jobs, go home to be homemakers and begin to spout the 'women should not speak' line. It's coming.

87. But this is different
Being allowed to say stupid stuff is what America is all about (what do you think would happen to people like us in Iran - for speaking out about things like contraception, abortion, etc?). That is waaaaay different that putting the force of law on something as ridiculous as this.

In a country this big and diverse, you're going to have those who want to preserve a time that never really happened (Father Knows Best type show were always fantasies). It's up to the men, women and the young in those districts to keep from going backwards. I know it's easy from a place like New York to make fun of stuff like this and I do realize that my life would be much more difficult in any deep red district but I will fight like hell for the women who have to live in such places. And as bad as some of those places are (blows me away we still have dry counties in the US), I would much rather live there than in a place that hangs its homosexuals. The comparison to Iran is ludicrous.

26. How about....
Forcing a woman to look at a sonogram picture of her fetus if she wants an abortion is far more disgusting than telling a woman not to handle certain fruits!

The poster was very correct in voicing concern as to what the Religious right would do if they have full control of the government...You had better expect Christian stupidity to be forced down everyone's throats because if not then you will be in for a big surprise!

88. Laws like this have NEVER been
on our books (outlawing women touching veggies?!!) and that's a far cry from what you're talking about. Even the judge in TX put that heinous law you're referring to on hold. We are never going to be like Iran in that way and to suggest we will is nothing but hyperbole.

Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 10:05 AM by doc03
but judging from some of the religious right I know it is not that far fetched. I went to a family reunion a few years back, someone brought a TV to watch a ballgame on and one of the fundie women jumped in front of the TV set every time a beer commercial came on.

29. don't forget the zucchinis!!!!
When I was in my twenties a friend, for a b-day joke, gave me a zucchini that looked exactly like a phallus. I think zealots use sexual suppression to control women. Of course, this really tops the cake, a long with women driving in SA will become more sexually promiscuous. Women drive in Iran, are they now more promiscuous? Just more heavy handed control by men with little thingies--making sure their ego is intact and reminding women they are mere chattel.

Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 02:31 PM by AnneD
I once got a wire and plug and secured it into a cucumber as a gift for a friendss bachlorette party. I called it a veggibrator. I have also made rather elegant house slippers out of 4 maxi pads.

I have also made gag gifts for my male friends using paper clips and washers, and another with a wisp of cotton, a snip of thread and a toothpick.

I am an equal opportunity offender. :evilgrin:

40. don't you know the men can have sexual thoughts
it's up to women to keep men from having thoughts about them. No exposing hair or limbs or they might jump on you like some primal beast. Of course, an act of rape is not violence, it's because the woman was so darned sexually alluring that made them do it. So a child or elderly woman who gets raped, is it also because they are so darned sexually compelling. And, are they also supposed to kill themselves because the men cannot control their lust?

To me, this mindset is also an insult to men. That men are like beasts that cannot control themselves, and that blame usually lies with the woman.

31. So how does this not promote homosexuality?
"' . . . a third party, preferably a male related to them such as their a father or husband, should cut the items into small pieces and serve,' the cleric dictated."

And two ways, too!

One: By handling these sexually charged phallic fruits and vegetables, the latent homosexual urges will be awakened. A banana could be the gateway phallus to all-out GAY!

Two: Isn't cooking women's work? Men might get ideas! First, a little innocent fruit and vegetable chopping, then a light fruit salad, then an unnatural obsession with pictures of Julia Child (sorry Julia,but you were kind of masculine looking); then, Steak Tartare for the whole family and tickets to Kathy Griffin live.

82. Actually, homosexuality is treated with less severity that premarital sex in some Islamic countries!
Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 01:51 PM by Shoe Horn
Often with the punishment for the former being a lashing, and the punishment for the latter being death.
Trying to find the documentary I saw this in, something on LinkTV no doubt, will edit in a link when I find it.


Edit:
FOUND IT!!!(also changed 'most' to 'some' in title :blush: )
"The Miscreants of Taliwood"
http://www.linktv.org/programs/miscreants

Here's a yt clip, lol, priceless, such a great doc:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2Hwrqhv-kc

...it's about a lot more than just homosexuality.

"If truth be told, Gittoes was probably fortunate to live through the first thirty seconds of Miscreants. Fortunately, he was only roughed up a bit while filming Islamists building a bonfire of CDs and DVDs in Islamabad, a city that Gittoes reminds viewers contains nuclear weapons. However, as Gittoes pursues his story, he becomes increasingly a part of his own film, at considerably further risk to his own well being.
(...)
Pulling no punches, Gittoes explains how the extreme segregation of the sexes caused most men in the North-West provinces to go on the down-low, regularly engaging in homosexual sex, despite their hetero orientation. Again, Gittoes is probably lucky to be alive."

From this review:
http://jbspins.blogspot.com/2011/11/gittoes-at-afa-misc...

Wow, guy has guts like nobody's business.

What is it with these religions? I wonder if the folks that invented all these religions were just guys, (they all were guys, we notice), just weren't able to masturbate for some reason that day when they invented their own religion.

39. This story is stupid and at best third hand
Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 10:35 AM by pschoeb
The Times of India, which has a pretty poor editorial history, is reporting from an article in Bikya Masr, which is an online only "news" site run by an American Joseph Mayton who lives in Cairo, which is reporting on an article in el-Senousa, which I can't even track down what or who publishes this, In fact a search for el-Senousa will just bring up numerous links to this "story" in all the worlds trash publishing.

The story doesn't name the cleric, nor even name what country the cleric is in, just a vague "in Europe". But these kinds of incredibly poorly sourced stories make lots of revenue for trash papers, blogs and forums.
