excuse me you are DOING IT WRONG

As you all may know, a Saudi woman was recently sentenced to 200 lashes for being raped. …excuse me, my bad, 90 lashes for being in public with a man she wasn’t related to, being raped, and then getting another 110 tacked on for having the unmitigated gall to appeal.

What’s wrong with this picture?

Or, more precisely: what’s missing from this picture?

So apparently, shopping is a bigger issue than the fact that, y’know, a woman has been sentenced to some pretty goddamn cruel and unusual punishment for nothing but being in public with a guy while in possession of a uterus. Thanks for the help dispelling that stereotype, folks. Mighty kind of you.

Go ahead. Dig around. You won’t find a single mention of this on the NOW website. Not one.
