Trouble

It’s a universally accepted fact that women are dangerous; and if you differ then you’re either a woman, a child, or are not part of the universe. Think Eve, Helen of Troy, Lady Macbeth, Jezebel, Delilah, Senator Palmer’s wife, Monica Lewinsky, Cleopatra, Angelina Jolie, and you’ll see what I mean. If you’re taking issue with any of the afore mentioned figures, you’re not keeping your eye on the ball; focus please! Anyway like I was saying, women are trouble, Eve-il even, sometimes momentously but mostly in subtle, unremarkable ways such as the way they laugh, and the provocative clothes they wear, which instigate poor defenceless men to rape and defilement. And which at least cause men to commit adultery in their hearts. That, I learnt from one2one a program I came upon while channel surfing yesterday. On that very astonishing show, one of the hosts went to the streets, accosted a few people and coerced them into admitting that they were sinners. He asked the respondents, among other questions, whether they’d ever lusted after members of the opposite sex. The answer was a unanimous yes; perhaps because none of the people sampled were gay. Our guide through the sordid world of sinners obligingly informed the respondents that they were adulterers; even when the objects of their lust were their “women”, which said something for his sanctimony but much more for his want of women in his life! All this in order to prove that bullying can be an effective means of showing people the error of their ways. Nothing was said of women lusting after men, so ladies knock yourselves out!
Women’s insidious corruption of men is a concern to upstanding people of all societies. But solutions are hard to come by. So yesterday when a caller to the Christian Voice, a talk show on Uganda Television network proposed government intervention to solve the scourge, I was intrigued. It just might work, I thought.
So when I heard that the Iranians were putting 200 extra policemen on the streets of Tehran to enforce Islamic dress code amongst women, I was over-joyed. It warms my heart that not only a good minds applying themselves to the threat posed by women but resources are also being committed to the fight to combat the problem.
As a woman, I am unaware of any perilous powers in my possession but I accept the possibility that I am dangerous. And I’ll take the word of learned people on it.

Hey dear, hilarious post, so pray tell if women are so evil what's to keep the good men who have been posted for clothing duty from being sucked in?

Nice post...

Those that insist on enforcing women’s dress codes which, in the most conservative examples, force women to go about in what could be viewed as ‘sacks’ with eye holes cut in them are not, in my view, protecting the honour of women. They are rather dishonouring themselves by demonstrating that they don’t have the strength of character, sincerity of spirit or personal will to control their own basest instincts. The emotional (EQ) and spiritual (SQ) quotients of intelligence that need to be developed through effort seem to be lacking in many. IQ is a ‘fluke’ and is not enough; the other two quotients are essential in large amounts to overcome issues of personal stupidity. Am I being kind or is it that many of these so called protectors of women suffer from plain old ‘dumbness’ borne of a cultural indoctrination that looks to the past and pleads for the return of the ‘dark ages’! I know the issue of increasing levels of personal sovereignty is difficult for some to get their limited narrow minds around however, lets hope that those who are oppressors ‘in the name of god’ mature and get the idea eventually. I don’t thing that thinking responsible people should need to be either ‘helpless sheep’ or ‘dutiful slaves’.
