FEMEN response to Sheikh Salah al-Luhaydan's fatwa against women's driving

Remember that highly original medical opinion by the Saudi Sheik:

A sheikh has warned Saudi women - who are currently not allowed to drive in the country - that getting behind the wheel could damage their ovaries and pelvis. Sheik Salah al-Luhaydan also claimed children of women drivers are born with 'disorders of varying degrees'. He told Saudi news website sabq.org: '[Driving] could have a reverse physiological impact. 'Physiological science and functional medicine studied this side [and found] that it automatically affects ovaries and rolls up the pelvis. This is why we find for women who continuously drive cars their children are born with clinical disorders of varying degrees.'
In search of a fitting response I have, of course, gone directly to the FEMEN site, and here it is:
"Dissemination of idiotic theories under the guise of female healthcare increases the risk of male impotence and withering of the right testicle", competently declares the female movement FEMEN in response to the Saudi "cleric" opining that driving is dangerous for female ovaries. Carriers of such cavemen's opinions should be placed in a burrow somewhere in the desert*.

Roads belong to women!
The quoted declaration is illustrated by a series of pictures, highly recommended. Here is a nice one**:

The demo happened near Saudi embassy in Kiev (Ukraine).

(*) I would say that the learned sheik is at least close to such a burrow, but who knows...

(**) In my opinion, but I wouldn't force it on you. So peruse the other pictures for your fave.
