    Technical question: can a married (heterosexual obviously) couple with no kids eat breakfast together in Saudi? Or are they not eligible for the "family" section until they've got a child?

    So much for MBS modernising the Kingdom by force and putting a leash on the morality police eh?

    It always amazes me when a man having a meal with a woman is somehow questionable behavior. There's something sick and perverted about believing there's something sexual about it. It's people who believe that who should be arrested (or neutered), as a hazard to the public.

    StoneRoad heckling from the back!

    Can't believe that such behaviour is effectively illegal because of religion

    Is it not a crime for a woman to be seen with a man who she is not related/married to?

    I think you're conflating morality and law. You can make anything illegal and it may not be immoral, such as gum chewing. There's also plenty of things that are immoral, but not illegal like predatory lending.

    It's a sad state of affairs but as much as I may think their laws are outlandish and draconian, they are their laws, and when in Rome.

    It would depend on the venue I think but it would be fine in any of the major hotels. They wouldn't care too much if it was kaffirs doing it. I have a vague recollection of eating a meal with a female colleague in Riyadh years ago without either of us being whipped by the mutawa.

    It's not because of religion. Plenty of muslims get on just fine without any of this foolishness.

    One of the reasons that SA ranks so low on my potential travel list. There's so many interesting places in the world, why bother unless you have unlimited time and money (which I don't)?

    When in Rome just accept any and all injustices visited upon you or anyone else?

    Yep. Another example of someone who should be locked up (or neutered) to protect the public. Does anyone think a "Christian" taliban is going to be better than the Muslim version?

    No, when in Rome, disrespect their culture and break their laws :rolleyes:

    It's not culture if it's forcibly imposed by the state.

    Is there an alternative that you’re about to enlighten us with?

    Almost as If the common factor was not any particular religion or culture, but simply the authoritarian male's ubiquitous hatred of women.

    Not defending or excusing something that's obviously bullshit?

    Yet the woman wasn't arrested. Can you explain that one away?
