Maybe the men should wear veils

Have your say

Looks like the eyes have had it.

Saudi women, who under strict Islamic law must be clad head to toe in black abaya cloaks in public, could now be forced to cover up their eyes - to stop arousing male onlookers.

The Saudi government are thinking of forcing women with particularly “tempting” eyes to wear veils.

Are we to assume that there will be guidelines set on which eyes are deemed the most alluring? And will the thousands employed by the committee to ensure Islamic laws are upheld get the job of deciding which eyes are sexy and which aren’t?

It could lead to all sorts of trouble, this. Those poor men landed with the job of gazing into all those sexy, lash-framed pools; how will they stop themselves from being overcome with lust?

And what about the poor women whose eyes aren’t deemed sexy? They could be well offended.

Can’t they see that the only reason eyes become extra seductive is because everything else is covered up?

If Saudi men cannot resist a pretty pair of eyes, why don’t they get the veils?
