  1. With the outfit she is wearing, they may be right. But I’m not offended. I kind of like it. M in Texas, you want to try to duplicate that pose?

  3. Apparently the 2004 tsunami clean out was ineffective.

    Teh crazies, like roaches, survived.

    Or maybe infested again from another location.

  4. mech, get with the program. The Tsunami was Allah’s punishment for Indonesia not being strict enough. Now it seems that all along the women there have been on double secret probation.

  5. She couldn’t sit behind me and hold on, but could I sit behind her and hold on?

    Just curious.

  7. Not that I’m a great fan of this law and most other forms of public decency legislation, but the reporting on it in the Blaze link is factually incorrect.

    Of course the rule sounds absurd, because it is. It obviously makes it impossible for women to ride as passengers given that they cannot do so safely while perched side-saddle, their arms dangling to and fro. And, since straddling is the verboten act here, it is also makes it clear that women are now forbidden from actually driving themselves on motorbikes as well.

    No, it does not make that clear at all. The proposed law refers solely to female passengers, not to female drivers and the thrust of the rationalisation is more concerned with straddling and holding the driver than with the curves. Indonesian urban motorbikes tend to be scooters, anyway, which allow the driver to avoid straddling almost entirely. So while it is stupid, it is not the blanket ban on female mobility imagined by the overeager editor.

    Incidentally, side-saddle passenger riding is not uncommon in South-East Asia. You’ll see a lot of it e.g. in Vietnam, which is certainly unaffected by consideration for Muslim sensibilities.

  14. Geezus, Yarbouti, it’s a friggin’ joke!

    What are you, some kind’a CAIR agent who goes around disciplining infidels for making fun of the uncriticizable while wearin’ a “Behead Those Who Criticize Islam” t-thirt? You can kill us, but you can’t make us respect the absurd.

  15. Even if she wears pants?

    Comment by geezerette — January 8, 2013 @ 2:00 pm

  16. But can she straddle the driver? Can I volunteer to drive?

    Comment by TheOldMan — January 8, 2013 @ 3:19 pm

  17. Now just which position is preferable for the woman on a motorcycle?

    Comment by mech — January 8, 2013 @ 3:29 pm

  18. Well, I’m gonna pretend it’s Melissa…

  19. Be still my beating heart! If I saw a girl with THOSE legs riding a motorcycle that way it could cause me to auger in.

    No, don’t ban them. Those were God given legs and well, it sure gladdens the heart of us older folk!

    Not sure of the translation on that tub,
    but I think it says “baby food.”

  25. DougM, if so, then either interpretation of that phrase would be accurate.

  30. #8, Peggy U: I noticed the shoes too – yeah, they are cute.

  31. She’s wearing a helmet.
    When I rode in short skirts, I always had the wind in my hair and usually higher heels, and I was riding bitch on the back.
    No, I no longer have pics of that stage in my life ;)
    Some days, when the sun is out and it is warm… I miss it!
    That being said, the people can screw the animal of their choosing, but a woman’s LEGS bring out the sharia nuts?
    *shakes head*
    not wearing a damn burkha!

    Are you “not wearing a burkha” right now?
    [ducks]
    (What? Hey, she said it, not me!)

  34. Melissa in Texas: Thanks. You just ruined the rest of my afternoon. I was previously going to get up and go do something. I forget what it was. Now? Not so much.
