It amazes me how ignorant some people can be. I read in the Star that a municipal council in Kelantan has issued a directive to disallow lipstick and high heels targetted at Muslim women in business outlets. This is to prevent rape and illicit sex and protect women's dignity.
Damn...I didn't know ruby red lips and the click-clack of high heels would turn men into sexual maniacs. When I put on lipstick, hubby would wipe his face when I kiss him. When I wear heels, he'll say "Those things are really bad for your feet, you know".
I sincerely hope this news was just wrongly reported by the newspapers. It's embarassing to read about Muslims making such stupid statements when, time and again, research has shown that rape is not about sex and beauty and/or revealing clothes do not invite rape. Perhaps they should spend more time educating men and punishing rapists severely instead of suffocating women with more and more rules and regulations.
