Saudi Men Blame Women For Rise In "Molestation" According To Survey

According to a survey, the majority of Saudi men blame makeup for the increase in public molestation of women.

Is that surprising? No.

Saudi men believe women are to blame for the rising cases involving molestation of females on the grounds they are seduced by women’s excessive make up.

The findings were included in a survey conducted by the Riyadh-based King Abdul Aziz Centre for National Dialogue and involved 992 males and females.

The survey, carried by Saudi newspapers, found that 86.5 per cent of the men polled believe that women’s exaggeration in wearing make-up is the main cause of the rise in molestation cases in public places in the conservative Gulf Kingdom.

About 80 per cent of the total persons polled believe lack of deterrent penalties and the absence of specific anti-molestation laws are also to blame for the phenomenon.

The report said 91 per cent of the respondents, all aged above 19, believe another key factor is the “poor religious sentiment” while nearly 75 per cent said the problem is caused by lack of awareness campaigns and warning notices at most public places.
No warning signs? Really?  They need to be told it's not okay to sexually harrass or molest women?

Basically what this survey says is that Saudi men have no clue how to conduct themselves in  a civilized manner, and feel the need to blame someone and not their lack of self control.
