Emo Girls Arrested by Saudi Arabian Relgious Police

Emo girls arrested for being emo girls? Being emo is an arrestable offense in Saudi Arabia? The headline here may sound ridiculous or funny but it's far from it. Once again the liberal 'feminst' group collective silence is deafening. It seems only the conservative blogoshpere is talking about this:

(AFP, Breitbart) Saudi Arabia's religious police have arrested 10 "emo" women for allegedly causing a disturbance in a coffee shop, Al-Yaum newspaper reported on Saturday.

The coffee shop owner in the eastern city of Dammam called the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice to complain after the young women, dressed and made up in the "emo" fashion, apparently began disturbing other clients.

The religious police then called their parents to come and collect the women, and to sign pledges that the girls would not repeat their ostensibly offensive un-Islamic behaviour and dress.

According to recent reports, growing numbers of urban young Saudi women are latching on to the emo fashion popular from Japan to Europe and the Americas.

The trend is characterised by wearing skinny black jeans, tennis shoes, colourful T-shirts bearing the names of emo bands, heavy make up and sharply chopped and sometimes radically coloured hair-dos.

While Saudi women normally must appear in public shrouded by all-black abayas and headscarves, some daringly open their abayas in places such as malls and coffee shops to reveal more trendy outfits underneath.



....skinny black jeans, tennis shoes, colorful T-shirts, heavy make up and sharply shopped hair-dos.

Sounds like the ladies seen at Comic-con or the CES show, no? Who knows what is actually underneath a glorified moo-moo? Perhaps this is the Saudi police state equivalent of the fat police here in the United States....
