“An unveiled woman is like a bus – everyone gets to ride her.
“A woman who is not wearing a full-chador (all encompassing covering) but wearing a head-scarf and manteau (overcoat type covering) is like a taxi – a limited number get to ride her.
“But a woman wearing a chador, like my wife, is like a donkey – only one person gets to ride her.”
I read that aloud to Emily and her immediate reaction was:
“He just compared his wife to a donkey? He’s the ass!” which blew me away. After all, I was thinking the unwholesome attitude towards women in general was the main point, but the much scarier point is that someone like him is married.
