Apparently, Muslims in Saudi Arabia are taught that shopping and driving halves a woman's brain - which was only half of a man's brain to begin with.
A Saudi cleric has been slated for saying that women don’t deserve to drive because they only have a quarter of a brain, RT reports.
Sheikh Saad Al-Hijri was also banned from performing his religious duties because of his outrageous comments.
Al-Hijri made his brain-numbing remarks at a lecture aptly titled, “The evils of women driving.” Women are banned from driving altogether in the notoriously conservative country, with many jailed for attempting to.
According to the cleric, women only have half a brain to begin with, but, when they attempt to factor shopping into their feeble minds, that halves again and they “end up with only a quarter,” as cited by the Jerusalem Post.
A video of Al-Hijri’s sexist musings was circulated online, provoking a backlash from many in the kingdom who used the hashtag “Al-Hijri says women have a quarter of a brain” to voice their anger.
