Islamic Clerics: Guilty of Breast Milk Fetish

"(June 5) -- Women in Saudi Arabia should give their breast milk to male colleagues and acquaintances in order to avoid breaking strict Islamic law forbidding mixing between the sexes, two powerful Saudi clerics have said. They are at odds, however, over precisely how the milk should be conveyed."

Now the mere fact that a fatwa about adult breast-feeding was deemed worthy of a 'fatwa' in the first place should be indication enough that we, somewhere have gone seriously awry...that's strange even as some fatwas tend to go. All of this bizarreness in order to establish "maternal relations" that would obviously preclude the possibility of sexual contact is crazy, even for the Muslim world. Can any Cleric issue a fatwa on anything he feels like?

Our beloved Mullahs have already covered enough weird topics banning Pokemon (Obviously Jewish) and Sponge Bob Square pants (Atrociously Gay), so what's next? A fatwa on taking naps during work (not that I'd ever do that....and get caught). or perhaps the number of toothpicks prescribed for post meal clean up and maybe culminating in a fatwa against Football...oops they already covered that one. However, you are allowed to if you are training for Jihad....just saying.

Then there is Misyar , which. Sort like prostitution but without the pay off. Sweet and innovative. It's like a legalized booty call; basically like a friend with benefits and you don' t have to financially support her anymore. So it's basically 'getting it on' for "getting it on's" sake...with religious permission. There is something oddly genius about this that only a man could come up with.

Sheikh Al Obeikan, an adviser to the Saudi royal court and consultant to the Ministry of Justice, set off a firestorm of controversy recently when he said on TV that women who come into regular contact with men who aren't related to them ought to give them their breast milk so they will be considered relatives.

"The man should take the milk, but not directly from the breast of the woman," Al Obeikan said, according to Gulf News. "He should drink it and then becomes a relative of the family, a fact that allows him to come in contact with the women without breaking Islam's rules about mixing."

Al Obeikan (Obi 'Yes You" Kan) made the statement after being asked on Television interview about a 2007 fatwa issued by an Egyptian scholar about adult breast-feeding, said that the breast milk ought to be pumped out and given to men in a glass.

Now, a sane person would imagine that there would be outrage or atleast a little debate. However, the only debate that followed his remarks was an announcement by another high-profile sheik, Abi Ishaq Al Huwaini (Obi Who, who proclaimed that men should suckle the breast milk directly from a woman's breast......(I'm Still In Shock)

Shortly after this debate errupted, a bus driver reportedly told one of the female teachers whom he drives regularly that for religious reasons he wanted to suckle milk from her breast. The teacher has threaten to file a lawsuit against him, her family may not feel so charitable. I wonder what Egyptian Gun Laws look like?

Now, one has to wonder where this perverted fatwa stems from? Under Islamic law, women are encouraged to breast-feed their children until the age of 2. It is not uncommon for sisters, for example, to breast-feed their nephews so they and their daughters will not have to cover their faces in front of them later in life. The custom is called being a "breast milk sibling." (trust me, I can't make this stuff up).

But under Islamic law, breast milk siblings have to be breastfed before the age of 2 in five "fulfilling" sessions. Islam prohibits sexual relations between a man and any woman who breastfed him in infancy. They are then allowed to be alone together when the man is an adult because he is not considered a potential mate. Apparently no one tracks the google search for the term 'Milf', 'Incest' or 'breast milk fetish'....oddly enough it's a rather popular fetish.

Moreover, the thought of a huge hairy face at a woman's breast does not evoke motherly or even brotherly feelings. It could go from the grotesque to the erotic but definitely not maternal."

Unlawful mixing between the sexes is taken very seriously in Saudi Arabia. In March 2009, a 75-year-old Syrian widow, Khamisa Mohammed Sawadi, living in the city of Al-Chamil, was given 40 lashes and sentenced to six months in prison after the religious police learned that two men who were not related to her were in her house, delivering bread to her.

One of the two men found in her house, Fahd, told the police that Sawadi breast-fed him as a baby so he was considered a son and had a right to be there. But in a later court ruling, a judge said it could not be proved that Fahd was her "breast milk son." Fahd was sentenced to four months in prison and 40 lashes, and the man who accompanied him got six months and 60 lashes.

The original adult breast-feeding fatwa was issued three years ago by an Egyptian scholar at Egypt's al-Azhar University, considered Sunni Islam's top university. Ezzat Attiya (Who is Zat At Eya?) was expelled from the university after advocating breast-feeding of men as a way to circumnavigate segregation of the sexes in Egypt. What can I say, he may be a freak, but he's ballsy.

Well, I do suppose it'll be more maternal if the man sucks the milk out from the woman breast. Perhaps the man should wear a diaper and the women must be obligated to talcum powder, change him and rock him to sleep. Cleaning up puke is definitely a given...As is spanking.

Are fetishes actually halal now? I imagine elbow sex, toe fetishes and ear lobes are next. Maybe even Tranny play. Do these guys ever bother issuing fatwas on things that actually matter? Like terrorism, tolerance, womens rights? How do they expect to spread the message of Islam if their primary audience appears to be sexual deviants....then again, it just might work....not.

How am I, as a (relatively) normal Muslim, supposed to take this seriously?

I have lost hope in 'muslimkind'...they are hopeless. they are a true manifestation of what Nietzche said, “Madness is the exception in individuals but the rule in groups” – Nietzsche, and well in their case madness at individual level ain't an exception either.

Alpha Za said...

Thanks for the comment rsh, I do feel that there is still hope, but it takes time, education and alot of balls. Hopefully we get alot of them.

Nietzche may have a point, but I think he liked being considered mad. Solid Ego trip.

Rukhsana Shama said...

Exactly, thats the point, madness is a quality until it is confined to individual but madness, in the mob is disaster.

Alpha Za said...

hmm, but in a democracy it is for all intents and purposes the mob that rules. And since we choose to live in a society that pretends to project democratic ideals, then doesn't that make us all mad? Hence it's not so much a quality as something inherent in all of us that tend to congregate with people, vote and what not.

@ Anon: Haha

Ghausia said...

See, this is why I drifted towards agnosticism. You know you need to jump ship when the entire crew starts losing its mind.

Alpha Za said...

@ Ghausia, more like the drunk senior officers. Usually you can just chuck them overboard.

Asad said...

The magnitude of ignorance here is appalling.
Do people know that women cannot just produce breast milk on a whim? :/

Alpha Za said...

@ Asad: Thanks for the comment; haha, I doubt that they are unaware of any women that aren't currently breastfeeding. Young marriages and an insane birth rate; that's the developing muslim for you in a nut shell.

I also doubt that they think women who aren't currently breastfeeding should be interacting with non family males in the first place!

Ghausia said...

They're all insane dude, organized religion screws you up. And omg yes I wanted to point out the fact that not every woman is lactating 24/7 but was too shy to plus I thought maybe I was wrong! (Hey, learning about your body is massively disgusting okay!)

Alpha Za said...

@ Ghausia: I don't think you can call them all insane, some are rather delightful, but they have a degree of common sense melded in with religion.

I think every muslim man wanted to point out to the clerics that all women aren't lactating 24/7 but then we'd all get in trouble for knowing why. Fear trumps right.

I'm not even going to pretend to know what a girl is going through as she 'learns about her body'. though I imagine it's the feeling one gets when one mistakes GEO for a news channel.

"Do people know that women cannot just produce breast milk on a whim? :/"

^Exactly what I thought while I was reading the post.

Alpha Za said...

@ Anuradha: Haha, maybe that's the point. The Clerics think that all women should be from the moment they hit puberty. maybe it's just a fetish or maybe they've idiots. I'll let God figure out that one.

Oh yea, don't think for a minute that those mutherfukkin terrorists aren't just as, or even more, perverted than anyone else. They want their turn at the engorged N1PPLE for sure. If that D1CKH3AD B1n Lad3n were here today (and not in the bottom of the ocean) he would be trying to get him some T1T milk.

Fo sho. Fo sho.
