    Women are BANNED from Starbucks in Saudi Arabia with signs posted in Arabic and English on doors telling them to send 'their driver' to get their coffee instead




    Women were barred from a Starbucks in Saudi Arabia and told to send 'their driver' to get a coffee for them instead after religious police noticed a 'gender barrier' wall had collapsed, reports claim.
    Signs in Arabic and English were put up on doors to the coffee shop telling women not to enter.
    The posters read: ‘Please no entry for ladies, only send your drivers to order. Thank you.’

    Furious: Signs in Arabic and English were put up on doors to the coffee shop. One woman who wasn't allowed into the Starbucks tweeted: '#Starbucks store in Riyadh refused 2 serve me just because I'm a WOMAN'
    One woman who wasn't allowed into the Starbucks shop wrote on Twitter: ‘#Starbucks store in Riyadh refused 2 serve me just because I'm a WOMAN & asked me 2 send a man instead.’
    It has been claimed that the country’s Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the most influential law enforcing authority in the Gulf Kingdom, ordered the café’s management to ban women, according to Arabic language daily 'Al Weaam'.

    The commission is said to have issued the notice after its inspectors spotted the collapse of a gender-separation wall during a routine walk around a market in the capital Riyadh.
    It is understood that management told police the wall had collapsed on a number of occasions because of regular customer stampedes.
    Saudi Arabia is known for its gender segregation, with women requiring a male guardian approval to travel or work outside of the home.
    In public spaces such as restaurants, beaches, amusement parks or banks, women are required to enter and exit through special doors.

    Disgust: News of the ban drew condemnation on Twitter as a photograph of the sign spread on social media
    A Starbucks spokesman told Cosmopolitan.com that the Riyadh store was undergoing a renovation to build a divide that will accommodate single people as well as families.
    He denied the claims a gender-separation wall had collapsed.
    In a statement the company said: ‘Starbucks in Saudi Arabia adheres to the local customs by providing separate entrances for families as well as single people.
    ‘All our stores provide equal amenities, service, menu, and seating to men, women and families. We are working as quickly as possible as we refurbish our Jarir store, so that we may again welcome all customers in accordance with local customs.’

    People are fucking retarded.

    Journalism has really sunk to a new low here, completely misrepresenting the actual situation.

    The story isn't that women aren't allowed to go to Starbucks, it's that they temporarily shouldn't go to THAT Starbucks.

    Yes, there's some fucked up religeous things going on over there, but that sign isn't a "stay out" it's a warning that the gender separation barrier that's normally there, isn't.

    It's hard to say if this is just accommodating religeous folks or if there are penalties if women do go in, but this is no more of a story than if a rabbi warned a bunch of Jewish folks not to eat a certain batch of beef because the kosher process had somehow not been followed.

    What a shit story

    my guess is there are penalties from the morality cops.
    The gender segregation thing makes me sick that it exists in my own religion. I can't understand how any father of girls can be okay about it

    Agreed, a country where most can afford a personal driver! than how bad is that place really? I studied and work hard to make a good living but still have to walk my ass in to get a coffee.

    That sort of stuff should be respected, because it's people's religion :grad:

    We need some of that in our Western society.

    I mean, why not bring back some 500 year old bullshit into the modern world? What can go wrong?

    Starbucks should close down. I won't purchase another one. Not that they will miss my money.

    The renovation adds a few more stories to the building. This way, when they throw a queer to his death, it's assured he'll die instantly rather than be maimed.

    Shhhtarbuchs forces it's U.S. customers into discussions about race, but do business in a country who's culture and practices would be condemned by them if it happened here.


    Cunts.

    I for one am not opposed to an Islamic takeover. :grad:

    It will muzzle the feminists into their rightful place. Then they can fetch me my ham sandwich.



    Well, maybe not ham...
