The Truth about Goats

“Dubai convicts Little Red Riding Hood”

Human Rights Groups have expressed outrage at the 16-month prison sentence handed out to the popular fairy-tale heroine. Not content with imprisoning Norwegian rape victims, the Dubai courts have signaled their intent to come down hard on all female protagonists guilty of lewd behavior or in “possession of a vagina”.

English: Little Red Riding Hood, illustration ...

Clearly Little Red Riding Hood was asking to be eaten, wearing such provocative clothing. And is that alcohol I see in the basket? (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Although it was “Little Red” who first reported the incident to the police, the authorities quickly confiscated her red cape, basket and passport. While the “Big Bad Wolf” has a history of sexual violence and freely admits to swallowing “Granny”, it is Little Red who has been found guilty of extramarital sex and drinking the “wine” she was meant to be bringing to Granny’s house.

Dubai’s cosmopolitan and tax-free image is often at odds with its deeply conservative laws. An appeal based on the mitigating circumstances, that Little Red was delivering food to her sickly grandmother, is unlikely to succeed given that earlier this year Sleeping Beauty was arrested for being kissed in public to cure narcolepsy. Human Rights Watch has also been critical of the “less than humane” treatment of the Seven Dwarves as poorly paid construction workers in this popular tourist destination.

Despite both the “Lumberjack” and Granny attesting to hearing the Wolf threaten to eat Little Red with his “big mouth”, under United Arab Emirate law rape convictions can only be secured with four witnesses to the crime. In fact, all of Granny’s testimony is null and void due to her being the owner of cervix. UAE scientists have already “proven” that legal evidence corrupts the closer its proximity to ovaries.

    Imagine showing up in an Arab country with a vagina. It’s like she was asking for it!

        Naive, perhaps. What I thought the ‘update’ to the tale did was puncture the contradictions bewteen the image a country such as Dubai attempts to portray and the extreme social conservatism of its ruling elite. We could just call it no-holds-bar misogeny. Dubai may well sign up to various international obligations but then happily ignores the content and practice. They have been taught well. Countries such as Britain and the US have been making a historical career (and money) out of such behaviour for a long time.

    Hi Wrenfoe,

    Sorry, didn’t know how else to contact you!

    My name is Charles and I currently run a blog in Dubai, http://www.allxpats.com. I have been doing this now for the past year or so and while updating it and letting the website grow, I will now be moving onto my next venture. Which is why I am contacting you.

    As finding advertisers for your site in the UAE is not the easiest of things to achieve, I have decided to start an Affiliate Network in the UAE whereby businesses can offer a certain sum of money per click, lead or a percentage of commission to the blog/website owner who brought in that lead via the website owners unique link.

    Once logged into the website, you will be able to see your earnings, advertising programs you have joined, charts showing all your stats and much more.

    I am currently in university, 21, and this will be my first risky business venture, so trying to get as much research together as possible and people who would be interested in joining if it were good, easy to use, and did have relevant advertisers.

    PLEASE FILL IN THIS VERY FAST 5 Question Survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/5TCP5D7

    Sorry for the long email and once again, thank you very, very much for taking the time to read and answer the survey!

    If you ever need any help with anything just let me know, or want to tweet each other, tag each other in Facebook ect and so on.

    Thanks Again

    Charles Leahy
