Fatwa says to breastfeed men

The fatwas that are routinely issued by Muslim clerics never cease to amaze me for their ridiculousness but this one takes the cake (or should I say milk?). From the report, a Saudi cleric has issued a fatwa saying that women should breast feed men “to avoid illicit mixing between the sexes”.

I was flabbergasted for a moment but then started laughing. Doesn’t breastfeeding bring the sexes into contact? So, how will it avoid the “illicit mixing”?  What if a woman is not producing milk?  See here for a background on the fatwa.

Women in Saudi Arabia are trying to take this fatwa to their advantage by threatening to breastfeed their drivers since they are not allowed to drive.
