In Bahrain there was a big ho-ha a few years ago about banning mannequins altogether as they were against islam and some locals in Muharraq where apparently caught 'leaning against the display windows playing pocket billards'

OMG - puleeeeeeeeeeeeease

Well...If people get aroused by watching and leering mannequins, then I think the real women should pull their act together...

I thought they should leave them leering "if that's what they like" keep the 'real' women safe.

I see the balance is changing in Bahrain with the Mullahs having their say - no more BINGO!

It won't just be a causeway that bring KSA and Bahrain together soon
