Oh, come on!

Strangest news story I read this morning: the dilemma of selling lingerie in Saudi Arabia. I wouldn't like purchasing lingerie without fitting rooms, or measurements, size based on what a man thinks would fit me. And if I would be uncomfortable with that situation, I can barely imagine how women in Saudi Arabia must feel. This is the kind of news story that just makes me want to say to the whole society who made this bizarre situation possible: Oh come on! Pull yourselves together.
