Women should be banned from touching cucumbers, carrots, bananas, and zucchinis, says a European Muslim cleric, simply because they resemble the male penis and could prompt women to think of sex.
The Sheikh whose name has not been revealed, according to Bikya Masr, has suggested that women who need to cook with these ingredients should have the men in the family cut them up into small pieces. This shape-shift will reportedly banish all sexual thoughts from women’s minds.
Asked how they should avoid wanton thoughts while shopping for groceries, the cleric retorted that this is between “them and God.” Does this mean that men should stay away from pomegranates and peaches?
