I must ask this question. How stupid can people be? There is a petition on the White House website to ban 'straight men from driving cars'. Yes, they want President Obama to prevent all straight men from driving.

Now you are asking, why would they do that?

The petition reads as follows:

In many public schools, there are dress codes that prohibit students from wearing tank-tops, tube tops, and shorts that are deemed "too short," as these could distract male students.

If men can be this easily distracted by women's bodies, then this raises a variety of safety concerns.

Many busy highways have billboards that use sexually suggestive imagery of women's bodies.

Women also often go about their everyday lives near roadways wearing tanktops and short shorts.

If straight men (and men of other sexual orientations who are attracted to women) can be distracted by the mere sight of a woman's thigh, then it is a public safety hazard to allow them to operate vehicles that weigh thousands of pounds at up to 75mph past these inevitable distractions.

The more than 12,000 people that have signed the petition so far actually believe that men are to be blamed for automobile accidents because of sexy advertisements on billboards.

I believe it is only logical to ban gay women from driving as well since they see these same sexy billboards too.

This would leave only straight women and gay men driving. That just doesn't seem fair to me, so I guess the only thing left to do is take down all the billboards in the US and let everybody keep driving. But I'm sure all the Billboard Companies will come up with a better solution because putting them out of business will hurt our economy even more.

This is enough to drive me just as crazy as those idiots who came up with this insane petition.
