Because women who straddled a motorcycle were “distracting” men from driving safely, a county in Kenya is proposing a law that could force women to sit sidesaddle while a man drives the motorcycle or bike. Kisumu County assembly members agreed that the sitting position of women straddling a bike, called ‘bet angewa,’ was unconstitutional and un-cultural. Because women were “exposing their bodies” by opening their legs on the bikes, men began losing respect for them. Now it is the safety and mobility of the women that will be put at risk — especially when they’re wearing long, flowing clothing hanging over the sides of the bike. Kisumu County is actually not the first place concerned about women straddling male bike riders; a city in Indonesia enacted a law requiring women to ride sidesaddle on bikes and motorcycles. Sure there’s a better way to solve this conundrum somehow? One that is less dangerous?  [Salon via Standard Media] [Image via MrJam.org]

Dragon Sighting!

OK, fine. It’s not a real dragon skull, but it seriously looks like one! Here at The Frisky, we really love ”Game of Thrones,” and so do the creators at blinkbox! To promote the availability of Season 3 of Game of Thrones on blinkbox (a pay-as-you-go site to watch TV and movies), a giant, life-size replica of a dragon skull has been constructed. The beach it resides on is famous for its fossils, so I can’t even imagine the excitement beach-goers have when they feast their eyes on this baby. Here’s a cool little video on how it was constructed. [Tampa Bay Times]
