Negotiable Assets

For the first time ever

women in Saudi Arabia
are allowed both to vote
and to run

in elections

and Uber has teamed up
with the Al-Nahda Philanthropic Society for Women

to offer them free rides
to the polls

since they are still
barred from driving.

Maybe because
unlike with the supposedly un-Christian
red Starbucks cups

he hasn't yet found

some random guy on YouTube
ranting about it

Donald Trump hasn't proposed
a registry or a ban on women

and they'll probably
get to keep voting

as long as they're attractive.
