Pole-Dancing And/Or Happy Women Should Avoid Turkey, Deputy PM

Tyler Durden's picture


If you're a woman looking for some fun... we strongly urge you to avoid Turkey. Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc has some strong opinions on the female of the species. First, on Monday, he exclaimed women needed to be "morally upright" and "not laugh out loud in public." And now, the senior Turkish minister, that some women "don’t have self control and can’t stop themselves from climbing up a pole." Of course his actions sparked an avalanche of social media posts of women laughing-out-loud and on-the-pole... which is ironic given that Twitter reports that Turkey accounts for 43% of all global requests for content removal.


No laughing out loud...

Bulent Arinç, who is also the spokesperson for the Justice and Development Party (AK Party), said on Monday women needed to be “morally upright” and “not laugh out loud in public,” the news agency quoted him as saying.


He said women should not “laugh out loud in front of everyone” and needed to “remain descent” at all times. The conservative Turkish politician also said a woman needed to be able to discriminate effectively between what was decent and what was not.




"Stop giving us speeches in morality, instead, tell us about the money you’ve stolen,” btürkmen, another user wrote in Turkish, clearly referring to the corruption scandal Erdogan and his entourage have been facing since December.

And get off that pole...

Arinc said in televised comments Wednesday that those remarks had been taken out of context and he had wanted to comment on the “general rules of morality.”


But he added: “There are women who leave on holiday without their husbands and others who don’t have self control and can’t stop themselves from climbing up a pole.”


“Anyone can live like this. I can’t be angry against you but I can just have pity for you,” he said.

Which prompted exactly the opposite reaction amongst Twitter users...





Arinc’s latest remarks appear to have been prompted by the wife of a prominent Turkish footballer who posted a picture of herself pole dancing on Instagram with the slogan “when I see a pole, I just can’t resist.”


The woman, the wife of Caner Erkin, a prominent player for Istanbul giants Fenerbahce, has since deleted the image from her account. Mimicking the Twitter campaign Tuesday over Arinc’s comments on laughing, bloggers posted pictures of their pets climbing up poles or flags proudly flying from poles.




“We know what kind of society, woman and morality you are trying to reconstruct. We are following it closely but we don’t like it. And we don’t choose it,” she wrote.

Which is ironic given the following:

  • Twitter: 43% of Global Requests to Remove Content From Turkey

So there is a nation with a lower transparency than the US.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say that the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister has women laughing a lot when he pulls out his unit.  Turkeys, the birds, should be sueing someone for naming them after that country.

Kemal Ataturk was Jewish. This is why it is illegal in Turkey to condem his behaviour (like in Germany where it is illegal to expose the Holohoax). One of the leaders of the Young "Turks", who organised the genocide of 1.5 million Armenian Christians, went to form the Irgun terrorist organisation in Israel. The Turkish military is riddled with Jews. This is why there is tension between the military and current crop of politicians. Control of the media means that Jews can create "scandals" on demand to get a problem candidate out of office.

"As always election campaigns are staged as an enter­
tainment, a diversion for the people; they are permitted
to think and act as if they are really making their own
government, but it is always the Jews that win. And if
after having elected their man or group, obedience is not
rendered to the Jewish control, then you speedily hear of
"scandals” and “investigations” and “impeachments” for
the removal of the disobedient."

Oh, it might hark back to some bad Muzzie feelings about on September 11 in 1683 when the forces of the western world led by a Polish chap by the name of Sobieski defeated a Mizzie army laying siege upon the city of Vienna. 

Please do note the importance of the date.
9.11 was not a random calendrical artifice.

Actually TT, the Turks are not at all badly disposed toward the Poles. Due to the ass whopping that they got at the gates of Vienna (as per above post), the Turks always created a place for the Polish delegation at any international confernece at they hosted subsequently. And this was even when the country of Poland disappeared from the map due to the various partitions. 

But those were different times...

Why not let females be whores the way they want to be rather than the way you want them to be?  This isn't about morality or being upright.  But remember there is a cost to whoredom.

With his version of the "ideal" moral woman no one gets laid.  I for one applaud any woman willing to climb up a pole.  Nothing greater than a woman's laughter.  I've never heard of one wishing to silence laughter.  How odd.

Not sure how you expect to have "morally decent, upright women" while the men are free to be "pigs".  "Immoral" men need women wiling and able to act in an accommodating fashion or there will be no balance.

This guy is probably the most debauched person alive.  History is rife with the outspoken men pertaining to the  morality of others having a hidden lifestyle that is diametrically opposed to the words they espouse, especially those with big religious followings.  Swaggert is the first to come to mind, then Jim Baker, numerous priest and the list goes on.

I suppose my double entendre of "climbing a pole" was lost in translation.  I wasn't referring to climbing a stripper pole.  Not the first time I've had a swing and a miss.  Won't be the last either.  Personally never found the strip club interesting.  Never understood the notion of getting up close and personal view, paying of money for the viewing, being tantalized,  yet not being allowed to act all the while paying for overpriced "cheap" alcoholic drinks assuming any alcohol is used.  

Not my way to spend time or money but not judging the customer nor the employee.  The missing point to many is that without the male customer, (the immoral equivalent not held to any standard or responsibility by this man) the demand as it were, there would be no reason for supply, the "immoral" women hired to climb on a pole in both the stripper club sense and the other sense I was referring to.  

The morality should be equally shared by both men and women, not just the burden of the woman which this person seems to demand.

Scary to think that, for a brief period, people thought of Turkey as a Democracy and almost let it into the EU.
