“People will turn gay in #Saudi if Female drive ban is lifted” Cleric says

Correlations are a fickle equation. Remembering mathematics from highschool and statistics in university, correlation is the effect of one variable (x) on another variable (y). A high positive correlation gives a positive relationship between x and y, for example the hotter the weather, the more water you drink.

A negative correlation however, means that two items have absolutely no effect on one another, say for example…


Saudi Arabia

A few excerpts:

The report warns that allowing women to drive would ‘provoke a surge in prostitution, pornography, homosexuality and divorce’.

Within ten years of the ban being lifted, the report’s authors claim, there would be ‘no more virgins’ in the Islamic kingdom.

And it pointed out ‘moral decline’ could already be seen in other Muslim countries where women are allowed to drive.

Their report assessed the possible impact of repealing the ban in Saudi Arabia, the only country in the world where women are not allowed behind the wheel.

So your homework class is to decide whether there is a positive or negative correlation between the aforementioned factors. And please, try to be as objective as possible.
