Saudi Arabia: Panel of Scientists admits Women are Mammals, yet 'Not Human'.
A panel of scientists from Saudi Arabia has admitted that women are mammals, but ruled that they are “not human,”
Hoax or Fact:
A seemingly 'controversial' story doing rounds online, especially on social media sites like Facebook, states that a Panel of Saudi Arabian Scientists have admitted Women are Mammals, but ruled that they are 'not Human'. Thankfully, the story that many people believed to be true is not a fact.
The Story and Origin
The story reportedly from the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh detailed about an unprecedented ruling that a panel of Saudi scientists has concluded that women are actually mammals, not just objects without souls as previously thought, granting them the same rights as other mammal species like camels and goats. The verdict which supposedly came out just few hours before the International Women’s Day on 8th March 2016 was described as “historic” by some experts and advocacy groups for women’s rights.
All these claims originated from an article on World News Daily Report website worldnewsdailyreport.com and the offensive content brought in strong reactions from many people, especially women.
Fiction and Satire
Yes, World News Daily Report is simply an entertainment website that publishes satirical and fictional stories as mentioned in their Disclaimer information page:
"..WNDR assumes however all responsibility for the satirical nature of its articles and for the fictional nature of their content. All characters appearing in the articles in this website – even those based on real people – are entirely fictional and any resemblance between them and any persons, living, dead, or undead is purely a miracle."
The same website earlier published hoax stories like a 600-pound woman has given birth to a 40-pound baby in Australia, and German scientists prove there is life after death. So in short, the stories saying a panel of scientists from Saudi Arabia has admitted that women are mammals, but ruled that they are “not human” are hoaxes that originated from a satirical and fictional publication.
