    A mock story is going viral about scholars from Saudi Arabia making a “surprising” and unprecedented discovery that women are in fact mammals and therefore should have “equal rights” with animals.

    A Saudi panel of "scientists" concluded that women aren't just household items as it was previously thought in the Kingdom, but are mammals and therefore should have the same rights as camels and goats, the Journal de Mourréal portal 'reports'. 

    What a "historic" social discovery on the behalf of Saudi "scientists" — women are indeed a little better than a sofa or kitchen utensils and should be granted the same rights as other mammal species, except humans of course.

    The article featured such prominent speakers as womens' rights activist Jane Austin, a spokesperson for the Women's Liberation Action Network, the apparent identical twin of Amnesty International president Geneviève Garrigos and fictional political analyst Anthony Bochstein.

    As weird as it might seem, the verdict of the Saudi panel of "scientists" is "a great leap forward for women's rights in Saudi Arabia," Jane Austin said. Well, the world renowned author did always believe in happy endings, and after life in late 18th century England, she probably wouldn't be too surprised by lack of feminism anywhere.

    "This verdict shows the incredible progress the women's rights movement has made in the past 50 years," Austin said, but then added that women are still not considered "human."

    The decision reportedly didn't find much support among Saudi religious authorities and some of the Kingdom's political elites. The "scientific" discovery could apparently create socio-political turmoil in Saudi Arabia's legal state of affairs and its judiciary system, Bochstein said, as quoted by World News Daily Report, host to the English version of the story.
