Bülent Arınç, Turkish Prime Minister

Turkish women are posting laughing selfies on social media in defiance of one of the country’s top government officials who said that women scolded women for laughing out loud in public.

Vice Prime Minster Bülent Arinç, a conservative politician, complained on Monday that Turkey's society is in moral decline, and complained that women who don't control their laughs in public were part of the country's problem.

“A man should be moral but women should be moral as well, they should now what is decent and what is not decent. She should not laugh loudly in front of all the world and should preserve her decency at all times,” Arinc said, according to Hurriyet Daily News.

He suggested that by not laughing in public a woman "will protect her chasteness.”

Arinc's statement has stirred up a social media uproar, followed by Turkish women posting their laughing selfies on Twitter along with the hashtag #direnkahkaha, which means resist laughter.

And now he just goes even further with his thoughts...

Turkish Deputy PM Turns Ire From Laughing Women to Pole-Dancing

The Turkish deputy prime minister, who was ridiculed when he told women not to laugh in public, has walked into a second social media storm - this time for lashing out at women who "can't wait to climb poles when they see one." Bülent Arınç was attempting Wednesday to explain his comments, but appeared to make matters worse by suggesting women could not resist pole-dancing while on holiday with their extramarital lovers. His original remark about laughter, on Monday, prompted thousands of women to post defiant, smiling selfies.
