Myth of Male Weakness?

A Saudi religious leader has a problem with co-ed education:
"Shaikh Sa'ad Bin Nasser Al Shethri, who is a member of the powerful government-sanctioned Supreme Committee of (Islamic) Scholars, was quoted on Wednesday in the Al Watan daily as demanding an end to co-ed classes at the newly opened King Abdullah Science and Technology University.

"'Mixing is a great sin and a great evil,' Al Shethri was quoted as saying. 'When men mix with women, their hearts burn and they will be diverted from their main goal, which is... education.'"

Is it worth analyzing this through the lens of feminist theory?

Given the standard of much which passes for feminist theory I'd rather listen to Al Shethri.
