This is simply awful.

I read in the newspaper yesterday about an atrocious event that happened in Pakistan, last June. An 11 year old boy was seen walking in his village (without a chaperone)accompanied by a girl who was from a superior tribe than him, the Mastoi. The Mastoi tribe was outraged that this boy would dare be seen with someone who was from a superior caste and decided that a punishment was needed. They decided that his older 18 year old sister, Mukhtiar Mai, should be the one who had the be the victim of all of this, and decided that she would be gang raped by 4 men in front of the whole village. Mai pleaded to her assailants to let her go, saying that she had spent years teaching the Coran to the village's children but she couldn't escape. While she was gang raped the villagers were cheering. After this was over she had to go back to her home, naked while people were throwing insults at her. There has been 22 gang rapes this year in this Pakistani region of Punjab all in the name of "honor".

The Pakistani government was outraged and the president in charge of the "Women's development program" gave Mai a 1500$ cheque..(like this would make her all forget), and the Supreme Court are now planning on punishing those tribal "juries" that operate outside of the judiciary system....What took them so long?

why oh why must women suffer for "crimes" that aren't crimes and which they didn't committ? men can be such animals. Castration wouldn't be good enough punishment.

Why does this not surprise me?

And people wonder why I think we should proceed with the cloning of humans until this is our only means of reproduction, causing the male species to become obsolete and eventually die out.

They should be hung by their testicles. Or they should be f***ed in the ass in front of a cheering crowd.

This type of humiliation to women goes on in many more countries and is much more current than I thought...

As horrible as that event was, it was pretty tame compared to what happens to women in many countries in Africa, the middle East, India and Asia.

Women are routinely murdered and maimed at the hands of their husbands, fathers or borthers in many places to save face for family "honour".

And haven't you heard of female castration? Happens to young girls and women in some African countries as commonly as Jewish boys are circumcized.



Ok, my blood pressure is up, I'm off to lurk in PLEBA to calm down.....

Well, the thing about female genital mutilation is that it's a coming-of-age pride thing. Some females in Africa actually claim that the more people protest against it, the more they want to do it.

While I am not one to critize another culture's beliefs, I do have a concern with this. Mainly the concern is that the practice itself is unsafe a lot of times. The use of dirty instruments and unsanitary conditions, people have died from infections simply because they did not use a sterilized knife, or take care of the "wound."

:attn:This is not to say that I agree with a young woman being forced against her will to have this "procedure" done. :attn:

While as a woman I am disgusted by the idea of gential mutilation, it is not my place to put down someone else's belief system. I think that if someone wants to do this more power to them, however, the way in which it is sometimes done can be deadly.
