Muslim Honor Killing in Kingston


Recommended Posts

Again...I've never heard anyone claim "women deserve rape". If asked, since we're reading minds today, the average Joe Sixpack is likely to curb stomp you for the mere suggestion.

The issue is not what you have heard or not heard. It is not the reaction that most people would have if someone said it to their face. It is not even your idiotic assumption that I claim to read mind. It is about the fact that there are people in Western societies who holds such opinion. 26% of Britons think that's a woman is at least partly responsible if she wears certain clothings, 20% if she has multiple sexual partners, according to poll conducted in 2005.

Reminds me of that South Park episode where Cartman is walking down the school hall with Kyle, Stan and Kenny...

Cartman: "Kyle why are you so afraid of the truth?"

Kyle: "Cause anyone who thinks 9/11 was a conspiracy is a retard."

Cartman: "Well did you know that over 1/4 of people in America think that 9/11 was a conspiracy? Are you saying that 1/4 of Americans are retards?"

Kyle: "Yes, I'm saying 1/4 of Americans are retards"

Stan: "Yeah... at least 1/4"

Kyle: "Let's take a test sample, theirs 4 of us; you're a retard (points to Cartman) that's 1/4

He's right.

I remember a time when it was said that women were raped twice... once by their rapist and again by the legal system. What she was wearing, where she was and her sexual history could and was used against her.

There was a time when people in our Western Civilization burned witches at the stake.

Noboby had ever told him women deserved it, so nobody thinks that.

And that's relevant how?

If there was a time women who were raped had to face cross-examination...there was also a time when we burned witches. Things change for the better in our Western Civilization it would seem...given time.

Our Western Civilization... like here in North America? Because that's not true. If you mean Europe, that was several centuries ago. I was referring to laws from within our own lifetimes.

Ohh...so suddenly you want to qualify my responses....and you've never heard of Salem either, apparently. Please leave a list of rules you'd like my to post by...I'll look them over and give them the attention they deserve.

How many witches were burned in Salem?

I'll save you the google time.

None.

Good thing. Does not change the fact that there are still archaic notions about women circulating in our societies.

What's with the if?

You were given an example from within the last 30 or so years, and you counter with something from several centuries ago?

As mentioned...so you'd like me to qualify my answers to suit you? Make a list of rules you'd like me to post by and I'll give them the attention they deserve.

Your example was irrelevant. You know this.

Getting all huffy doesn't change a thing. ;)

It's a fine example. Unless you'd like to say we either still cross examin rape victims or HANG witches. Both are part of the past.

Pretending that you're holier-than-thou doesn't change a thing, either.

Capitalism has made punishments of women simply more subtle.
