What is wrong with them?




What is wrong with them?

And now that I'm angry, I might as well say that I have often wondered why the RSS doesn't get married to the Taliban.? When it comes to gender, they're on the same wavelength. May they be marooned on a desert island and may they live happily ever after.

Scratch the surface, and see how many politicians across party lines believe in exactly the same sort of nonsense. Yes, including many venerable comrades, which is why the gender balance of the Politburo is so lopsided.

Bear in mind that not for a moment do I defend the RSS loony bunch, but to me they are rather marginal, and there are many mainstream poltiicians who essentially have the same values.

"In Connecticut, it shouldn't take more than a short ride to get to another hospital"

Does Lieberman realise that we are not living in biblical times?

And why are these hospitals allowed to function?

Well, in these advancing times, it just gets worse and more open about the abuse on women. How can a radio station relay something so ugly and this Leiberman uses his male organ to think or what?? He expects a rape victim to run from door to door to get an emergency contraceptive pill?? Cant somebody sue him on the grounds of public interest? God!

I agree with you on this one.

thalassa: that's not the point. i don't care whether the politician who makessuch statements is leftist or rightist. the point is, how dare he?
wannabe punkster: he does. but he derives his views from his vote-bank, i suspect. the people. that's the scary part.
anomaly: exactly... how could they? i'm not american but i'm surprised some US citizens aren't filing a PIL against this.
altough: inshallah. one can only wait and hope

Thanks for the links.

I wonder what the state of protest about the ruling in Kenya is.
Marital rape may be an offence in India, but most police officers (men, of course) have been known to take down complaits calling it a domestic issue

Its insane.

And as for the RSS, you put it quite aptly. They should simply get married to the Taliban. Made for the each other, those two.

You compare RSS to Taliban. Guess you have never been to Afghanistan.

Ferreter said...

Sorry, pal. They're more similar than that. Both organizations excel at interpreting scriptures in a way that suits their prejudices.

In pre-Taliban Afghanistan, women made up 40% of doctors in Kabul, 50% of civilians in the government workforce and 50% of students at Kabul University. The Taliban changed all that by restricting women to their homes, and decreeing that they could step out only with a related male escort. How different is that from what RSS Sarsanghchalak Sudarshan wants?
The only difference between the RSS and the Taliban, is that only one set of fanatics was able to actualize their medieval vision

BTW, Sudarshan's the same gent who wants Hindu women to have not less than three kids each. He actually gave a 'Veer Mata' award to a poor soul whom the Hindu Munnani trotted up -- her achievement giving birth to 17 children.
