News Flash – Even in “modern” western society, women STILL get bitch-slapped for even doing less. Sometimes for doing NOTHING wrong! And despite the fact that unregulated violence is illegal, we still see many people physically abusing their spouses – repeatedly – while no one gets arrested.
At least the Koran (and even the Bible, if you look closely) clearly outlines where and WHY you might drop-kick your spouse (whether male or female). At least there’s some sort of structure and system to it.
We live in a [supposedly] liberated country (USA), with a very strong Women’s Equality movement, and yet spousal violence is still happening, every day, on the street-level. WHY is that? Why are we not talking about the women who STAY in these abusive situations? Or those who INSTIGATE these situations? And especially, the women who, by their actions or inaction, encourage and REWARD such bad behavior… why are we not talking about that? Remember Chris Brown and his girlfriend Rihanna? Remember THAT story? Did she not take him back?
This is total BS.
Look, my point is… We need to focus on OUR own internal problems, frustrating cultural irregularities, maddening enforcement inconsistencies, and legal loopholes before worrying about – or trying “fix” – other countries’.
Anything less is simple hypocrisy.
