I find your headline very bad and I hope that you feel very bad. And I also hope that the greener does as well.
Murder of females who try to learn is not funny, at all. assholes.
You are not helping.

I guess I'm confused, but where is any humor being displayed in the headline? I'm certainly not seeing it. In fact Afghani girls have been the victims of acid attacks, had their schools burned down or bombed, have had food & water poisoned, etc., all in a concerted effort to deny them basic education.

Sadly, subby is making a valid point. The Taliban is way too prominent in Afghanistan and yeah, they probably will stone females for daring to get an education.

i almost got stoned to death, but i just went for a walk.

I may send a few bucks to this cause. I feel the bombs would be much more useful if they were forced up the asses of the men that try to control and abuse the females, but that's just me.
Also, subby wasn't making a joke. This is a sad reality.

I suspect English is not your first language. Otherwise, you would understand there is no humor in that headline.

If you were a parent there, what would you do? Would you risk sending your daughter to school, knowing that it's her best chance at a better life, but also knowing it could seriously risk her life?

Or raped. But don't worry, if it's legitimate, the girls won't get pregnant. If they do, it means they are actually sluts who wanted it and enjoyed it - Then you stone them.

Afghan's women's organizations are really scared that as the US pulls out and international pressure falls off, the situation for women will get even worse. Most of these gains are a result of that pressure.

Afghanistan is one of the worst places on earth to be born female.

Who the fark is murdering males because they want to get educated?

I'm not in favor of giving special treatment to anyone, but this is about not murdering people because they are female and want an education.

WTF? Killing women who go to school is a special treatment I would think most of us who speak English would be against.

Only in certain parts. Even when they nominally ruled the country they never controlled more than perhaps a quarter of it.


Citation? I could buy 2/3rds but a quarter? I think they were a lot more successful than that.

The article makes a great point. If there is enough international support for the next 10 years or so, the new generation of Afghans, men and women will be the first to truely be educated since the 1970's and hopefully that will lead to a better situation for them.

Joe Blowme: behold... the wonders of islam


I hate having to defend Islam on fark. There are plenty of muslim countries where education is encouraged for both men and women. If you look at Iran, there are more women in college than men.

I'm also afghan and in my family we encourage guys and girls to go to school, even when we lived in Afghanistan. It's more of a cultural thing and the fact that the educated and elite of Afghanistan left a long time ago, and left people that have seen nothing but war and destructoin and the influence of extremists that took over since the Russian invasion.

Why do they deserve them more than you? Winning the geography lottery at birth doesn't make you a less worthy person. It means that your ancestors probably struggled hard to achieve it (which you can be proud of), or that they had the good sense to get out of one of those shiatholes (which you can be thankful for).

/A lot of people over there are just backwards assholes.
//Definitely agree that those struggling to improve themselves need a little luck and a lot of help.

"While she was filming at one school, there was an attack at another school nearby that killed 100 children."

In-farking-conceivable that anyone would actually want to blow up scores of innocent little schoolgirls.
That's practically a caricature of evil -- the kind of thing you come up with if you're trying to think of the most absurdly evil thing that someone could possibly do to get an instant pass to the 9th level of Hell where they'll have hot pokers rammed up their arseholes for eternity. That this happens in real life just makes my head asplode.

This is like you, but for religion:
imgs.xkcd.com

I saw no such atrocities while I was in Morocco, despite the country being largely Islamic.
Indeed, I saw both girls and boys at school, and getting out of school, and being picked up by their parents or walking home with their backpacks, looking for all the world like normal schoolkids. Because, you know... they were.
