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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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).

"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.

Wow, did you just use Iran do defend islam? Just because they let women go to school? Champions of womens rights they are not. Saudis let women go to school too, then they lock them in to burn in a fire because they were not properly dressed to go outside... Islam is wonderful.

It doesn't matter what you think Islam means, and how that relates to girls getting educated. It doesn't matter what the Moroccans think, either. What matters what the Afghans with the bombs, AK-47s, RPGs, jars of acid, and poison thinks Islam means, and how it relates to girls getting educated.

=============

Almost all of the majority Muslim countries were making progress and attempting to join the modern era until the world powers started meddling because of the oil reserves the Mideast was cursed with. No one in the West wanted the oil wealth applied is such a way that these societies would grow into economic competitors......so much for the "invisible hand of the market" theories of dumbfark Randoids. The oil wealth needed to be controlled and diverted so as to direct as much of it back to multinational corporations with little benefit going to the majority of people in producing nations. One of the strategies employed was encouraging fundamentalist Islam. Yes, I know that Afghanistan has no oil, but it sits at a crossroads of East and West. The pictures you posted were of a socialist Afghanistan that was aligned with the Soviet Union. Look at the pictures of the Afghan soldiers from the 1960s, almost all of their equipment was provided by the Soviet Union, the WWII German bucket helmets were captured war material that the Soviets distributed to their allies. Western intelligence agencies did everything they could to encourage medieval Islam in Afghanistan because they saw it as poison for communism. Well it worked. It worked so good, that Afghanistan has been restored....restored to the year 1510...a place where blowing up little girls is considered no big deal. YAY CIA!  USA! USA! USA!

That's ridiculous. If there are a billion Muslims in the world going about their business peacefully, you're saying that what they think doesn't matter?? That they're all defined by the worst 1% of them? That's like saying "it doesn't matter what most Christians believe about (black people/gays/abortion/contraception), it only matters what the neo-Nazi, gay-beating, doctor-murdering abortion clinic bombers think". Do you suppose it's fair to judge everyone under the umbrella of Christianity by the acts that those people commit?

They wouldn't stone them. That is for other crimes like a guy looking at you and you not being interested and then he says you did some sexy things.

Girls going to school involves acid throwing.

CSB time-

I worked at the US Embassy in Kabul from 2005 to 2007 and one day the driver was taking me to the airport in the morning for a flight to India or Dubai (to Thailand) and it was the time of day when the girls were going to school. I had seen the boys going to school The boys got to wear whatever they wanted and that was nothing special. The girls all had on uniforms like these in the - Link It was an awesome sight. I couldn't get my camera out in time to take a picture but it is something that has always stuck in my mind when I hear mentions of schoolgirls in Afghanistan.

My Afghani staff believed that education was the key to the whole struggle in their country.

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.


It doesn't matter what you think Islam means, and how that relates to girls getting educated. It doesn't matter what the Moroccans think, either. What matters what the Afghans with the bombs, AK-47s, RPGs, jars of acid, and poison thinks Islam means, and how it relates to girls getting educated.


Don't forget the rocks. They have lots of rocks.

That's ridiculous. If there are a billion Muslims in the world going about their business peacefully, you're saying that what they think doesn't matter?? That they're all defined by the worst 1% of them? That's like saying "it doesn't matter what most Christians believe about (black people/gays/abortion/contraception), it only matters what the neo-Nazi, gay-beating, doctor-murdering abortion clinic bombers think". Do you suppose it's fair to judge everyone under the umbrella of Christianity by the acts that those people commit?


ninotchka: Marry into a Muslim family. It will change your world. There is a lot you don't see.

I'm sure that's true in some cases.
OTOH, one of my good friends married into a Muslim family. She's a very left-wing progressive type, and she gets along with her in-laws very well. So... maybe not.



Learn to read. In no way did I use a broad brush to tar all Muslims. What I said was that in judging the actions of the Afghans who are opposed to education females, and that justify their violence with the Qur'an and the hadith, your interpretation of Islam is meaningless. To them, their interpretation is correct, and the only one that matters.

hrm...

55 years ago, here, some people needed armed guards to safely go get an education, because of the color of their skin.
Present day, some people there need armed guards to safely go get an education (but are braving it without), because they lack testicles.

Sole differences: 55 years, location, and particular brand of violent bigotry.

Much more than close, easy to call this one for EyeballKid. Or, I don't know... if you really think violent race-based oppression is OK and violent sex-based oppression is bad, you could elaborate, doughnuts.

Back when Brown v. Board of Education was passed, nobody was throwing acid in faces, attacking Black students with grenades and bombs, poisoning the water supplies of schools, hosing the schools down with machine-gun fire, or shooting teachers.

Also, the situation with Brown would be more akin to Afghan schools becoming co-educational, rather than about the existence of schools for girls.

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.

I had a few middle eastern friends here in the states for awhile. I loved their food and they seemed to be decent people at first. Then one night we were hanging out and one of the guys was getting pretty verbally abusive to his girlfriend and throwing a temper tantrum. I asked the others why he was treating his girlfriend like shiat for no reason. He overheard me and wanted to fight, I punched him in the face and broke his glasses. You punched me in my farking face?! He was all huffy puffy and stormed away because he couldn't see shiat. The other guys said that he had it coming for a long time and wanted to do it themselves but they were taught never to interfere with someone else's relationship.

/aside from that guy the rest of the group was a lot of fun to be around.

Well either the internet has ruined me or I'm a bigger asshole than I ever thought I could be. Even with the womans explanation, reddit and farks reaction has completely surprised me. I'm a very liberal person really and don't care if a persons religion worships a chihuahua or Fonzie even though I'm not religious at all. I have to call bullshiat with this one though. There is no woman beautiful enough inside that they should have a damn goatee and sideburns, much less bring tears to peoples eyes with her explanation.. Does she have the right to do this? Absolutely. Should people point and laugh at the religious nut? Yeah they should. Everyone knows that women do grow some facial hair and it's not big deal, except keep that shiat cut. The most beautiful of all creatures on this earth is a woman and a woman isn't beautiful with a beard. If she wants to honor the wishes of her maker thats the part she needs to focus on.

Morocco has a ratio of boys to girls in primary and secondary schools of (approx) 87 to 9.

So its all just a control thing, with no real religion behind it.

???? have you even read it?
"Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them." Quran 4:34,

Gawdzila: "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.

Their mothers aren't allowed out of the house without a male relative escorting them, and the fathers don't care. They're only daughters, after all.

Meanwhile, here in America you find kids and their worthless "parents" who couldn't care less about education.

Worst job I've had was teaching at a Title I school where we had 5th graders who were functionally illiterate. And it generally WASN'T the ESL kids; they actually wanted to learn.
