Ready-set: India and China don't count because too many mothers use ultrasound to determine sex, then abort.


Yeah, but most of them are too poor to afford an ultrasound, so they either kill them or abandon them somewhere.

And I agree with ciberido...
Morocco has a ratio of boys to girls in primary and secondary schools of (approx) 87 to 9.

Weird thing is, the Koran states clearly that women must be educated.
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,

murdoch's_weeners: 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.

satorivt: 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.


islam is a thin patena over the stone age mind set of these people, fark them all

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. That this happens in real life just makes my head asplode.

The ninth circle of Hell is reserved for Treason if I remember Dante's Inferno correctlly, don't remember wich circle is for murdering children...

I have a solution to solve the problem. No healthcare for anyone over 18. Let the older generation die as soon as possible.

doglover: alienated: Murder of females who try to learn is not funny, at all. assholes.

But the murder of men is HILARIOUS, amirite?

Go be sexist somewhere else.


Oh, those poor groups of men beig systematically murdered, raped and disfigured by that evil sect of women, the Talibette. When will it stop? Oh wait - right, IT NEVER HAPPENS

Where the hell are the parents? If my kid was being threatened, I'd be walking them to school with a farking shotgun. I can't imagine that not even one parent cares so little they let the neighborhood kids walk to school alone.

/Seriously, if they're going to try and acid your daughters, go farking stop them.

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.
