Tio_Holtzmann: Dafuq. Just......start gassing. Or nuking. Or biebering.
Chinchillazilla: After hours of struggle, around 84% of kidnapped women end up agreeing to the nuptials. (The rest manage to get back home.) The kidnapee's parents often also pressure the girl, as once she has entered her kidnapper's home she is considered to be no longer pure, making it shameful for her to return home. In order to avoid disgrace, many women tend to remain with their kidnappers.I'm so tired of Homo sapiens. It's time for the squid people to rise.
meyerkev: ampoliros: [images.wikia.com image 326x253]Third world hellhole that treats women as property is third world hellhole that treats women as property.
StreetlightInTheGhetto: NutWrench: Russ1642: Sometime in the future they'll be complaining about the loss of their culture. Maybe some cultural traditions deserve to get wiped out.This. Some cultures aren't just "different" from other cultures. They're *worse*FTFAThis elderly Kyrgyz couple got married by kidnapping in September of 1954. Eshen, 83, and his wife Tursun, 82, said, "We don't like the modern way of bride-kidnapping. When we were young, it was consensual kidnapping. We knew each other well and exchanged love letters before kidnapping. Nowadays, young people violently kidnap women and this is not our tradition."
The King of Awesome: This just in, sixteen percent of women are on their period right now.
FrancoFile: In before Borat jokes.
AllUpInYa: gadian: AllUpInYa: gadian: Very, very rarely am I so glad that I had a son instead of a daughter. Of course he'll have to deal with the typical male stuff, but female gender politics will be optional. Well, semi-optional. If he ever gets it into his head to vote against women's health or education, he'll get a boot to his ass courtesy of mom./never mind what'll happen to that boy if I ever even hear rumors that he's an abuser of some kind.If my boy votes for womens' interests over his own, he will get a boot to the butt, courtesy of dad.I raise him to be the best he can be, not succumb to someone else's self-interest.So then we agree that the goal is equality and not oppression. And people say that men and women can't see eye to eye.So, we can agree that granting GroupB higher wages, will lead to inflation, which will reduce the buying power of GroupA?
The My Little Pony Killer: The quote by the elderly couple is priceless.
forcebender: Worse part is the bride having to do the dishes on her own wedding day - that's rough!
Target Builder: Ashyukun: I'm surprised there wasn't more about the boyfriends of the kidnappees going on shooting sprees at the 'groom's' house after these weddings...TFA says that once the girl has been kidnapped and is in the kidnappers house that her own parents often pressure her to go through with the marriage because she would otherwise be viewed as a slut (they don't use those exact words, but it's the gist). In that context I doubt there are many opportunities for young people to have a relationship status other than "Single", "Engaged Kidnapped" or "Married"
YoOjo: Are you all so bad at geography that you think Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan are the same place?
netcentric: Best left to Kyrgyzstan, whether women should dragged off the street to be married.I think John Kerry said that./we don't meddle
vudukungfu: Russ1642: Maybe some cultural traditions deserve to get wiped out.You ain't just whistlin' Dixie.
Russ1642: Maybe some cultural traditions deserve to get wiped out.
ikanreed: Yes, just like cave-men.

Wook: As Americans, we should manufacture moral outrage and then:1) Impose our righteous will on them2) Intervene militarily3) Beat our moral system into them until they are dead.
machoprogrammer: That is pretty farked up.
