you know, it says something about just how f*cked up this country has become under trump when you read a headline like this and figure there's at least a 50/50 chance that its coming from Alabama or Texas and not somewhere in the Middle East.

Well, the way you get pregnant outside a conventional marriage is the same way you get pregnant in a conventional marriage.  It's not like the biology changes, so I don't really see the problem.

 and also suggested a woman could marry briefly to have children before divorcing.

I know what she's actually in trouble over is the "sex before marriage" bit, but in a just world this would be the part of the comment that got you hit with a misdemeanor and a fine.  That's up there with advocating disciplining your children by locking them in a lightless basement for a week or two without food to teach them a lesson.

shiat happens and kids end up without proper financial and social support all the time already... setting up that kind of situation intentionally puts you about on par morally with war criminals.  Or at best a farking Captain Planet villain, the ones that pollute and destroy the environment just because Evil is some sort of end in itself for them.

No but it is a good reminder (and warning) for people in the U.S. what a truly fascist country can be like

And I am of the opinion that Trump is just another wealthy buffoon, and certainly unqualified to run a town let alone a country, but come on...

If people looked at Handmaiden's Tale honestly, they would see it as a reflection of life in the Middle East for many women.

But that doesn't make the flagellants happy, so we get nonsense like this.

I hate Trump with the fury of a thousand suns but this is far and away the stupidest thing I'll read all week. I know that ignorance is bliss but take a comparative politics class or five, expand your horizons, learn about the world outside your little bubble.

There's a 17 year old who had to fight through court to get an abortion that disagrees.

There are teen schoolgirls who get sent home because their shoulders are showing that disagree as well.

You realize that Europe has more restrictive abortion laws than America, right?  No, of course you don't.

Getting sent home because of a dress code thing (presumably, you don't actually cite a specific example) is maybe just a little different than imprisonment, right?

you are comparing what happened to this woman to access to abortion and dress code violations?  That seems incredibly short sighted

If woman start enjoying sex, they'll start to question why you only want to have crappy sex with them once every couple months and might start snooping around on your computer and find all your gay porn. Or you know, want you do something more besides climb on top for five minutes and do your business.

WWIII is coming. Everybody is reverting to their crazy nationalist states. Within the next twenty years we're going to be at it again. I'll probably be alive for the end of it. Hopefully I will be surprised.

This is in Egypt, mind you, where the military government took over from the ultra-crazy Mulsim Brotherhood. The military is the more secular of the two, for those of you keeping score.

Ah... religion, making everything shiattier since forever.
