(MSN)   They still flog you in Indonesia for things like adultery. This woman got a lot compared to her male counterpart. And it will continue until the morale improves   (msn.com) divider line

Interesting costume for the giant thumb carrying out the punishment. I suspect it's a woman.

But, yeah, Aceh is strict. My uncle and I almost caused an incident when we went scuba diving on Friday, Hari Jumat or such... their sabbath

Here is the worst thing. He committed adultery, she did not.  He was married, he was the one who broke the commitment to his wife.  Even if she knew that he was married, she made no such commitment.

100 to 15 ratio is similar when translated to US punishment. (Whereby actual flogging = media flogging)

Monica Lewinsky (easily flogged 100 media units)  Bill Clinton (his people handled most of the flogging and he received barely 15 units)

Except for the nature of the charges and the penalty, the same thing happens here. Cops catch two guys for committing a crime together, one pleads guilty and gets the book thrown at him, other fights it and walks.

Subby, it is not Indonesia as a whole which is following Sharia law. Don't lump the whole nation with them. You know what's worse than gender inequality in the number of hits? Kicking in doors and dragging same sex couples into the streets to get caned.

If I had to guess, I'd say that there's a recognition that it's harder for men to keep their impulses in check, hence the disparity in punishment.

While that's some bs ass bs of course. I do believe inflicting physical pain as law breaking deterrents/punishments  are far more justice than hat if you are wealthy you can just pay the service fee to break all the laws want and endanger the public trust...as long as you are wealthy enough to afford it.

And that we do not all really meet the same punishments is some real BS, it just creates the caste system of those who ARE ALLOWED to ignore the laws as long as they can afford the LAW BREAKER SERVICE FEE.

It's not a fooking punishment, if it don't impact you life. S fines are punishments on poors and service fees on the rich , as the cost of a two tier system of society.
Welcome to the equality is a lie, becasue the punishments are not fooking equal in the first place.

And so it is, these people, flogging this woman more than that man. Yeah we're the same as them, no different at all, no better in any way. Both wealth and gender are equally bullshiat ways to segregate people into classes.

That we do it at all, is the only measure, not in what way, because the specific form of discrimination is just arbitrary, you are still a worthless sack of shiat no matter what criteria you use to create inequality among the people.

Replace "Muslims" with Christians, and "Indonesia" with Texas and you've still got the same story.

My argument is that there should be NO punishment for being the other women / man.  Either by stigma (here in the States) or by literal flogging.

The stigma / punishment should only be on the party actually breaking their marriage vows.

And men can keep their impulses in check just fine, it is just more societally acceptable for a man to be impulsive in this manner.  Heck, if a man's impulses are to bang another dude or dress up in a fursuit I don't see the same societal deference.

The judges couldn't find the accused man guilty of adultery because he denied the charges, the prosecutor said...

Oh, well okay then. So long as he denied it. If he had vigorously denied it, he might have gotten off Scott free.

Not only is this absolutely ridiculous, but the blatant favoritism, not merely because the actual adulterer was a man, but because he was an important, well connected, and rich man.

Sharia law is unnecessarily cruel, but in practice the blatant hypocrisy based on both sex and income make the legal shenanigans in the US look tame by comparison.

Sharia Law is what's wrong with them.  Or, put another way, fanatical adherence to religion (which is never a good thing regardless of the religion)

He received less be cause he denied it and was charged with a lesser crime.  Telling the truth is never good.   Further down the article it has another example where both parties were beaten the same amount

Lets say that I am not married (don't tell my wife).  Why am I punished for sleeping with woman a, who is married, but not with woman b who is not?  I didn't make any vows to woman a's husband.  Why is it my duty to enforce their marriage?

Now I do think it would be different if I slept with a wife of a friend, but that would just be because I was violating my duties of friendship, not the duties placed on their marriage.

This is my argument every time some cheats and their significant other gets mad and beats on the 3rd person.   That 3rd person made no commitment and most often had no idea there was a relationship... unless your all friends then it should have been a 3some anyway

That happens a lot.  My guess is that the significant other still has feelings for their spouse and so they concoct a story in their mind where the third party somehow seduced their innocent spouse and tricked them.  This way it is all the third party's fault and they can go on with their relationship with their spouse.

Of course this is hogwash.

On Thursday, an Indonesian woman who confessed to engaging in extramarital sex was publicly flogged 100 times in the Aceh province. AFP reported that her male partner, who denied the adultery allegations, was whipped only 15 times.

Moral of the story: admit nothing.

I was in the Derawan islands later, that's my idea of paradise. I'll have to look up the others you mentioned, but it'll be a long time til I get back in that part of the world.

It was actually an event sponsored by the Indonesian minister of tourism trying to get money into Aceh about 10 yrs after the Boxing Day tsunami. Gave us free visas and cruising permit. Some cultural shows, dinner at the local mayor's house.
There was a sign on the beach, in Indonesian, that I saw later and translated as "No swimming, snorkeling, or fishing on the sabbath (Thurs eve to early Fri afternoon IIRC)" And "Definitely not on Dec. 26!"
It was admittedly a case of ignorant Americans. We would have honored their local rules but hadn't done the research or been told.

Got it. I've spent a lot of time all over Indonesia and even my friends and colleagues there are like, "I've never been to Aceh; those farkers are *crazy*."

/Anyway, if you ever do get a chance to go back, I recommend Raja Ampat. And while everyone tends to go to Waigeo, if you have the chance a side trip to the rock islands off Misool is worth it. Just be sure to bring sturdy footwear or the karst formations will tear the shiat out of them.
