The nine year old rule was implemented by Khomeini on the precedent of Mohammed's consummation of Aisha, though I thought it was only intended as the age of consent. That is one seriously dysfunctional society. As for the general disdain for women, the source is the horse's mouth itself.

"Evil omen is in the women, house and the horse." - Mohammed

"I was standing at the edge of the fire (hell) and the majority of the people going in were women." - Mohammed


Alcuin; "I was standing at the edge of the fire (hell) and the majority of the people going in were women." - Mohammed

Pushed by men(?)...

The last line would suggest a major legal (not to mention moral) problem for Doctors if they try and comply with the religious ruling.
I'd suggest gelding the rapist as well, might actually reduce the instances of rape.


My above comment got me thinking; here's an excerpt from an article on "gelding":

" Gelding is often used as a means to modify a horse's behavior. Vocalization, fractious behavior and sexual interest in mares are frequently the undesirable characteristics noted in the yearling and two-year-old stallion. Although sexual interest is desirable in a stud, sexual aggressiveness is inappropriate and dangerous in a performance animal. The urge to copulate is just one part of the breeding ritual; related breeding behaviors include forms of whinnying, squealing, pushing, rearing, striking, and biting - all socially acceptable behaviors among horses but not between people and horses. A small percentage of young male horses exhibit sexual frustration or self-mutilation tendencies. If such a horse is not intended for breeding, it is best to geld him before habits get established. "

I'm just sayin'...


How can a woman found guilty of adultery be a virgin!?!

That's a very good question, Snafu.


It was for an affair with a 51 year old man. The whole thing is a disgrace and an abomination and about as far from justice as can be imagined.
