Humanity sinks down again

Quote
A woman in north-eastern Afghanistan has been arrested for allegedly strangling her daughter-in-law for giving birth to a third daughter.

The murdered woman's husband, a member of a local militia, is also suspected of involvement but he has since fled.

The murder took place two days ago in Kunduz province. The baby girl, who is now two months old, was not hurt.

The birth of a boy is usually a cause for celebration in Afghanistan but girls are generally seen as a burden.

Some women in Afghanistan are abused if they fail to give birth to boys. And this is just the latest in a series of high-profile crimes against women in the country.


WTF?

Quote
Late last year a horrifying video emerged of the injuries suffered by a 15-year-old child bride who was locked up and tortured by her husband.



Quote
This murder took place in the village of Mahfalay, in the district of Khanabad in Kunduz.

Khanabad's police chief, Sufi Habib, told the BBC that "the mother gave birth to a third girl two months ago. The husband and mother-in-law strangled her for giving birth to a third daughter".

Senior officials told the BBC that the mother-in-law, known as Wali Hazrata, tied the feet of the 22-year old woman, who was known as Stori, while Stori's husband strangled her.

He is thought to be a fighter with an illegal armed militia which is is believed to have some political support. Local villagers say that Stori often urged her husband to lay down his arms.

"She lived in a hell not a house. But then she also asked her husband to stay home and avoid going out with these thugs," one neighbour who wished to remain anonymous told the BBC.

While militia groups have some political support, they have often been accused of violence against women, robberies and extortion.


Is this place actually worth fighting for?

So this doesn't make sense in any light.  If they believe that everything is God's will, then they're killing a woman for being God's little pawn.  If you discount the religious aspect, then you have to consider that,

A)  The woman has no control of the gender of the baby she's going to give birth to.

B)  If we want to assign blame, we should do it to the man.  Why?  His sperm hold the chromosomes that determine gender!

tl;dr:  This place is a retarded fuckhole.

you expect random people in third world countries to know how gender is determined?

It's a tired old trope. It's always the woman's fault for the birth going wrong or not getting the right gender - regardless of how genetics works.
That may be the single gayest thing I have ever read on this board. Or the old one. ;)

Ey, I take offense to the whole "humanity sinks" title.  Afghanistan is not indicative of humanity today.  At this rate, I think most of them are stuck in the Iron Age permanently...they just have some random bits of semi-modern tech.  If you consider AK-47s and old Soviet RPGs modern, that is...

The thing is, Afghanistan used to be a pretty good place. Then the Soviets invaded, then you had the mujahadeen, then the Taliban and the Northern Alliance and now the Coalition is fucking things up.

Whole place needs to be bulldozed and then replanted.  Disgusts me that we've invested so much in there and the returns we're getting would make a Crusader blush.

You know, in most other species, it is the male children that get minimized. Less competition for the adult daddies.

I would say something, but it comes off as very AROOO in my headspace, so Primus only knows what it would look like in type.
Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.
