As for that girl they shot, if they would do that to her they would do that to any woman, right?

I did acknowledge that this was an extreme example, that is why I am revisiting the definition of oppression.

Pregnancy is not oppression if it is planned and desired by the couple ...

unplanned pregnancy due to consensual sex is as much the woman's fault as the man's ... and it still does not count as oppression.

the (attempted) taking of the life was done to send a message to other women living under Taliban rule, which is that "you won't get freedoms such as higher education" ... so they are connected.

I guess we disagree ... most forms of domination have to be enforced by shows of power ...

How very thoughtful of you Dear Rose, that means such a lot to me.
We are fortunate that we only have torrential rain here..oh and, we
actually had a tornado or at least England did, that's a new occurrence,
so in comparison to New South Wales in Oz we are considerably lucky.
Always somebody worse off.
Did I tell you that the roses flourished after their major upheavel
and that the flowered until last week in fact, the Blue Rose loved
her new spot in the garden and has done better than ever. At the same
time as the Blue Rose floering the Skistolosis were rampant so lots
of colour this year in the garden. I can see bulbs poking through in
their containers, Daffs I think...I have early and late varieties.
Sending my love to you and to The Pack...:){{{HUGS}}}

I often wonder if those who practice the Islamic faith look to the West and see how decadent we have become.
For instance a TV programme over here features a typical Saturday night in an average town in the UK
and I am sorry to say it is not a pretty sight, drunks everywhere, many of whom have to be taken to A & E
as if our hospitals are not in sufficient crisis.
But you know what, I have yet to see a Muslim in such
a disgraceful situation.
But then again, they don't touch alcohol.
And their wives think twice before committng adultery.
And is it such a huge deal to drive a car? Since my husband has retired I all but fight for the wheel, but
usually gracefully give in and refer to him as my chauffeur.

more on this on a personal level later...
