Over 800 killed over a 5-year period. That is shameful. It is only happening because people can get away with it. I hate to say it, but that's the only reason that this type of barbarity is not happening here in the U.S.- because people wouldn't be able to get away with it. The community condemnation of those who carry out attacks against those who are "different" from the norm tends to keep attacks at bay. I have no doubt, though, that there are plenty who would have no problem with persecution of "witches" in this country. Or gays, or members of any minority group - anyone perceived as "different" and therefore a threat to the status quo.

Although, I agree with you...why are Women still regarded as the "minority"? Thing is Da Broad. Women are half the human race and we give birth to it. Its a global thing. These people blame women only because women want to have a better life for themselves and their loved ones. When I read articles about the minority, for some reason women are included in it!!! Until we get rid of gender separatation globally, I doubt the rest of the "minority" will receive the respect they deserve. BB my friend xx

As long as women are the weaker sex, they will always be 2ond. Deal with it.

I have dealt with human beings like you..........Many times. No academic argument or those of a lesser IQ, can compensate for the horror that internet "armchair judges", do like you. So..........unless you want to speak the truth and want to talk to us, by all means do it.
