I Guess it Just Looks Wrong

I was wandering around the blogsophere, and I chanced upon this blog. If you take time to read it, you'll find that she makes an interesting point.

Which is further discussed in this blog.

So this adult woman dates outside of her faith, and is hiding, in fear for her life? And no one in the mainstream media has the...guts to discuss it?

Well, OK, it was discussed, here, and here, and and here. What's missing in the coverage is the righteous indignation seen when, say, the Duggars had a 19th child and decided to keep on having children. But, yes, they (the Duggars) are followers of a narrow-minded, patriarchal religion that keeps women under the control of the men in their families, bound to childrearing and not allowed education. Not a religion of peace.

Hey, check out the comments in that third article I linked. Find the one where the poster accuses Azad of making up this story to get publicity for her career. That's right. Blame it on the woman. And she won't even come to court, you know, because she's afraid for her father and brother. So the Brits can't really prosecute them.

Well, actually, they can, and aren't. And, actually, she's afraid of her father and brother.

I hope she gets to have some kind of normal life someday.
