I don’t often stray outside of politics, but once in awhile, I see something I feel the need to share.

Just so all of you can be as disturbed as I am. And besides…. there’s some politics in here. Politics you’ll probably even recognize.

That’s about it. Words fail me this time.

 

Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives for up to six hours after their death, local media reports.

The controversial new law is claimed to be part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.

It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women’s rights of getting education and employment.

Naturally, religious fundamentalists have a hand in it. And just like our own fundies, they don’t see women as anything but property, so I shouldn’t be surprised.

And I’m probably not surprised. But I am so weirded out I just don’t realize it yet.

Keep voting “values,” dumbasses.
