I found an interesting article by the Egyptian-British reporter Mona Eltahawy from two years ago about sexual assault in Egypt.

Do you have a point?  Is there a reason this needs discussion now?

Democrats think the glass is half full.
Republicans think the glass is theirs.
Libertarians want to break the glass, because they think a conspiracy created it.

I think the point my be that with the rise of Islamism and the greater enforcement of segregated genders  you get hyper-sexualisation.


I remember several of the ladies on the Islam board discussing it.  These were ladies that were living or had returned from living in egypt or saudi or the gulf who experienced lots of outrageous attacks, all while wearing a burka.

I'm sure they did experience outrageous attacks.


Ever heard the tales told by tourist women returning from Italy?


 


I guess a Catholic fanny pinch is somehow more godly than a Muslim fanny pinch.

Ain't nothing like a British Anglican fanny pinch.

It was a total surprise to see a comparison of what daily goes on in Egypt and Arabia with the pinch or even a wolf whistle in the West!


Some folks have clearly no idea what goes on there.


Feeling so indignant that were it not for God's Law both a slew of foul language and vengeant violence would issue forth.


Those guilty of these and other assaults on the human person will suffer greatly.


Do they think God is not watching them?


They will pay for everything.


God is merciful. God's mercy is unlimited.


God is just and the best beloved of all things in God's sight is justice. Beware.
