It's one of those things that makes me aggravated with modern feminism. Too many women obsess over a $0.25 difference in the average pay of men and women, but they rarely talk about this stuff.

it aint your country is it?


No, but it's still considered a women's issue and it sickens me that the feminazis bitch over a quarter before the fact that this goes on half way around the world. Besides, since when was the betterment of a woman's position limited to one country. I know it's not my country, but that doesn't stop it from being a concern.


I think everyone choose their battle.

If those woman wan to fight over 0.25$ they are allowed and are more than welcome to do so. Any battle or futile. What people dont understand, is that man and woman arent quite "equal" yet... There more harrassement against woman than man, more violence and domestic violent toward woman as well. Yes woman make over all less money than man still.

Some people prefer to act on a local scale, and others, like you, prefers to get their battle on a more internationnal point of view.

As much as i respect your opinion and such, i cant lets you put down the work of those people who fight, like you, everyday for a better world. They respect your battle, respect their.

Back on Topic:

Yes, alot of things been done in alot of country. Cruelty is everywhere, even on your door step. I dont think we can do everything and beside adding to the "omg is terrible" kind of comment... i dont think i have anything to add to this topic ... Sorry.

My fiance is from India and he always jokes about this subject, but sadly it does happen but this has been going on forever and it doesn't happen as much anymore because arranged marraiges are now up to the women, they used to have no choice but now they can say no, they may get disowned...but they can still choose...this usually only happens in those situations that it is arranged...and it usually only happens if they are still young. The whole arrainged marriage isn't really a bad thing because you can grow to love someone if you give it time, and the arrainged marraige originally was to test people to see if they were strong enough to form that bond but now its used more for money, the wife burning appears when the husband dies, the husband does not care so much for his wife and goes along with the family, or when the husband doesn't know and the family does it without consent.... Too bad for those girls....I heard about a very young arrainged marraige and the little boy was like 13 and died so the girl was 12 and they burned her....that was sad...

Since divorce is out of the question (Religious purposes), they choose to burn/ kill their new brides.


Please, tell me which religion allows burning people alive?

*nearly certain you're missing the point to the burning. the religion just plays a part in against divorce. burning wives is the new wave of the future..... and people still think they're fucking great..

I had a dream that women from around the world gathered for war & attacked many overtly religious countries with gas bombs that made them sleep. & when they woke up, all of them men (even the boys) had their "twins" removed so that they would not only be unable to produce more daughters to abuse, but wouled become doscile from the lack of testosterone.


*thinks perhaps you should read the sperm from bone marrow thread and come up with a different strategy... and testosterone can be taken by pills.

Yeah...-_- bride burning is a horrific thing. Sadly, it is prevalent in my culture (the Indian half), but as the world modernizes, the bide burnings are decreasing.


it's not prevalent but it does happen in the more rural areas of india among the less educated.

In India, a widower gets to marry again but a widow is ecpected to say a widow until she dies. If she gets married, she will be humiliated, and exiled eventually.
And the men marry young women for fertility. That's barbaric.
If the wife is not able to produce children, she is doomed.

I dont think it has to do with religion as much as it has to do with people being ignorant and not having an idea of how people should be treated. Also it is embedded into their way of thinking that women are not equal nor should they be treated equal to men. Its the patriarchal way of thinking. Men are superior and period. Thats ignorance. I would just like to give them the same treatment back....

I'm wondering how many of these "accidents" a man can have before fathers stop allowing their daughters to marry. Heck if money is so all fired important, then why don't the dad's kill their daughters themselved, "mercifully" and save themselves the money of a dowry at all. (that was a sarcastic comment, just in case anyone missed that)
