    Default Life in a Middle eastern Muslim country...

    Hundreds of women report rapes by Gadhafi forces - Yahoo! News

    So much fear these women are afraid to file charges...

    Across the world, rape carries a stigma. But it can be a deadly one in conservative Muslim societies like Libya, where rape is considered a stain on the honor of the entire family. Victims can be abandoned by their families and, in some cases, left in the desert to die. Speaking to a journalist is out of the question.

    I am not surprised by this. You think women have come a long way in this world and then you hear things like this. But even in our own country, women still suffer at the hands of men. I am thinking about how many women still get beat up or murdered by their "lovers." I don't care what anyone says, I think there is still a stigma attached to this and it has been my own experience that women as well as men do the attaching of that stigma.

    Here in Missouri, a young Muslim girl was seeing a person of a different race and when her Muslim father found out about it, he then killed his daughter to avenge the family honor. When he appeared in court, his other two daughters sided with the father calming he did the right thing. Where and what is the sense of reasoning here ? If one of the other daughters end up on their father's hit list, will the surviving young woman wake up and see the light here after two senseless killings ? I wonder! If she does, then this lesson was tragic and shamefully costly.

    Truly awful. Sometimes I think my dogs are more advanced than humans.
