    That women are disproportionately executed for crimes like adultery?


    Stoning is used as a punishment for adultery, or zina. It is a method used to control the sexuality and bodies of both men and women, but women are more often the victims. The issue of stoning takes place within the much broader conversation about gender discrimination, women’s basic freedoms and culturally-justified violence against women. Simply put, women are more likely to be found guilty of adultery than men – because the hegemonic interpretations of Islamic law, personal status laws, poverty, and illiteracy among women all increase the likelihood of their conviction, either in a court of law or by the community.



    Link

    I'll see if I can dig some figures from Amnesty International or others...

    enough to make the comparison - in all three countries we're dealing with human beings who have similar feelings, emotions and similar reasons for marrying
    This is where I strongly disagree. 45% of females are married before the age of 18 in Somalia and 8% before 15 .

    You think these unions are out of love? Somalia is wrought with forced marriage, arranged marriage, kidnapping and child marriage

    These countries hardly compare to the US in any way as far as marriage goes.

    ok, so we have a problem with marriage rates already in this country, for reasons unconnected*** with societal control of adultery
    If adultery is criminalized to the point of execution, the marriage rate will plummet further.

    That is my point.

    i disagree (hence the ***) - i believe the drop in marriage rates is directly tied to the abandonment by society of controlling moral behavior, including adultery
    Oh, you small government types crack me up.

    there would certainly be fewer second marriages and third marriages and fourth marriages....
    Less marriage, overall. You can't agree with that? It's rather obvious, isn't it?

    Unless it hurts your position, I suppose.

    Why did the thread get closed, genius? Go ahead and see if you can figure that one out for us...apparently you ran out of ways to 'substantially contribute'.

    I can't ignore a thread being closed. I rarely read your posts but you're ruining it for others.

    How about you grow up a bit? Or, when your brain shuts off...just log out and stop trolling.

    You clearly don't know when to just shut up.

    No, Stripe was not the reason I closed the thread.

    Barbarian was trolling Clete, or at the very least, being extremely dishonest in his discussion with him.

    If you think one post from me mocking Barbarian was the reason, you need to wake up.

    Apparently you ran out of ways to substantially contribute.


    Try me.

    I can't ignore a thread being closed. I rarely read your posts but you're ruining it for others.
    By adding well-thought-through, on-topic, substantive posts that don't have Town's grammar and spelling errors?

    I don't think so, sonshine.
