PZ Myers is so hot right now! I check his blog, like, every 13 minutes. And lo, he rewards me, not with a nice picture of some wacky octopus, but with another godawful story about what he calls “daughter-slaughtering monsters” in Saudi Arabia. Yeesh.
Seems that Dude became so enraged when he discovered his daughter chatting online with some guy from Facebook that he fucking beat her up and shot her . So what is one Saudi cleric’s response? Duh, Facebook is obviously a “door to lust” that threatens the purity of Saudi women; it must be blocked to protect the country from further “social strife.”
“Social strife” caused by a website! That’s a hot one. What about the social strife caused by deranged woman-hating patriarchs? What about blocking that shit, chump? What about liberating women from the constant threat of murderous gender-based assaults perpetrated by their own family members? What about tossing them the keys to the Mercedes once in a while?
This shit just makes me want to pull my own head off.
