Lashing Out

Awful fucking large of them:

Saudi King Abdullah has pardoned a rape victim who had been sentenced to 200 lashes and six months in prison in a case that sparked international attention, a Saudi newspaper has reported.

I've also seen a few reports on this case which strongly insinuated that the guy was raped as well, which tells you something about this society and its "justice" system, not that we didn't already know more than we want to.

It must be positively surreal for women to live in such an oppressive, brutal society of closet-cases, so afraid are they ofeven the whiff of an assertive female sexuality that they feel compelled to hide them and conceal them as much as possible. It's disgusting and pathetic in equal measures.
