we all know how they're treated there, and lot of ppl say that the women don't 'hate' it cause its to protect the and it's a sign of respect. some even say that it makes them feel more womenly to be all cloaked up and its a badge of honor, or so is the otherside of the arguement.

but a staggering amount of women there are starting to set themselves on fire to die and not have to suffer under that countries primitive mentality.

you kind of have a point. If they want to die cause the conditions they're in are so primitive and horrible then why keep them alive? is it torture when a women decides that burning to death is better then being a women in afghan society under a rigid underdeveloped and oppressive laws attitudes and culture?

i mean im not for it but keeping them alive is just fanning the flames, no pun intended.

it also seems there's no escape. damn.
