Tuesday, November 29, 2016

A Moroccan state television channel has broadcast a tutorial showing women how to conceal the evidence of domestic violence with make-up, sparking fury within the country.

The segment, in a daily programme on Channel 2M, showed a smiling makeup artist demonstrate how to mask injuries inflicted by a beating, on a woman whose face had been made up to appear swollen and bruised.

"We hope these beauty tips will help you carry on with your daily life", the host said at the end of the segment, which critics quickly pointed out coincided with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

I think it was back in the nineties that the Moroccan legislature had a detailed discussion on how big a stick you should use to beat your wife with.

At first I thought this was about how to get her in the mood after.

These are the "tolerant and moderate" ones, right?

#5 We should all get together and read the Necronomicon. No hate, no blame, no guilt at all in that book....

This the kind of thing the left used to abhor before they started subscribing to ultra-stupid identity politics. Now they can't criticize if the batterer is part of a preferred class.

Domestic Abuse is normally hidden from society.

Except in Muslim nations.

Where it's glorified.

I like the idea of having two wives. A normal one, and a Moroccan one I can take my anger out on.
My dog also loves the idea.

In case you haven't noticed, "Lefties" are quick to point out abuse by almost anyone. "Lefties'" mantra, however, is that not all people of a certain group act exactly like each other. Beating women is terrible no matter who you are, so drop the strawman Sully. It's crap like that which reinforces my issue with a lot of what you post, even though I used to agree with you on things a lot more. I think you are heading down the Nulli highway.
