While those of us in North America--and maybe even Europe--are finally beginning to acknowledge --and even condemn--the multi culti horror of (dis)honorable killings of Muslims who bring their cultural baggage/trash with them as they emigrate, the true extent of this murderous practice in their native lands is like a glacier--much of these ingrained attitudes and actions are unacknowledged and therefore unknown. But slowly some knowledge is emerging.
The BBC recently reported on a true mother in law/grandmother from hell--a woman who killed her daughter in law for producing a third granddaughter when
the mother gave birth to a third girl two months ago. The husband and mother-in-law strangled her for giving birth to a third daughter".
Senior officials told the BBC that the mother-in-law, known as Wali Hazrata, tied the feet of the 22-year old woman, who was known as Stori, while Stori's husband strangled her.
He is thought to be a fighter with an illegal armed militia which is is believed to have some political support.
The birth of a boy is usually a cause for celebration in Afghanistan but girls are generally seen as a burden.
Some women in Afghanistan are abused if they fail to give birth to boys. And this is just the latest in a series of high-profile crimes against women in the country.
Ps-s-st! For people everywhere, here is an introduction to basic biology which I learned (too) many years ago in my urban high school and is still valid, simply explained by Wikipedia: it is the male sperm containing both x and y chromosomes as opposed to the female's two x chromosomes--which determines the gender of children. So the male loving Afghani mother in law and daughter in law should have killed the son for his responsibility for producing a third daughter.
Each person normally has one pair of sex chromosomes in each cell. Females have two X chromosomes, whereas males have one X and one Y chromosome. Both males and females retain one of their mother's X chromosomes, and females retain their second X chromosome from their father. Since the father retains his X chromosome from his mother, a human female has one X chromosome from her paternal grandmother (father's side), and one X chromosome from her mother.
Yeah, (dis)honorable killing of males--that will reduce the incidence of these female murders. Or make for a pleasanter society.
