Everybody's equal

blorky would argue that it's wrong to whip women for adultery when they can't produce 4 male witnesses to their rape. I happen to disagree. I think it's not so much wrong as insanely heinous and completely outside the boundaries of what a rational society would allow.

Imagine the criminal mastermind. He wants to rape a woman but he does not want to be punished for it. Knowing that unless there are four male witnesses to what has happened he won't be punished he waits until the woman is in a place where she can't be seen by 4 men and rapes her there. WHAT A BRILLIANT PLAN.

I wonder whether people who support that kind of shit actually don't understand how easy it is to get around such a retarded law, or if they just don't care, or worse, believe a woman shouldn't be in a place where four men can't see her. After all who knows what kind of womanly mischief she might get up to.

Seriously, if someone could explain how any person with a functional brain could believe that this is good criminal law, I'd like to hear that explanation. Because it literally sounds to me like something a retarded person would come up with. Like there's some chunk of brain missing there.
