I just can't imagine what extra abuse is going to be at issue under this - I mean, things were already bad enough for women there. The thing for me is that I'm not sure where/what that I can do about this other than make more people aware of it.

It's horrifying. The problem isn't just that it's legal - the fact that it's legal also normalises behaviour that isn't acceptable. For example one man may have raped his wife before and hoped to get away with it. Now a man that may not have engaged in that behaviour sees that it's legal and thinks 'legal = ok to do' and does it.

I simply don't have words.

And as if it weren't bad enough, the only reason Karzai's passed this is pre-election politics. Apparently, he values the voters who think marital rape and other ways of oppressing women is acceptable, and will put the lives and well-being of other voters on the line just to get those votes.

It's cynical, it's exploitative, and it sends his credibility completely down the toilet. He's not a guy who wants freedom for Afghanistan. He's just a politician, and worse. He's a politician who doesn't care about half his country's population.

I'm shocked at how little problems they had passing this. He really don't care how many people he has to hurt as long as he gets the votes he needs. And quite frankly, he doesn't deserve them.

Wow. And I thought there was nothing left they could do there that could amaze me.

It's not being spoken of.... but it's still going on. It's always going on in the middle east.
