‘Mushrooms after rain’ May 23, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Malaysia, Note2Self, Politics, Women.
When it rains, it pours.
Then all these noxious mushroom start popping up and the only way out is to use industrial-strength pesticides.
On Monday at the Penang state assembly, Shabudin Yahaya (UMNO – Permatang Berangan) and fellow assemblyman Datuk Jasmin Mohamed (UMNO – Sungai Dua ) blamed women’s provocative dressing for sexual crimes.
Shabudin, who is also state Islamic Religious Council president said, “The women’s dressing menggoda (lures) and mencabar (challenges) men,” adding that ‘men were sure to look when sexily attired women pass in front of them’.
Wait. It gets better.
Datuk Jasmin Mohamed said women’s pursuit of position prompted many of them to put aside their responsibility to the family and was one of the reasons for the violent sexual acts.
I’m trying very hard to understand the mental acrobatics of these advocates of ‘Islam Hadhari’.
Women -> Work -> Pay Bills -> Men Merajuk -> License to Rape, Molest, Harass, Snuff, Torture, etc. (QED?)
And should one be worried about the women in their lives; are they subject to this logic?
I have a konspirasi theory (and that’s with a ‘k’).
Because their buddies, Jasin and Kinabatangan got whip-lashed by the women of this country, the BN boys decided to bring out the calvary.
Bring it on, boys. Women only constitute 51% of voters. I’m sure some will cast their votes for you and your filthy minds. Me, I’d much prefer to stomp on those mushroom heads.
