Honour Killings and Slut Walks

First, here’s a piece from Robert Fisk about honour killings, published last year in The Independent (warning: this one’s not for the faint-hearted). Incidentally, Fisk describes honour killings as ‘one of the last great taboos’. I disagree with this, in the sense that even now, in the 21st century, and in many different societies, it’s widely known and acknowledged that women are treated like shit.

Robert Fisk: The crimewave that shames the world

At the opposite end of the scale we get on to Slut Walks. As a man I might be at risk of getting my head bitten off if I make any strong comments about this; but I should say that as a man I am biologically conditioned to shag as many women as possible, and it can only help evolution if a woman dresses in a way that I find sexually exciting…

By the way, the above video features Louise Bagshawe, who’s recently married and is now Louise Mensch and is the Conservative MP for Corby, in the north of England. I made a recent post about her, with regard to the phone hacking scandal (see here). Yes, I do have a thing about Louise (a well known Chic-Lit author). Problem is, we are at opposite ends of the political spectrum, and she’s quite religious whereas I’m very anti-religion, and we’d probably end-up strangling each other before we got half way down the aisle. Ha!
