Carriers of honor? What honor is there in the lives of women who are forced to endure the miserable circumstances of life under the Taliban?
Let's think about the honorable minds that think a woman even being in the presence of a man not of her family must have sexually degraded herself and her family's 'honor'.
All I can say is that I look forward to the time when the Taliban are either abolished or get their minds out of the gutter. The day when they stop persecuting women for their evidently immense corrupting power over men. Because as we know, men are so very, very weak.
Unless they are flinging stones.
