    'tis a puzzlement....

    as of late.. I've gone over news articles about the Taliban, Boko Haram, and other Islamic extreme groups...
    specifically, that girl who was shot by the Taliban for trying to go to school..... it makes me wonder one thing.... what is it about educated women that these extremist groups are so afraid of????
    (after all.... history has shown that ppl tend to suppress what they cant (or wont) understand.... look what the catholic church did to the likes of Galileo)

    Maybe they fear that their educated women will do exactly like women of the west and use that knowledge to infiltrate government to pass laws/push for laws that favor them only and throw the family and society itself as well as the culture out of whack leading to irreparable collapse and mayhem?

    Of course, you rarely hear about all the boys that were shot by Boko Haram for attending school.

    Funny enough boko haram actually means education is a sin. The thing is they have devastated the lives of people in several states and even occupied territory for a while. Thing you never hear on the news is how the recruit and use 12 year old boys to excute their deeds or how their women have been participating in the suicide bombings by strapping bombs to their bodies and going into crowds. I guess is easier to gain sympathy by saying bring back our girls who were about 200+ than to say resurrect the thousands killed thus far.
    And I think they are well aware of how educated women behave simply by viewing parts of the country where christianity is predominant.

    I think that's why I find it hard to criticise other men who still cannot get around to the idea on how unfair even the foundations of male/female interactions are, because we are so inundated with the notion of the lower value of the male life that we take it for granted that there nothing inherently unfair and cold blooded about such an arrangement. Even I had a hard time breaking from that programming because seeing everyone acting in a similar manner one starts to wonder if he is mentally unsound for viewing things like this as they really are and not how society says you should see them.

    They're not against educated women, they're against western education. They're against both boys and girls being educated in the western manner. That's why they murder the boys and abduct the girls. (Males always get it worse.)

    Nor do they strike me as being afraid. They seem rather to be full of religious zeal. It's their victims who are afraid, and for good reason.

    For the same reason that slaves in the South were not allowed to read.
