At least in Southern Afghanistan. Turns out the old biddies die of natural causes with their virtue intact since the Taliban boyz accustomed to ruling the roost down Kanduhar way are, you know: Teh ghey.
The fact that Taliban militants‚Äô spare time involves sodomizing young boys should by no means be any kind of surprise or eyebrow raiser. That a mass pathology such as this occurs in a culture which demonizes the female and her sexuality — and puts her out of mind and sight — is only to be expected. To be sure, it is a simple given that the religious male fanatic who flies into a violent rage even at the thought of an exposed woman‚Äôs ankle will also be, in some other dysfunctional and dark secret compartment of his fractured life, the person who leads some poor helpless young boy into his private chambers.
Reached by satellite phone in in the transborder region, Taliban leader Mullah Omar denied being ghey, insisting that he “just had a wide stance.”
Update: You know, not for nothing? But it kind of puts this whole thing in context, doesn’t it?
