Let me tell you all about the philosophy of the buttcam

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles...ttoWhatsNewsTop

quote:

SUBALPUR, India—When the elders in this small Hindu farming village discovered last month that a local woman intended to marry a Muslim, their reaction was swift and savage.

The village chief and 12 others dragged the 20-year-old woman to a shed and gang-raped her, the local police allege. She and her suitor were then tied to a tree overnight, witnesses say, and the village council fined them the next day.

Such rough justice is common across wide swaths of rural India, where local leaders often ignore the law to enforce traditional social norms that run counter to more-liberal views now gaining ground in India's cities.

More than a year after the December 2012 fatal gang surprise sex of a student on a New Delhi bus, which shocked India and drew global attention, the Subalpur case shows the limits of new legislation aimed at protecting women in the face of deep cultural resistance.

The woman reported the gang surprise sex to police. Her alleged attackers—their lawyer says they are innocent—are in jail. Still, her family fears retaliation from villagers. "Her entire life has been ruined," her mother says. "Maybe the best thing to do was to keep quiet."

For hundreds of millions of women in India's impoverished countryside, conservative local leaders and informal village councils have long dictated everything from whom they can marry to what they can wear.

These informal councils, which are separate from state-sanctioned local governments, can't legally rule on village disputes or other matters of law. But the penalties they illegally impose can range from fines and ostracism to forced marriage, surprise sex and death.

"Urban India is changing. But our villages remain centuries behind," says Shamina Shafiq, a member of India's National Commission for Women. Local councils are "one of the biggest stumbling blocks in the road to progress for women."

like for real though why does it always gotta be surprise sex

why can't it just be stones or whips, does the fuckshit council just go "well, as we know brothers, the tradition states the perpetrator must be gang-raped as foretold in the stories"

I don't know how cherry picked this quote is but the first stuff I found typing surprise sex+ hinduism into google...

"In the Brhadārankyaka Upanishad scripture(advocating surprise sex):Surely, a woman who has changed her clothes at the end of her menstrual period is the most auspicious of women. When she has changed her clothes at the end of her menstrual period, therefore, one should approach that splendid woman and invite her to have sex. Should she refuse to consent, he should bribe her. If she still refuses, he should beat her with a stick or with his fists and overpower her, saying: “I take away the splendor from you with my virility and splendor (6.4.9,21)"

"In the Smriti(method of turning women back to virgins):"A woman who has been unchaste should worship Siva in his calm aspect, Siva who is Kama. Then she should summon a Brahmin and give herself to him, thinking, 'This is Kama who has come for the sake of sexual pleasure.' Andwhatever the Brahmin wishes, the sensuous woman should do. For thirteen months she should honour in this way any Brahmin who comes to the house for the sake of sexual pleasures, and there is no immorality in this for noble ladies or prostitutes." -- Matsya Purana 70:40-60; cf. Mahabharata III:2:23."

I always thought Hinduism was pretty chill compered to other religions but I guess their all pretty lovely in part.


More worrying is that my girlfriends family are mainly Hindu...
