Starving the little woman

| Disqus Comments
Remember that rape law (to be more precise, the law legalizing marital rape) that Afghanistan's Hamid Karzai tried to pass earlier this year?

It's been amended. But most of the media haven't delved beyond that. The Independent, however, which broke the original story, has done so.

Husbands may no longer rape their wives. Instead, they may now starve them into sexual submission.

The ethicists among us will have to explain the fine distinctions here. But while we're having that discussion, may we please bring our troops home?
