Way to blame the victim, guys.

Yeah, that's TOTALLY going to deter rapists.

Fundamentalist Islam, bringing "She was asking for it" to a whole new level since 570.

Oh - it's to protect women!

And basically, they are protected by not being allowed to be attractive.

And I always thought St. Paul was bad...

everyone knows women who wear lip gloss are asking for it.

Aw, shucks. Does that mean I can't wear lip gloss????? (I'm heartbroken. Simply heartbroken.)

lip gloss is sticky and gross anyways.

All right boys, now that we've got that pesky rape issue covered, can we tackle the issue of rampant misogyny? No?

Posted by UNPAID BLOGGER | June 24, 2008 9:26 AM

yeah, that oughta do it.

What are they going to do with the men who are turned on by natural lips without lip gloss?
Maybe they can make lip covers now.

My husband hates lips gloss but I love to wear it! Maybe I need savage love advice to kick my lip gloss addiction.

and high heels that "click" when you walk. silent rubber-soled ones are ok. now that's interesting. let's dissect the rationale there, as it's a bit more obscure. the sound of the clicking is sexually exciting....hmmm....ummm... i got nuthin'.

straight guys, help me out here.

I thought that gloss was for like the mouth region, not "down there." Gives new meaning to "read my lips." Or did I miss something?

Well, at least now Cindy McCain isn't the only makeup slathering trollop on the block, right? As for the rubber heeled shoes, I'm hoping it, like the lack of flashy makeup, is just one more step towards making minorities totally invisible, neither seen nor heard! Good trick, eh?

@11 - I wish I could help you, but I tend to find the clicking sound more annoying than anything else.

Posted by Hernandez | June 24, 2008 10:21 AM

13, actually "inaudible" rather than "invisible" but i get your point, and it's a good one; it's not that the clicking is per se exciting, but that it generally brings more attention to them.

I've been there (in 2001).

There's a McDonald's and a market where women in shorts and t-shirts sell tasty grilled chicken. I learned how to make curried chicken from a guy in his house.

Just 2 hours away by bus and boat are the Perhentian Islands, where you'll find incredible snorkeling, a perpetual $8 BBQ fish dinner (warning: service is slow), and topless sunbathing Europeans.

This law, like many other restrictive laws in Malaysia, apply only to Muslims, which are about half the population. Perhaps we should adopt a similar legal standard here, creating harsh laws for adultry and homosexuality that apply only to Christian fundamentalists. Let the youth pastors suffer the punishments they've longed for!

so THATS why every day I wear lipstick I get raped...

it all makes sense now.

Posted by catnextdoor | June 24, 2008 12:06 PM

Knuckle draggers.

Posted by Vince | June 24, 2008 12:47 PM

Cool! Now I'll never have to worry about walking down a dark alley by myself as long as I'm NOT wearing lipstick. Saved!
Oh wait, walking by myself is asking for it ... better stay home.
