no, I think you mean radical Islam. the same could happen within any culture run by extremists of any religion or sect or belief system. Islam isn't a fundamentally anti-women religion.

in related news, so messed up.

"[Rape] happens when women are given freedom to roam around, sing and dance" is a hell of a sentence.

Are you saying that blanket statements about groups of people are often misguided and irresponsible? Or just that islam has some sort of protected status from religion bashing?

edit: to be fair this thread only has a few examples of that kind of rhetoric so my righteous indignation might be jumping the gun. Shitty story that could only come from the middle east or north korea in any case.

It sucks when you think of how messed up a lot of shit is in the world. But on the other hand, this is a band of 15-16 girls playing rock music in a place where it is definitely not encouraged. How badass is that?

I sympathize with them. People in my church want my band to break up because we're not a religious band. But we stay together.

I do have to lie to some of my closest family, just cos they dont understand that it's just art.

Actually, if they did indeed call it quits, then doesn't it prove they weren't so punk after all?
Because they gave into their society's pressure.

But I have hope that they still jam in secret, at least. And that they can hold secret shows.
That would give new meaning to underground music.

Shit like this happens when lousy backwards people are given the freedom to be made into leaders.

They and their families are being threatened by religious extremists. I think they probably care more about that than about being punk.

You're right. That's too bad. Hopefully they kept it going as long as they could, though.

They wouldn't have played instruments if they didn't want women to get gang-raped. They all knew this was coming.
What? I'm confused by what you're saying.
