    Egypt women protesters forced to take 'virginity tests'

    A leading rights group says the Egyptian army arrested, tortured and forced women to take "virginity tests" during protests earlier this month.

    Amnesty International is calling on the authorities in Cairo to investigate.

    It says at least 18 female protesters were arrested after army officers cleared Tahrir Square on 9 March.

    "Change it had to come
    We knew it all along
    We were liberated from the fall that's all
    But the world looks just the same
    And history ain't changed
    'Cause the banners, they all flown in the last war. . .

    Meet the new boss
    Same as the old boss" The Who


    So very sad for these young women who has such hope.

    It was a shame that this happened. I honestly hope that the bastards who did this are bought to justice. Hopefully women's rights will be more respected when the revolution is over.

    Also I saw this two days ago on Raw Story, you need to keep up with the news

    Edit: BTW the tongue pic means I am just joking around.

    You'd have to tell the Republican party first because they are the ones who put us there in the first place. It's been damage control ever since.

    Let's play a game. It's called: we'll take one bad thing about a place or people, and then try to say the whole place is bad.

    Absolutely disgusting as usual, Erod.

    Re: Egypt women protesters forced to take 'virginity tests'

    The list of examples of the leftists engaging in political romances with tyrants is long:
    • Noam Chomsky in Lebanon in May 2006 to embrace Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah



    • Academic Norman Finkelstein, a Jewish leftist, venerating Hamas and Hezbollah

    • Naomi Klein calling out in a column in The Nation for Muqtada al-Sadr's killing fields to come to New York

    • Tom Hayden reaching the next stage of his totalitarian high by meeting Klein's hero, al-Sadr, in London

    • British Member of Parliament George Galloway visiting Syria in November 2005, prostrating himself before its despot and giving a speech at Damascus University in which he denounced America and Israel and extended his support to every possible enemy of the United States – from the terrorists in Iraq to Fidel Castro and Hugo Chávez.

    • Code Pink along with SDS founder Bernadine Dohrn supporting the Gaza Flotilla

    • Barack Obama inviting the Muslim Brotherhood to attend his Cairo visit and lending support to protestors in Egypt while he ignored those in Iran.



    Why?

    What the hell is a virginity test?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Determining if the hymen is intact or not.

    The problem with such a “test” is that a hymen can tear for reasons other than copulation.

    It should be noted that a positive virginity test is is not an indication of sexual activity.

    There can be other thing that can cause a woman or even young girls to have a hymen that is no longer intact than having had sex.

    That's why side-saddles were invented.
