A bit more on the Pashtun boy-banging situation

I've been reading some various "We shouldn't judge" stuff on the story a couple of days ago; I stand by my title.

The U.S. army medic also told members of the research unit that she and her colleagues had to explain to a local man how to get his wife pregnant.

The report said: "When it was explained to him what was necessary, he reacted with disgust and asked, 'How could one feel desire to be with a woman, who God has made unclean, when one could be with a man, who is clean? Surely this must be wrong.'"
The report also detailed a disturbing practice in which older "men of status" keep young boys on hand for sexual relationships. One of the country's favorite sayings, the report said, is "women are for children, boys are for pleasure."

The report concluded that the widespread homosexual behavior stems from several factors, including the "severe segregation" of women in the society and the "prohibitive" cost of marriage
A culture that so denigrates half their population, and overlooks the rape of kids because, well, they don't really count in such matters, is sick. And no amount of "It's their culture!" bullshit is going to change my mind on that.

Some more arguing on the matter over at Gay Patriot.

This behavior was also prevalent around Sharm in the southern Sinai when I was there. There were a number of soldiers I knew who were propositioned by taxi drivers. The infantry would get very rattled by this. The possibility of having to fight was one thing, but having a taxi driver turn around at 50 mph and proposition you was another.

Funny how "it's their culture" is supposed to excuse this, but American Baptists or Mormons or any other group is not allowed to even have a culture.
In the same vein female circumcision is excused as "their culture" by American feminists who then seek to eliminate "men only" clubs.
