Iranian Woman Calls for 'Slut Women' to be Stoned...on the Pages of Calif. Paper

News

"these women who freely sleep with married men must be severely punished and put to death"

A woman is stoned in Afghanistan for committing adultery.

Infidelity seems rampant in our culture and during these times. Just recently, Arnold Schwarzenegger is alleged to have had a love child with his housekeeper. So what's the solution to this problem? Shamci Rafani of Visalia, CA has a proposal: stone the "sluts" responsible.

In a letter to the editor that appeared in yesterday's Visalia Times-Delta, Rafani -- herself the victim of infidelity -- angrily calls for the death of woman who knowingly engage in an affair. And she didn't hold back:

But the woman who had been aware of her wrongdoing, and yet had done it without any shame or fear, must be punished severely.

Yes, in many countries, the public will stone that woman to death.

Believe me, that might be the right answer to the behavior of these kind of loose women, who want to blame it all on men.

My main question is, how many more families have to be destroyed?

[...]

These women not only must not be awarded, but they must pay for destroying the happiness and the future of their victims, especially this woman who lived with the family and had become a member of that family.

These slut women do not know how to say no. To my judgment, these women who freely sleep with married men must be severely punished and put to death.

If the lawmakers do something about it, you will find less stories like Arnold's.

Those are some strong words. And the absurdity of them raises more then a few questions. The man one: Is this a joke? Gawker went digging and found that, no, it's not a joke. Rafani is a real woman, and bringing adultress women to justice has become her life goal:

The Visalia Times-Delta didn't respond to our inquiry. By phone, Shamci Rafani assured us that she is a real person, a 77-year-old immigrant from Iran. She says her husband left her thirty years ago for another woman, and since then she has been dedicated herself to speaking out against "sluts" in letters to the editor and a self-published book.

I guess there's nothing like a woman's scorn. And I guess adulterers in the U.S. should be glad that capital punishment -- unlike in Iran and other countries in the Mideast-- is reserved for the killers and traitors.
