R.E.A.L. Women on Marital Rape
I'm curious why there's so much outrage in the New Conservative ranks about Karzai's cave-in (haha - unintentional pun!) to the whoevers of the Islamic militants in Afghanistan re wives having to sexually submit to their husbands. I mean, that's long been a hobby horse of R.E.A.L. Women (which has nothing to do with women and everything to do with Conservatism, of course).
And New Republican, David Frum's, wife, Danielle Crittenden, made a name for herself telling society that women should have to sexually submit to their husbands. This is the sort of society many New Conservatives have long sought for Canadian women. So I find it a bit disingenuous that New Conservatives are flapping their arms about the same devolution of women's rights they've espoused here, happening in Afghanistan.
