Ladies, thank the good Lord you live here

In Somalia, women are being WHIPPED for wearing... wait for it... BRAS. Yes, bras. I don't even know how to begin to understand the reasoning behind this.

Is it because it is a western custom to hold them in place so they don't get in the way while you're doing your daily tasks? Is that why they are being forbidden? The following article states that they look "too firm". Are they being banned because they are considered a sexual perversion if they're not naturally firm and held in place?

You have to remember, in these Muslim cultures women are not worth much more than cows or camels. Taking away a common physical convenience such as a bra is just another way for them to be kept in a lower status. They wear cumbersome and uncomfortable clothing meant to once again, remind them of how submissive position in life.

Follow the link and read the article. It simply makes my blood boil. We value women in this country. We enjoy a kind of freedom that these women will likely never even realize exists.

If someone happens to pop your bra strap today, maybe you should say, "Thank you for reminding me that I love America." If they look at you crazy, direct them to this article.
