Incidentally this is the same country that Sheik Obama has authorised the sale of $500 million dollars worth of attack helicopters to. I suppose they will use these US made toys to kill the indigenous inhabitants of West Papua who still dare to oppose the colonisation of their country by Indonesia. I wonder how turds like Obama sleep at night!

In Islam, the women always have to pay for the men's obsession with sexuality.

Indonesia is a corrupt Muslim dump controlled by perverted misogynists with medieval mind-sets.
Poor girls.

Was out this morning shopping, picked up something, don't remember what and saw it was produced in Indonesia, I put it back as if it had acid on it, there are few less hospitable to women countries in the world than Indonesia. It is too bad the coming rise in sea level will render it another Atlantis - at least they won't be burning anyone alive then.

I do not know. Does this mean that the young girls who do not pass the virginity test do not get to go to high school? Does this mean that they will be denied an education?

Remember, Muhammad married a six-year-girl who he kept pure before deflowering her at age nine. He, however, practiced “thighing” with her all during the three years before her deflowering. I learned this from a comment from another Care2 member.

I sincerely have a feeling that many young girls are sexually assaulted from nine years old and on by their fathers, older brothers, cousins, uncles, and grandfathers.

Would not this be a method of ensuring that high schools were all-boy-schools!!!!
