A Little Light Beating For Those Erring Wives
February 20, 2003 9:50 AM   Subscribe

Wife-Bashing Lite And The $5000 Dollar Solution: Your wife erring a bit of late? Things getting out of hand? Well, just make sure she's being a bad, bad wife before you strike, for "It is certainly against Islam to beat a good wife. An erring wife should be warned first and advised. If that does not work, then the husband could give her a light beating, the purpose of that being to embarrass rather than inflict pain." My advice: forget about the light beating hassle, let the poor woman err to her heart's content and invest instead in a cyborgasmatrix, absolute submission guaranteed; no questions unanswered. [Tongue-in-cheek alert, of course, but beware second link: though undeniably interesting, it's creepy, morbid and NSFW. Both links from Linkfilter.]

Everytime it seems like man is taking a step forward he fucks up and does something like this.

My initial reaction:

why select an Islamic quote? Why select that Islamic quote (This one - "Any man who is violent toward his wife is sick and should seek treatment. If he cannot treat himself then the society should; if the society cannot then the court must. Women should not be exposed to violence. Tough laws should be introduced against violent men.” - is from the same article)?
And what is the connection with fuck-dolls?

Not up to your par, Miggy, not up to your par.

Everytime it seems like man is taking a step forward he fucks up and does something like this. - Does that refer to MC?

Not that I'm an expert or anything, but that has got to be one of the most fucked up and creepy looking sex dolls that I've ever seen. She's got stumps for arms and legs, for the love of God! So wrong.

I never understood why some people need to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on a doll to, essentially, jerk off. Maybe my priorites are just screwed up, I dunno.

How do you give someone a "light beating"?
