United Nations Have Lost The Plot

Oooh goodie!

This is either reverse psychology by the United Nations or it’s a friggin typo. Guess who has a four year seat on the U.N.’s Commission on the Status of Women? Come on, have a wild stab! Iran people, Iran. WTF! Evidently if you read right down deep on the latest U.N. press release, you’ll find it. They, with 10 other nations were “elected by acclamation” (no open vote). Terrific. I guess it will save them on paperwork… who needs to send them a harsh letter condemning their stoning and lashing of women, when they can just slip them a note at one of their get togethers. Hmm, I wonder if anyone will raise the issue of boobquake? You know,where the senior clerics believe earthquakes  are caused by women who wear revealing clothing. Anywho, while everyone is left scratching their heads in wonderment a group of Iranian activists sent a petition to the United Nations saying in part “women lack the ability to choose their husbands, have no independent right to education after marriage, no right to divorce, no right to child custody, have no protection from violent treatment in public spaces, are restricted by quotas for women’s admission at universities, and are arrested, beaten, and imprisoned for peacefully seeking change of such laws.” I’d love to be a fly on the wall of their first meeting!
