A vueltas con la poligamia
Aunque no os lo creais, un estudio que ha costado 150.000 dólares y ha sido financiado por el Departamento de Justicia y Mujer de Canadá ha recomendo despenalizar al poligamia:
A new study for the federal Justice Department says Canada should get rid of its law banning polygamy, and change other legislation to help women and children living in such multiple-spouse relationships.
``Criminalization does not address the harms associated with valid foreign polygamous marriages and plural unions, in particular the harms to women,'' says the report, obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act.
``The report therefore recommends that this provision be repealed.''
Chief author Martha Bailey says criminalizing polygamy, typically a marriage involving one man and several wives, serves no good purpose and prosecutions could do damage to the women and children in such relationships.
``Why criminalize the behaviour?'' she said in an interview. ``We don't criminalize adultery. ``In light of the fact that we have a fairly permissive society, why are we singling out that particular form of behaviour for criminalization?''
¿Por qué criminalizar este comportamiento? dice la autora del estudio. No criminalizamos el adulterio. A la luz de la sociedad permisiva que tenemos, ¿por qué señalar una forma especial de comportamiento para su criminalización?.
Porque NO es una forma de comportamiento: es la forma más clara de consideración de la mujer como un ser inferior al hombre: polygamous marriages are generally harmful to women's interests and would therefore promote inequality.
Liberal Justice Minister Irwin Cotler said he has seen only a summary of the research reports, but already rejects lifting the criminal ban on polygamy. ``At this point, the practice of polygamy, bigamy and incest are criminal offences in Canada and will continue to be,'' he said from Montreal.
Así que parece que el Ministro de Justicia -izqda- se niega a su despenalización.
La razón puede ser que la poligamia no sólo abunda en Francia -donde se ha tolerado en secreto por las autoridades-, si no también en Ontario, Canadá:
There's a very obvious constituency for polygamy, and it says something about the monumental self-absorption of the gay marriage crowd that they seem unaware of it. Indeed, it's already here. Earlier this summer, Le Monde leaked a government report revealing that polygamy was routinely practised in Muslim ghettos in France. Anecdotal evidence suggests things aren't so very different in the Islamic communities of Ontario: as The Christian Science Monitor airily put it, polygamous unions "are being performed by the same religious figures adjudicating matters under sharia"--i.e., under the province's Muslim-friendly Arbitration Act.

Y para terminar noticias desde Chechenia
Chechnya has lost so many men to war that survivors should be legally allowed to take several wives, acting Prime Minister Ramzan Kadyrov has said.
Speaking on Russian radio, the pro-Moscow leader said this was "necessary for Chechnya because we have war - we have more women than men".
He was backed by Russian parliamentary deputy speaker Vladimir Zhirinovsky.
Russian law restricts citizens to one marriage, but Islamic custom allows a man to take up to four wives.
'No interference
Mr Kadyrov told Ekho Moskvy radio that women in the Russian republic outnumbered men by 10%, and that a man should be able to choose how many wives he had without the state getting involved. "Every man decides for himself how he should live. He is the boss, he decides, I am sure that his personal life will not be interfered with," he said.
Mr Zhirinovsky, who is the leader of the ultra-nationalist Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR), said polygamy should be applied across Russia "because we have 10 million unmarried women".
He told the state-owned Itar-Tass news agency that he would introduce an amendment in the spring parliamentary session.
De modo que como Chechenia se ha quedado sin hombres, el presidente pro-Moscú, islámico Khadirov ha pedido que se introduzca la poligamia porque "estamos en guerra y hay más mujeres que hombres y que cada hombre pueda cogerse tantas mujeres como quiera sin que el Estado intervenga". Y le apoya Zhirinovsky (un líder ultra-nacionalista que apoya que las mujeres rusas no puedan casarse con extranjeros). Pero Zhirinovsky todavía fue más lejos y dijo que "la poligamia debía ser aplicada en toda Rusia porque hay 10millones de mujeres sin casarse" y que iba a presentar una enmienda para que se reforme la ley.
Así que este quiere la poligamia para hacerlas que se decidan, ¿no? Y ¿qué va a hacer obligarlas a casarse? ¿Constituir una agencia oficial rusa de matrimonios donde deban inscribirse todas las mujeres no casadas?
Well, Zhirinovsky, this man was the one who said that Russian women should not marry foreigners. And now wants to marry all of them. I guess: hmmm, This is for them to decide who to marry? to decide to marry? Is he going to make them marry? ¿Is he to make a Russian Marriage Bureau where all the Russian single females must queue to find a husband?

ACTUALIZACIÓN/UPDATE: Aparte muy interesante lo que dijo Zhirinovsky sobre Condoleeza Rice (vía Gates of Vienna):
>Condoleezza Rice released a coarse anti-Russian statement. This is because she is a single woman who has no children. She loses her reason because of her late single status. Nature takes it all. “Such women are very rough. They are all workaholics, public workaholics. They can be happy only when they are talked and written about everywhere: “Oh, Condoleezza, what a remarkable woman, what a charming Afro-American lady! (...)This is the only way to satisfy her needs of a female. She derives pleasure from it. If she has no man by her side at her age, he will never appear. Even if she had a whole selection of men to choose from she would stay single because her soul and heart have hardened…"
O lo que es lo mismo: hizo una declaración anti-rusa porque es una mujer soltera sin hijos. Pierde la razón por su estado civil de soltera a su edad. La naturaleza les quita todo. Esas mujeres son muy rudas. Son adictas al trabajo, públicas adictas al trabajo. Sólo son felices cuando se habla de ellas y se escibe sobre llas en todos los sitios: "¡Oh Condolezza, qué mujer más interesante qué señora afro-americana más encantadora! (...) Esta es la única manera de satisfacer sus necesidades de mujer. Deriva todo placer de eso. Como no tiene ya un hombre a su lado, ese hombre nunca aparecerá. Incluso si tuviera una selección de hombres para escoger de entre ellos,seguiría soltera porque su alma y su corazón se han endurecido"...
Ahora entiendo por qué quiere la poligamia. Atención, se ha perdido un Cromañón: se hace llamar Zhirinovski. Puede jugar con Ahmadenijad, que hoy ha dicho que hoy ha dicho que Occidente está en tiempos oscuros. Hombre, claro y con el fundamentalismo religioso islámico todavía será peor. Pero de eso ya me ocuparé otro día
Now I understand why he likes poligamy. Atention: there is a Cromangon man released and lost in Russia: he names himself Zhirinovsky. He play with Ahmadneijad that has said today that West is in dark ages. Man, of course, with the Islamic Fundamentalism, it would be worse. But that is the subject for anoter day.
