Sometimes you just recieve glaring proof that as hard as we try to pull the world into civilization (to make it a safer place for us) there will always be some dark cave infested with neaderthals pulling in the opposite direction. And it doesn't get any more glaring than this:
Bus drivers in Swaziland have threatened to rape any female passenger seen wearing a miniskirt.
They have banned women from wearing revealing clothes on buses after three men were arrested for allegedly gang-raping an 18-year-old schoolgirl at a bus station in the town of Manzini.
Witnesses said the men - a bus driver and two conductors - shouted abuse at the girl for wearing a miniskirt.
When about 1,000 women demonstrated against the attack, drivers and conductors threatened to do the same again. One conductor said: "Women who wear miniskirts want to be raped, and we will give them what they want."
And for those of you who (like myself) aren't exactly walking atlas (atlasses, atlasi?), this is what our good friends at the CIA have to say about Swaziland.
