The internet was all a-Twitter today due to a girl's birthday card that reads "You're 13 today! If you had a rich boyfriend he'd give you diamonds and rubies. Well maybe next year you will - when you have bigger boobies!" Of course thousands of people rushed to Tweet how wrong such a card is, but after reading many of the attacks it's really hard to tell if the "Twits" who tweeted them have more of a problem with girls becoming women, girls getting presents, or young men liking boobies. Obviously the card creators believe girls have a sense of humor and enough intelligence to know a joke card when they see one. But for some reason the card attackers do not. So we have to ask: do young women really need to be protected from humor, sex, and romance by "society"? To help us decide we note that also in the news today was the story about Afghanistan's 2nd minister of women's affairs being assassinated just as the 1st one was. It's no secret that fundamentalist Muslim movements around the world like the one in Afghanistan are killing young openly sexual women at a record rate for modern times. It's an attempt to turn all women into sex slaves, to keep them at home and out of sight. And since any intelligent woman in politics would speak out against such plans they are being jailed or killed outright. Opponents of the birthday card claim to be against sexism but if this is true then why didn't even one of them speak out against the assassination? What is truly shocking and horrible are the people who think young women are nothing but unthinking, impressionable lumps of mush who will self-destruct without "help" and "protection" from the "evils" of womanhood. Ultimately both the card attackers and the assassins in Afghanistan want to prevent young women from embracing sexuality and romance as a normal part of a young woman's goals. Ask yourself: is agreeing with killers meant to stop them, or encourage them? We offer this playfully sexual and wistfully romantic set of Hayley-Marie as proof that female sexuality when left unfettered leads to nothing more awful than female freedom and male pleasure. And while many "Twits" would say it's sexist, we now know better don't we?
