Will Lay There Angry For Food?

According to an article in the Guardian, a new law has been passed in Afghanistan that would allow Shia men to deny their wives food if they are “disobedient”, which includes denying them sex. In addition, it apparently allows men to evade prosecution for rape if they pay “blood money” to the woman they raped. There’s something very sacred and important about being able to decide what happens with one’s own body and most men may never know first hand what it feels like to be penetrated – to allow it or to make decisions about it not happening at that moment, with a certain person or at all.
