(Not so) Happy Slapping

Proof, if proof were needed of our continued progress towards the Inferno in a handcart. Evidence of girls and young women being physically abused and bullied by the young charmers seeking their affections. And there was me thinking feminism had freed women from those violent, loveless marriages in the Mythical Golden Age.

Still, there's always Islam, the Religion of Peace (TM) to offer a solution.

Now for your homework.

A little thought experiment.

Close your eyes.

The President of the Pontifical Council for the Family goes on EWTN to give husbands some guidance on the right amount of physical chastisement they might dish out to their wives. Now, imagine the headline in The Guardian and the leading story on Today and Newsnight.
