So, the democrats tried throughout the last election to convince the votes that republicans are waging a 'war on women'... whatever that might be.  Apparently because republicans tend to loathe abortion (something that kills an awful lot of future women), those mean ol' republicans must be waging war on women.  I'm not sure of the logic behind that but there it is.

Meanwhile, across the pond there is a real 'war' on women and they're having a sale.  If you want a woman of your own, islam has some pretty reasonable prices: 

In response, the group determined specific prices for women and children, while “vowing to execute whoever violates those controls.” This is the worth of a human life, according to ISIS: 

  • A woman, 40 to 50-years-old: 50,000 dinars. ($42.90)
  • A woman, 30 to 40-years-old: 75,000 dinars. ($64.35)
  • A woman, 20 to 30-years-old: 100,000 dinars. ($85.80)
  • A girl, 10 to 20-years-old: 150,000 dinars. ($128.70)
  • A child, 1 to 9-years-old: 200,000 dinars. ($171.60) 

New York PostDaily MailRTInternational Business TimesOpposing Views and Christianity Today are among the few outlets to report on the story.

I'm not actually a conservative but I find it noteworthy that the rags that have chosen to air this atrocity are mainly conservative rags.

 In explaining something to a woman, have you ever said, it's like having a baby?
What on earth ever gave the men who have said that to me the arrogance to think they even had a clue?

Men think they know about rape comparing it to a big deal made over a daughter's cut......loss of control over your own life is a traumatic look at reality that doesn't go away as the skin heals.

Brave Miss World, Netflix instant play, is another exploration of rape that is shocking on a global scale.

Two teenage girls accused of committing adultery have been stoned to death by Islamic State militants in Syria. Hasna, 17, and Madiha, 16, died after the assault in Deir ez-Zor city, eastern Syria.

The two men they were with, identified by the Sharia Court as Abu Zubair al-Idlbi and Maher Hameed, escaped with 50 lashes in a public flogging.

...

A fortnight ago, four women were raped by Islamic State fighters and then stoned to death after being accused of "committing adultery." The victims were arrested even though Islamic State militants were said to have caught them being abused during a raid in the city of Mosul. They were brought before a Sharia court that ordered them to be publicly executed without giving any details about their alleged abusers.

ISIS militants have stoned to death 2 teenage girls who were accused of committing adulter

ISIS is using a metal tool called 'the Biter' to clip the flesh of women who disobey its dress code

 It's easier to recognize and discuss what's going on over there than address what builds up to that going on here in the minds of men who think they own women and can slap them around like dogs.
Takes a mighty good man to beat having no man in a woman's life.  Married one, but wouldn't risk it again....

Should keep an eye out for developments here that could be countered now rather than have people take to the streets the way they did in India at some future outrage, because we didn't see or want to admit we are as bad as all that.....hubris brings down the mightiest.

Some states are considering legislation to ban sharia law.....seems like a way to keep women here safe from what's going on there and spreading......

I have never had a problem with men pushing me around.  That is, American men.  Maybe I have a persona of you're going to do what to me?  Are you kidding?  Buzz off.  I'm not sure what it is (unless I'm ugly but I'm not) but I am not intimidated by the men in this country.  I also have not gotten myself into a predicament with a man where he thinks he can do what he wants.  Nor have I ever found myself with a group of men without women around.

That doesn't count when it's me who wants to rip the pants off a guy.

Assault, rape, murder, torture... all illegal here* and that's not going to change, ever.  Those things are not part of our culture, not allowed in the dominant religions or even most of the minority religions.

Nor will sharia law ever become a thing because... guns.  We have lots of guns.  Big guns.  Little guns.  Guns that are pink.  Those shiteaters can only get away with their crap because most of the people they're brutalizing are unarmed.

Really?

Cause, a while back I looked into Indonesia as everyone was saying it was an example of an islamic government that wasn't insane.  Turned out that while sharia isn't the official law of the land, it is the unofficial one.

So... I'm wondering if there are any particular places you have in mind?

Yes, I've seen that.

When organized crime takes over a city, it isn't 'the law' or 'the legal system' yet it exists and controls aspects of the city none the less.

It appears to me that sharia works in much the same manner... at least in Indonesia.

 The rights of women have come and gone for centuries.  You can be sickened by how other countries treat women, but domestic violence here at home is still being worked out in courts of law and warning posters are still being put up trying to call attention to the problem no one wants to see.

Is it the proper role of a government to censor advertising based upon the religious beliefs of a minority of the population, WRS?  And given the tried and true method of incremental 'mission creep' most governments use to impose ever greater restrictions upon people, you have no qualms about where this censorship is heading?
Come to the Dark Side. We have cookies. The advantage of insinuations over hard arguments is that they bypass critical thought. No one can respond precisely to a charge that is utterly vague or to accusers who will envelope any reply in a poisonous fog of further insinuations. ~ David Warren, The Guardian There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long time and that captures an important point. The more powerful the government becomes, the more people are willing to do in order to seize the prize, and the more afraid they become when someone else has control. ~ Glenn Harlan Reynolds “The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve.” ― H.L. Mencken

London Transport may have been started by private enterprise but has been municipalised many decades ago.  The owners canaccept or deny what they want.  They need the money so there scope is limited.  As for the specific advert being dicussed it is not the sort of thing that is going to bother me but if I had a 13 year old daughter not sure that I would be comfortable to her being subjected to such an unrealistic standard.
