A leading Egyptian scholar has demanded that people caught importing a female virginity-faking device into the country should face the death penalty.
Abdul Mouti Bayoumi said supplying the item was akin to spreading vice in society, a crime punishable by death in Islamic Sharia law.
The device is said to release liquid imitating blood, allowing a female to feign virginity on her wedding night.
It is manufactured in China and is reported to be on sale in Syria for $15.
Look at all the goodies packed in there for the shrieeeeking hateslingers.
Death penalty -- probably by beheading -- for importing an innocuous product? Barbaric!
Women needing to fake virginity?
Weird obsession with virginity? Hmmm. That one is OK with the wingnutz because they are too.
So, I went looking for a description of the device and found that I missed it when it hit the Intertoobz last December via the Frisky.
From Our Bodies Our Blog:
According to the product description, once inserted the device “will expand a little and make you feel tight. When your lover penetrate [sic], it will ooze out a liquid that look [sic] like blood not too much but just the right amount. Add in a few moans and groans, you will pass through undetectable.”
The post included a link to a company offering it, but, sadly, the link no longer works.
Given that it is made in China -- a place not known for its purity of manufacturing standards -- it would be a pretty desperate woman who felt she had to try to fake her virginity using it. Let alone any worry about the death penalty for importing it.
But then being a woman in a society -- any society -- that treats its women like second-class citizens is often a desperate business.
There. A feminist has spoken.
