Imagine a Society Where Judy Garland Is Seen As an Evil Whore Who Deserves to be Raped

Imagine a society where Judy Garland would be assessed as an evil whore who deserved to be raped. Or Edith Piaf or Maria Callas or Ella Fitzgerald.

Imagine Afghanistan:

"If a woman sings and a man hears her, he will think her voice is beautiful and will lust after her. Maybe he will be on the street separated by the wall or in a neighbor's walled courtyard. Maybe he will never see the woman who sings, but he hears her voice. If that happens, he will want her. It's her fault. She has sinned. She made him want her. The sin is hers. She will be punished. That's why a woman should never sing, even in her own walled courtyard."

The above quote was spoken by a Muslim Afghan woman. She is quoted in "In the Land of the Blue Burqas" by Kate McCord.

From a Muslim website: "It is gravely sinful for women to go out with bare head, hair, arms, and legs, to let their voice be heard by men."

According to this website, every time a woman allows a man to whom she is not related to hear her voice, she sins.
