Oh dear...this is a rather big shock to me, because whenever my brother asked me "If you had to pick one favorite wrestler, who would it be?!" (even tho I hated this crap) it'd either be the Rock or this guy. blink.gif

My poor bro is still in shock and didn't believe me when I told him (he was the first to tell me he died, but he didn't know how). =/ I never approved of him watching this crap, but still. Poor kid.

I agree with Fushigi.. poor kid. Whatever the motive, or the cause was, it's a tragedy!! sad.gif

Now we can just hope this is put in effect in the many other countries where it's rampant.

Indeed. What a vile, barbaric, misogynistic practice that is.

I totally agree. I had a friend who was from an Asian country (I wouldn't name it, tho I know which one,) and the victim of this practice. It's a horribly inhumane custom, IMO. And, in many parts of Africa they don't even take the girls to the medical facilities, and many girls die, or suffer horribly form the operations. I give credit to Egypt for finally making a total ban on this.
Popogeejo
Yeah, go Egypt, way to meet the lowest standards of acceptability.

Honestly, congratulating them for making this illegal is like congratulating any country that makes rape or murder illegal.
It's bloody expected.
Toby-Chan
Baby steps, Popo. Don't forget that there still are a lot of cultures that actively promote rape and murder as legal punishments for crimes.

As a whole, we're not quite there, yet.

Damn, if I had a car like that I would be the envy of all the "cool kids at University". rolleyes.gif Pretty damn interesting design though. (I am still creeped out by that pool drain story. When I was young one of my friends told me about a girl getting her hair caught in a pool drain and then drowning too death. I never thought that something similar to that could actually happen. It is a miracle that the girl survived.)

Racist Belgian

More interesting than the link sounds....more poltical correctness gone mad in my mind. If we follow this trend, I might add, I think you should ban Pirates of the Caribbean as it depicts all South Americans as cannibals! (or wherever they were meant to be) ((not really my POV)).
Edamame
It makes me sad how far we have to go with political correctness nowadays. This reminds me of a similar incident that happened in the U.S. where a Seven Eleven convience store was converted into a repclica of Abu's Kwiki-Mart from the Simpsons. It is becoming increasingly difficult these days to discern if something really is truly racist. (Is it possible to be so politically correct that you can swing right back around to being "racist"?) What are we going to ban next? This would make for a rather interesting topic in the Debate forum.
Fushi
Listen up, and listen good. if Tintin is going get banned...it's going be because of the rhinoceros he killed! O:<

QUOTE
Tia Dalma is definitely in “Magical Negro” territory. She’s overly willing to help the white characters, often for a smaller price than one might expect and even after Jack steals from her. She is exploited by the white characters, and the film offers no criticism for this. Rather, it’s intended to be funny. White people ripping off a black woman who is helping them? Totally hilarious! [/sarcasm]Furthermore, there was the treatment of Dalma’s sexuality. Hey, I’m all for sexuality. If it was just Dalma lusting after Will and Jack, I’d call her an honorary fan and be done with it. My problem is that her sexuality was also treated as a joke. The film made it perfectly clear that there was no way that Jack nor Will would actually be romantically interested in her. A Black woman thinking she is sexually/romantically desirable? Hahahaha! [/more sarcasm]

Cause, you know, back then white people would've totally trusted black women and not try to use them! [/sarcasm]

It's called historical accuracy. Get over it. You're taking sucha thing too seriously. You should be happy actually that despite all this about Tia, [spoiler]they made a black woman an almighty goddess[/spoiler]. >>


The things people get worked up about. It's just like the Iranians getting worked up over 300.
Toby-Chan
They said it's a joke that neither Jack nor Will would be interested in Tia Dalma... but when Tia Dalma was talking to Jack, I was under the impression that she was already totally tapping that. (And that maybe she was a little too much woman for him to handle. Most everyone seemed pretty threatened by her prowess.)
