Afghan girls poisoned for trying to go to school

CNN reports that about 120 girls were poisoned in Takhur province in Afghanistan for going to school or wanting an education.  The news story reports that the Taliban is retaliating for banning motorcycles or small vehicles used in insurgency.  But even a large number of boys were also victims.

Tribal or family culture of the Taliban demands that men have domination over economic and cultural matters as part of how men experience marital sexuality, in radical Islam.

It always bemused me that a man would find someone so dependent on him interesting. When I grew up, that sort of psychology never made sense.
