Taliban Publicly Execute Afghan Woman on ‘Trumped Up’ Adultery Charge

7/9/12

A gruesome video has caught the Taliban’s take on adultery in Afghanistan.

A Taliban fighter was caught on tape executing a woman accused of adultery with repeated shots to the back of her head as villagers and compatriots watched and cheered. The execution took place in a village less than an hour away from Kabul, the country’s capital.

“This cold-blooded murder, carried out in front of a crowd and recorded on video, is an unambiguous reminder to the Afghan people and the international community of the brutality of the Taliban,” the U.S. Embassy in Kabul said in a statement.

In the video, Taliban members can be heard saying that the executioner is the woman’s husband, although there are conflicting reports from Afghan officials.

Colonel Masjidi stated that the woman’s real husband is a member of a village militia that was responsible for the murder of a local Taliban leader. The woman was executed in revenge on trumped up charges of adultery, according to the Colonel.

Roshna Khalid, a spokeswoman for the provincial government, stated that the woman was killed for having multiple affairs with Taliban fighters.

A member of the provincial council, Qari Abdul Rahman Ahmadi, stated that the woman had run off with a Taliban commander. The commander was accused of leaking information to government officials and was shot to death in a nearby village before the woman was moved to Qol-i-Heer to be executed by her husband, according to Mr. Ahmadi.

In the video, the woman, Najiba, is seen kneeling in the background with her body turned away from the camera and her head covered with a gray scarf. Her turban-clad husband is seen approaching the woman and shoots her five times at close range with an automatic rifle. The 150 or so men in the crowd cheer as the execution occurs.

“Allah warns us not to get close to adultery because it’s the wrong way,” another man states as the shooter gets closer to the woman. “It is the order of Allah that she be executed.”

When the woman, Najiba, falls sideways after being shot several times in her head, the spectators chanted: “Long live the Afghan mujahideen! (Islamist fighters),” a name the Taliban use for themselves.

It is so sad and disheartening to hear this story, especially in this day and age. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

Are Macho Men More Loyal?

6/7/12

By: Allie

There’s a lot of negativity surrounding women who fall for “bad boys” and don’t go for the “nice ones” but are these “bad boys” really as bad as we think they are?

The stereotypical macho look is usually one of guys with wider faces and square jaws. This look tends to give people the impression that the man is cold and dishonest but new research from the U.K. is contradicting what people have thought for years!

Guys that have more “masculine” faces tend to have higher testosterone levels and are generally thought to be more aggressive than those with lower levels of testosterone. But a new study shows that while these types of men do tend to be more aggressive, they are more cooperative in situations where they needed to support their home team. Now while this study wasn’t conducted in regards to romantic relationships, it is very interesting information about “masculine” men.

Do you agree? Are macho men more loyal to their partner and family? Does their aggressiveness mean they are fierce protectors of their own? Tell me your thoughts in the comments below!

Facebook and Marriages… and Divorce: Is Social Media Ruining Marriages?

5/22/12

More than one-third of divorce filings last year contained the word “Facebook,” according to a survey by Divorce Online, a legal services firm. In addition, over 80% of U.S. divorce attorneys say they’ve seen an increase in the number of cases mentioning social networking, according to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

“Affairs happen with a lightning speed on Facebook, according to K. Jason Krafsky, author of the book Facebook and Your Marriage. In the real world, romances often take months or even years to develop but “on Facebook, they happen in just a few clicks.”

Social networks provide a place for old romances to reconnect and people to “friend” people they have may or may not have met.

“It puts temptation in the path of people who would never in a million years risk having an affair.”

What do you think? Can we blame Facebook for ruining marriages?

Who Has Affairs And Why

5/8/12

Who Has Affairs?

There have been many surveys conducted asking people their thoughts on monogamy. Every survey has always come up with similar conclusions: People think monogamy is important to marriage and infidelity is wrong.

The point of this is that no one is immune from affairs. People who think that they will never ever cheat in their lifetime, may end up cheating. Most people don’t intend to have an affair and don’t think it will happen to them- but for many, it does.

Why Do People Have Affairs?

When people learn of their partner’s infidelity, the first question that is usually asked is “Why?” They tend to blame themselves, their partner, their relationship, or the other person involved. They see it as a personal failure of the people involved. However, there is a very simple explanation to this question.

There are three different factors that are working together:

1. Forces that pull the individual towards the affair.
2. Forces that push the individual towards the affair.
3. Society

Forces that pull the individual towards the affair include:

-Attraction: sex, companionship, admiration, power
-Novelty
-Excitement, risk or challenge
-Curiosity
-Enhanced self-image
-Falling in love

Forces that push the individual towards the affair include:

-Desire to escape or find relief from a painful relationship
-Boredom
-Desire to fill gaps in an existing relationship
-Desire to punish one’s partner
-Need to prove one’s attractiveness or worth
-Desire for attention

Society:

Unfortunately, affairs are glamorized in all types of entertainment, whether it be the movies, television, novels, or music. Public figures are constantly being caught in affairs. There are (more than) half-naked images of women in many advertising and marketing campaigns, which sends the message to men that living the good life means having a parade of sexy women in their lives. As teenagers, we are conditioned to deceive our parents about our sexual activity. This in turn affects our adult lives. There are a number of reasons as to how societal factors affect people’s relationships.

MAIN POINT: There is no one single reason why people have affairs. It’s a combination of forces that pull the individual towards the affair, forces that push the individual towards the affair and an influence of society that lead an individual to having an affair.

Is It Chatting or Cheating? How To Tell If It’s More Than Just Innocent Communication

4/25/12

Email, social media and texting have made it easier than ever to connect with others. But for people in marriages and committed relationships, a conversation that starts off as innocent communication can easily turn into flirting or emotional cheating (and yes, it is possible to cheat without ever having sex!).

Where is the line drawn between innocent chatting and harmful cheating? Check out an interview below with Malia Karlinsky, GalTime and Sheri Meyers, Psy.D, licensed Marriage and Family Therapist:

GalTime: What is “Emotional Sex?”

Sheri Meyers Psy.D: Emotional sex is an affair of the heart that feels the same as romantic love and can manifest itself in numerous ways-physically, romantically, emotionally, lustfully, verbally, or virtually. Once emotional sex kicks in, fantasy takes over. The brain chemicals activated in emotional sex create the illusion that a “perfect love” exists and “destiny” is knocking. Emotional sex is an insidious form of infidelity that frequently occurs between two people who at first call themselves ‘just friends.’

GT: Who is more likely to get involved in this type of relationship?

SM: Women tend to have emotional affairs. Men tend to have physical and cyber affairs. Having an affair is usually a symptom of an underlying problem in the relationship. Often we feel like something is missing and we may consciously or unconsciously seek that something in someone else.

GT: How do these situations start? When does it cross the line between chatting and cheating?

SM: Emotional sex usually starts innocently. You become Friends with the sexy co-worker and decide to carpool to work together, or you reunite with an ex on Facebook and start to share stories and photos from the past. You know you’re crossing the line when…

SIGNS CHATTING IS BECOMING CHEATING:

- You start sharing more about yourself with your friend than your partner.
- You prefer talking to your ‘friend’ over your primary partner.
- You check for messages CONSTANTLY.
- You think about him or her more than your partner or your kids.
- Thoughts of your friend bring relief and an instant high.
