Re: Most Dangerous Current Women Pirates..

An interesting turnabout ... historically, there are stories of numerous women who disguised themselves as men to lead a life of freedom and adventure (and piracy). So, the modern version in Somalia these women seek a life of subservience.

That statement is inaccurate, and smacks of Western feminist culture. These women do not "seek" to be subservient. Subservience is a by-product or unintended consequence. These women are actually seeking protection and providers, or even wealth (or at least, access to wealth), as well as social stature by being married to a wealthy or famous pirate.

Up until 40 or 50 years ago, relationships in the United States were still widely defined in a similar way. In fact, even today, some marriages are defined by providership, and access to higher social circles. Celebrity marriages are one example.

I wouldn't look too steeply down my nose at these people.

Re: Most Dangerous Current Women Pirates..

Funny old cartoon about a pre homo-sapien hominid living in modern times had the Australopithecus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australopithecus) protaginist challenged by his human friends to find a human girlfriend. They assumed his part-ape appearance would be a significant issue. He comes back with several girls in a convertible BMW in short order and states that "conspicuous access to resources works in ANY era"

Re: Most Dangerous Current Women Pirates..

From what I understand of the article, the women are not becoming pirates, but becoming sex slaves in the hope of securing a marriage to a pirate, thus securing food for their families and village. You think the Somali men are desperate, image the fate of the woman, who has zero power, or rights. Sad business.

Wow, they are pathetic and sad on their own, grotesque in conjunction with this thread.

Re: Most Dangerous Current Women Pirates..

And to be a bigger wet blanket..

Somalia, 5th most dangerous country for women.

5. SOMALIA

One of the poorest, most violent and lawless countries, Somalia ranked fifth due to a catalog of dangers including high maternal mortality, rape, female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriage.

* 95 pct of women face FGM, mostly between the ages of 4 and 11.

* Only 9 pct of women give birth at a health facility.

* Only 7.5 pct of parliament seats are held by women.

Sources: AlertNet (Thomson Reuters Foundation | News, Information and Connections for Action), U.N. agencies, IRIN News, American Journal of Public Health, World Bank, Gender Index, Human Rights Watch, International Center for Research on Women.
