I was looking at the photo of the Afghan woman who had her nose and ears lopped off by her in-laws. I understand this happens often, along with the sale of daughters to pay debts.
My suggestion (I try to avoid the word curse) ... Since the men in that part of the world think so little of women, perhaps they should be blessed with only male children from now on. The happy father can have 10 healthy sons. No more women born to those families EVER. Let them do their own cooking and cleaning. As for sex... There is always the goat.
