Reference: Rape victim gets lash, Bangkok Post, November 17, 2007
There are societies among the human race that find it rational to punish a 19-year-old rape victim with 200 lashes of the whip and 6 months of jail for the crime of being raped (Rape victim gets lash, Bangkok Post, November 17, 2007). Surely theirs and ours are mutually exclusive civilizations. If they are civilized then we are not and if we are civilized then they are not. It's a clash of civilizations.
