Ridiculous

The guys in charge of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces in Egypt are not making a good impression of themselves. Reading this makes you think that they are really not a very bright bunch.

They arrest a group of female protesters in Tahrir Square on March 9 and they think that these women are going to falsely accuse them of raping them, so what do they do? They subject them to forced virginity tests.

Amnesty International's secretary general, Salil Shetty rightly said that this doesnt make any sense.

What kind of idiot would commit torture and sexual abuse to avoid being accused of rape? This is not clever to say the least.

The military council dude who met the amnesty sec gen spoke again... and made things worse. He said that women seeking to work for the army are required to undertake ‘virginity tests’!

Isn't this a bit perverted? Why should any woman applying for any job be subjected to this?
