    Polygamy Problems For Indonesia’s 50-Year-Old Virgins? 

    Yesterday I was not at my best for blogging, instead engaged in watching tv reports about the monstrous attack in Las Vegas. A dark, depressing day, everywhere, surely.

    So if output was not scintillating ( mostly posts previously scheduled and little fresh work done) my apologies.



    Today, I’m resorting to local news, which may serve to brighten you up – or appal you, not sure which –  all about the alleged plight of ‘many women in their 40s of 50s who are still virgins and unmarried..’ 


    Indonesian women are famously ( though not invariably!) beautiful, and it strikes me as improbable that many of them reach early middle-age unwed if they don’t want to do so.

    However, the Jakarta Post article concerns a new app, or ‘ep‘ as they pronounce it here, promoting polygamy!



    Its creator, a guy named Lindu Cipta Pranayama, described his motivation and target audience.

    “Can you image being in your 40s or 50s but never been touched by a man?” added the 35-year-old, who created the app after failing to find a wife on several dating sites.

    Well, I can imagine that, never having wanted to be ‘touched by a man!’

    But what’s Lindu’s problem? Men don’t need ‘dating sites’ in Jakarta. Just take a walk round the many malls, or even board a bus – never difficult to get chatting to some pleasant lady!

    And I  can’t imagine why all these poor women would have such a problem either. There are plenty of places they can meet chaps.

    I don’t mean the dodgy bars – lots of high-class hotels have ‘ladies’ nights…’

    …and there are all kinds of clubs, societies etc. they can join to meet the like-minded.

    Age is hardly relevant – I have a friend ( not a girl-friend) who calls herself ‘an old lady’ and claims to be be 50, and she is drop-dead gorgeous. Unless there’s something very amiss, Indonesian ladies into their 6th decade can be delightful to behold.

    But why on earth would they contemplate polygamy?

    There has been ‘controversy’ over Lindu’s brain-child, Ayo Poligami, loosely translated as “let’s go polygamy…”… a free smartphone app that matches married and single Muslim men with women who want to create “big families.”

    Not ‘controversy,’ alas, about the iniquitously discriminatory way the multiple spouse law is applied.

    Men who apply to one of the country’s Islamic courts, which have jurisdiction over marriage, are able to take a second wife under certain circumstances.

    So women are second-class citizens – no right for them to take a second husband, in ANY circumstances!


    To be fair to Indonesia, the report does state that Indonesian law defines marriage as between a man and a woman…


    As should all countries!

    but…an important but…polygamy is tolerated in certain circumstances, despite being generally frowned upon.

    Good that the sexist practice is frowned on, but a shame it’s not outlawed…


    Gambar terkait


    …or, if hornies of one sex are catered for, the same approval is not afforded to over-sexed gals.

    Women’s rights protests are being heard, but far too narrowly focused, in my view. Adriana Venny Aryani, speaking for the National Commission on Violence Against Women, claims that –

    “When the husband is practicing polygamy, women are emotionally abused, economically (abused), and sometimes violently.”

    No doubt.

    But Adrianna has been politically active, in former President SBY’s party. Some might argue that modern-minded citizens of both sexes (please note, I avoid that silly word ‘gender,’ which is better deployed in grammar tomes) should be more usefully involved in getting rid of the entire archaic practice.

    Unlikely, in view of the powerful politicians who themselves indulge in polygamous marriage!

    We looked at this before, part of our post on Malaysia Truly Arabia – Doubly Discriminatory?  being devoted to the related issues in Indonesia.

    Arianna and her colleagues need to square up to such people.

    Wow! REAL ‘Marriage Equality!’ Congratulations, TUNISIA! 

    Tunisia has overturned a law that banned women from marrying non-Muslims.

    A spokeswoman for President Beji Caid Essebsi made the announcement and congratulated women on gaining “the freedom to choose one’s spouse…”


    Gambar terkait


    It sets apart Tunisia as the first country in the Middle East and North Africa to remove the legal hurdles to marrying outside the official state religion. 

    .   http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-41278610

    Since I have offered harsh criticism of Tunisia recently…

    Tunisia Obstructing Defence Of Europe? Fish Off! 

    …it’s only fair that I now offer congratulations on this splendid news coming out of the North African country.

    Not only is this a major step out of the Dark Ages for women, but also for men, who hitherto could legally be coerced into apostasy to wed the girl they love!



    Until now, a non-Muslim man who wished to marry a Tunisian Muslim woman had to convert to Islam and submit a certificate of his conversion as proof.



    Any religion should of course be free to excommunicate congregants who defy its rules.

    But at the same time, no religion should be exalted to a position of secular power, outrageously enabled to call in the state to enforce sectarian dogma.

    We have seen that problem here in Indonesia.

    Cops – “Islamist ‘Scholars’ Can Veto Religious Liberty” 

    That’s why it’s important to distinguish, when we oppose absurd ideas about allowing men to ‘marry’ men, we do so not on the basis of somebody’s theology, but on the simple, glaringly obvious, fact that ‘gay’ marriage flies in the face of nature.

    Tunisia has got a clearer understanding of the concept.   Real ‘marriage equality’ means that any female adult not already married should be free to marry any male adult not already married…


    .The country banned polygamy as far back as 1956, setting it apart from other Muslim-majority nations.


    …excluding incestuous relationships, of course, since, like homosexual relationships, they are aberrant.

    But Tunisia has a long way to go.



    …women in Tunisia still face discrimination, particularly in matters of inheritance which still prioritises sons over daughters.

    Funny, though, that the UN Human Rights Council has not been seen or heard making moves against the many backward nations that maintain such grotesque sexist discriminatory laws.

    Sorry, Barnaby Joyce – Appeasement Is No Argument! 

    A narrow defeat for common sense in Australia, where federal conference of the National Party voted by 55-51 not to support a burqa ban.



    Although George Christensen MP pointed out the obvious security risks of allowing head-shrouded undesirables to roam about ‘in government buildings and other public spaces,

    It seems the delegates in Canberra preferred to follow their party leader, Barnaby Joyce, whom, in the past, I have defended, when he was insulted by that hideous ABC leftist Triola…

    Just Asking- Does Red Vixen Trioli Yet Leech Off ABC’s Public Purse? 

    Virginia Trioli 


    …but henceforth I may be reluctant to take up bloggy cudgels on his behalf.

    I quote the Deputy Prime Minister’s deeply principled ‘hands-off-the-bag-heads’ argument.



    Barnaby Joyce says banning the burka could damage Australia’s trade relations with Islamic countries, including Saudi Arabia And Indonesia..


    I’m tempted to observe that it’s a bit offensive to bracket Indonesia  (where I’ve lived happily for nearly two decades, and where perhaps 1 or 2% of women wear the revolting head-gear) with an absolute sectarian monarchy where women are such second-class citizens that, last I heard, they’re not allowed to drive a car!

    So Saudi Women CAN Look Like Women!?! 

    But let’s move on.

    Since when do Australians tailor their domestic laws and customs to keep in with foreign countries?

    If Joyce had come out openly saying he thinks that shariah sexism is just jim-dandy…



    …I’d be disgusted, but somehow muster a modicum of respect for his candour.

    But he doesn’t say that. He’s quoted in another newspaper as opposing a ban ‘despite disliking the burqa.’

    So for Barnaby it’s not about security or about rescuing women from a barbaric dress-code, but merely a matter of dollars and cents?

    One is obliged to ask just how low Australia’s Deputy PM is prepared to sink to appease Saudi Arabia.

    Please note the Saudis have a bad record of arrogant intrusion into the internal affairs of more civilised countries.



    Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries accused Norway of doing too little to protect its Muslim minority, with Saudi Arabia calling for all criticism of religions or their prophets to be made illegal.

    What next, Barnaby?


    • Keith Milner 11:33 am on September 10, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      You got it right. We should ban the head-bag.
      If they want to wear it indoors, it’s up to them, but not outdoors where it’s an insult to every Australian principle.
      The same security principle should be used to prohibit Antifa masks too.

      Before this Barnaby Joyce was a sensible man, I always thought, but now I am having a re-think.
      I feel sorry for those women in Arabia but I don’t see how we can do anything for them.
      So why should Australia worry what they think about our country?

      Unless he’s saying both countries allow women a free choice on burka-wearing?

    Guardian Hands Europhiliac Ex-Con A Megaphone! 

    Denis McShane is a despicable man.

    I don’t say that because he writes for the Guardian, nor even for the rot he included in his most recent scribblings in that far-left newspaper.

    Three reasons remainers should stop calling for a second referendum on Brexit


    Nor do I say that because he was sentenced to prison under the Theft Act…


    Hasil gambar untuk denis macshane


    …though I do wonder why he only served six weeks of a six month sentence.

    McShane is despicable because he was the Labour MP for Rotherham, who, after the grooming gang scandal broke, admitted that he had been aware of what he saw as the problems of cousin marriage and the oppression of women within parts of the Muslim community in Britain, but:



    “Perhaps yes, as a true Guardian reader, and liberal leftie, I suppose I didn’t want to raise that too hard. I think there was a culture of not wanting to rock the multicultural community boat if I may put it like that.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/law-and-order/11063885/Rotherham-and-the-toxic-legacy-of-multiculturalism.html


    Rotherham’s Rats Rousted Out – But the Root of the Matter?


    The author of that Telegraph article suggested that some might think it an attempt at a self-deprecating joke, and not a particularly funny one. MacShane was never a funny man and since he was detained at Her Majesty’s pleasure he has found even less to laugh about.


    But this callous indifference, ideologically driven,  towards his constituents in Rotherham then…


    Hasil gambar untuk primitives


    …towards iniquities suffered by women whom he was elected to Westminster to represent, comes shining through in his Guardian article last week, urging that the people’s decision be overturned, that at some stage the House of Commons can move away from the current veneration of a referendum result…=

    BTW, does the Guardian not have enough Remoaners without criminal records, that it has to dredge the swamp and bring in this sleazy specimen?




    It’s surely curious that when you tap on his name as their scribbler, they make no mention of his disgrace and imprisonment.

    All you learn of him is this –

     Denis MacShane is the former minister for Europe and author of Brexit, No Exit: Why (in the End) Britain Won’t Leave Europe

    Is he a big pal of the Guardian editor? McShane’s article is misleadingly headlined!

    For he is NOT arguing against a second referendum, but rather that it not be now, for fear, he admits, that an early second referendum without proper planning and preparation could end up with the worst of all worlds for the anti-isolationist camp – namely, a confirmation of the June 2016 result. 

    The rest of his article is near unreadable, but the link is somewhere near the top of my page, if you are consumed with political masochism today.

    Bloody Belgians! But Did UK Also Back Shariah Sexist Saudis? 

    Norway’s opposition parties have asked in parliament that the government confirm whether it voted for Saudi Arabia’s inclusion in a UN women’s rights commission.  https://www.thelocal.no/20170426/norway-opposition-demands-answer-over-saudi-arabia

    Good to see two parties are demanding answers.


    Hasil gambar untuk women's rights sharia


    No civilised government should have had anything to do with giving a role on any body concerned with women’s well-being to Saudi Arabia or any regime that adheres to shariah law.




    Shariah- A Living Hell!


    But whilst the answer to those parties’ questions is important in itself, it will  – or should – have a ripple effect, hopefully replicated in every Western nation, because, as UN Watch says, at least five EU states must have voted for the Saudis to serve a four-year term on the commission in the secret ballot.

    And now one such craven creep country has been unmasked, Belgium!

    Belgium “sorry” it helped elect Saudi Arabia to UN women’s rights

    You’d think with so many undesirable aliens infesting their own capital city…



    ….that the Belgian Government would understand the need to oppose shariah iniquity at every opportunity.

    Not so! And decent citizens of most every party and of all creeds there are up in arms.

    Any European regime endorsing sexist shariah should be named, shamed and sanctioned! It’s akin to civilisational treason.

    Remember, almost exactly three years ago, these damnable Dark Agerss were trying to extend their intolerance into Europe!

    Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries accused Norway of doing too little to protect its Muslim minority, with Saudi Arabia calling for all criticism of religions or their prophets to be made illegal.

    It’s crazy.

    The governments of Hungary and Poland are undergoing scrutiny and the threat of sanctions merely for how they run their own countries. Heavier censures by far are surely merited on those giving aid and comfort to the backward brutes in Riyadh?

    As UN Watch’s Administrative Director, Hillel Neuer, has pointed out, every woman in Saudi must have a male guardian who makes all critical decisions on her behalf, controlling a woman’s life from her birth until death.

    What ignorant savages!

    So are MPs in the parliaments of France, Sweden, Norway, and the UK now out to ascertain the guilt or innocence of their governments in this scandal?

    We heard Mrs. May some months back expressing her high opinion of shariah.



    So it would not surprise me in the least if she had authorised her UN minions to stab decency in the back.

    Unfortunately, all the MPs in the UK are no longer in a position to serve their constituents. With an election called, they cease to be MPs until they’re re-elected.

    So with May determined to avoid proper debates – Theresa May rules out participating in TV debates before election – it’ll be up to the media to cross-examine her, or her Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson.



    If they admit to the betrayal of civilised values, they should be told to resign by the parliament due to be elected in June.

    So if we face a ‘night-life’ devised on its tenets, then there’s no reason not to expect extensions of shariah into every other walk of city life.

    Women should make the most of Kartini Day tomorrow.

    Because we know how proponents of shariah think of women, not least the views of the self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front,’ the FPI, whose favour the new ”moderate’ governor curried sedulously during his campaign.

    Hypocrisy! Boycott Vacuous Branson’s Virgin Products 

    Time to renew the call for Brits to boycott that renegade plutocrat Branson’s commercial empire, after the toe-rag’s latest tirade. He reckons the American people’s choice of President has ‘damaged the American psyche.’



    Seems one of Branson’s bete noire’s about Trump is concerns “women’s rights!


    Good grief!

    Branson’s double standards should especially  provoke the wrath of women.

    Remember this story?

    Sir Richard Branson has announced a Virgin-wide boycott of a Brunei-owned hotel chain, over the country’s new anti-gay law. 

    Branson has now added his voice to the calls, announcing a Virgin-wide boycott of the luxury hotel chain, which will take effect across his business empire. 

    He said: “No Virgin employee, nor our family, will stay at Dorchester Hotels until the Sultan abides by basic human rights.”

    Richard Branson announces Virgin boycott of Brunei-owned hotels



    Few of us would disagree that stoning homos to death is a disproportionate expression of the distaste normal people feel for their behaviour.

    But he appears to have voiced no equivalent horror at other similarly iniquitous aspects of shariah law, notably its inherent discrimination against women.

    The stuff about shrouding their pretty tresses, while men can go about bare-headed, of course.

    Dark Age law applies in the United Arab Emirates, as a story from last year reminds us.  

    Sharia law used in the United Arab Emirates to jail Australian woman after she was gang-raped


    None of these benighted prohibitions – each of which overtly targets women – appears to excite the same anger in Branson’s soul (despite being directed at half the world’s population) 

    Branson has announced no similar steps against this classy joint in London’s Knightsbridge.


     London’s Lanesborough Hotel


    Yet the Lanesborough is reportedly owned by the UAE Government.


    And I’d hazard a guess there are other luxurious facilities around the world owned by primitive but oil-rich Arab regimes.

    No Branson boycott?

    Let’s boycott him!

    This is the same nutter who stabbed Britain in the back during the Brexit campaign, of course from  a safe distance, posh tax-exile in a sunny clime…


    Estimated to be worth £3.4 bn, he loves to leech off tax-payers. Even among the Guardian’s journo-pack, there are people appalled by the sort of business he conducts.

    … the Virgin boss liked to move into industries sheltered from too much competition, pull subsidies out of taxpayers and then cash out.   https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/jun/10/truth-richard-branson-virgin-rail-profits


    Further insights into his commitment to his/our country –

    Sir Richard Branson admitted yesterday he had been a tax exile for seven years but denied the move had been influenced by money…



    Who would SUGGEST such a thing!


    …and the same nutter, who, oblivious to the enormous economic burden, next year alone..

     roughly €10billion ($ 11.3 billion) in extra spending for  migration-related costs.  Oh, No, Mama’s Boy – The WORST Is Yet to Come!  –  

    …which Mama Stasi Merkel slung round Germany’s neck, has now cheerily told the Germans that, the rape-refugee plague notwithstanding, her ‘green-light to gate-crashers’ policy is just what they need.

    “In five years, Germany will see the great benefits of its actions.”


    The man’s a menace, and with many airlines besides Virgin to choose from, and alternative rail services to use besides Virgin train, Brits, and Germans, and everyone who despises this creep…


    ….should be using those alternatives instead of contributing a single sou to the swine’s already swollen coffers.

      I read your post about lego, and I agree it should be boycotted. And I will not be using Branson’s services again.
      That’s what’s good about your blog, you don’t only tell us what’s wrong but you give us at least a practical idea or two as to how we can contribute positively.
      Please carry on with your work and helping us fight these big business enemies within.
