The old saw that there would be no war if only women were in charge was proven true today by a story coming out of New Guinea. They’re right. If women were in charge there would be no war. There would only be mass infanticide of every male child.
A shocking report out of Papua New Guinea claims that for the past ten years, the members of the gentler sex in two villages have killed each and every male baby born in order to prevent them from growing up to become warriors and engaging in war.
“Babies grow into men and men turn into warriors,’ said Rona Luke, a village wife … It’s because of the terrible fights that have brought death and destruction to our villages for the past 20 years that all the womenfolk have agreed to have all new-born male babies killed,’ said Mrs Luke.
So congratulations! You stopped the death and destruction from being visited upon your village. You’ve actually just done it yourself. You’ve made modern day Herods of yourselves in order to prevent violence.
And this one:
‘It’s because of the terrible fights that have brought death and destruction to our villages for the past 20 years that all the womenfolk have agreed to have all new-born male babies killed,’ said Mrs Luke.
‘The women have had enough of men engaging in tribal conflicts and bringing misery to them.’
And presumably this little genocide has been misery free, making the act of childbirth a cliffhanger to see if a birth should be celebrated or mourned.
A resident of Agibu village, Mrs Luke said she did not know how many male babies were killed by being smothered, but it had happened to all males over a 10 year period – and she suggested it was still happening.
Choking back tears she added: ‘It’s a terrible, unbearable crime, but the women had to do it.
‘The women have really being forced into it as it’s the only means available to them as women to bring an end to tribal fights.’
OK. Let’s remember. The women are the victims here.
No word yet on how these two villages won’t die off for lack of males. Oh wait. I know. The moment another village which didn’t kill off all their male babies realizes that there are no men to defend the village they’ll come in and take over. And then there will be babies aplenty. Great job ladies! Brilliant!
