Egypt's "Women of ILL Repute"

During all the hoopla over Egypt's "Arab Spring," over a dozen women protesters, were detained, beaten given "virginity tests."

The Washington Post (WaPo) has the story:

It's not like they were walking around "Like an Egyptian" as the Bangles did in their heyday, but that doesn't matter to the interim ruling council:  Unescorted females are verbotten.

Comrade Karla comments:

Don't worry. I'm sure their motives are strictly secular.

Actually, with the growing influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, we're concerned the "Facebook Revolutionaries" will be trading one form of tyranny for another.
