I found a story on MSNBC yesterday that was horrifying.  It’s about women in Pakistan who have been purposely burned, usually by abusive husbands or jilted lovers, although one was burned by her father when she was a child merely because she had been born a girl.  The women are typically burned using acid.  To get the full impact of the story, you need to view the slideshow.

I can’t tell you how incredibly angry this makes me, both at the perpetrators of this crime and at the culture that allows this to happen.
