Zimbabwe’s latest way to stop HIV: Force women to have fewer baths and shave off their hair to make them less attractive

By Stewart Maclean

A Zimbabwean politician has said women should be forced to bath less and shave off their hair to make them less attractive to men and help curb the spread of HIV.

Senator Morgan Femai reportedly told a conference he believed the killer disease had spread because men found it difficult to resist attractive and well-dressed women.

The politician added that new laws should be drawn up compelling women to make themselves less attractive to save men from themselves, according to a report on the New Zimbabwe website.

Addressing a parliamentary workshop on HIV awareness, Senator Femai compared his plan to certain Christian sects whose women he said also sometimes had clean-shaven heads.

He said: ‘What I propose is that the government should come up with a law that compels women to have their heads clean-shaven like what the Apostolic sects do.

‘They should also not bath because that is what has caused all these problems.’

    Nomba,

    Given a choice between reading a comment from someone in Chinese or some pin-head who doesn’t know how to turn his CAPS LOCK button off (hint – it lights up green, genius), I’d choose the former.

    I think our brother has missed this one, the best thing is to sensitize all the people including men on how to protect themselves from contracting HIV/AIDS teach them safe measures and an safe practices, avoid stigmatize those who are positive and encourage people to go for a vct and the use of arvs. Avoiding baths and a hair cut is not the solution cos sex is in the mind even our brothers and sisters who wear robs from the head to toes have failed to control their sexual feelings hence the most populated in the whole world.

    the women are not the once causing a faster spread of HIV but the men that cnt control there eyes from looking at them

    JACK, I HOPE YOUR WRITING IS NOT MEANT FOR ZAMBIANS TO READ OR YOU ARE TRYING TO INSULT US. YOU CAN NOT WRITE IN A LANGUAGE WE DO NOT READ, OUR IS ENGLISH, BUT WE ARE NOT ENGLISH PEOPLE, BUT WE WANT TO COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY WITH THE REST. CAN WE ASK THE WEBSITE OWNERS TO RESTRAIN JACK NEXT TIME, BEFORE PEOPLE RESORT TO CANNIBALIZE HIM/HER.

    FEMAI IS RIGHT IN HIS OWN WAY, AFTER ALL THAT WAS JUST A SUGGESTION TO THE SOLUTIONS POSSIBLE. HOWEVER,THAT IS DANGEROUS THINKING BY FEMAI. SHOULD WE SAY ZIMBABWEAN WOMEN ARE VERY PRETTY IN THEIR HAIR? FOR ME I THINK IT IS BETTER TO HAVE PRETTY WOMEN ALL OVER BECAUSE THE DESIRES WOULD BE NEUTRALIZED FOR THEY WILL ALL APPEAR THE SAME.

    But Zimbabwean men have amai ninis all over the place. Who is spreading HIV then? Maybe Zimbos should do like Arabs and force their women to put on dark veils covering all the bodies with a narrow slat for seeing through. That way nobody would look at the women. My suggestion is that Zimbos should become moslems.
