Taslima Nasreen on the 72 virgins thing

Okay this is old news, but I just discovered, and retweeted, a tweet by Taslima on the “Muslim men get 72 virgins in heaven” thing: “Muslim women deserve to have sex with 72 virgin men on the earth as they won’t get these things in heaven. #compensation” That is awesome. Makes me feel so much more forgiving about her posts on prostitution.
