Yesterday night while I was flipping the pages of a fashion and lifestyle magazine, I happen to read something very weird. 😯
The magazine had published an article about a country called Mauritania in Africa. Something very weird is being practiced there. The females at this place are force fed food to make them obese (Talk about Africa…where there is a shortage of food). The females are made to gain as much as 60 to 100 Kg of weight.
The reason is that it’s a common thought there that bulky females would attract more wealthy suitors and would be able to serve there husbands better. The common notion goes by that if you are extremely hazardously healthy it signifies that you are rich and flourishing! This is so ridiculous. 😡
Girls as young as 14 years of age are being force fed. In fact there is a school run by a lady where the females are made obese. Unwilling girls are made to join that school forcibly by their families. Once the female is in the school and she refuses to eat, she is punished till she gives in. The females in the school just eat, rest a little bit and then again eat, then again rest a little, and then again eat,…and the cycle repeats.
The magazine also said that some section of the males is showing inclination towards slim females owing to influence from the West.
Well, I don’t know what all would be needed other than a mere inclination to stop this stupid practice. Though the article said that the number of force fed females has reduced, but it’s so humiliating and disgusting to think of fattening or thinning females like cattle depending on the preferences of males. 😕
