A liberal human-rights group urged Indonesia to abolish its practice of performing a virginity test on women who wish to join the military, but government officials insisted that the procedure is an essential tool for keeping naughty women out of the armed forces.
The Indonesian military promptly fired back, claiming the virginity tests were a necessary health check for female recruits. “We need to examine the mentality of these applicants,” an Indonesian military spokesmantold the Guardian. “If they are no longer virgins, if they are naughty, it means their mentality is not good.”
The spokesman continued: “We will continue to carry out the test because to be a military person, the most important thing is your mentality. Physical and intellectual requirements are secondary.”
No wonder the far east is progressing on every front while the west and America are stagnant. The far east countries understand that a good economy and a healthy society goes hand in hand with decency and morality.
