Does Russia Force Underage Girls to Take Virginity Tests? Western Media Says “Yes”, Reality Says “Nope”

This is much like the story on alleged gay concentration camps run by Kadyrov in Chechnya. It’s 100 percent pure unadulterated unalloyed bullshit. Nothing more need be said on the matter… read it and see how stupid Western liberals are. They really believe this shit.

Did you know that Russian doctors are required by law to check the “integrity” of each and every young Russian hymen, and then report any signs of sexual activity to the police? We didn’t know either! Until of course, we read this brave report published by the Independent:

Doctors in Russia have reportedly been instructed to perform virginity tests on underage girls. […] Health Minister Vladimir Shuldyakov said doctors must follow the order and “inform police about all cases when virginity was lost as well as about cases of pregnancies and abortions involving girls under 16-years-old”. The order instructs doctors to check the “integrity of the hymen” and look for signs of damage.

Where to begin? Well, for starters… Russia’s Health Minister is V I Skvortsova. This Vladimir guy is the health minister of Saratov Oblast, which is sort of like being the head health honcho of Tumbleweed NE. Amazingly, even the garbage Daily Mail article cited by the Independent managed to correctly identify Shuldyakov as the Health Minister of a small region of Russia. However, the Independent simply refers to him as “Health Minister Vladimir Shuldyakov”; Saratov isn’t even mentioned in the Independent’s report. Also, Shuldyakov cancelled his order three days before the Independent published its hymen horror story:

Minister of Health of the Saratov Oblast Vladimir Shuldyakov cancelled his order, according to which doctors were obliged to inform the police about cases of deprivation of virginity and pregnancy of schoolgirls, the head of the press service of the regional Ministry of Health, Aleksandr Kolokolov, told RIA Novosti.

Will the Independent correct its story? Or, at least “update” it? Of course not. Friends… we’re reaching levels of bullshit that’d make William Randolph Hearst blush. He’s the creep who invented the modern “save the young girls from the savages!” tabloid story. So just to recap, the Independent:

  1. Portrayed a provincial official as Russia’s top health official
  2. Reported on an “order” that was cancelled three days prior

What we enjoy most about this hilariously 100 percent false story is that the Independent cited a tabloid… and then somehow managed to make the story even more wrong. Say what you will, but that requires “skill sets”.

17 January 2012. I SUPPORT the Wikipedia “Blackout” on Wednesday

______________________________

Read this.

Let’s be frank… this isn’t about “protecting” people; it’s an attempt to “put the genie back in the bottle”. The internet opened up communications media to people of moderate means. This isn’t palatable to the media Pooh-Bahs, both in the larger corporate media and in informational outlets of this-or-that corporation or public entity. A case in point is the OCA… for years, the First Families had their hands around the throats of the believers as they controlled the information flow through Lyonyo Kishkovsky’s control of the house organ, The Orthodox Church. Today, people have abandoned the official PR sites, as they’re uninformative, disingenuous, and full of fluff. They’re looking for the truth, and they’re not finding it in the official outlets, so, they look elsewhere. This is happening in all sectors of life, not merely the Church. To put it mildly, the powers-that-be do NOT like this situation, and they wish to end it as soon as possible. Censorship is the true end of SOPA/PIPA, and you forget that at your peril.

By the way, 18 January isn’t just a date “picked out of thin air”. American universities begin their Spring Term on 18 January. If Wikipedia is blacked out on that day, it’ll cause tremors. To put it mildly, the Republican sponsors of the censorship bill (they are, after all, the same sorts who gave us such pleasantries as humiliating public searches by the TSA and two hellishly-expensive colonial wars in foreign parts) are going to get a wakeup call. Indeed, they’ll regret this when the election rolls around in November. This is “Nineteen Eighty-Four” marching into our homes in Size 12 steel-toed boots… these are the same sorts who blubber about “class warfare” and “lazy welfare niggers”. Mark it, remember it, and ACT upon it… that’s the ticket.

By the way, SOPA/PIPA wouldn’t affect me overly much, as much of what’s on this site is either original translations into English or my own work, both of which are outside the purview of these Gestapo bills. Yet, I can see how the unscrupulous would use them, and I stand up to say NO!

So should you…
