Sexy Cora Dead — Anyone To Shed a Few Tears For Her?
"Sexy Cora" Dead: Porn Star Dies After Sixth Breast Operation, Doctors Charged, Say Reports—that was the headline news many of you might have noticed a few weeks ago. Sexy Cora was not always sexy, and not even Cora, she was Carolin Ebert, before she was lost to the world as a human being, only to resurface as an object of sex.
This particular news was about a German porn star who died after undergoing a sixth breast enlargement operation. She was only 23-year-old. This could happen in any of the most developed western countries.
I was born into a Muslim family, and have been aware of the inequalities the women suffer in that community, specially in countries ruled by Koranic edicts. Take for example, in Saudi Arabia women are not allowed to drive cars, walk on the streets without covering themselves head to toe, and they are subjected to be whipped by social police if seen on streets without a male relative.
I have profusely written against those types of social injustices, and called them mockery of religion in the name of a holy book and God. In deed, in my book For Our Daughters I have mostly criticized the Islamic societies for their treatment of women as “chattel,” and subjecting them to all sorts of oppression including “honor killing.”
However, after living in the US for nearly two decades, I am not sure if I can agree that the western world has given women better lives compared to what they have in backward Muslim societies. Every time I pass an adult joint I think of the Coras' who live inhuman lives right under the brightest lights in the freest of societies.
In this country, a word has been coined as “sex industry” as if this is a place where a valuable product is manufactured out of human ingenuity and skill. Who works in those industries? What kind of lives do those people have?Continued on the next page
