4 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I showed this video to a graduate school class I taught last semester entitled Oppression, Diversity, and the Struggle for Human Rights. It framed the dilemma of denying basic rights to an oppressed group, and paved the way for an excellent class discussion later. It is short, amusing, and highly effective. A young heterosexual couple applies for a marriage license, and are subjected to all manner of antiquated and outrageous customs before the clerk will issue a license: first she issues a chastity belt to the bride-to-be. Then she has the woman carried off to be deflowered by City officials. Once it is discovered that the bride is no longer a virgin, the clerk insists that she be stoned to death, and offers a stone to the fiancé so that he may cast the first stone. The moral: not all traditions are worth preserving!
