In patriarchal societies, women are a valuable merchandise (maybe the most valuable). They are raised by a family in order to be sold to another. And if a woman breaks this deal by falling in love with a man (or woman) and going with this person, she cancels an important contract between families the society is based upon. It is like cheating in business. In this case, the broken merchandise should be destroyed. That means the woman should be killed. And this happens more often than we think. And very important, it is not about Islam or another related religion, it is about patriarchy. Religion was created in order to support patriarchy, not the other way around. Hinduism, a very old and polytheistic religion, supports it.
Andrea Dworkin, in “Woman hating”, treats the subject of necrophilia as an important trait of patriarchal sexual phantasies. Vivid women are not sexy, they are annoying, boring, stressful. A woman should shut up and listen or shut up and become a sexual object. Dworkin makes an analysis of some fairy tales and comes to the conclusion that dead women are the sexiest in patriarchal male imagery. Snow white is the main example. Because dead women don’t talk, don’t oppose horrible sexual practices, they just don’t move and are quite. Submissive small, weak Asian women are very well represented in pornography and not only.
The new industry of BDSM satisfy male necrophilia. See this women transforming into a sexy corpse. There are men who get excited by accidents, natural disasters, wars, torture. This is patriarchal necrophilia. And it is not about some pathological cases, but normal men we can encounter on the street. Orhan Pamuk, in “Istabul: Memories and the City” talks in a very neutral manner about the pleasure of watching arsons among young people, especially males, reading about torture methods and disasters. Men like destruction and death in patriarchy. Men like dead, inactive, inert, catatonic women. But why would a woman enjoy such things? An accurate study would provide an answer.
