Move over, virgin brides.

‘Cause you’re guaranteed full submission with these lovely ladies. This is some seriously creepy shit.
It’s terrifying when a patriarchal tradition not only extends into the afterlife, but when women are slaughtered in order to respect it. Two Chinese women were killed by three men and were then sold (their corpses, that is) as “ghost brides.�
The most heinous part of this story is that the men had only decided to kill the women when they realized “that the women would be worth much more dead than alive.�
