Islam Religion Bans Tomboys

In today’s newspaper I read the following: Malaysia’s main body of Islamic clerics has issued an edict banning tomboys in the Muslin-majority country, ruling that girls who act like boys violate the tenets of Islam.

The article further stated that the reasoning behind this edict is that the actions of tomboys are immoral.

While we in the states may think such a ruling is ridiculous, is it really any more absurd that some of the dogma taught in many of our Christian churches?
