So you constantly complain that liberals don`t criticise islam but when they do you don`t recognise it?

5Cats,

Also an 18 year old `video`d himself getting a blowjob` from a 17 year old? I suspect that the videoing (hardly a sign of a committed and loving relationship) and ,what, distributing? may have been the offence.

5Cats,

I think your 70/30 split is probably about right. Maybe even generous. But it`s growing, largely thanks to communication and the internet.

My point was that too often we accept as cultural values what are no more than practices which the dominant group (tribal elders, religious leaders, patriarchs) benefit from and want to keep.

When the Pitcairn Islanders tried the `cultural` argument for systematic child rape it was dismissed. But they had no political or economic clout.

Nah it`s easier to hate on Christian wackos cause you don`t get labled a bigot and they don`t start cutting peoples heads off.... That`s some liberal logic!

Man that is so sad. 11 years-old. That kid has not even lived yet. What a backwards drating religion. All of you that want to rally against a religion, here`s the one. How the hell could you want to marry off a young girl like that?

@LordJim: It can and HAS happened in America, many times.
SOME States have strict age laws: no exceptions.
So a boy who turned 18, while dating a girl (still 17) video`d himself getting a blowjob? Statutory rape = he`s in jail.
(I think it was "corruption of a minor" but same difference, eh?)

[quote]The people who disagree,[/quote]
Are a tiny minority compared to the "hard liners" correct? Of COURSE that varies from location to location, but overall? The MAJORITY of that society believe this is PERFECTLY OK.
If they held a vote in Yemen? It`d pass 70 - 30 at least.

Horrific. The one thing that strikes me as peculiar about the video is the girl`s preternatural maturity. But if you`re faced with parents willing to sell you off to a pedophile, after a close relative already burned herself to death with gasoline when put in a similar situation, I guess that can cause you to grow up in a hurry.

I hope she finds a way out that doesn`t involve suicide. God help her.

Draulya,

The second one. That`s the most offensive.

Partly because I doubt that the first scenario actually happens. Where did you have in mind?

` Her religion (Islam) and her country (Yemen) disagree with OUR Western Values.`

Well, that`s the line from the guys who are running the show. The people who disagree, the campaigners for human rights, free speech, education for girls, are seldom heard from but they exist.

"Unfortunately for her? Her religion (Islam) and her country (Yemen) disagree with OUR Western Values."

In some countries, a 17.9 year old cannot have sex in a loving and committed relationship because it`s statutory rape and her partner will go to jail because, as we are all told "rape is a crime of violence".

In other countries, an 11 year old can get held down and torn open against her will. That`s legal (but AFIAK I think the law requires her to have her first menstruation).

Neither is right. Which offends you more depends on your cultural standpoint.

She`s very cute! Adorable even!
Does that mean she should get married? Hells no!
I think Pugs are adorable too, wouldn`t want to have sex with one though. See?

She`s a child who should be allowed to remain a child for as long as -she- chooses to.

Unfortunately for her? Her religion (Islam) and her country (Yemen) disagree with OUR Western Values.

@Draculya & @pmarren: She`s a chatterbox all right! But I`ve seen girls around her age who can talk non-stop (without breathing!) for minutes at a time!! :-)

Marriage? Without meaningful consent it`s not marriage, it`s child rape.

@draculya, that`s the point... that someone wants to marry the 11-year old... that`s why the outrage and my lack of humour at your `joke`.

@turdburglar, yeah, `cause there`s nothing funnier than child slavery... (yes, that`s sarcasm.)
And believe me, I sure didn`t have to try and be offended... I don`t feel that this is an appropriate topic for making jokes.

It`s alright turdburglar, I don`t come here to be liked!

Like I was saying, OK, she`s cute, I`ll give her that, but can you imagine being MARRIED to that squawkbox? "talaq talaq TALAQ!"

Dayum, there is some Draculya haters here. You guys are sad...trying so hard to be offended. Your effort to be offended by something that has nothing to do with you is offensive.

He was just saying that without the subtitles, she could be talking about anything. Not only is it a legitimate point, it`s also a joke.

Also Gerry, she is in Yemen. Not Pakistan, unless Yemen is in Pakistan or the other way around.

"She`s not fleeing Pakistan?
They will never let her live."

she knows that. she is trying to leave the country but being 11 years old doesn`t do much for her.

"I love the attitude; if you changed the subtitles, she could be one of those out of control slut toddlers on Maury."

the fact that you though this up at all Draculya is mind shattering in its own right...

AJ: i had the same thoughts as you. i had even looked into cross country adoption until i had a sudden realization. chances are she does not know a lick of english just like i cant even begin to GUESS what language she is speaking in this video. the cultural barrier is too great and it may be too had an adjustment for her to come live here in the states. all we can do for her is hope for the best.

Only in America. This is why we deserve the Muslim hatred. We need to match the awesomeness. Only Christians act this way.

We are trusting the translation to be correct.

"Yemen is ranked last of 135 countries in the 2012 Global Gender Gap Report. Human Rights Watch reported on discrimination and violence against women as well as on the abolition of the minimum marriage age of fifteen for women. The onset of puberty (interpreted by some to be as low as the age of nine) was set as a requirement for marriage instead."

So.. a country of pedophiles? The more I learn about that region, the more I`m glad I was born on the other side of the world.

Another video about this girl. I agree 100% with the guy that made it.

This girl is eloquent. She sounds like someone twice her age.

Before the age of viral videos, she would have been just another anonymous victim. Now at least there`s a chance of something more.

Draculya, wow, just.... wow.
To equate this little girl trying to escape slavery with "control slut toddlers on Maury" (or any North American 11-year old, really) is mind-boggling!! Wow.
She`s probably going to be murdered just for making this video unless some adult(s) can keep her safe!!! And you accuse her of `attitude`... didn`t realize trying not to be sold off by your parents to a stranger at the age of eleven constituted `slut type attitude`.
Wow.

When they live in the amazon we think "the noble savage".
So how come we don`t think of muslims in the same way? "Noble Savages" clinging to medieval ways of living. A bronze-age cultural maturity.

Real living history. We should embrace that....really.

She needs to come live at my house. We would be proud to raise her and give her all the opportunities her piece of poo parents wanted to take from her.

She needs to get the hell out of Pakistan or Yemen or wherever she is. Honor killings still occur.
