Uh...he forgot to include that these practices are nothing more than slave tactics to continue raping women and children and to enslaved them with their sick primitive interpretation of what constitutes the "right" way in their so-called religion. Muslims were/are slavers. They haven't NOT cease this behavior...evidence is how they treat women and children and how they continue to encroached, invade and murder innocent people of dark color. Nigeria is predominately muslim.....and so what should ANYONE expect? I am NOT shocked. I've been screaming about this very things for YEARS....to deaf ears mind you cuz if folks are NOT directly affected...why should they care? We are the ones in the bubble...folks! Surrounded by all this evil and negativity...and it's penetrating and seeping into the conscious of what call freedom in this country. No?
I am guess in a way I am lucky cuz I came from a family that worshiped both NOI and Christianity....but! The difference is my father? LOVED me and didn't or refuse to see me as someone's sexual SERVANT. He saw me as a HUMAN BEING with the RIGHTS to my OWN life and destiny-despite the fact that he was a bonafide muslim. Plus there was something specially unique about my daddy and what he saw in me as a child. He was clearly ahead of his time and his thinking. And wouldn't allow anyone including my mom[with her traditional christian angsts] to smear her faith onto me against my will[ooooh I had to go to church and all and also had religious relief shoved down my throat during the summer but it didn't affect me like she wanted..and I also kept my pennies during church sessions and bought candy afterwards..cuz I truly didn't feel what they were trying to put down]. Probably why I am soooooooo non religious in terms of attaching myself to the three main "slave" religions today and don't have the typical daddy issues many women have in this country. Me thinks it started RIGHT THERE. A daughter given her RIGHT to life HER life and allowed to have an opinion early. And although most countries may have removed child-brides from their cultural agenda...there is STILL sexism and genderism ingrained in how women are treated worldwide. Places like Afganstain still sell their daughters to men as young as six years old and Indonesia continues to have child marriages in the primitive idea that it will protect them from AIDS/HIV. Just as some areas in Africa there are men who still believe that having sex with infant babies will cure AIDS. So the beats goes on in this social sickness.
However the writer is correct in the fact that these folks are ancient perverts who REFUSE to see that having SEX with a CHILD is WRONG and twisted and psychopathic. They hold on to these so-called traditions cuz that is ALL they have left to define themselves as "men in power and control." Which what it really means....is that men have no power unless they are raping or selling something "human" be it a child, a woman....or themselves. SICK!!! Which dispels the saying that an educated person is a more informed person....Not! Cuz these folks have accessibility to information that not only says but MODELS that EVERY human being has a RIGHT to their life/ body/destiny-and cuz they know this? They CHOSE to look the other way and keep their pathetic interpretation of what they DEEM is suited for their culture. Sooooo when one looks at it that way....these men are NOTHING more than MONSTER animals clothed in human attire pretending to be civilized. But!
