If this is symbolic of the attitudes being shown to this little girl by her parents(being shamed for being raped), then the best thing for this little girl is that she is NOT raised by these parents. Nor should any other children be. It should be viewed as negligent to allow her back into the care of these people.
This country wasn’t much different in the 50’s. A girl getting pregnant in high school would be the shame of the entire household. Girls getting raped would be ignored or treated as if it was their own fault.
There was basically no significant aid for raped women before the 60s and 70’s.
I do agree that this sucks and the girl may be better off away from their care…but we really don’t have the legs to stand on to act so superior when we just basically walked out of the wilderness ourselves.
Bull shit. When you know something is wrong you stand up against it. It doesn’t matter if you come to the realization two minutes ago or two hundred years ago. [/quote]
Who wrote that we don’t stand against it? There was talk of savages…if that is the case, then American grandparents are savages as well.
I am all for changing that perspective. I am not for the act of superiority as if we are so above an entire culture of people in all aspects.
You act as if it is not possible to stand up for beliefs without belittling a country at the same time.
