Religion and Misogyny in action again. Girls and women as property to be used and abused. I always think of shit like this when ever someone slams modern western culture with the phrase “in non-western cultures”.

We already know that fundamentalist Islam approves and even encourages child marriage. After all, they point out, it’s written in their holy text. They excuse it as part of their “culture”, their “beliefs” and try to say that the girl has a voice in the matter. But I and human rights activists seriously doubt that. An eight-year-old, no matter what culture is not physically and emotionally ready for marriage and sex. All this is is legalized and religion condoned pedophelia.
