Last Sunday, Saudi Arabia’s Human Rights Commission (which is a joke) condemned the practice of young girls getting married in the Kingdom. That prompted Saudi Arabia’s most senior cleric, Sheik Abdul-Aziz Al Sheikh (Skyhook), to issue a pronouncement. Sheik Sheikh declared: “It is wrong to say it’s not permitted to marry off girls who are 15 and younger. A female who is 10 or 12 is marriageable and those who think she’s too young are wrong and are being unfair to her.”
You heard right, folks: If you think 10- or 12-year-olds girls are too young to marry, you’re being “unfair” to them.
Closer to home: California. Marcelino de Jesus Martinez (Skyhook) has been arrested for marrying off his 14-year-old daughter to a neighbor, in exchange for 100 cases of beer, several cases of meat, and $16,000. Police learned about the “exchange” when Mr. Martinez– who’s visiting our country without proper documents– asked the authorities to help him get his daughter back…after the groom failed to pay up. (The groom has been arrested, too.)
Finally, the north-left corner of America: Washington State. A three-judge Court of Appeals panel has ruled that state law does not bar teachers from having sex with 18-year-old students –solong as it’s consensual.
So, question:Where are the feminists? Not just here,but all over the world? They appear to have rolled over — uh, sorry for that visual.I mean, they appeared to have… uh, well,they’remissing in action! Where have they gone? Down?
