Heartbreaking!!!!!!!!!!!!
To make a greater contribution in human rights causes, particularly in sex slavery and human trafficking, consider joining this Care2 group: Slavery Today
Slavery Today, a human rights group in Care2 and Facebook

. . . I had to delete my first couple of comments, I'd've probably been banned from Care2 forever.




And am I the only one who's getting really annoyed at those f***ing testosterone ads here on Care2?

Men don't change, do they? In Medieval times virgins were thought to "cure" syphilis. Women are always to be used for something
I guess it's as good an excuse as any, huh?

Well I must admit the 'forced marriage' is a new twist on a problem that is at least in its second decade. The Virgin Cure Insanity seems to have originated in 16th Century Europe, resurfaced in 19th Century England and now again in Africa, particularly in former English colonies. As early as 2001-2002 South African experts were estimating 60 child and infant rapes per day, many as an HIV/AIDS Virgin Cures. The experts did admit the number as an estimate as they estimate that only 1 in 35 rapes were reported. And I am sure, not, that the desperation caused by the spread of HIV/AIDS knowingly encouraged by the International Gag Rule on condoms and the infinite and infallible wisdom of the Roman Catholic Church banning condoms under all circumstances had nothing what so ever to do with with these atrocities.
