8 Year Old Yemeni Girl Gets A Divorce

In a case which will no doubt make you sick to your stomach, an 8 year old Yemeni girl has been granted a divorce from her 28 year old husband:

Nojud was a second grader in primary school when the marriage took place two and a half months ago.

“They asked me to sign the marriage contract and remain in my father’s house until I was 18.

“But a week after signing, my father and my mother forced me to go live with him.”

Nojud’s father, Mohammad Ali Al-Ahdal, said he had felt obliged to marry off his daughter, an act he said she consented to.

In response to a question from Judge Mohammed al-Qadhi, he acknowledged that the “marriage was consummated, but I did not beat her”.

You may want to keep this article handy to give to the next person that tells you that our culture is no better than any other culture, and that we are all the same.

I find it hard to believe that any human in the world would think that there is nothing wrong with having sex with an 8 year old girl. You can’t hide behind religion on this one, you can’t possibly exonerate yourself through the guise of what you would deem *cultural norms*. I mean, there has to be something in the back of your mind that says what you’re doing is horrific.

If there is a culture that believes having sex with little girls is okay, and blessed by whatever God they pray to, then it is our duty as global citizens to annihilate that culture. I don’t care if you’re from Yemen or Timbuktu or the south side of Mars, if you’re banging a little child, then you must die.

Actually, there are a lot of people in this article that need a bullet to the head. The parents–kill them–the guy that raped this child–kill him–the gov’t of Yemen that sanctions this abomination–kill them all.

There, that was easy.
