I saw a report about this story and I want to tell you about it to make you think about what happens especially to women on this planet and to state that Human Rights should always take precedence over multi-culturalism.

Maha from Lebanon lives in Germany, but when she chose the "wrong" fiancee, her father set fire to her and said this would make her so ugly, that a man would not look at her again.

Her relatives told her she should apologise to her father.

Her skin looks like crags now up to her lower lip.
Her fiancee left her, but nowadays she is married to a former school-friend and overjoyed at having been able to have a baby.
She says she always takes extra care to keep an eye out for her baby, because she is afraid her relatives might harm her child.

So it only happens because of men? I happen to know of a few women that killed their kids whether by drowning or baking them in the oven...

Baking them in the oven????!!!!! :eek:

I'd say this particular culture (or cultures) desperately needs to change or just disappear altogether, no offense.

Yes this kind of horror even happens here, in the US. Mothers drowning their children cause they think that they'd be better off dead. Mothers throwing their new born infants into garbage cans. Mothers cooking their child in the oven cause the dog told them to do it!!!! This crud goes on in every culture........ unfortunelty!! :mad: It's really tragic!!

I think it is wonderful that she was able to find someone who looked beyond her facial scars, & could see her real beauty. I hope she can stay safe.

Most of the events that Draco mentioned were committed by mentally ill persons; what happened to this young woman is condoned by a lot of cultures. I see a big difference.

What on earth are you talking about, Draco? What could be understandable in any culture about putting a child in an oven?

Draco

What could be understandable about cannibalism, rape, molestation, murder, or abortion?

Society condemns many things, whether they be condemned by religion or a law, but that does not mean people don't consider them acceptable behavior...

On the world stage, what we view as moral and acceptable behavior is the minority. We haven't even been able to purge our own society of things we don't find acceptable, yet we expect other societies to 'see the light'...

I would say that the only difference between us and them is that we are making an effort to change...

In answer to your points: nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, everything.

If society condemns something, then doesn't that mean that most people do not find it acceptable? The law is often way behind society.

I see a big difference between a society that protects women and children, and one that says it's ok to maim or murder them.

Now wait a sec, abortion is somehow lesser that any of the former?

sorry to but in, but i just wanna say in my opinion abortion is not acceptable under any circumstances, i feel strongly on this, its murder! if you aint prepared to get pregnant, you shouldnt be having sex, simple as.
