When you live in a pseudo-civilized society, it’s easy to decry cultures that do things a little differently. Of course, in America’s politically-correct climate, it is verboten to label other cultures as “barbaric.”
In this case, I think we can make an exception.
An Indonesian woman has drowned her nine-year-old son in the bath, claiming she was worried that his “small penis” would affect his prospects for the future.
The 38-year-old woman from Jakarta told police her son had had a small penis prior to being circumcised, but that it appeared to shrink further after the operation, police spokesman Rikwanto told AFP.
“She told police investigators that she killed him as he would have a bleak future with his small penis,” Rikwanto said. (H/T – Robert B.)
Whew, thank God I wasn’t born in Indonesia! I’d be at the bottom of the Indian Ocean by now.
