    You couldn't. As a foreigner they would tell you to butt out, its their culture not yours.
    Many of my friends cannot believe the things I can say to my husband or the things he 'allows' me. My daughter was 4 when she came home with a book about the mouse marrying the Sun in a sort of arranged marriage. I was so angry, went to the headmaster and demanded explanation why a International school would have THIS book in the library. Kids are still making fun of my overreacting.


    I cannot compare rape between South east Asia and other places but I just remembered seeing this a couple of weeks ago in the newspaper. So the rapists just followed the advise of the politician. Beyond words.
    Women who have sex outside marriage, even raped, should hang, 'forgive' rapists: Indian politicians

    In an election speech, Mulayam Singh Yadav, head of the Socialist Party in Uttar Pradesh, said boys ‘make mistakes.’

    I know. It's sad because I would only be speaking up to show I care. I mean, isn't that what we are suppose to do?


    Kids are still making fun of my overreacting. <--- It's not the kids that needs to comprehend but the adults. Kids follow their example.
