    Do you know anything about Somalia? Or life in the most poverty-stricken countries on our planet? You are judging these people by YOUR Western standards.

    And yes, I am a woman. But I also am someone who knows what life is like in those countries.

    No you don't and yes you are.

    I know nothing about those cultures too, but I'm a very open minded person. And every time I see or hear something as "shocking" to our culture as this, I consider I've learned something new about the culture, say "good for them" and move on.

    I can only imagine how shocked would be a person from a different culture, at certain things in ours.

    Don't judge and you won't be judged, as they say. Remember that you think in terms of your society, and they think in terms of theirs. What's normal there, is not normal here and vice versa. If you're shocked just swallow it, the worst thing to do is to show disrespect - wars are started over this!

    BTW, it looks like this topic is going past the line of the forbidden topics on SP, isn't it?

    I don't know if it has gone past the line or not... but surely it is becoming a bit over heated so I am closing the thread. I don't want you to kill yourselves just because of some crazy news
