No. Can't possibly be true!

Because this kind of thing just doesn't happen, here. Yeah. Right. It probably has been happening for eons. Just because you think you are the most religious country in the world, doesn't make you immune from societies woes. Sexual abuse of children knows no boundaries. The reason that we are seeing more about this in the news though has to do with the fact that Saudi Arabia is not the totally and thoroughly closed and confined society it used to be just a few short years ago. Computers and 24-hour-round-the-clock news outlets have changed that.

The game itself certainly has changed, here, though. It was only within the last couple of years that camera cell phones were allowed; they were illegal until 2004 or 2005. Camera phones are proving to be a real bane in the side of this society and culture, aren't they?!? All these "blackmail" cases that we read about in the newspapers everyday speak volumes, if you ask me.

Has anyone ever, for just a skinny second, considered that perhaps if there were less restriction on the mixing of sexes that some of the problems that exist here might not? Just a thought...


  1. Reading things like this makes my head explode.

    Thank you Miss Sabra for blowing the lid off the sandbox. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

  2. Unfortunately, DL, like I said, "Sexual abuse of children knows no boundaries." Here - there - everywhere. Absolutely sickening!!!
