And I’m Done With Humanity for the Week

I found this via the Friendly Atheist and I wish I hadn’t: the parents of a 16 year old girl poured hot oil on her because she didn’t want to get married. I wish to hell I could say that this was bullshit or that I was making it up but I can’t.

From the article:

“This young lady, at various times over that time period was subjected to some pretty bad abuse because she didn’t want to be married to this person,” Salazar said. “Several times it was reported to us that this young lady was abused with hot cooking oil being thrown on her body. She was beat with broomsticks. At least at one point, she was choked almost to the point of unconsciousness.”

Now, why would her parents want to force her into an arranged marriage? Easy. They’d be $20,000 richer. That dull thudding you’re hearing? It’s just me, slamming my head against the nearest wall because HOLY FUCK.

It seems that the groom may also be facing charges, along with the parents. I truly hope so. As for right now, I’m going to binge some cat videos, because my brain is literally full of fuck right now.

Here’s one on the house. Y’all might need it:

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We miss him every day.
