The cultural hubris of the welfare mafia
because there wasn't a damn bit of truth to it.
I'm talking about the ridiculous pretension that the United States of America has any sort of standard for 'under age' sex (or that anyone cares about polygamy.)
The 'child protective services' culture in this country presides over the most perverse, permissive culture of sexualized young children ever seen in Western Civilization, if it can still be called civilization. Indeed, the welfare mafia and its associated government enforcers make young motherhood a valid career choice for scared young girls -- so long as those girls DO NOT GET MARRIED.
If the girls do not get married, and remain the never-married mothers of out-of-wedlock offspring, they are offered all sorts of perks -- a free apartment, free food, medical care, spending money and FINALLY free education. There are a host of ridiculous programs out there that cater to the legion of unmarried knocked up girls -- Mentor Mothers comes to mind. This is a silly ass group that, among other things, has a prom for its moms. Oh I feel all warm and fuzzy. It is all up for grabs for any freaking 12-year-old who screws around and gets pregnant.
The problem doesn't appear to be about young girls having sex and becoming mothers. That's great! The problem isn't about polygamy. No one much cares about polygamists. After all, very few people today are monogamists.
No, the problem is about MARRIAGE. Young girls having sex is a-okay. Young girls having children is a-okay. Young girls getting married -- now we just can't have that.
