So when you shoot that little girl, you are telling us something. You are telling us that you feel small, uneducated, worthless, powerless, and that you must keep her smaller, more ignorant, and even more powerless so that your feelings won’t be hurt. You have accomplished nothing to be proud of, so you must make sure that she doesn’t, either.

So sad about the girl. So true about the shithead taliban.

Yeah that's right: they live in exactly the same culture and way of thinking that you do. They weren't brought up that way, weren't taught that that is THE way. No, they were brought up in a nice middle class place with good education, good food and plenty of wireless access. So yes, we shall judge them as if they were our next door neighbors.
For goodness sake. Your argument is a classic symptom of why people talk past each other all the time. Don't give a shit about the basis of another person - or people's - reality.
Sure in our culture it may be as simple and easy as you make it out to be(though doubtful).
But in theirs? Seriously?

Too cute by half.

Huh? In what world is it OK for a bunch of grown men to be so intimidated by a 14 year old girl that they shoot her in the head?

Moral relativism at its worst.

I have an eleven-year-old niece. In three years, she'll be fourteen.

Anyone who kills her that year had better have a damn good reason. I may not support the death penalty, but I believe I could make an exception.

re: #3 cinesimon

Let's get this straight.

If a culture says eat kimchii instead of salsa, I'm good with that.

Wear plaid kilts instead of denim trousers, go on, knock yourself out.

Listen to this music instead of that? Study science this way instead of that? Pray to this god instead of that? It's all good.

Their culture says to shoot little girls in the head for wanting to go to school.

It needs to go. Just because a culture exists doesn't mean it needs to stick around, especially if that culture involves the brutalization of children.
