This video explains why I detest the Grand Old Party of family values. I guess character is only to be had when sitting on a high horse. What really angers me is how the media takes whatever McCain and his campaign gives them and refusal to challenge him and his campaign. What's really sad the fact that most people watch the news and walk away misinformed or with half ass information.
Big is often regarded
as beautiful in Mauritania, but the controversial act of force-feeding is still
practiced in some parts of the country.
In the West African country of Mauritania, women and girls
are forced fed to become fat in preparation for marriage. Obesity is considered beautiful and obtained
at all costs. Adult woman that are not big
enough are resorting to dangerous drugs to gain weight rapidly. These morbidly obese women suffer from
dangerous and sometimes deadly health ailments. Despite government warnings families continues to fatten up their daughters
for marriage and women continue to take dangerous drugs.
Many Mauritanians deny the practice of force feeding because of the world's negative view of it however, it still occurs in large numbers. Girls as young as seven are suffer this abuse.
