Female genital mutilation (also called female circumcision) should be treated just like child abuse and considered a crime, according to a new report called “Tackling Female Genital Mutilation In The UK.”

The report, which was put together by Equality Now, the Royal Colleges of Midwifery, Nursing, Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the union Unite, stipulated any evidence of FGM should be reported to police and educators. Currently over 24,000 girls under age 18 are at risk of having their clitorises and labia removed, said the report, because they live with women who had FGM themselves. Keep reading »

Vivian Vosburg, Mother Of One Of Rebecca Sedwick’s Cyberbullies, Arrested For Child Abuse & Child Neglect

“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” said Florida’s Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd in regards to the announcement that Vivian Vosburg, 30, of Lakeland, FL, the stepmother of one of the cyberbullies who tormented Rebecca Sedwick, 12, before her suicide, has been charged with child neglect and child abuse. Vosburg is the stepmom of the 14-year-old girl who was arrested for aggravated stalking after Rebecca, a middle schooler, killed herself in September by jumping off a building. Vosburg was not arrested in connection to the bullying, which took the form of both in-person and online harassment; instead, Vosburg’s arrest is in connection to a video she posted on Facebook of her beating her own children.

Minnesota Vikings Player Adrian Peterson’s Two-Year-Old Son Dies From Beating By Mother’s Boyfriend

  • The two-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings player Adrian Peterson has died. The child was beaten on Wednesday by his mother’s boyfriend, Joseph Patterson, who has a history of domestic violence charges. The kid was Peterson’s “secret” child (whose name is being kept private) by an ex-girlfriend. Both were now living in South Dakota and the child was alone with Patterson, who was the one who called 911 when the child became unresponsive. The child suffered from “multiple head injuries” during the abuse, which also included choking.  This story is so disgusting and sad. [Deadspin, Sports Illustrated]

This is so sickening I can’t even make any jokes about Florida (and that’s saying something): a 40-year-old man was arrested for allegedly beating a minor relative for 40 minutes with a switch while he “played the Robin Thicke song ‘Blurred Lines,’ striking her with the switch to the beat of the music.” WHAT THE FUCK!  Steven Grady Fillingham also videotaped part of the beating and sent it via text message to his (now ex-) girlfriend, who handed the video to police and wisely broke up with him. Fillingham somehow only managed to be booked on three counts of cruelty towards a child, despite the fact he is accused of other physical and mental abuse, like other beatings with a belt, forcing the child to shovel dirt for 90 minutes before being allowed to go to bed at 1:30 a.m., and making her hold heavy weights as punishment for being “lazy.” The child reported received the “Blurred Lines” beating because she had skipped school. Fortunately, she has now been placed with her mother.

What the fuck is wrong with people?!? Sometimes I am seriously convinced that people should have to get a license in order to be a parent or guardian. [Uproxx via Pensacola News Journal and The Smoking Gun]

Mom Shames 7th Grade Daughter For Twerking At School Dance By Making Her Hold Sign In Busy Intersection

Parenting Trend: Public Humiliation!

Parenting: you’re doing it wrong.

Bakersfield, California, mother Frances Hena asked a local news station whether she was supposed to “whoop” her 11-year-old daughter instead, which was clearly the only other alternative to making young Jamie stand in a busy intersection with a sign reading, “I was disrespecting my parents by twerking at a school dance.” Hena thinks that publicly embarrassing her daughter will teach the kid not to twerk. Had she watched Miley Cyrus’ twerk-performance at the VMAs, she would understand twerkers are plenty capable of embarrassing themselves, thank you. Keep reading »

Nada al-Ahdal Will Not Be A Child Bride

In impoverished Yemen, the forced marriage of young girls is not an uncommon practice. According to the UK’s Daily Mail, men will pay poor families a “bride price” for their young daughters, so marrying off girls as young as Nada al-Ahdal, 11, happens often. There is also a traditional belief that if girls are married when they are young, they will live away from temptation and will grow up to be obedient wives. Keep reading »

11-Year-Old To Give Birth To Rapist's Baby In Chile, Where Abortion Is Illegal

A 11-year-old girl in Chile, who was impregnated by her mother’s boyfriend, told a TV interviewer recently that giving birth to a baby would be like “having a doll.” Chilean President Sebastian Pinera, who opposes abortion, has praised the fifth grader publicly for her “depth and maturity” in carrying the pregnancy to term.

Oh, and did I mention that in Chile, abortion is super-duper illegal? Keep reading »

Ugh. When the fuck did we stop letting children be children and start sexualizing them?
