Hey Guys, Think We Can Limit Our "Social Awareness" To Things That Are Actually Taking Place On American Soil?
I know that most people don't spend an exorbitant amount of time scouring the internet like I do, but do these people that are one step away from kidnapping a 12 year old girl away from the senior citizen they think she is about to marry even have WiFi? Pro tip: If someone has their own camera crew with them as they do something that's considered not only wildly inappropriate, but insanely illegal in the most cluttered area of the most populated city in the United States then it's probably being done with the intent of getting your attention. Even 65 year old men that are from whatever country people their age are marrying prepubescent girls know that they should probably do so behind closed doors. I have seen so many stupid viral videos that I have half convinced myself that I am probably going to die by treating an extremely dangerous real life situation like it's going on a YouTube channel. No way I am falling for fucking Igor over here trying to take a middle schooler's hand in marriage in front of hundreds of thousands of outspoken tourists.
Isn't this supposed to be the beauty of living in America? The fact that we don't have to concern ourselves with all the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad shit happening overseas. Pretty sure we have enough "causes" being "fought" for with contrived online videos on American soil. Do we really need to dip our feet into the mating habits of the 3rd world just to get a few more clicks? Don't get me wrong. I feel bad that little girls are being forced into devoting their lives to creepy old men, but nothing I can say or do is going to stop it from happening. I'm pretty sure the next step after "awareness" is "action". Since I am not boarding a plane to fly halfway across the world to picket on behalf of children that don't even speak my language I don't need to know that their lives aren't fair. Ignorance is bliss. Especially when cognizance is futile.
