Married to a Child? Here's a Brochure!


This is not the first asinine move on the part of the Swedish government, and it won't be the last. Perhaps it's best to focus on the positive: the fact that a good many Swedes, even in top government positions, are snapping out of reflexive appeasement mode and, when confronted with a piece of nonsense like "Information for Those who Are Married to Children," are capable of experiencing - and expressing - indignation where indignation, and nothing less, is called for. Alas, it doesn't look as if this sorry episode will do anything whatsoever to alter the fact that there are child brides living in Sweden - where they are raped, beaten, subjected to genital mutilation, and impregnated at ages when they should be playing with dolls and learning to read.
