Are/Were Your Parents This Bad?

I'm not going to put mine up for any Parent of the Year awards for the time I was a child, but they never did anything sick like this.

NAPLES, Fla. — A woman who had her 13-year-old daughter's genitalia pierced to make it uncomfortable for her to have sex was acquitted of aggravated child abuse on Thursday.

The girl, now 16, had testified that her mother asked a friend in 2004 to shave the girl's head to make her unattractive to boys and later held her down for the piercing.

A jury deliberated for about three hours before deciding the mother's actions didn't involve punishment or malicious intent, or cause permanent damage or disfigurement.

Let's reiterate: a jury didn't convict her.

To paraphrase, are they nucking futs? How is this NOT abusive? I don't give a flying flip where you come from or what your religion is or anything, but if you have a child in THIS COUNTRY you cannot brand, mutilate or otherwise harm them to appease whatever crazy goofy karma makes you think this is right. A pox on her and for God's sake, get some general public counseling for the good but insane populace of Naples, Florida. There's something seriously wrong there.
