79. This has nothing to do with other cultures.
The slimeballs who did this are Americans. And my response is both emotional and intellectual. I've worked with sexually abused children and this case was clearly sexual abuse. Sorry, a grown man masturbating while watching porn in the presence of an 8 year old, is absolutely child abuse. So is having Mommy's boyfriend fuck mommy whild the 8 year old is on the bed, in order to "educate" the child.

As for the one room hypothetical, I not only addressed it, I lived it. Until my son was 4 we lived in a cabin which was essentially one room. We curtained off our bed and waited til our son was asleep to have sex. And had he accidently seen us, I would have had no problem with it. That is NOT the case here.

And before you come up with your sickening bullshit rationalizing clear child abuse, I suggest you read the post of the woman on this thread who suffered an experience similar to the child in this story.

My reaction has nothing to do with puritanism or cultural insensitivity. Though speaking of insensitivity, yours towards child sexual abuse, is pretty impressive.
