Another Case of Consanguinamory in Zimbabwe


In a tabloid-like news blurb that doesn't identify anyone, we get this...
A man in Zimbabwe has committed the worst crime possible, not once but twice.
Worst crime possible? You mean like genocide?
A resident of a village in Zimbabwe left his mother pregnant with his child for the second time and absconded.
Abandonment is a terrible thing to do, but hardly the worst crime possible.
The mother also allegedly fled the village, according to reports in the British media.

Ah.

About four years ago, the mother and son were fined by their village church after the council learnt that the woman was left pregnant by her son.

That's the real crime... fining people for things that are no business of anyone else.
At that time, the woman had miscarried when she was four months pregnant. Now, history has repeated itself.

The villagers were outraged on learning about the incestuous relationship which has been on since 2008. The woman's husband passed away after a long illness.
If the villagers would mind their own business rather than interfering the private lives of other people, nobody would feel a need to leave.
Now villagers want to hunt and get the duo back to the village and subject them to harsh punishment to send out a signal to the entire community that such incestuous relationships would not be tolerated.
Why? What's the problem? Why don't they focus on their own lives, instead, instead of grabbing pitchforks and torches because two people love each other?

  1. You'd think they would be smart enough to leave that village and go live somewhere else after the first time they were caught.

I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at yahoo dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.
