The SJWs hate it when people talk about this, as do people who want to support the Islamic invasion of Europe and the United States.
Looking this square in the eye is important, though, because I believe it is one of the reasons for the push among university scholars and mainstream media types, and Islamic promoters, to legitimize pedophilia.
First, is pedophilia common among Islamic societies?
Yes. Child marriage is a cultural practice that Islamic countries and Islamic families refuse to give up.
How young are children allowed to be married off in Islam. Some scholars argue 2 years old, some 4 years old. But they all allow children to be married at horrifyingly young ages.
And is Islamic religion against secular government laws prohibiting child marriage?
Yes. Did you know that the Pakistani government tries to introduce a law banning child marriage, and it was shot down by Islamic scholars?
Now lest you think that child marriages are only happening in third world Islamic countries, you should be aware that it is happening in large numbers in the UK
and guess what? It's happening in the United States.
Did you know that New Jersey governor Chris Christie vetoed a bill passed by the New Jersey legislature banning the marriage of children under 18? He used all kinds of weasel words, but it was clear he was pandering to the large electoral population of fundamentalist muslims that represents a big voting block in NJ.
and then there's Europe
Also, the SJWs and muslim apologists try to say that child marriage is OK, because the husband is not supposed to have sex with the child while she is still a child.
Actually, the Islamic standard is that the man is not supposed to "consummate" the marriage, ie fuck the girl vaginally, until she has her first period. That can occur as young as 13 or 12 years old. That is pedophilia by any Western legal standard.
But there's more. Islamic scholars also state that a man is allowed to perform the practice of "thighing" on the child bfor she reaches puberty. This is a practice where the man inserts his penis between the thighs of the child, and jacks himself off using the kid's thighs.
This is clearly pedophilia by any Western legal standard.
Then we get into homosexual pedophilia.
In Afghanistan, Pakistan and a few of the other 'stans' there is a tradition of 'Bacha bazi' in which prepubescent boys are dressed up in girls clothes and dance at male parties (women are not allowed to dance in front of men in these countries) the boys are considered fair game for sexual abuse, and some are even forced into pederastic long-term relationships with rich men.
Any effort to understand pedophilia has to take a cold-eyed look at the baked-in support for pedophilia of the Islamic religion, and to investigate correlations with efforts to legitimize pedophilia as part of legitimizing the infiltration of Western culture with Islamic culture which has demonstrated that it will not bend on this issue.
