Although last week's YouTube Tuesday was a funny one, this week's is far from comical.
This is a mini documentary about the breast ironing happening in Cameroon. Mothers are putting hot stones or shells on their daughter's breasts in order to keep them from growing, in hopes of lowering the rate of sexual abuse and teenage pregnancy.
While the mothers are trying to protect their daughters, the honest thing is it is horrible to resort to deforming a young child to attempt to protect them from abuse. In essence these little girls are being abused to protect them from abuse. And the fact remains that perverted men will still look at them with a sexual eye, small breasts or not.
Definitely a sad situation.
