Wife beating in Africa

Terrible news article about the widespread wife and girl friend beating in Sub-Saharan Africa. Another reason to avoid the place, along with AIDS, instability, bad water, poverty and excessive gun violence.

Apparently men and women accept that female disobedience is grounds for vicious beating and occasional murder. Totally unacceptable to me.

Treating a human as an object subject to brutalization for a difference of opinion is a denial of human rights and respect. Sometimes with children mild physical punishment is needed, but after about age 6 you need to convince and talk rather than hit. And before age 6 I think one spank is enough to get the point across!

There is too much violence in American culture but Africa is far worse! Shameful!
