While I do feel it's wrong to have arranged marriages, especially with a 14 year old girl, it is part of their culture, been around for thousands of years and who are we to judge one culture, to make comparisons?

Naturally, almost all species (Including our own) have a system where as soon as the females are able to breed, they're turned into a broodmare. I don't agree with it, and I wouldn't pretend it's acceptable because we used to do it, but it is their culture, it's their way of life and it isn't our place to condemn their practices, although we can disagree with it.

It being someones culture is not a good reason to not try to stop a horrid practice. The only thing it should do is help you jnderstand why the horrid practice happens.

While I do feel it's wrong to burn witches ...

While I do feel it's wrong to circumcise women ...

While I do feel it's wrong to sacrifice virgins to the Moon God ...

If you "do feel it's wrong," you've already judged!

(and it ain't always a bad thing, to judge)

"...I do feel it's wrong..."

Clearly not wrong enough.

@antichrist: I'm not racist, but chocolate cake is delicious.

Yeah, this is pretty vile.

Slavery, serfdom and rights of lords and kings to bed any woman or girl they wanted have also been part of culture, for thousands of years.
Bad things can be removed, educated away.

What's not been around for thousands of years is computers, and the internet. Better not use them, stupid.

Stop saying you "don't agree with it", dolt; you clearly love it.

We CAN condemn their practices, as they are discriminating against women and girls. Western women didn't get voting rights and ownership rights and rights to be seen as adults when we reach a certain age just out of thin air, ya know. Women fought and died for those rights. We can help the women in third world countries to fight for those rights too, and try to reduce the numbers of deaths as much as we can. For yes, women and girls are dying due to pregnancy and childbirth every other minute. This is NOT acceptable.

What the hell is it about MMO's which attracts so many pedos and pedo apologists?

@Doubting Thomas

My guess is that its because it has a considerably higher portion of underage players compared to other games, since kids are muh more likely to have the kind of time to sink massive amounts of hours into a MMO.
