Joke all you can, but I've stated a simple truth. Marriages were often made with girls as young as eleven and no one gave a damn. The prophet mohammed did this.
As for young boys going to war: Yes, it always happened. And happens even today, we all know about unofficial armies, be of drug dealers, or tribal wars, that use young boys. But I think going out to kill and be killed is a little different and more severe than sex.
Man are always going to be attracted to young girls as young as 9 years old. I did not say sex, I said attracted. It's difficult for most men to acknowledge that, but it's the plain truth. Put a naked 9 year old in front of you and if your sexual organ does not get full of blood, call a doctor: You have erectile disfunction.
You can see the contradiction in fathers who do not take sex seriously, and take a more "modern", liberal view of the subject, as if it is just a bodly function. But such people may be the same who say "I do not favor those sick people who have sex with 13 year old girls - I have a daughter." But if sex is just a bodly function, why care about that? My theory: That father feels secret sexual attraction towards his offpring, from there comes the desire to protect her from other males. In example of this are cultures in which the father initiated the daughter sexually. I think freud would agree. Of course, most fathers would rather die than to admit that for one second some lustful though crossed their minds about their daughters. The reverse is also true, with the boy projecting his feelings of warm love and sexual energy towards the mother, and the girl, towards the father. It has been also proved that children have sexual impulses from a very early age. Do not touch your daughter's private parts.
You know I'm right. If you're all so "pagan", you know even more. To have more evidence, search in pornography video sites for "daddy" or "father and daughter". Who do you think are the majority of people watching those videos? Sons?
