Sad but true. It is a cruel world that we live in.
Is the man this wicked?
Cruel most animal must be the man
To tear through a tiny child’s hymen
Raw hunger for sex among the human
How many in silence must be bearing
Dear Ariya, I disagree with your comments because she has reach reproductive age at the age of 6 years in 1933. In the past this could be categorise as a natural event. Social law and country law could have been different at that time. Girl who has reached natural puerberty may have activated the
Male. Animal and natural world no age restriction for reproduction.
Thanks for comments, My dear Indragee,
I am not inclined to accept your view that a six year grand daughter
Did activate (stimulated) her sixty eight years mature grand father
Hers was a curious case of precocious puperty as age of menarche,
Being coming down over the years, along with puberche & thelarche
Furthermore, I mentioned as a curiosity, as so it has been published
You probably would have heard of Prof Dewhurst from MRCOG days
A very reputable scholar to surface it as an unusual obstetrics case
One can safely assume it would not have been an ordinary occurrence
