We are often told that cultural relativity is an important sign of an evolved, superior, and elite consciousness.  Who, after all, are we to suggest that American culture is superior to cultures that mutilate the genitals of women, practice the “marriage” of female children, murder women and girls for supposed violations of family honor, and advocate murdering anyone that does not follow their religious beliefs to the letter?

The next time anyone drops the cultural relativity card, direct them to this example of the limitations of evolved, superior and elite consciousness:

A 13-year-old girl has dug herself out of a muddy grave after being raped by two men who then buried her alive in Pakistan.

The teen was abducted from her local village in the Punjab province while she was walking to Koran lessons.

Her father Siddique Mughal told police his daughter had been taken, but they refused to cooperate, Outlook India reported.

The men took the young girl to an isolated place and raped her and then buried her alive as they believed she died during the brutal attack.

But the girl managed to dig her way out the muddy grave and caught the attention of passers-by who helped her to a local medical center.

After local police refused to investigate, the Lahore High Court Chief Justice’s Complaint Cell formally directed them to arrest the girl’s attackers and complete a report on the incident without delay.

Surely this must be unusual?  American criminals do horrible things too.  How could this sort of thing be an indicator of cultural norms?  Doesn’t everyone around the world think and act like crude, unsophisticated Americans?  Read on, gentle readers:

Child rape remains a problem in Pakistan where local activist group Sahil said cultural myths persist such as HIV positive men believing they can be cured through sex with a virgin.

Statistic show cases of child rape have risen from 668 in 2002 to 2,788 last year, according to the International Business Times.

‘We still think these statistics are just a fraction of what’s going on,’ Sanihl’s executive director Manizeh Bano told the International Business Times.

Imagine that.  The evolved, superior and elite obviously can’t.

American, Western culture is not superior to any other?  Blithering, dangerous idiocy.
