And you thought your mom was bad. A set of mothers have reportedly been detained by Moscow police for attempting to sell off their daughters’ virginity on the Internet.
The girls were only thirteen and sixteen, and the auction was doing brisk business before it was shut down.
One offer came in for as much as $12,000 to bed the thirteen-year-old, a figure that shocked even her mother. The mothers apparently told the media in Russia they would restore their own virginity as they could, but since they can’t, they hoped their daughters would “sacrifice” themselves to help their families out of poverty.
See what happens when Sarah Palin steps down and there’s no one to watch over Russia?
The good news: one mom was selfless enough (snort) she was going to use at least a portion of the money for her daughter’s dowry after paying off family bills. And the moms were also willing to make their “customers” use a condom. Bully for them!
I’ve been debating who is more depraved here – the mothers who put their girls up on the auction block or the people knowingly bidding to have sex with a child. It’s close, but I’m going to have to go with the mothers here – charged with protecting their children from harm, they’ve managed to do everything but.
The media reports indicate the girls did not know what their mothers were doing to them. It’s unfortunate they ever had to find out.
