Hello, You’ve reached Dial-a-Source, the place for all your sourcing needs. Please press one if you are a liberal. Press two if you are a conservative.
You have mashed all the buttons. Please mash all the buttons once if you are an anarchist, twice if you are a libertarian, and three times if you’re Adam Carter Kleinheider.
Welcome, Mr. Kleinheider.
Who is on the verge of ruining it for everyone today, sir? Press one for “women,” two for “Mexicans,” three for “homosexuals,” or four for “Muslims.”
You have chosen Mexicans. Please choose a reason Mexicans are not like us and will never be like us. Press one for “They work harder than us.” Just kidding, Mr. Kleinheider. We here at Dial-a-Source just wanted to make sure you were paying attention. Press one for “They have no respect for the law.” Press two for “They refuse to learn English.” Press three for “They are out of control, sexually.” Press four for “They’re taking our jobs.”
You have pressed three for “They are out of control, sexually.”
Please hold while we come up with a source that will match your needs.
Okay, sir, here is a post about one instance and here is a magazine article that you can use to bolster your claim that this one instance hints at a larger pathology among those Mexicans.
Please be sure to submit your text to our data base so that we might provide it to others in need as a suitable resource.
Thank you and have a good day!
Just as a side note, I think my favorite thing about the “Hispanic Family Values” article is this:
But other kinds of traditional Hispanic values have survived—not all of them necessarily ideal in a modern economy, however. One of them is the importance of having children early and often. “It’s considered almost a badge of honor for a young girl to have a baby,” says Peggy Schulze of Chrysalis House, an adoption agency in Fresno. (Fresno has one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in California, typical of the state’s heavily Hispanic farm districts.) It is almost impossible to persuade young single Hispanic mothers to give up their children for adoption, Schulze says. “The attitude is: ‘How could you give away your baby?’ I don’t know how to break through.”
The most powerful Hispanic family value—the tight-knit extended family—facilitates unwed child rearing. A single mother’s relatives often step in to make up for the absence of the baby’s father. I asked Mona, a 19-year-old parishioner at St. Joseph’s Church in Santa Ana, California, if she knew any single mothers. She laughed: “There are so many I can’t even name them.” Two of her cousins, aged 25 and 19, have children without having husbands. The situation didn’t seem to trouble this churchgoer too much. “They’ll be strong enough to raise them. It’s totally okay with us,” she said. “We’re very close; we’re there to support them. They’ll do just fine.”
America, look at what they’re complaining about–they’re pissed that these girls have no shame. They get pregnant and they refuse to see themselves as bad; instead of doing the “evil” thing and having an abortion or doing the “noble” thing and giving the baby to “good” people, they rely on a vast close-knit family to help them raise their children. And their families don’t make them feel bad about having babies.
Well, by god, if these Mexican families won’t come in and put their slutty daughters in their place by making pregnancy the proper punishment for sex we know it is, then what kind of precedent does that set for “our” girls?
The hand-wringing is hilarious.
And before you get started, no, I’m not saying that it’s okay for a 21 year old guy to have sex with a 12 year old girl. I believe that clear instance of child molestation is being used as a smokescreen to talk about the “unbridled” sexuality of Mexican girls. Let us not mistakenly conflate the two.
And second, I do believe that it is important to help girls and women put off having kids for as long as possible, because, clearly, it’s easier to get ahead if you do.
But, at the end of the day, I see a lot here in this article to be emulated. Getting pregnant is not something to be ashamed of. It’s not a punishment. And families should step up and help, if they can.
This seems like a humane way of dealing with teen pregnancy. It doesn’t mean that it can’t be augmented with other stuff that would reduce those pregnancies, but that other stuff should not be complaining because folks aren’t working hard enough to make women feel like shit.
