And the oppression of women was invisible, until the first emancipation.
And the abuse of children, was invisible until the Ryan Report in Ireland in 2009.
And so naturally child abuse remains invisible in most of our lives.
Sigmund Freud showed that child rearing practices formed the basis of our personality.
For instance, the sacrificial form of child rearing gives us the paranoid personality. And the abusive form of child rearing gives us the bullying personality. And the authoritarian form of child rearing gives us the controlling personality. Whereas the nurturing form of child rearing gives us the empathic and creative personality.
So how natural we avoid exploring our own child rearing and distract ourselves with the externals of personality with mbti.
How natural we should avoid the pain of our own child rearing.
Two weeks ago, Wiam, a young girl (7 years old), was brutally raped and wounded in Sidi Kacem by a married middle-aged Moroccan man. Since there isn't any reference to the word "paedophilia" according to the Moroccan laws , rapists like this only risk very light sentences (if they are ever condemned at all). The man was sent in a psychiatric hospital and should have been released after a few months there. It's the usual tactic used to bury the case and innocent paedophiles. And even when they are sentenced, they risk only two years at most, like what recently happened in Agadir (a young 12 years old boy was raped in a mosque by its guardian).
But this time, a few members of the Moroccan civilian society (mostly artists) said it was too much, and that Morocco has to react. They want that paedophiles should really be condemned, even if they are Islamic clerks, and even foreigners.
But there's also another related law that this association wants to abolish, the article 475. This article, (partly inspired by the sharia) says that a paedophile can avoid any condemnation at all if he marries his victim. Of course, it works only if the victim there is a young nubile girl (older than 11), and the rapist, an unmarried man.
Last year for instance, the young Amina el Filali (15 years old when it happened) was forced to marry her rapist by the judge. A few months later, she commited suicide. Such cases happen mostly in rural or poor settings, but they do happen.
But this case caused a massive uproar, and several large protests were held in Morocco to abolish this law. But so far, the minister of Justice (a woman who belongs to the conservative Islamist party -PJD-) refused to change the law. Even when several prominent progressive Islamic scholars joined the protesters and claimed that nothing within Islam should allow this to ever happen again.
 The paradox is that if the victim is an adult woman, the sentence should have been 5-20 years in jail, according to the article 486 of the Moroccan law. Unlike what you see in Saudi Arabia or within the Gulf states, rape is a very serious offense in Morocco.
