Diatribe: To At Least One Indonesian Mother, Size DOES Matter.


WorstMotherOfTheYearMost mothers sincerely want what’s best for their children.  They work hard, as do fathers, to see that their offspring are healthy, educated and safe.  Some parents work two sometimes three jobs in order to send their children to private schools, feed them only organic foods, buy them specific clothing or take them on fantastic vacations.  Whatever they think is “best” for their child.

Surely, each parent wants every child to have a happy, successful and prosperous life.  In many cultures, however, parents focus all of their energies on the success of their children because it is assumed that they will become the child’s responsibility in their golden years.  I imagine efforts toward the ultimate success of their offspring can be extremely motivational … and arguably selfish.

Recently, an Indonesian woman drowned her nine-year-old son in a bathtub.  Apparently, she was worried that his “small penis” would affect his prospects for the future.  The 38-year-old mother from the nation’s capital, Jakarta, allegedly told police that her son had a small penis before he was circumcised and that it appeared to shrink further after the operation.

The woman, reportedly, told investigators that she had intentionally drowned her son in a bathtub filled with water, dressed him and laid him on a bed before going to a nearby police station to confess.  She killed her son because she believed he would have a “bleak future” due to his small penis.

Officials said the woman was fully conscious of what she had done but a psychological test was still ordered to assess her mental condition.

I say skip the assessment and mark her down as “cray cray”.  Rational people understand that drowning their son in a bathtub directly affects his “prospects for the future” much more so than the size of his penis.

I’d say that the prospects for HER future are quite bleak, wouldn’t you?

  1. You gotta take a test to drive a car, but any dimwitted moron can be a mother.


  2. OMG! If she really thought this was a problem why not drown him as a baby & save herself the trouble of feeding him for 9 years? She must have had a mental breakdown of some kind. This is just so sad!
