I was listening to a piece on NPR this morning about fears for the children who star in the movie "The Kite Runner". Seems some of the boys who played in the scene that depict a sexual assault are now afraid for their lives.

The parents of the children said even actors playing a part involving the sexual assault on a boy will be so severely stigmatize in the Afgan society that they will be ostracized and could even be killed. The parents said they were not told about the movie before it was shot and if they had been they would not have let their son play the part.

We have a great deal of work because there are still people/cultures in this world that hold a child responsible when he or she is sexually assualted.

Just very sadd...
