This tragedy began when a 10 year-old girl was asked by her teacher who she bathed with, to which she replied “my dad.” The father, a Chinese man, was reported to the police and had his child custody taken away from him. In a frenzy, the man waved his knife at the police, and as a result was shot and killed.
The single dad had raised his daughter on his own all her life, had been bathing with her since she was a baby, and was still continuing to at the age of 10. It’s not an uncommon practice in Chinese society, but in the United States, parents bathing with their child of opposite gender over the age of six can be suspect for sexual abuse.
We’re so quick to think twist everything, it’s like we don’t believe in innocence anymore. What happens to the daughter, now all alone?
