Quoting libralady

Watching this reminded of the documentary made a couple of years ago, about a family who walked on al fours, living somewhere in the South East of Turkey, close to the Syrian border.

 

What strikes me as so odd, the children in the orphanages, not necessarily orphans but more likely to have been abandonned by their parents because of their disability or handicap.  Yet the family whose children walked on all fours, were completely accepted by the villagers.

 

All 19 children (yes they had 19 children and if I remember correctly the husband and wife were related quite closely) initially walked on all fours, but eventually only 5 remained that way, basically because they could not balance themselves on two feet. 

 

 

I remember watching that - it was quite fascinating actually - it was big news when this family were ´discovered´.

Nobody can deny all. That might have happened in Türkiye. But the way of bringing it to daylight is not fair. What if a Türk lady has entered into an institution of a Western country in such a sneaky way and shot the things?? Is the Europe pure clear? I don´t never believe so.

I have seen humanly shameful scenes even in the streets shot by a Türk journalist women who was frankly directing questions to the European Governors and getting silly answers explaining nothing...

OMG here we go again.  You are more concerned with "bad publicity" than for those children.  Thank GOD TV programme makers DO bring these things "into daylight" and don´t leave them shut away, out of sight, out of mind.

 

I am sure if you are one of the children, you would not give a damn about the bad publicity.... {#lang_emotions_you_crazy}

 We have "undercover" investigations in our own country all the time - it is a GOOD THING!!!!  You really make me so angry.  You concern for these children is LESS than your concern that Turkey is being criticised. 

 

Forget about Turkey, forget about Europe, just think about these children! {#lang_emotions_wtf}

 WE DO look at ourselves all the time and that is a GOOD THING.   We dont say we are pure and whiter than white.

 

You are so insular and concerned with BORDERS. If you don´t like this kind of publicity, then DO SOMETHING about these places...
