Cultural Collision, Immoral Relativism?

Stageleft: life on the left side » Hyper-Partisan Mental Gymnastics

Very recently it has been discovered/all edged and I do not have the full details, but I am going to blog about this story as it has already become pronounced here on the internet from "reliable" Canadian military sources" which can be traced if you follow the link provided by the link I give you for this post. Basically, what I would like to say is that the publisher in the blog that I posted cannot understand how in the name of cultural relativism, can the leftist leaning cultural relativistic Canadian government, judge and criticize the Afghan "tradition" of having male prostitution even with young men 15 to 16 years of age?

It is well known that in Canada, not that long ago, that there were laws on the books that young people as young as 15 years old were able to have intimate relations. Of course this has changed since then.

The long and short however, is that even in the name of cultural relativism, how can this be happening? Our American men and women are fighting a war in Afghan for people that have "traditions" that include male prostitution that is legal at the age of 15 yrs? What are these people thinking? There is no such thing as human rights or wrongs in there vocabulary.
