Indonesian Mother Kills Son Because His Penis Was Too Small
Many men have anxiety about the size of their package. Normally, mothers are supposed to stay out of that fray. However, according to a recent report, an Indonesian mother found her son's small penis so distressing that she killed him in the bathtub over it.
According to AFP, the 38-year-old mother lived in the capital city of Jakarta with her son. As she put it to police, she explained that he had a small penis before, but had recently been circumcised and the procedure had made him even smaller. According to police spokesman Rikwanto, who only goes by a single name, she worried that his small penis size would negatively affect his prospects in the future.
The mother took the matter into her own hands when she drowned her nine-year-old son in the bathtub. After performing that act, she dried him off, dressed him and placed him on the bed.
"She told police investigators that she killed him as he would have a bleak future with his small penis," Rikwanto said to the Agence France Presse.
Immediately afterwards, the mother left her home and reported her crime to the police. Rikwanto explained that the woman seemed conscious of her actions. Nonetheless, and unsurprisingly, police ordered a mental examination of the woman's state.
There does not appear to be any relationship between penis size and career outcomes. However, according to one report, many men who believe that they have small penises report feeling anxiety and shame about their manhood. Many also admit to having had few or no sexual experiences and put women on pedestals, displaying a form of "inverted narcissism", in which they see themselves as objects to be exploited. However, many men who believe that they have small penises are actually of a normal size.
For most men, their penises become larger during puberty.
