I'm starting to think that only in America are women allowed to be complete pansies. I was reading this article about the Hadza women and their customs. It explains this woman's scars on her cheeks probably came from crying as a child. If a child cried, they would cut their cheeks so when they cried, it would sting the wounds, therefore teaching them that crying would not be permitted.
a bit HARSH i think, but still. Kinda bad A**
