Well it could be that 'tradition' so beloved by some practices willful ignorance. Not new or particularly unique. Or particularly honest with yourself.
Traditions are as common as grains of sand. Some traditions killed babies with the slightest flaw. Some left the infirmed to die rather than accommodate them in the slightest. Some traditions and societies spawned bastard fathers and worthless mothers not to mention emotionally crippled offspring.
Some are pick and choose as the 'traditionalist' needs for the moment.

I don't know how much money you make Tigger but if you do manage more than 22K a year you need a better lawyer. Until there is a female commander in chief you are safe from the Secret Service swooping in.

You either have a poor memory or a shifting set of principles. Easy enough to have happen when someone picks and chooses a 'moral code'- moral slip and evolving principles.
You probably should identify the 'society' you claim helps guide you because it damn sure isn't this one. Who else do you learn from and interact with as part of this 'society' you mention?
