I most certainly did not know this (from the Oxford University Press blog):
Because of the Kony 2012 campaign, everyone is talking about the Lord’s Resistance Army, its deranged leadership, and its many victims in northern Uganda, notably child soldiers. [...]
The image du jour of the child soldier is Africanized. Yet only about 40% of child soldiers world-wide are in Africa. Child soldiering is a global phenomenon…The image du jour also tends to portray child soldiers as boys. Yet it is estimated that nearly 40% of child soldiers are girls.
At the end of the day, I find it hard to believe that the whole Kony2012 hullabaloo will produce anything lasting. Instead, it’s only legacy will be the hot air that the international punditry generated over it.
