I don't understand why this thread isn't on the top of the list here on ATS.
This isn't the ATS I used to know.
And the people here who're comparing this barbaric to male circumcision? You've got to be kidding me. Bunch a asses.
FGM is brutally performed (the majority of the time with no anesthesia) under deplorable conditions with not a thought to hygiene, performed on baby
girls from 1 week to 15 YEARS! The older girls being held down by multiple people adding to her excruciating pain, misery, fear and humiliation.
Again ‘boys’ - you think that happened to you? No.
If little boys were being circumcised at 15 years I might have something to say - but they're not.
Do you remember when you were circumcised men? No.
Are you healthier for it? Yes.
So shut up the ‘he says she says’ and start paying attention to an epidemic of evil perpetrated over 30 countries including the USA.
Once every 6 seconds a girl has her clitoris, labia cut out - and more. Some are then ‘sewn up’ so their husbands are guaranteed of their
The young girls and women suffer death, infection, urinary tract problems, painful sex, problems with childbirth, still deaths of their children - the
list could go on and on.
Facts are little tiny boys before 8 days old who are circumcised do not bleed to death.
Do not loose their sexual experience in the future.
Do not DIE from the healthy practice of circumcision.
These girls? They pay for this barbaric evil filthy 'act' for the rest of their lives.
You men who've been circumcised? Do you have painful sex?
Pain when you urinate (unless of course there are other underlying heath problems)?
No. So shut up your whining, be men, and do something to stop this barbarous ritual.
The practice of FGM MUST be stopped.
Edit to add: I apologize for THIS screen shot as the head pic for the video. There is nothing any more graphic in this video than what you
see here. I assume the video maker chose this pic for shock value. I've asked a Mod to check if this frontline shot is acceptable under the terms of
the ATS T&C but I assure you - though the video brings tears (to me at least) there is no graphic showing of the FGM.
I'll never be the same again. Ever.
I've seen something that I cannot un-see or forget.
God help us all.
