Reuters reports the UN passed a resolution urging the ban female genital mutilation citing health risks. ealth risks. What about assault on humanity by slicing off a girl's ability to feel love thru her body. 140 million girls have been genitally mutilated in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Yemen, Iraqi Kurdistan but not Saddam's Iraq, showing that Saddam wasn't completely wrong to use mustard gas, and Indonesia.
There are different types of female genital mutilation including slashing off the entire vagina and sewing it up except for a tiny hole. And we thought we had the smallest penises. Then there is clitoridectomy, the total or partial excision of the clitoris along with the genital lips plus scraping off whatever sensation might remain and cauterizing it. We need not explain what this does to the female sexual experience except to say that the international right to safe and satisfying sex, incorporated in our silly RH law, referred to these horrifying practices along with the infant sex trade exposed by Ashton Kutcher at the UN conference where he insulted the Russian ambassador for suggesting child sex is a cultural right that must be protected like heritage sites. This is why western imperialism, all told, was a good thing. Left to itself, the non-western world would continue to be a horrible place especially for women. The surgical implements used for female genital mutilation range from broken glass and tin can lids to razor blades and scissors.
Although no known religion calls for it, its defenders say it is an article of a faith that none of them can identify. Real reasons for it are to keep girls pure, over and beyond any temptation and increase male sexual pleasure if it's particularly tiny. And the UN is worried that female genital mutiliation may cause urinary tract infection. I told you the UN is useless.
What should be done? Definitely nothing by the UN. Aristocratic England, which had slaves, woke up one day and realized that the black servant was human and the slave trade was abhorrent. So William Pitt the Younger declared naval war on all countries, I mean all countries that engaged in the slave trade. Something like that is in order with regard to female genital mutilation.
Good night and good luck.
