Circumcision And Female Genital Mutilation

Is there any reason to do this anymore?
Articles like this make me sick http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/doctor-accused-of-genital-mutilation-on-girls/ar-BBzOUEy?ocid=spartanntp.
Especially when people have to be politically correct by stating A Detroit area physician faces federal charges for allegedly performing female genital mutilation on multiple 6- to 7-year-old girls as part of a religious and cultural practice

There is no reason to do this to children and babies. It is child abuse.
Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not. Both ideas are overwhelming. AE

    Psst!

    People don't like to envision mutilated vajajays first thing in the morning. Let them enjoy their coffee for chrissakes!

    Where is the political correctness? It's a statement of fact.

    I don't know what religion or culture it was as the article did not state one.
    At any rate it is child abuse no matter what culture or religion it was done in the name of.

    FGM is a cultural practice, it is and has been practiced in extremist sects of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and other religions.
    It is tied to religion closely, but is more of a cultural tradition than a religious one.
    This doctor is from India, and area that is 88% Hindu and around 10% Muslim.
    Your assumption is yours to make, but there's no reason journalists should be making those kind of assumptions.
    If they did and you didn't agree you would be calling it fake news.

    I'm glad my parents chose to have me circumcised, but that has absolutely nothing to do with what this article is about.
  • I know it's a cultural practice.
    The journalist to be thorough should have reported the culture and religion.
    Instead it was written as PC so as not to offend.

    It was reported that she is Gujarati, the victims may be from different religions, obscure sects, they may be completely unknown, and they probably want to protect the privacy and dignity of the children that suffered this shitty fate.

    Admit it, you made an assumption that it was Islamic and they deliberately left that out, now you are trying to walk it back.

    You could be right, but it's a shitty assumption, not particularly groovy, IMO.

    Then why is it important that you need to know which religion or culture it was?

    But if your opinion is that it's abuse no matter which religion (and I'd agree), the particular religion is a moot point. Religion didn't commit the crime. Some whack-job committed the crime based on her whack-job interpretation of whatever religion it is.

    It's a practiced condoned by a whack-job doctor and some whack-job parents because they've misinterpreted their religion. Not all doctors/parents do this.

    Fuck Dr. Nagarwala's culture. Fuck Dr. Nagarwala's religion. Fuck Dr. Nagarwala. I hope she is indicted and convicted on federal criminal charges of sexual assault, and put on a sex registrysentenced to life in prison. Fucking barbarism. And I thought those cops in Bumfuck, SD doing forced catheterizations were cruel and deviant.

    Only Christian-Judeo values are beyond reproach? Got it. In an email today.

    WHITE HOUSE MEMO
    This is a season of hope for millions of Americans. This week, Jewish families celebrate Passover and retell the story of God’s deliverance of the Jewish people. This Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ and the promise of eternal salvation. America is a Nation of believers. As long as we have faith in each other, and trust in God, we will succeed!

    Well, there are many groups and individuals that are outraged by infant male circumcision, too, though one can argue they aren't really comparable. The aim of FGM is to impede female sexual function and often causes permanent damage to other body systems like the urinary tract. Male circumcision has neither the same goals nor the same outcomes.

    horrific as that stated goal is, mutilation is mutilation at the end of the day. Fuck all what the motive is ......

    Thank you, often.

    (and, I imagine, FGM causes permanent non-physical damage as well...all connected)
