Will Judd and Madonna DARE to open their big yaps for this?
Whatever happened to:
Because for once — it’s the right thing to say.
While the ‘clit-heads’ (Don’t complain to US, nobody made them wear the costumes) were protesting and marching about birth control…
They ignored a REAL medical crisis FAR more worthy of their outrage. They call it “Female Genital Mutilation.”
(Well, to be fair Women’s March Organizer, Linda Sarsour, did obliquely reference it in a tweet. Well, maybe that’s not quite what she meant. She was insulting women’s activists Brigitte Gabriel and FGM victim, Ayaan Hirsi-Ali.)
Unlike male circumcision which — whatever you think about it, just removes a flap of skin — FGM (wrongly called female circumcision) is much more invasive:
A quick description from Wiki for those unfamiliar:
The practice is rooted in gender inequality, attempts to control women’s sexuality, and ideas about purity, modesty and beauty. It is usually initiated and carried out by women, who see it as a source of honour, and who fear that failing to have their daughters and granddaughters cut will expose the girls to social exclusion.[a] The health effects depend on the procedure; they can include recurrent infections, difficulty urinating and passing menstrual flow, chronic pain, the development of cysts, an inability to get pregnant, complications during childbirth, and fatal bleeding. There are no known health benefits.
…The procedures are generally performed by a traditional circumciser (cutter or exciseuse) in the girls’ homes, with or without anaesthesia. The cutter is usually an older woman, but in communities where the male barber has assumed the role of health worker he will perform FGM too.[c]
When traditional cutters are involved, non-sterile devices are likely to be used, including knives, razors, scissors, glass, sharpened rocks and fingernails.:491 According to a nurse in Uganda, quoted in 2007 in The Lancet, a cutter would use one knife on up to 30 girls at a time. — Wikipedia
We haven’t even gotten to the emergency yet.
A case of female genital mutilation (FGM) is either discovered or treated at a medical appointment in England every hour, a charity has said.
…Plan International UK said statistics showed there were 8,656 times when a girl or woman was assessed at a doctor’s surgery or hospital.
The NHS figures analysed were between April 2015 and March 2016. They show a patient was assessed on average every 61 minutes. Among those who attended, a case of FGM is newly recorded every 92 minutes on average.
One survivor who went through FGM has described the physical pain caused by FGM. Hibo Wardere, now 46, was mutilated when she was six years old. She told the BBC: “An open wound rubbed with salt or hot chilli – it felt like that.”
…It has been illegal to carry out FGM in the UK since 1985, but there has not been a single successful prosecution. This failure has been branded a “national scandal” by the Home Affairs Select Committee.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd said: “FGM is a devastating act of violence that no woman or girl should ever have to suffer and the criminals who perpetrate it should be brought to justice.”
To put it bluntly… we’d have a lot more respect for those marchers flaunting their first world privilege if they used THEIR voices for these countless little girls.
Maybe if you started chanting ‘HER Pussy HER Choice’ you could actually do some good.
But no. You’re leftists. And will only march in causes that advance your own political agendas.
Looks like it will left be up to the Conservatives to speak up for these girls.
