FACT: FGM WITHIN WESTERN COMMUNITIES

6 Dec

FGM HASN’T ONLY BEEN HAPPENING AMONG MIGRANT COMMUNITIES FROM AFRICA AND ASIA

Renee grew up in Mid-West America. At the tender age of 3 she became a victim of FGM. In 1947 her mother brought her to see a doctor, because she assumed that her daughter was masturbating. That day Renee’s clitoris was removed and she was told never to talk about it again.

But Renee is not the only woman from a Western society, who has undergone female genital mutilation.

At the beginning of the 19. century masturbation was believed to be a perversion, which had to be stopped with all available means. The British doctor Isaac Baker Brown introduced clitoridectomy, the surgical removal of the clitoris, as a method to reduce hysteria and masturbation in women.

Female Genital Mutilation was practiced in several countries all over the world in order to mute women’s sexuality and pleasure. Still there are women, who have to suffer from the longterm consequences living all over the world.

There are and have been many religious leaders declaring masturbation a sin and recommending FGM to prevent it within Western communities!

FGM was and is still a worldwide problem, which has to be fought by every one of us!

    totally agree that is a world wide problem .Now that we hav the bigest mass migration since ww2.

    F G M will be transported far and wide .

    We all hav to watch for this practice and save our girls

    Mysogony by male populations is at the core of this belief and religon is invented and controlled by mysogonyist males .

    Men fear female sexuality the raw truth is because we can maintain ongoing orgasams , longer than the( one minut male.) for centuries men hav controlled women because they fear and know our sexual ability to last longer than a ( one act wonder)?????
    I do love men ….. but not a lot has changed in my 72 years ….
    and Viagra has contributed to the rise and rise of the patricial male ,staying in the public space longer…
