FGM (Warning: Some distressing images)

FGM is a serious issue. Can you imagine how it would feel to have someone take a knife to you down there?? If there is no real basis in religion, then it seems that this painful practice is carried out purely for aesthetics, and to prove virginity. A fear of female sexuality and a misunderstanding of the female anatomy leads to this mutilation. You shouldn’t need to go this far just to be ‘clean’ and get a husband. The pain of being opened up with a knife and then stitched back together again every time you have a child? It’s not worth it. The practice needs to end!
