No, only the most illiterate, least evolved specimens support such savagery. By the way, I do not support MALE genital mutilation in the form of circumcision either, and for the same obvious reasons.
No it is barbaric. It reduces women and young girls to the status of cattle.
No, it is cruel, tortuous and barbaric. How can this still be going on to helpless young girls.
How can anybody normal support that? It is horrible, mentally sick (pure sadism performed on innocent ones, who never heard for another option and believe that living without part of genitals is standard) and act that is against every human ethic and morality. Such act would be rigorously punished by criminal law in all European countries, USA and big majority of other countries in the world.
The problem with genital mutilation is that is part of tradition , what is not easy to change, because even victims of genital mutilation support it.
No. It's another barbaric custom of primitive tribes, such as Islam. Religions are evil, and Islam is one of the stupidest worst.
Why on earth would I support such an evil act! I actually wanted to sample the opinion of the people here. Many do not know the danger inherent in the barbaric practice. As far as I am concerned, it is the greatest traumatic phenomenon to female gender. it's really sad and I am cock sure it is a sinful act. But the question is, are you making your voice heard about this heinous act? Pls. speak out, who knows, you might be the change. Here in Africa, our people need a lot of orientation. I can never marry a circumcised girl, never!

I ask this after I received what appeared to be a remarkably stupid yet long winded comment to one of my hubs written on female genital mutilation. The commenter said that it was fine and should be an accepted practice because it was similar to people in the West drinking alcohol, just another...

There has recently been a debate on a radio station about female genital mutilation, which I find abhorrent. Why is this practice acceptable on religious grounds, when it is ultimately child abuse?Why don't Jehovah's witnesses get charged with manslaughter when they allow someone to die for...
