It is called Female Genital Mutilation not female genital cutting!!
As a survivor of this atrocity I am mad as hell for the organisations ,individuals who have never been through this terror bringing up the theory of lessening MUTILATION to cutting.
For instance you can never belittle RAPE to forced sex to please the RAPISTS and work with them..I say send the rapists and mutilators to JAIL or HELL!!! Stop using FGM for publicity and donations at the expense of 300 million survivors and millions of victims murdered every year...Then you try to convince me with your intact genitals you know better about the hell we have gone through and still live with it every single day!!!!! while 200 of us bleed to death every day and you dare say it is cutting? SHAME ON YOU!!!!!
All I know is FGM as a form of sex discrimination and gender-based violence performed to control women's sexuality, ensure virginity until marriage, and guarantee their acceptance into a particular community. A 2008 statement on FGM adopted by 10 prominent UN agencies
clearly states that,
the guiding principles for considering genital practices as FGM should be those of human rights, including the right to health, the rights of children and the right to nondiscrimination on the basis of sex."
Let there be no lighter misinterpreted version for any organisation, movement, culture, religion, country or individual to misconstrue FGM's harmful face of atrocity.
