Islam and Female Genital Mutilation

I don't know why it is that today, the term "hate speech" is tossed around every time somebody on the left hears something that makes them uncomfortable. Many Muslims feel disrespected when practices common in Islam are explained, such as the right of a man to beat his wife so long as the rod isn't bigger around than this thumb and he doesn't hit her in the face. This discussion isn't hate speech. It's merely an informative discussion of a practice that is common in the Muslim world.

The argument runs that if a woman can't feel sexual pleasure, she's better off. This practice is usually undertaken by family members or by a daya before a girl reaches pubescence. 

Warning: Graphic




Practitioners cite benefits to home-surgical cliterectomies for religious purposes.  Welcome to Islam.

  2. But let's not forget -- we're at "war with the enemies of Islam."

    Kerry. You fail. Again.

    1. It's time that we picked and chose our friends more carefully. Certainly any culture that embraces the barbaric and systematic genital mutilation of women is one that we want no part of.

  3. Barbarism is alive and well... And it's about 'ownership' at the lowest level...

    1. Religion of peace...mutilated women tend to be more peaceful and compliant - I suppose. Women who were abused in turn become abusers.

  4. I detest the thought of mutilating anyone, and would never have done something like that to my daughter....
    Yet I had my son circumcised when a day old, as is the custom of many beliefs and religions the world over...

    1. The process is different. In Islam, they remove the clitoris. Many women bleed to death. Men function normally when circumcised.

    2. People who mutilate little girls need to be horse whipped. And a horse whipping is no small thing.

    3. I'm in agreement with you, and I dare say anyone who reads this would be, but it does nothing to stop that horrible practice.
      You are preaching to the choir. Give me a way, method, idea to change it...

    4. The only possible fix: Neutron warhead. Start over.

    5. We had to take my son back in when he was a few days old for his circ, because doc on duty when he was born wouldn't do it. While I expected it to feel "routine", I found myself unprepared for the fact that I felt really bad afterwards, having inflicted this on the little guy.
      I take that feeling and multiply it exponentially-- and simply can't keep my stomach steady when I think about what they're doing to females...
      Horrid.

    6. When they cut little boys, it's a foreskin thing. Really no big deal. When they cut little girls with scissors or a razor blade - and they're not 3 days but 14 years old, it's removing the whole organ. But women who don't "feel" anymore are apparently more compliant and less likely to want to feel anything. Barbaric.

  5. Good thing we're fighting the enemy of Islam, eh?

    1. Your commander-in-chief is a Muslim. He has said on a number of occasions, "if it comes down to a choice, I will stand with Islam." I don't know how it could be any clearer.

    4. We were in to off road racing then. He finished with "then turn it in to a free off road park with free gas every 20 miles." I loved that guy.
