Forced genital cutting is on the rise in USofA, mainly within the African immigrant communities. The US Census Bureau reported that African immigrants quadrupled to 1.7 million in the past two decades. Some brought along with them the abhorrent practice of chopping off their daughters' genitals. According to old census data, some 228,000 girls in the USofA had their genitals chopped off or are at risk of having their genitals chopped off.
These children reached out for help through the Internet.
Under false pretenses, these girls are offered a vacation "home" to help them connect with their families and find their root. The highest rates of genital cuttings are in Somalia (98 percent of women are cut), Guinea (96 percent), Djibouti (93 percent), Eritrea (89 percent) and Mali (89 percent). Kenya is also on the list.
The opponents call it "vacation cutting", I call it child abuse and the girls should be taken from these "parents".
This is not culture, this is a barbaric practice hiding hiding culture. These people should not be bringing such practices into any American countries, not into Australia or Hong Kong either.
US federal law has explicitly banned genital cutting since 1996 and you most certainly cannot transport an underage girl to one of those African countries to have her genital chopped off.
Most unfortunately, African immigrant families rarely speak out against it and do not know whom to turn to in a foreign (in this case USAnian) culture, and even more unfortunate, this barbaric practice is sometimes carried out in New York.
"At the center of this new network is Jaha Dukureh, 24, a Gambian immigrant who was cut twice, once as an infant in Gambia and again at age 15 in New York. A former Wells Fargo banker and a mother of three, she lives here in Atlanta. In February, she filed an online petition, urging President Obama to conduct a study of the issue.
In the UK, genital cutting is also on the rise. UK law enforcement agencies conducted an exercise at Heathrow to catch families sending their girls back to Africa for genital cutting
This is how they do it:
"Sometimes, a community member cuts just a portion of the clitoris. In the most extensive cases, the clitoris may be removed, the labia are sliced and brought together and a seal is created, leaving a small hole for urination and menstruation.
This is what one of the victim said:
"I had my female cut from me, my sensations stolen and discarded replaced with numbness and pain. My say in the matter? Negligible and disregarded."
Maybe Cestmoi can introduce to these parents lobotomy with a cricket bat.
