The Guardian has reported on a Sunday Times investigation into female genital mutilation (FGM) in the UK in which a doctor, a dentist and an alternative medical practitioner were reportedly filmed as they offered to arrange for the procedure to be carried out. We also learn that up to 100,000 young girls and women in the UK have undergone FGM.
In case you are not familiar with this illegal practice, the Guardian tells us that FGM is the "surgical removal of external genitalia and in some cases the stitching of the vaginal opening". According to the World Health Organization the practice only results in harm and up to 140 million women are currently living with the results of having their genitals butchered due to backward ass, oppressive beliefs.
The only way to stop this outrageous practice is to spread the word, to support charities like Forward, and to state clearly and loudly that FGM is morally repugnant and that anyone, anywhere who believes in or carries out the procedure is a first rate cunt.
Sponsored by people who think Andrew Lansley (tosser), the UK's health secretary, is onto another winner with his proposal that NHS staff in poorer parts of the country get paid less. Of course, an exception would be made for "highly paid managers".
