FGM around the world

Doctors urge ‘compromise’ on female genital cutting

Western states should legally permit immigrant communities to surgically “nick” young girls’ vaginas as an alternative to genital mutilation, a pair of US gynaecologists argued in a hotly-challenged paper Tuesday.

Such a “compromise” could allow groups to honour cultural or religious prescripts while saving millions of girls from invasive and disfiguring genital slashing practised in some African and Middle Eastern cultures, the two doctors stated in the Journal of Medical Ethics.

“We are not arguing that any procedure on the female genitalia is desirable,” said Kavita Arora of the Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland and Allan Jacobs of Stony Brook University in New York state.

    they must change to adopt our ways
    not vice versa

  • BillyHW

    How ’bout we compromise in the sense that we kill every last satanic motherfucker that wants to mutilate the genitals of little girls (or refuses to even call the practice barbaric)?

  • Shebel

    Just a wee nick off the clit. No problem.

    Please explain why?

  • Alain

    This is another thing that is based on women being the property of men. It is done to prevent the woman from experience any pleasure during intercourse with the idea that it will prevent her from straying. In order to protect his property a man ensures the woman experiences no sexual pleasure and to make extra certain he hides her in a complete body bag even hiding the face. Yet the Western “progressives”/feminists see no problem here.

      Then again , there would be a certain , um, er , ah, safety net , if the man did not have to worry about if a woman was satisfied. Especially, the insatiable ones that just wear you out—

        try harder or use your tongue!
        there’s NEVER a reason to hurt a child!

  • Dana Garcia

    I’m guessing no doctor would suggest a surgical “nick” on male plumbing to please the barbarians.

  • How about this compromise – these physicians agree to give up their licenses until the merry month of Smarch?

    That’s a good compromise.

    • T.C.

      I like Billy’s compromise better…

    • You and your Smarch.

      • Think of all the holidays you can celebrate in Smarch: Licorice Day, Hug A Cactus Day…

      • Exile1981

        I loved that Simpsons episode….. Damn you Smarch!

        • Lousy Smarch….

            On a side note we are keepingbthe kids home from school tomorrow. Tomorrow is the Alberta school end bullying against lgbtxyz kids. To show your support for those snowflakes all kids must wear pink.

            Our local school sent a notice home about it monday, called every parent by phone today and then sent an email to the parents.

            ya like that.

          • DavidinNorthBurnaby

            Since nothing stops a bully like bullying everyone into wearing pink and marching in some damn parade. A bully needs a good shitkicking.

          • Exile1981

            Now if you fight back against a bully you get in trouble.

  • dukestreet

    Disgusting that they claim to practice medicine, while supporting unwarranted mutilation for multi-cult purposes. Witch doctors.now asked for medical opinions.
    Every doctor who supports this should have to experience it first, regardless of their sex.

  • simus1

    The “Doctors” are either bullshitters or they don’t know what they are talking about.

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    You first, docs. Just a little snip.

    • Kelly

      …and I get to do said “snipping”….with a rusty pocket knife!

  • Martin B

    Does “First, Do No Harm” ring a bell with these evil quacks?

    Legitimizing this utterly evil practice in any way, shape or form is evil. It blows my mind that someone can graduate from medical school and be incapable of comprehending this.

    • Blacksmith

      Do they still teach the “first, do no harm” thing in medical school? It doesn’t seem like it.

  • Kathy Prendergast

    What exactly makes these doctors think that “nicking” a girl’s genitalia (whatever the hell that means) would satisfy a culture that routinely slices everything right off and sews it shut?

    It’s also incorrect to say this is only performed in parts of the Middle East and Africa. It’s routine in Indonesia too.

    The mistake was in letting members of these groups that practice such disgusting torture and mutilation immigrate to Western countries. It’s not like we didn’t know what these barbarians do to women and girls. I first read (with horror and disbelief) about FGM back in the late 70s when I was still a teenager. Never in a million years would I have dreamed it would eventually become a problem in Western countries.

  • Xavier

    That will work as well as “Just the tip”.

  • ontario john

    Another victory for Heather Mallick and modern feminism. Maybe Michael Coren can tweet his support.

  • Kelly

    This shames me to know I went to Case and worked there as an electrician for 16 yrs…how sad! Yet, when 9/11 happened I recall the muz students in the quad celebrating til the police and then FBI showed up…some of those students didn’t come back after that, pissed a lot of us off!

  • Hard Little Machine

    Western liberals are funny that way. On THE DAY one of our liberal nations decides to outlaw the Bris, they will openly welcome FGM.
