FGM advocated in Canada

Here, from the CBC, Feb 24, 2016:

Female genital mutilation should be legalized in some forms, doctor says

DR. ALLAN JACOBS: What we’re proposing is that forms of general female rituals that do not cause harm, be permitted under the law, and that people who engage in genital mutilation be encouraged to do these minor procedures instead of mutilation, so that the sort of thing that happened to Ms. Amed does not happen to anybody else.

Sure. To prevent back-alley FGMs, right?

AMT: And so what kind of procedure are you talking about?

DR. ALLAN JACOBS: We’re talking principally about a procedure in which the outside of the vagina, the vulva, is nicked with a lancet or a needle quickly drawing blood sterilely with anaesthetic cream. This is something that has been proposed in the past that was, it was advocated as an alternative to mutilation by the American Academy of Pediatrics which withdrew that statement under political pressure.

And so when it turns out that the child has really been sliced, diced, and hacked, what does Dr. Jacobs suggest we do then? Create more work for social workers by charging her parents? Not likely.

She’s sort of like the thousands of live aborted babies left to die in soiled utility closets. The media of record don’t talk about such “dreaded complications.”

Reality check: Never give to “girl child” charities that blather about “empowerment” and “education” but won’t talk about female genital mutilation or sex selection abortions. I do not know what they are doing with the money, but it doesn’t matter.

Are our local children’s hospitals surreptitiously mutilating girls even now?

Hre is a decorous explanation from WHO about what is cut off.

Secular morality actually means no concept of the value of human beings at all.

  • You can bet it goes on in Canada. Everywhere Islam has taken root its barbaric customs are found.

      Well…there’s also plenty of brown folks anywhere you go in Canada. So…

    It should be mandatory for CBC employees.

      If they thought it would bring them career enhancement and a glamours lifestyle, the line would be out the door and around the block.

    All of man’s gods are man made. Any morality ascribed to any god or religion must then have its origins in ordinary man.

    I think that in the interests of diversity, FGM should be enforced, for all female government employees. After all, why should observant muslims be required to interact with women they consider impure and sexually rapacious?

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    I have very mixed feelings.
    On one level, I just don’t care about them, and that is for all host of reasons, but I’ll get into two of those reasons.
    It sounds heartless, but you shouldn’t care about them either.

    First, I can easily see that this will be used as a means and an excuse to admit more immigrants from these third world hellholes on “humanitarian grounds” and to prevent our deportation of these people back to their homelands by chaining this fear to the immigrants “right to a family life”. I can easily see it being argued that not only can we not deport the girl’s family, but instead we would be pressured into allowing more of them into our countries.

    Second, every dime, every cent of money, and every second of caring diverts time and money away from our own domestic issues that desperately need our time, attention, and our tax money. There are people much more deserving than any of these immigrant families, even the FGM’d girls.

    The only really good reason to speak up would be to draw attention to how barbaric Islam really is, and use that as a means to make the practice of Islam more difficult in the west.
    No FGM, no halal food, no time for prayers toward Mecca, no accommodations period.

    So, that’s why I think the way that I do on this issue.

      “No FGM, no halal food, no time for prayers toward Mecca, no accommodations period.”
      Sounds good, but how about we just say no muzzies, period, and leave it at that?

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        I’m all for that too but unless we have an overnight sea change in how we treat immigrants, then we will just have to start out with baby-steps and simply make our civilization as unattractive for them as possible.
        We can do it, and a lot sooner than most of us imagined.
        Just think of a year ago, when all of the things that Trump is saying today, while being a front runner in a US Presidential race, was only said in these forums.
        Just dwell on that thought for a moment.
        If present trends continue, we will be the ones on the ascendency.

        • DavidinNorthBurnaby

          I give them filthy looks and refuse to get out of the way when they do the fill-the-sidewalk thing. I wait until another check stand opens at WalMart if a raghead is running the next open and let someone else go past me. If I walk into a Tim’s and they’re all wearing headscarves I turn and leave. I just wish I was 40 years younger and built like the guy who wears a “Fuck Islam” Tshirt around Brentwood Mall sometimes.

          • k1962

            Oh, you’ve seen someone wearing that at Brentwood? Cool. Many years ago I went to their food court for lunch and we stopped at a Mediterranean place that I think closed. I saw that it said Halal and I told her that was like Muslim kosher and I wasn’t going to eat that meat or give them my money, so we left for IHOP.

          • DavidinNorthBurnaby

            There’s still a Pita place where everything’s halal muck. I’d starve before I ate there.

          • k1962

            Haven’t seen it, but rarely eat at food courts. Just noticed when walking by that it wasn’t in the spot it was in years ago. Maybe they moved or it’s a new place. I will never eat there either.

    It’s about time to draw a line in the sand.

  • Kathy Prendergast

    Nowhere do these “doctors” advocating this so-called legal “genital nicking” show that it would be in any way preferable to parents who are determined to cut their girl children in the way their sick culture deems appropriate.

    Unlike these so-called doctors, I consider myself a true realist about FGM. It is a practice of some cultures that is going to be virtually impossible to eradicate even within the next century. We in the West have always known it occurs, and rightfully have always considered it abhorrent, but accepted that there is very little we could do about it, other than give aid to such countries in the hope that it might be used toward furthering people’s education and eventually getting the message to them that this is a stupid practice that should go the way of foot binding in China (an equally horrific and barbaric practice which disappeared within a single generation, in the early 20th century, without any foreign aid, new laws, or massive educational programs…it disappeared not because of Communism which came considerably later, but because of westernization and modernization. China is China; it’s not Africa.)

    So why, then, did we import massive numbers of people from these very cultures, such as Somalia that are known to routinely practice FGM? At least 90 percent of girls in that hellhole of a country are mutilated. Did we think they would stop doing it once they hit our shores? Why have we made what used to be strictly a problem of another culture in another place, OUR problem? Seriously, would we have allowed millions of Chinese into Western countries if their women and girls were still hobbling around painfully on bandaged, broken, and deformed feet? They should not be here and should never have been allowed here to begin with.

    FGM – the majority of Canadians have no idea what FGM is – they probably think it’s a group of unhappy Chevy owners.

    I wouldn’t worry too much about this. Judy Rebick and Libby Davies will be on it in no time flat.
