More than enough

June 25, 2013

This is Suhair al Bata’a.  She was thirteen last month when some insane people cut off portions of her genitals in the name of their religion.  Suhair al Bata’a’s blood pressure crashed, and she died.

It is common after genital mutilation for the family to throw a party.  I bet that Suhir’s death really let the helium out of their balloons.

Female genital mutilation has been outlawed in Egypt since 2008 (and yes, you SHOULD be thinking “Only since 2008?  It was legal in one of the more progressive nations in the Middle East until 2008?”) but in rural areas it is estimated that the incidence may still run as high as 75%.

Here’s a charming article on the subject.  For your reading pleasure, a nice Egyptian grandmother speaks with pride about how she has made sure all her granddaughters have portions of themselves hacked off at age 11.

For those who still perpetrate this repulsive and inhumane practice in the name of their twisted version of religion –

“IT’S ON!”

  1. It’s hideously fascinating the way Abrahamic religions (aond some others) have parasited sex and our sexual lives to gain a hold on us. Insane, yet consistent.
