One of the many horrific 'customs' that still exists on this planet is female genital mutilation. An activism group has set up a non-profit organization hysterically called: Clitoraid
It is a crime against humanity that today, in this so called enlightened 21st century, women in under-developed countries are subjected by force to participate in the sex trades, are denied common freedoms as we know and enjoy in the west, and in certain cultures, are slaves to barbaric practices such as clitoral mutilation in the name of religion and, moreover, male dominance.Damn right. You know, this is one of those things that we can universally agree on, I think. This is like child hunger and making sure everyone has safe water to drink. This should be a universally condemned issue... but its still going on. But Clitoraid is trying to do something. Theyre trying to help.
According to a barbaric tradition that still persists in some parts of the world, female children are forced to undergo an excruciatingly painful procedure through which the clitoris is excised. The act is typically carried out without anesthesia and is often performed by female relatives, themselves earlier victims of the practice.
An estimated 135 million women worldwide are victims of this detestable tradition. Until now, with the damage done, little could be done to help them achieve the sexual pleasure known to the rest of humanity.
...help as many women as possible to regain their sense of pleasure and founded Clitoraid, a private non-profit organization with the aim to sponsor those women who want to have their clitoris rebuilt.Sweet! This is a fantastic idea! I mean, cant you picture the people who started this? Quirky, fun, feminists, who arent just mad-- theyre mad and doing something about it! My kind of people!
“Adopt a Clitoris” program was designed not to help just a few women, but to finance the construction of a unique, sanitary and specialized medical unit in which women of all nationalities and religions could have their clitoral sensation “rebuilt.”
We can all help. we can support our sisters, and Adopt a Clitoris!
You can imagine my surprise (since you will be too) when I found out who started this charity. The Raelians.
Well knock me over with a feather.
Wonder how much proselytizing goes along with this? No matter the answer, I cant honestly say I wouldnt rather have the Raelian Missionaries around than the Christians. I dont know what to think about this. Like I said, genital mutilation should be a universal "NO!"... so why dont we have a world, secular organization like Clitoraid? Or do we, and I just dont know about it?
