Female genital enhancement is the latest African craze to hit Ireland and boy has it taken off. The demand is incredible and everybody is having it done this season. The problem is there are always some stuck in the mud begrudgers who want to ruin everyone’s fun and as usual the Journal is leading the charge.
ALMOST 3,000 GIRLS living in Ireland could be at risk of undergoing female genital mutilation.
FGM refers to the ritual cutting or removal of some or all of the external female genitalia. The practice is most common in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and carried out for cultural or religious reasons.
Unicef data states that at least 200 million girls and women in 30 countries worldwide have undergone the extremely painful procedure.
Three women’s rights leaders were in Ireland this week to discuss how they are trying to stop FGM – also referred to as cutting – in their region.
An ActionAid study carried out in 2016 found that 2,639 girls living in Ireland may currently be at risk of undergoing the practice. Thousands more have undergone FGM before moving to Ireland.
Cholongosia was respected in her community because she was a cutter, but she started to have serious doubts about the practice.
I was called a hero in public but in the evening, when I was alone in the house with my husband, the blood kept on haunting me. It felt like my hands were shaking, the sound of the girls screaming would affect me at night. Over time it had this psychological effect on me.
Her husband was supportive when she told him about her worries and encouraged her to stop cutting.
She finally decided to stop the practice after coming into contact with the ActionAid programme in Kongelai, where she and other women were taught about the negative impact FGM has on girls, children’s rights, and legal issues with the practice.
Severe pain and infection
Immediate complications from FGM include severe pain, shock, haemorrhaging, tetanus, infection, fever and septicemia.
You know the old saying “beauty bears a pinch”
I am absolutely shocked and appalled at the Journal for writing this culturally insensitive, biased and racist article.
Female genital enhancement as it is more precisely known is a wonderful practice made possible in Ireland through the blessings of diversity.
In this instance we can see that diversity truly is a strength. After all without the wonders of Third World diversity Irish girls would not have access to the expertise required to enhance that particular area.
My understanding is that Waxperts are going to be introducing FG enhancement as part of their services and that Caroline Hirons and beaut.ie swear by it.
Believe me it’s only a matter of time before those slow coaches in TV3 catch on and feature some segments showing an Irish woman experiencing the very minor procedure on daytime TV.
