Female Mutilation

 There is an issue of women’s body parts being removed. We have women adding body parts, we have women taking body parts away here in America by way of plastic surgery. However, in some parts of the world, it’s not such a rosy picture. Some women have their clitoris removed. Some do it willingly not understanding how it will affect them later in life, some don’t do it willingly. Some say this is violence against women, some say this is a religious/ cultural belief in certain parts of the world and that it should be respected. It is still changing your body in some way that is not natural and is not what or how you were born.

If male circumcision were as painful as what these women endure and if it affected men more, I somehow wonder if the issue would be stamped out more quickly?

  1. I believe women have the right choose whatever they want to choose.If they want to cut off their body parts let them.if they dont want to but they believe its part of their culture or belief and they want to stay true to their religion then its still their choose to stay true or not.Women are going to have to educate themselves because nobody else will.
