The Dehumanizing Practice Of Female G*nital Mutilation
As human beings, we are built to feel some certain way, mentally, psychologically and biologically, I mean hormones are there for a reason. But sometimes instincts push us to do things that make us feel like we're protecting ourselves for a better future or path while actually we're endangering ourselves.
Female g3nital mutilation is a traditional practice in some cultures of partially removing the external g*nitalia of girls and young women for none orthopaedic reasons. This practice is Commons in Asia, Africa the middle east and so many underdeveloped countries.
This act is done so as to reduce the s*xual urges of a young woman to prevent her from excessive promiscuity and to prepare her for her husband.
This practice has ravaged deep in us that due to Nigeria's population, it has the highest number of Female G*nital Mutilation (FGM) cases worldwide.
This unhealthy traditional practice is being inflicted on women worldwide and definitely not taken seriously but is actually one of the leading causes of sexually transmitted diseases, yeast infections and many more due to the had of unsterilized equipments used in cutting.
This act endangers the life of women worldwide and there should be a means and an end to this if there is enough sensitization about the risks involved.
