The Dehumanizing Practice Of Female G*nital Mutilation

By - - [ Health ]

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.

Any views on FGM?

yeah I have been hearing about this female genital mutilation since I was very young not until when I grew up and became an adult did I know the meaning of it and as I figured out the meaning and its meaning and its use also I was disgusted and I was like why would somebody try to do this the person might say they have a good cause but no you can teach the girl on how to maintain sexual purity and everybody has choices they should make because this exposes girls generally females to a lot of diseases

FGM is a very dangerous practice which sadly is still being practiced in a lot of places in Nigeria, and the claim that it makes the woman not to be promiscuous is not true, research conducted shows that women who were circumcised still can be promiscuous, awareness should be done in rural areas and it should later be made a crime

FGM has for long been a matter that need urgency in Africa at large. This practice is unhealthy and unethical to female. 

Am still wondering what concerns promiciousity with mutilation of the g3nitals? It's so unrelated. Instinct and superstition took deep root in our fathers and forefathers and that believe has been transferred to this generation. And as such,  it has taken deep root in us too. 

Public sensitization about the risk effect of g3nital mutilation should be make aware to the public. And this bondage called practice should be discouraged and abolished in Africa.

Female g3ntile mutilation is a cultural practice in some parts of the state. From this view we all know so many dangerous cultural practice such as FGM have been abandoned as a result of globalization and civilization. globalization is a process through which all these negative cultural practices will be eroded.

I seriously don't see the reason for the practice of FGM. Yes, the idea is to reduce ladies urge for sex, so as to curb prematital sex. But this same practice is exposing ladies to a lot of disease, it is very bad to keep on with it. When a practice is doing more harm than good, why engage in it further? I believe a ladies urge for sex is dependent on the way she is being brought up. And the FGM can also make a married woman deprive her husband's sex life. Its a two way thing. I hope the practice can be stopped with immediate effect.

This practise should be put to stop, it has been said severally that it is inhumane to allow a young female go through such pain .Some may even die because of it. And the reasons for doing ain't good enough. I mean how has it prevented promiscuity over the years??

Too bad!!! I think we need sensitization to enlighten the public about the dangers associated with this. It's an old practice by our fore father's with their own reasons for doing that. We're now in jet age or computer age. We should no tolerate or encourage it in our time.

Some do it under the excuse of female circumscision. This is part of the customs and traditions that must be imminently exterminated. It's totally unacceptable and not human. Thanks for the write up and the awareness. It's really annoying

Fgm is an isolated case...male patriarchy is the tree under which it hides. A woman is subjected to such wicked act, just to subjugate her not to desire much sex! Isn't that crazy!? And when such women marry. The so called husvands will go cheating because she has been violated unnecessarily with her labia deformed.

The FGM practice has also led to the spread of wide range of diseases. This occurs when the tool used to mutilate an infected person is used on another person. The people that do the practice are always careless and used to forget to sterilize the tool before using it on another person. This has led to the spread of unknown body infections and diseases. Therefore, this practice should be abolished.

Yes have heard of FGM ,but i think it was done in the ancient times because it actually had benefits ,it helps in reducing unwanted pregnancies ,and it worked well for them but I think in this modern days that we are now ,it isn't supported by people ,though I too don't support such .therefore I think it should be stopped totally in our world today

According to World Health Organization, Female Genital Mutilation, FMG as it is fondly abbreviated, is a way female gender are dehumanized and made to pay for what they didn't cause. Apartments from the fact that it causes unbearable pains, it can makes mensuration painful and make child birth unnecessarily a bitter experience. Experts explained that it has no health benefit whatsoever unlike the male circumcision that prevents bacteria invasion, this, i.e FGM allows incestation. Lastly, it is not Biblically right. Bible did not write it anywhere and remember, as it was in the beginning...

Those that practice his act failto understand that these women will even be more promiscuous because the clitoris that is meant to make them climax has been scraped off. Also the scars left behind makes vginal delivery very difficult because of the inability of the vaginal walls to stretch thereby leading to prolonged labor. Vesicovaginal fistula also becomes another huge challenge their victims face. Female genital mutilation is a no no.

It is so sad that this practice is still ongoing. FGM is something that the world leaders need to address. This common practice has made some women lost many chances and great opportunities.

It pains my heart to know or hear that people still practice the female g*nital mutilation. Girls out there are suffering what they were not even aware of. Some people do not even know the effects of what they are practicing.There are effects like

  • Severe pain, it causes severe pains to the girl in her sensitive parts
  • Excess bleeding
  • Menstrual pain, when she starts seeing her period, she goes through very severe pains.
  • Infections
  • Death. It can lead to death during the process or after some time.

So i'll advice that anyone or if you know someone who does this, should please stop it and save innocent girls life

Female genital mutilation is a practice that has been in existence for long especially in Africa in their rural places and I believe awareness can make them stop this because it is fine due to ignorance and false beliefs in tradition

I think the people who started this process (FGM) had a motive be it wrong or right. But the world is developing and advancing. As a result of this advancement and research, it is proven to be dangerous and the world should stand against it.

I have done a little investigation in my area to find out that, ignorance is the highest cause of this crime against humanity. Most mothers in their minds are helping their children(FEMALE), so they see nothing wrong with it. Even now a new means has been deviced since cutting is almost out, Now what they do is to massage the hyme with petroleum products like Vaseline most of them even use powder.

I onced watched a documentary about it sometime ago and it wasn't nice at all. The old woman that was in charge was even using the same blade for the process. Its really sad to think people still do this dangerous and dehumanizing practice. I think its just ignorance that have kept them in the dark about these things and they should be enlightened. This needs stop.

It causes a lot I'd damage to the female. It in most cases cause them to be barrel. It also enhance the spread of diseases which leads to early grave, unhealthy life, loss of home, broken marriage and increases rate of death from depression.
