They are, generally, Africans (although Arabs and general followers of Islam are also usually pretty keen) and I can't say that I'm tremendously surprised that these pig-ignorant, primitive fuckwits are still mutilating women for absolutely no reason other than, possibly, some stinking insecurity that, should these women enjoy sex, then they will become cheating sluts.
As I have pointed out before, there's no excuse for it: absolutely none at all. These people are quite simply the fucking dregs of humanity. And you know what, no matter the problems with our society, I am no cultural relativist: because though we have problems, at least we aren't removing the sexual organs of babies.
And just to drive the point home, courtesy of Trixy, here's a video (and a petition for you to sign) of some barbarian fuckheads cutting off the clitoris and labia minora of a young girl without anaesthetic (and remember, chaps, there's as many nerve endings in the clitoris as there are in the entirety of your penis).
And here is UKIP's Press Release on the subject.
This evil practice must stop
On International Women's Day, the practice of female genital mutilation was denounced by Rachel Oxley, Vice-Chairman of the UK Independence Party who called for more effective action over the issue. "Over 3 million young girls a year are still being tortured and abused through the practice of female genital mutilation; it is on the increase in the UK".
According to the leading NGO working on the subject in the UK, Forward (Foundation for Women's Health Research & Development) upwards of 6,000 girls a year in Britain are at threat of this barbaric act.
Miss Oxley said, "Though this practice has been against the law in Britain since 1985, and it is now illegal for a girl to be taken abroad to be mutilated, the problem is getting worse.
There have been almost no convictions and very few charges because the authorities are scared that they will be accused of racism. That fear destroys these girls' lives and must end".
The UK Independence Party is utterly committed to equality before the law, and this transcends, religious cultural and ethnic background.
Personally, I think that the men performing this operation should have their wedding tackle tied to a block and beaten continually with car aerials for days and days and days.
You don't hear about this shit from fucking GAP year students, do you?
