    As a temporary solution to little girls being subjected to excruciating pain, long term problems, etc. I really love it when people argue about the cultural preservation of this act. What the *m*therf*cking *uck :steam: It's absolutely barbaric. Uhm, this isn't western imperialism, this is very, very basic rights as a child, as a woman, as a breathing person.

    I understand how it is difficult to eliminate the problem, however, and that it will take time esp. in countries with no resources to push the law into effect. So in the meantime, using a skilled doctor would be a better option than letting your grandmother do it with a piece of glass. But in impoverished areas where it is I'd assume more dominant, it wouldn't change anything.

    It's funny...throughout history, countries have heartlessly colonized weaker countries left and right and don't give a shit for indigenous cultures. Now in the modern age, we don't colonize openly anymore, and we are letting this slip because we don't want to be insensitive and politically incorrect. WTF.

    The US have just allowed this very thing. Bigger question is what do you think about that? Anyhoo, I hope this proposal is not allowed.

    Legally preformed is better than illegally preformed for reasons of health, but not preformed at all would be signifigantly better

    but suffice it to say that my general feeling on this matter gives my avatar greater significance..
