So, guess what.
There is no actual Canadian tradition of splicing off the clitoris of little girls with dirty razor blades.
I know. Crazy right? So, if it's not a domestic issue, it's an import.
Why can't this be stopped? I'd like to know why these barbarians are still being let into Canada to mutilate children.
BTW: Shame on the evil, sinister, barbaric and horrific WOMEN especially who hold their daughters and granddaughters down to be mutilated. I vomit in their direction.
Here's how it all goes down:
"They were all about 7 years old when their mothers took them to a “cutter,” an older woman operating in a non-medical environment, such as a kitchen. The women were told to remove their underwear before the cutter swiped a razor at their clitorises."
"Two of the women the Star spoke with said they tried to run when they realized what was happening but they were held down, their legs forcefully spread by female elders."
"Luby Fidaali was 7 years old when her mother kept her home from school one morning and took her to someone she believed was a healer — an elderly woman who said prayers over her sore tummy from time to time when she was not feeling well."
"But when she got to the cutter’s house, Fidaali was told to sit on a small kitchen stool like those traditionally used to knead chapatis, she said, and was instructed to pull her legs apart."
"She glanced at the fire burning in a charcoal stove in the corner and didn’t see the cutter take out a razor blade. “Even when I think about it, it hurts,” she said recently, telling the story for only the second time in her life. She was instructed to sit near the stove and “take in the heat to help the healing.”
"Fidaali’s mother told her never to speak about her experience to anyone, including her father and siblings. She doesn’t begrudge her mother, she said, because she was simply “following societal norms in order to stay in the community.”
