It's been a while since I last posted, as life keeps me busy. I still don't have much time to write, but I just saw this picture making the rounds on Facebook, and I decided I'd make a quick post.
It always pisses me off to hear people write off circumcision as "just a little snip" and the foreskin as "just a little piece of skin." Well, I'd like to see them cut off "just a little piece of skin" this size off a little baby girl and away with it...
Just as a point of reference...
If we are to believe a certain blogger from South East Asia who had her baby girl "sunat" to fulfill social obligations, pictured below is the severed clitoris of a little baby girl.
Original Text: "It happens so fast, with a bismillah and a snip,
a little bit blood and that's it, Zahra dah sunat!
She didn't cry even a drop, in fact giggling2 lagi.
I guess it wasn't painful for her, alhamdulillahh.."
(The blog post has been now taken down. Gee I wonder why...)
Come to think about it, you know what else pisses me off?
When people say "Don't you dare compare male and female circumcision. They're not the same!"
Ch' Yah! You're right! They're not.
