The second Ottoman Empire continues its march to the quaint silence of feminists:
The police move was revealed as a parliamentary hearing was warned that large numbers of girls aged as young as six are being sent from London to Africa for genital surgery which leaves them with painful and life-changing injuries.One interesting point of note: FGM is usually performed by women on their daughters, much in the same way that MGM was traditionally performed by men on their sons.
It came as the Met disclosed that it is close to bringing the first British prosecution for female genital mutilation after receiving nearly 150 reports of cases involving girls in the capital already “cut” or at risk of surgery.
Nimco Ali was taken to Somalia for female genital mutilation by her mother when she was seven. The procedure was performed in a hospital and to this day the smell of Dettol still gives Ms Ali flashbacks.
The civil servant, 29, from west London, said: “It’s bizarre because my mother is a feminist, believes women should be educated and independent.
Ms Ali, a founder of the Daughters of Eve FGM campaign group, added: “London is now the capital of Europe where FGM is happening. It’s happening in people’s houses, clinics, with struck-off doctors.”
I also notice the lack of outraged screams by the UK feminists, even while they try to cover up the fact that men and women have massively disparate sentencing for equal crimes.
But then, we all know that if it can't be used to blugdeon men or doesn't fit the progressive agenda, they will happily let crap happen to women without blinking an eye.
