The World That Progressives Wanted…

Leyla Hussein, 32, said many were scared to speak out against FGM because they were worried about criticising another culture.

Congratulations, Leyla, you now live in the world the progressives built! Ain’t it grand?

Approaching shoppers with the petition supporting FGM, she told them she wanted to protect her “culture, traditions and rights” .

In only 30 minutes 19 people signed it with some saying they believed FGM was wrong but because it was part of Ms Hussein’s culture they would add their names. Only one person refused to sign.

No doubt plans are afoot to track down that one last hold-out and send him for reconditioning…

Ms Hussein, who is co-founder of the anti-FGM charity Daughters of Eve, is calling on the Home Office to take responsibility for drawing up an action plan to eliminate FGM in this country.

How about we start by eliminating the sort of people who support FGM from our country?


Oh, well, just a thought…

    So we have a non-white, non-European, possibly Muslim, and apparently politically liberal woman criticising political correctness. Things are looking up!

    What’s FGM?

      It’s a vile practice involving partial or full removal of the clitoris and clitoral hood. Sometimes the vulvae are stitched together to reduce the vaginal opening to prevent penetrative sex (until a painful wedding night when they are literally ripped apart).

      If you think that’s appalling, consider it’s done in some primitive rural African areas without anaesthetic or antiseptic – many die horribly from infection.

    Call me a cynic but I’ll just bet Ms. Hussein is all in favour of Britains being scared to criticise another culture when it comes to the issues of burkha and sharia.

    As to the barbaric mutilation of FGM? I favour General Napiers response, to paraphrase and remodel what he said:

    “Be it so. This FGM is your custom; prepare the knives. But my nation has also a custom. When men mutilate women we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the the young girl is scarred for life. Let us all act according to national customs.”

    Although to be honest, instead of hanging, I favour a more ‘eye for an eye’ punishment. Cut off a young girls clitoris, we cut off your penis – let’s see how quickly the practice stops if that was the rule of the land.

      It is the national custom of Britain (it is not alone) to kow-tow to everyone else’s customs now.

      This technique of getting people to sign a petition that you do not believe in, in order to show them up, is best done on video. Several have appeared on you Tube (look’em up yesen) where Obama’s policies and quotations are presented as Bush’s/Romney’s/Mao’s/Stalin’s/even Hitler’s, and of course all the Obama supporters reject them vehemently. The looks on their faces and their back-peddaling when the correct attributions to Obama are shown is a sight to see.
