Female circumcision to prevent immorality in Africa done without anesthesia


Young girls in Africa are mutilated as a part of their tradition believing that this practice impedes depravity.

There's a question that seems to be just an ordinary one, but many young women in Africa fear about because they know exactly what it means. It's cruel and terrifying -"Has your daughter fed the ants?" It's their way of asking if the little girl has already been circumcised.

Millions of young girls in Africa are forced to undergo Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Unwillingly, the girls are brought and taken to a "woman cutter".

The picture below shows how a young woman is forced to get mutilated. Her mom and relatives fasten her head, arms, chest, and legs as the woman cutter open her thighs forcefully. To be able to hold the girl's private part firmly, the woman cutter put millet flour on it. And after the circumcision, she uses the millet flour again to stop the bleeding.

Anna-Moora Ndege, a woman cutter, used to create a makeshift flat blade with a flattened six-inch nail. But now, she cuts a young girl's genital using an ordinary blade without anesthesia. This Female Genital Mutilation is usually performed in unhygienic places. Traditionally,they put the detached part of the female genitals on the ground for the Safari ants to take away.

Waris Dirie, a supermodel who suffered from this same practice when she was just 13 years old, actively makes a crusade in opposition to this.

She said that she was mutilated as a little nomad girl in the Somali desert. She almost died from blood loss, shock and an infection after this brutal torture. She suffered from nightmares, flashbacks and chronic pain.

She wrote what she exactly experienced in her autobiography.

It was written that she felt her flesh, her genitals, being cut away. She heard the sound of the dull blade sawing back and forth through her skin. She said that it's like somebody was slicing through meat of your thigh, or cutting off your arm, besides this is the most sensitive part of your body. She passed out. And the worst part of it had just begun when she woke up. She said that the Killer Woman had piled a stack of thorns from the acacia tree next to her. She used them to pierce holes in her skin. Then, she poke a strong white thread through the holes for stitching.

FGM has three forms and the third is the most extreme one for this is done using a razor, glass, knife, scissors, or blade. The labia stump are sewn together. And a very tiny hole left by the cutter for the urine to pass through. This unhygienic practice leaves a permanent physical, mental and emotional damage to those who experienced it.

There's only an exact season when these young girls can undergo circumcision. Wherever they are, whether they are in Africa or not, when that season comes, their parents will bring them back to Africa to undergo this horrible practice. However, if the girl dies from this practice, their parents will take the blame.

This practice is done is Africa traditionally believing that participating is this very old tradition helps the family keep their status in the traditional community. They also believe that the circumcised girls guarantee being faithful because the sexual organ is not there anymore. If it's not cut, they will be a slut looking for men here and there like a prostitute. This practice is treated like a very important festival to celebrate. They said that it's celebrated like Christmas.

On the other hand, there are people opposing this practice and they are existing one by one. They want to make campaigns to save lives of those young girls suffering from this horrible practice. They said that they want to become their voices to stop this cruelty.
