Pope calls female genital mutilation a crime that must stop

Pope Francis called female genital mutilation a “crime” on Sunday and said the fight for women’s rights, equality and opportunity must continue for the good of society.

“How is it that today in the world we cannot stop the tragedy of infibulation of young girls?” he asked, referring to the ritual cutting of a girls’ external genitalia. “This is terrible that today there is a practice that humanity isn’t able to stop. It’s a crime. It’s a criminal act!”

I'm surprised.

He's a commie and often sides with misogynistic cultures and tyrannical political regimes
Eh, nevermind...

He went on to say... "Why don't they just rape little boys instead? There is no crime in sucking 11 year old peepee, we have been doing it for years"

Infibulation also means sewing the vagina closed!!!!!  So basically they can't pee or get rid of menstrual blood.

"Immediate complications include severe pain, shock, haemorrhage, tetanus or infection, urine retention, ulceration of the genital region and injury to adjacent tissue, wound infection, urinary infection, fever, and septicemia. Haemorrhage and infection can be severe enough to cause death.

Long-term consequences include complications during childbirth, anaemia, the formation of cysts and abscesses, keloid scar formation, damage to the urethra resulting in urinary incontinence, dyspareunia (painful sexual intercourse), sexual dysfunction, hypersensitivity of the genital area and increased risk of HIV transmission, as well as psychological effects.

Infibulation, or type III FGM (female genital mutilation), may cause complete vaginal obstruction resulting in the accumulation of menstrual flow in the vagina and uterus. Infibulation creates a physical barrier to sexual intercourse and childbirth. An infibulated woman therefore has to undergo gradual dilation of the vaginal opening before sexual intercourse can take place. Often, infibulated women are cut open on the first night of marriage (by the husband or a circumciser) to enable the husband to be intimate with his wife. At childbirth, many women also have to be cut again because the vaginal opening is too small to allow for the passage of a baby."  Then the sew her back up and for her next child she has to go through the whole dilation, cutting, all over again and then be sewn back up again.  It is ridiculous.  And if the cutting tools are used on more than one girl, AIDS can be transmitted.
