Reader comment on item: Female Desire and Islamic Trauma

Submitted by salkey (United States), May 4, 2012 at 07:14

The practices of female genital mutilation that are to this day carried out in Muslim communities, especially in Africa, are a testament to the outrageous intolerance of the Muslim faith towards women, not entrusting them with ownership of their own bodies and seemingly mistrusting their ability to control their urges. Or is it that it is not acceptable for women to even have such feelings. These kind of practices are not appropriate in 2012 world and I hope that some of these women can access the internet and learn that what is being done to them is an outdated and barbaric tradition.
