One of the reasons

Understanding why people still mutilate their family members is one of the keys to solve this problem. This doesn't mean that once we understand the why we need to agree or approve it. It is just the first step in the fight to eradicate the practice of FGM.

"A larger clitoris resembling a small penis may have been the cause of female genital mutilation in many African traditions to keep young girls from being male and female at the same time.

My investigation into the whole part brought me to find out what the old Sebei woman in Bugerere Uganda told me. In the old times when girls were checked for adulthood while reaching puberty, they found out that the girls had a penis like creature on top of their Vagina`s something that made the elders think that the female was abnormal. Having two organisms these days is a tough thought in our modern world. And though tiny and some invisible, the truth is that one cannot dispute the fact that many women have a little male looking part hidden inside them."
