I was flabbergasted when I was reading about this practice I never ever heard of. As if FGM is not enough, now the young girls have to undergo this (too).
What I do not understand is why it is always the girls that are the victims and have to undergo the mutilations. This practice too is mutilation and should be stopped. I understand the concerns of the mothers and I understand that they want to avoid child preganancy but as far as I know, to make a child, you need two people: a woman and a man. Avoiding (child) pregnancy can be done by using several techniques. It is really time that men start taking responsibility of their own acts and grow up.
