God likes genital mutilation

Indonesia’s Health ministry just legalised female genital mutilation. The Director of Womens’ Health admits there is no medical benefit, stating that the purpose is to support Islamic tradition (or possibly other superstitions).

She also rejected the idea that female circumcision was a form of genital mutilation.

“Circumcising is merely scratching a piece of skin,” she said.

From Australian paper Herald Sun via Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

The tradition of mutilating the genitals of girls and boys is probably older than most religions. But nowadays, it is upheld only by the religious, following the brilliant logic that the whole idea was conceived by a magical space daddy, and not an ancient tradition inherited from our primitive ancestors thousands of years ago.
