It is so disappointing to have people who don't care what happens to other people who don't look like them, or different colours , FGM is declared as a human rights violation on girls and women because it's evil and for those of us survive it we know. Just because it didn't happen to you or your people it does not give you the right to interfere with our fight against it because we are fighting for other innocent girls and women at risk trying to save them not to undergo what we dreaded!!! so women haters or selfish people saving a girl or protecting a girl who does not look like yours or speak your language from mutilation is it SEXIST? When a girl is mutilated at any age that makes them viable for childhood marriage to older men, if girls are not mutilated they don't get married off and so if we can stop FGM we are stopping rape( childhood marriage) and sexual slavery. I have heard enough selfish egoistic characters wining because I am fighting hard with other survivors around the world to get tougher laws on FGM and you call me a "SEXIST"? and our HR 2221 GIRLS PROTECTION ACT OF 2011 a "SEXIST" bill? are you out of your mind? do you know how it feels to be held down, gagged on a tree then with no warning your genitals are chopped off ,then you are sew shut together?, all this time you are screaming and no one is there to help?,then your legs are bound together for days and you can't urinate? do you have any idea? I DON'T THINK SO! Because if you had any you will never accuse ANTI FGM activists or law makers as SEXIST!!! Leave us alone with our cause and mind your own business if you can't support us. Thank you US Congress for our HR 2221 Girls protection act of 2011 this will rescue over 280,000 American -immigrant girls at risk thank you to all of you who have Cosponsored and I believe it will be in the Senate soon and next year it will be inacted into law , thank you so much MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA.
