Hypocritical outdated findings by so called "experts" on psychological disoders associated with FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION! FGM VICTIMS AND SURVIVORS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN TRAUMATIZED!YOU DARE MOCK US?
I find it hypocritical that so called "experts" have now discovered FGM causes psychological trauma or mental disorder, and they just found out by studying Iraq's women. Hey I have been saying this for over a decade that FGM causes high level of psychological trauma associated with PTSD!! African women survivors of FGM they deal with PTSD too and this causes lots of suicide , psychiatric disorders, mental illnesses, I work with African refugees everyday and in every state we have records of at-least 10 women every month admitted with PTSD related complexes ! Africa is the highest leading with mortality rate over 500,000 women die every year giving birth:((!! Majority of them suffer PTSD and are Fgm victims:((!! . So to the so called experts your findings are outdated, wasting precious money and time trying to add water with a cup in the ocean!!, it's simple common sense e.g "if a young girl was held down and then her genitals mutilated then left in a dark hut for weeks , unable to urinate with infection, tell me will her life be ever the same again? Will she be able to recover psychologically again? Will she be traumatized for the rest of her life? "experts" go do some research on that and surprise me!!
