As U.S. Muslim Population Rises, So Does Female Genital Mutilation in America – Never Prosecuted

By Debbie Schlussel

As America’s Muslim population has risen, so have the numbers of female genital mutilations (FGM)–the barbaric, primarily Muslim practice which is basically a clitorectomy and is designed to forever give a woman pain when she has sex. As I already told you, the American Academy of Pediatrics already gave its approval to FGM, as did a U.S.-based website that approves scientific academic papers. Plus the American Anthropological Association held a debate on whether FGM was really so bad or unacceptable. So, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. Plus U.S. law enforcement authorities never make arrests and/or prosecute FGM (the feds never do, and there is only one state criminals case). Congrats, America, the barbarism of the Middle East is now in full force here.

The ancient, brutal practice of female genital mutilation (FGM), once considered primarily a problem of the developing world, is a growing threat to girls and women in the United States, according to a new report.

The United States has longstanding laws against the practice of FGM on U.S. soil and in January, passed a federal law against sending young women outside the country for so-called “vacation cutting”. However, girls living in America increasingly are at risk of the procedure both at home and abroad, according to research by Sanctuary for Families.

The New York City-based non-profit organisation, which specialises in gender-based violence, said up to 200,000 girls and women in the United States are at risk of FGM and that the number is growing.


“People in the United States think that FGM only happens to people outside of the United States, but in all actuality, people here all over the country have been through FGM,” said Jaha, 23, formerly from Gambia and now a survivor and advocate against FGM.

“Kids that were born in this country are taken back home every summer and undergo this procedure,” she was quoted as saying in the report.

The study cited analysis of data from the 2000 census that found between 1990 and 2000 the number of girls and women in the United States at risk of the procedure – which involves the partial or total removal of external female genitalia – increased by 35 percent.

Most prevalent in immigrant African and Middle Eastern communities, FGM generally originates in the belief by some cultures that it preserves a girl’s virginity before marriage and discourages her from promiscuity after she is wed. In many communities, a girl is deemed unfit for marriage if she has not undergone FGM.

The report said FGM has been performed in the United States by health care providers who support FGM or do not want to question families’ cultural practices. . . . The United Nations last December called for a global ban on FGM, but, as with laws in the United States, implementation is extremely difficult and, to date, prosecutions have been rare.

The United States has had a law against FGM since 1996 and 20 states have passed their own statutes. But, according to the report, as of 2012, there have been no prosecutions under federal law, and only one criminal case has been brought forward under a state statute.

As I noted, the Muslims in America are not unique nor in any way different from Muslims in Africa or Saudi Arabia or anywhere else. It’s just the irrelevant (to them) matter of borders. And they’ve brought this barbarism inside our borders, where it is, predictably, increasing.

And it’s only gonna get worse.

We’ve already had their hijackings and beheadings on our shores. And, yet, America still sleeps. Why should we be surprised that FGM is now accepted here, too?

Today, their daughters by force. Tomorrow, yours?

What really amazes me is that the Sandra Flukes of the world and other assorted “feminist” hags (the View, Naomi Wolf, Gloria Steinem, etc) never mention this. It never is reported on any news programs. Maybe it would be more of an issue if more people were aware of it. I would think this issue would be more important than free birth control for privileged middle aged college students. Besides, aren’t they always telling us how repressive Christianity is for not having women or gay priests? I’m sure having transgenders in the military is much more of an important issue.

jerry doegen on March 26, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    You’re a bit factually challenged, mate. Many feminists, especially columnist Katha Pollitt of The Nation, openly decry FGM and demand human-rights group investigations. Gloria Steinem at least 30 years ago wrote a much-quoted article, “The International Crime of Female Genital Mutilation.”

    Instead of seizing upon the latest opportunity to denounce “liberal hypocrites,” you would do well to consult the literature already out there.

    Seek on March 27, 2013 at 1:05 pm

      Fool, you have to dredge through 30 years of records to find one or two essays against this.

      Compared to the media and feminazi outrage over Rush Limbaugh’s appropriate comments about Sandra Fluke, there is nothing comparable about Muslim genital mutilation.

      Anyone with an IQ higher than that of a moron can see the difference in magnitude between the responses.

      And because your comments are so stupid, you have to use terminology like ‘mate’ to disguise the emptiness of your comments.

      Little Al on March 27, 2013 at 2:07 pm

        And another issue regarding “Seek”‘s (what a misname) comments is that older comments, while they may oppose genital mutilation, would not focus sharply on the current Muslim atrocities. Older articles would more likely be general discussions than a specific attack on current Muslim practices.

        Are Seek’s (sic) woeful comments an example of the ‘critical thinking’ currently ‘taught’ in schools?

        Little Al on March 27, 2013 at 4:03 pm

          Little Al, you have a surgeon’s precision when you wanna cut the fat away from an issue you know better on. I love that. It’s even better to read when passion is behind it.

          If peeps are confused today by “Feminazis” you can blame all those hags themselves (old-oh and nouveau) for the confusion.

          When I was still misled, in my young view-point it still seemed like a legitimate cause to fight for. But you had to hate men a little to be totally taken in and that’s very unhealthy and a bad mixture.

          In 2013, those who couldn’t get the gist and be right in the thick of what was *perceived* as legitimate “Feminism” can’t be ANYTHING but lost like a ball in tall weeds when it comes to feminism today. The ‘feminism’ of today is a bastardized, de-legitimized and completely soiled version of an ORIGINAL version that wasn’t to be trusted 100% on it’s own merits.

          Treating men like they don’t matter, being mean to them when they didn’t like the “chauvinistic” treatment of the men they hated back in the olden days, acting like slut-hogs, thinking stay-at-home-Mums are kept women, not embracing being a full-on mother but loving baby-mama-hood, instead of eradicating porn they embraced it (I knew feminism was a complete farce when I realized that you can’t have porno without willing women…and there will ALWAYS be willing, slut-chicks to provide that…) and cheating is only bad one YOU’RE the cuckold being cheated on. And being a gross, over-sexed whore is empowering.

          That’s the only reason I sometimes give peeps in 2013 a pass on ‘Feminism’. It’s like rotting jello…green, fuzzy, gross and hard to understand or get a grip on. It doesn’t make sense anymore and is just um-gala-gala bullsh.

          Skunky on March 27, 2013 at 7:06 pm

        If insult and ridicule were the same as thought, you’d be a Nobel Laureate, Little Al. Fortunately, we still have standards.

        You didn’t address my point, namely, that American feminists, like a lot of other people, long have opposed female genital mutilation, including that which occurs in Islamic societies. I only gave two examples because I didn’t think it necessary to bring up 200 more. Not every issue necessarily involves a Red State vs. Blue State grudge match. I’ve published research on FGM, so I’ll venture to say I know a lot more about the subject than you.

        Your boorish and ugly response to my comment shows your lack of character, to say nothing of intellect.

        Seek on March 28, 2013 at 2:17 pm

        Yes, Rushbo was right as usual.

        This is a very sick practice. And for those of you who try to compare it to male circumcism, don’t even try. I have researched both. Many girls as young as five have this done, and not always in sterilized settings……..they die from pain, infection… Its horrible. Do the research.

        When the muslims take over America, then we will be under sharia law.

        Rushbaby on May 26, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    I asked my husband the same question, why do the feminists remain silent? He told me there is a certain about of discontent in the left. The left sees everyone who is not American or European as oppressed people, even if they are oppressors. No one on the left is allowed to out them if they oppress others or deviate for the left’s official narrative. My sister is a very intelligent woman, but when the subject of war on women comes up I tell her that it’s not the republicans women need to worry about it’s Muslims trying to bring Sharia law into this county. She just shuts me out and won’t listen to me because she’s made up her mind that the Republican party is just a bunch of old white bigoted sexist old men. the long and short of it, Liberals are mental zombies.

    There is not much we can do to get these barbarians to stop cutting up their little girls……..Really, they can buy a plane ticket, or they can find a rusty razor….They will get it done.

prestigio on March 26, 2013 at 9:02 pm

Jerry, you’re right, my question is where the hell are the feminists groups on this issue of FGM’s being quasi performed in this country? My answer is that, there afraid that it’s being done by muslim-fundamentalist theistic nutjobs who takes their religion/cult way too seriously.

Also, from what I’ve saw on the census from last year was that the muslim population here in the United States was under 1%, and if it’s under 1%, it should remain that way, even though a very large majority of folks in this country identify themselves as christians, but a good number of christians here in the US are either pagan or secular (such as myself).

And to answer Jerry’s question, my answer is that why haven’t this story being presented to the media, is because muslim and arab pressure groups like CAIR, ADC, etc. will more likely scrutinize the media and shake them down, etc.?

Little Al on March 26, 2013 at 10:20 pm

‘As I noted, the Muslims in America are not unique nor in any way different from Muslims in Africa or Saudi Arabia or anywhere else.’

INDEED. No one says it so plainly as you do (and the daily evidence backs up your summation). Unfortunately, I hear peeps equivocating and referring to Jihadis as “Extremists”. It’s like a needle scratching the record. I get annoyed as soon as I hear that modifier.

We will get no where until people see the truth. 11 years after 9/11 we have so much work to do.

Everything about Islam enrages me. All this torture just to be with ugly, smelly, hypocrite beasts who use their fraudulent death-cult for trickery. Covering up the females (who are stupid, too), molesting the children, arranging “quicky” marriages to legitimize illegitimate unmarried sex, watchers of the most debase and disgusting porn and being able to marry a million Mooooooslimas and being able to beat and honour kill them just the same. Oh, how could I forget their love of gang rape?

What does America do? Pander to these vermin with open arms.

USA is going down a very dark and wrong road. They are letting the worst of the worst do EVERYTHING they can to rape and destroy her. From the culture, mores, norms and anything that taints this once great country. It’s so disgusting I just wanna look away.

I wonder if the liberals and even the average dumbass would wake up if these Muslims started killing a few of them? I guess that was a stupid question, because they didn’t seem to get the message of 9/11. Ignorance is curable. I wonder about stupidity.

RT on March 27, 2013 at 12:41 am

People, people. You hav to understand that Islam gets a pass on all this and more from the leftist and some on the right. In the mind of these fools, it’s the evangelical Christians that are a bigger threat especially to a “woman’s right” of abortion. Only Christians and include Catholics, who are a bigger threat to women. It pathetic that in the name of political correctness, these so call women’s groups feel that Muslims are just misunderstood at the least and at the worst, and the worse that anyone criticizing this barbarous practice s an Islamophobe.

Does Schlussel feel the same way about circumcising male children? I’m guessing no. Double standard, much?

Sta tus MoNkey y on March 27, 2013 at 8:18 am

    Circumcision is much worse for a female than for a male. The female is desexualized and the male is not. I disapprove of both but they are not the same.

    Cassandra Clearwater on March 27, 2013 at 9:56 am

    Ciccumcision for men isn’t as tramatic. It’t like comparing a hair style at the beauty shop with being scalped.

    jerry doegen on March 27, 2013 at 10:06 am

      In a circumcision the foreskin is removed, exposing the glans (sort of the male clitoris, if you will) so that men grow a callous over what would have been their most sensitive “love-nerves” so to speak. I wonder if that isn’t just as bad as “female circumcision,” but society is inured to it. Then again, I’ve certainly never had any 1st hand experience with women who have been subjected to FGM, so honestly I don’t know. Personally, I’m against genital alterations in general, including having “I love you” tattooed on them. Oddly enough, I assume that probably pisses some people off, somewhere, for which I apologize in advance….

The point is being missed by your arguments. The Question is
” why are little girls being subjected to Sexual Abuse and the fact that no one in the American Administration is doing anything about it? ”

Debbie is wholly correct and through her influence she is moving the white hot glare of the spot light onto a sect which believes that women must not enjoy the given gift of sexual intercourse lest they enjoy it and become unfaithful.
Can you imagine the pain of having your nether regions slashed and cauterized while awake and sober? .
I will also add Indonesia as being a country which condones the sexual abuse of infant girls, while Australia has done a huge job of preventing it happening,plus checking the status of young girls traveling to and from African and mid east countries . This is both to protect them from this barbarism and under age marriage ,which Muslim men seem to find satisfying. How one could enjoy sex with a partner who was both disinterested and inexperienced is beyond me.

Stop infusing politics into this. This effects America, not a specific political affiliation. The Muslims love the fact that America would rather fight amongst themselves than against the common enemy. We will self implode and they know it. It’s sad considering what we are leaving our kids/grandkids to deal with these issues when we could have dealt with this in our lifetime. The deficit will be enough to deal with…

This won’t go anywhere. In San Francisco they tried to ban parents from circumcising baby boys — a full assault against the Jewish faith. The SF Board of Supervisors lost in this attempt because of the outcry. Outside interests cannot tell members of a religion what they can practice. There are exeptions, I’m sure, but their version of circumsicion isn’t one of them.

Sharia law should never be used in the US. I read about this many years ago and it is so sad for these young girls.

Yet, today in the US if you touch someone in a way that they deem inappropriate you get arrested for sexual assault and could face life imprisonment. Yet this mutilation goes without charge, arrest or prosecution, even when this is supposed to be illegal in the US.

Basic Human (m&f) Genital Anatomy #101:

Neurologically, the most specialized pressure-sensitive cells in the human body are Meissner’s corpuscles for localized light touch and fast touch, Merkel’s disc cells for light pressure and tactile form and texture, Ruffini’s corpuscles for slow sustained pressure, deep skin tension, stretch, flutter and slip, and Pacinian corpuscles for deep touch and detection of rapid external vibrations. They are found only in the tongue, lips, palms, fingertips, nipples, and the clitoris and the crests of the ridged band at the tip of the male foreskin. These remarkable cells process tens of thousands of information impulses per second and can sense texture, stretch, and vibration/movement at the micrometre level. These are the cells that allow blind people to “see” Braille with their fingertips. Cut them off and, male or female, it’s like trying to read Braille with your elbow.

Physiologically, the clitoris is richly endowed with thousands of these specialized pressure-sensitive nerves and the clitoral foreskin is virtually bereft of them. The ridged band at the tip of the the penile foreskin is richly endowed with thousands of these same specialized pressure-sensitive nerves and the glans is virtually bereft of them. Lightening speed feedback by somatosensory transduction from such tactile sensitivity gives humans intense pleasure, environmental awareness, and control. Cut off these super-sensitive cells and with lack of awareness comes lack of control. To say that amputation of the clitoris or amputation of the mobile roller-bearing-like portion of the natural penis, and consequently thousands of these specialized nerve cell interfaces, does not permanently sub-normalize a woman’s or a man’s natural capabilities and partially devitalize their innate capacity for gliding action tactile pleasure is grossly illogical denial of the bio-mechanical and the somatosensory facts of human genital anatomy.

Mechanically, the natural vaginal and penile lubricants are kept inside the vagina during male/female intercourse by the organic seal effect of the mobile penile foreskin. The mechanoreceptors in the buried legs of the intact clitoris straddle the entroitus of the vagina and are stimulated by the identical mechanoreceptors in the thick bunching accordion folds of the mobile penile foreskin. The clitoris and the penile foreskin are also intensely vascular – thickening when stimulated. Millions of years of trial and error evolutionary forces have synchronously engineered the human sex organs to function synergistically. We can be sure Nature has evolved (if you prefer, God has created) these differences and duplications for a reason. The brilliantly engineered unaltered female body is the perfect match for the equally brilliantly engineered design of the natural penis; they evolved together to compliment each other and they function collaboratively to achieve two common goals – mutual pleasure and insemination.

A woman can live without the sensitivity of the visible part of her clitoris. A man can live without the mobile and most sensitive part of his penis. But, it seems logical that both men and women are better off with their natural fine-touch parts intact – all of them. And so are their sexual partners.

If you have to use the words “stupid” or “moron” in your rebuttal then you obviously aren’t educated on the topic enough. This has turned into a “bash and blame the feminists” commentary because you aren’t as concerned with the topic at hand as you are concerned with something else that you tried your hardest to link to this article.

matt on July 11, 2013 at 1:44 am

So called “male genital mutilation” refers to circumcision which has proven to have health benefits. By removing the foreskin of the penis you lower the risk of contracting STD, urinary tract infections and you cut down on the amount of bacteria that accumulates there.

Obviously a lot of the those commenting here aren’t as educated as they think they are.

What’s all this fuss about Female circumcision ? I am a happily circumcised Muslim woman and have no problem with it, so why should anybody ? I don’t have a smelly piece of skin covering my clit. So what. I am better off without it. Female circumcision in Islam is only the removal of the prepuce of the clitoris which is like the foreskin in males.

I chose to have it removed when it gave me problems including a bad smell which my husband found irritating and often complained about when we had oral sex. It also gave me painful irritations. My sex life has since the operation improved greatly. And its nice to know that my Islamic faith demands it, despite what some so-called Islamic scholars have to say about it.

Even western women are going for it under the name of hoodectomy. Here’s a great site about it – http://www.umatia.org/2011/Safe%20Female%20circumcision.doc
