To deny them sexual pleasure. It usually diesn't happen in the US, but Georgia has just tried it's first case against the illegal mutilation performed by an Ethiopan immigrant father on his daughter.

"LAWRENCEVILLE, Georgia (AP) -- An Ethiopian immigrant was convicted Wednesday of the genital mutilation of his 2-year-old daughter and was sentenced to 10 years in prison in what was believed to be the first such criminal case in the United States.

Khalid Adem, 30, was found guilty of aggravated battery and cruelty to children. Prosecutors said he used scissors to remove his daughter's clitoris in his family's Atlanta-area apartment in 2001. The child's mother, Fortunate Adem, said she did not discover it until more than a year later.

Adem, who had no criminal record, could have been sentenced to up to 40 years in prison. He held his face in his hands and wept loudly after the jury's verdict was read.

During her father's trial, the girl, now 7, clutched a teddy bear as she testified on videotape that her father "cut me on my private part."

Gonna have to go ahead and say all this business about doing it to deprive women of pleasure is a western interpretation. Is it really these people's fault that they grow up in a country where people have believed for centuries that women who are circumcised are more beautiful, cleaner, and more likely to get married. Does anyone REALLY think a dad would do this to his child so that she can't orgasm? I think not. Parents want what's best for their children no matter what society they grow up in and unfortunately they don't have the possibility of changing what society says is best. Throwing people in jail is certainly not the way to fix that.

And on top of that, what about all the boys in the US who get their foreskins ripped off everyday without any anesthesia because people think its cleaner or it looks prettier or some other such nonsense that we all know is untrue now. Do you know how many nerve endings that takes away? Why isn't that called mutilation too?

Some of the women who’ve been circumcised also say it’s a lie that they can’t have orgasms. Check out the book Black Sisters Speak Out by Awa Thiam that’s filled with testimonies of all types from women who’ve had it done.

These immigrants flood into civilised countries looking for a better way of life, and take advantage of our many benefits that are on offer. Yet they still abide by their retarded primitive traditions. That child could have easily bled to death. The child's mother, Unfortunate Adem, said she did not discover it until a year later? Lying Bitch! what sort of mother ignores blood in their baby's nappy, or whatever they use.
As my old gran use to say: You can take the savage out of Africa but you can't take Africa out of the savage!

I think I'm gonna have to go ahead and say that when people come to our live in our country, they must abide by our laws. Period. (Even if they're made by idiots at the present time.) I may not go so far as to say they're all savages, but if we stole something from a shop in certain other countries, we'd get our hand cut off. Or be executed.

Sometimes, moving to a new country means putting away your scissors. (And why is it that these "customs" that are supposed to make women more "beautiful" always involve large amounts of pain?)

Antonio, you're right about male circumcision being mutilation, too. And it supposedly does remove some of the sensation, though not the ability to orgasm. And it isn't practiced with sharp stones or other unsterilized objects, to my knowledge.

You write: Does anyone REALLY think a dad would do this to his child so that she can't orgasm?

Do you really think that a caring father would subjec this daughter to a home operation from which many have died? Even in Africa, the procedure is carried out by some woman in a village--octors can't perform it as it 's illegal.

Unfortunately, even in this country, there is a notion that women who enjoy sex (other than for procreation) are slutty. That's why so many sexually active/married uncircumcized women in this country have never had an orgasm. That's why Hasidic jews force their wives to shave their heads and wear wigs--and if I'm not mistaken, get fucked through a hole in the sheet which covers both partners. And the burqas and other head wraps in the Middle East--don't these exist to de-sexualize women? To me, all this is a way of keeping women down. Ask any girl if they want an operation which will reduce her chances of having an orgasm or that she may die from and I doubt that she'll go for it. Sometimes performed on girls as early as 9, even if they were asked, before the girls had passed puberty, they won't know what an orgasm feels like. So sure, maybe they'd agree to it to make their pussy prettier or to up their bridal ante, but a tradition which robs them of an ability to orgasm is a shocker to me. --B

I remember my Clitoral Removal. It wasn't elective, in my case. The nuns made me do it in the 7th grade, so i'd stop masturbating in Social Studies class when they would show pictures from national geographic.

My surgery went really well actually. I don't have feeling down there, today. But, they gave me Ketamine as the anesthesia. So, the surgical experience itself was quite dreamy.

I didn't want to make it sound like I think it's okay for women to be forced to wear burqas or have their clitorises chopped off, but rather "stop keeping women down" is obviously not logic people in general understand.

All cultures do retarded things just because they always have or because they think it makes them prettier or because it's a tradition.

Again are Americans any better by routinely ripping off foreskins? I read once that a dad in South Dakota tried to sue a mom that had his son circumcised against his wishes under the federal genital mutilation laws and the court threw it out saying that even if he could prove the procedure was indeed harmful, the damage was already done. Couldn't you apply the same thing here? And what about intersex babies here in the states where doctors just decide what sex they are going to assign them based on what's easiest. Isn't that mutilation too?

Anyhow I took an entire class on this subject at school called Mutilated Bodies, Mutilated Discourse so that's why it’s kind of a hot button thing for me. I will shut up now.

Dude. Ten years, and the mom didn't know until over a year later???? What. The. Fuck. Ever. I say put that bitch in jail for neglect!

The father was only doing a cultural practice that is very common throughout the world. Yeah, it sucks, but its a tribal practice like male circumcision.

I think the main problem is, is that it is done so late in life. If you are going to "consecrate" your child through circumcision it has to be under the care of both parents when the child is in infancy.

Circumcision should probably be outlawed, though, because of high instances of penis ablation and unwanton disengenderment in both sexes.

In this particular case I would say both the parents should pay heavy fines and be investigated by CPS and laws need to be made to oversee traditional child circumcision in a safer and more professional environment, if it is to be allowed at all.

There are a lot of old traditions that need to be phased out, by legislation if necessary. Female circumcision especially is definitely at the top of the list.

By the way, I think the comment about taking the savage out of Africa is just so very pretty. I wonder if it will be true for my own new child.

Your grandmother sounds like a very enlightened woman. More thinking like that and the world will surely be a lovely place.

I am an uncircumcised male, so it's not like I have an ax to grind. But I get deeply disgusted by the fact that female circumcision (or genital mutilation, if you prefer) is viewed completely differently by our society/lawmakers than male circumcision. Who the fuck gave ANY parent the right to decide which healthy bits of ANY child they can amputate? I am even more disgusted by medical practitioners acting like pofiteers while they violate oaths and ethics. A pox on anyone that would do any of this to any child, for any misguided reason, and an especially cruel and heinous pox for those that would do so in the name of their god.

On August 29, 2006 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications announced the signing of a four year contract worth $20 million to become the title sponsor of the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open is currently the largest tournament in the world with Title Sponsorship. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched.

In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open was awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP for five consecutive years and seven of the last eight years and in 2004 by the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and is considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG.
The only combined 12-day Tennis Masters Series event on the ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour calendar, the Sony Ericsson Open features the world's top-ranked pros - 96 men and 96 women in singles competition, and 32 men's teams and 32 women's teams in doubles action.

If you are an erectile dysfunction patient and the disorder is wreaking havoc in your sex life then discuss your problem with a doctor as soon as possible. Once you approach a physician, the doctor is likely to provide you Viagra prescription which further entitles you to obtain Viagra from viagra stores. If you administer Viagra in accordance with medical instructions, bearing in mind all the essential Viagra side-effects and precaution details, you would find yourself considerably relieved from the shackles of impotency.
