This BBC item has been brought to my attention.

Sessions to encourage men to help stop female genital mutilation (FGM) will be held in Bristol, it is hoped. Campaign group Daughters of Eve has started hosting workshops for men in London after gaining funding from the Staples Trust in December.

Wonder who these “men” might be? Any thoughts? The world class BBC journalists don’t seem to know….

    David, I think we all know the ethnic background of those involved. If its just plain wrong, medieval in its outlook and involves the appalling treatment of women then it’s a safe bet. Answers on a postcard!


  2. Dave says:

    The same communities also enjoy mutilating the genitals of young boys too. Why don’t we ever hear BBC/Nu Labour types campaigning to stop that type of child abuse?


    • David Preiser (USA) says:

      One can cause infection, incontinence, and life-threatening bleeding, while the other doesn’t. Bit of a difference.


      • Dave says:

        Actually you get plenty of deaths from male genital mutilation (and not just from when the mutilator gives the baby herpes by sucking the blood from his genitals). Plenty of non-fatal infections too and various damaged or lost penises caused by botched surgery.

        There are actually many different types of FGM, a number of which do less damage than MGM (or a roughly equal amount).


        • Adi says:

          Earlier (rather than sooner) everyone should expect Dave to take stance against both FGM and circumcision.

          But of course Brave Dave doesnt: he is here to say that both are morally equivalent.

          Check out Brave Dave fb page and you’ll see he’s a surgeon expert when it comes to male/female sexual organs (yes, I made up this bit).

          It also seems Brave Dave has a problem with circumcised males while quite inclusive with circumcised females.

          Of course we all know that Mohamed (PBUH) was born circumcised, hence all the followers…

          But hey, lets not equate FGM with cutting a man’s dickhead (and I mean surgically remove it) because this might somehow disturb Brave Dave (yes, he’s a man) vision about his “manhood” anatomy equivalence.

          But then again, a leftie knows everything about everthying. And Brave Dave makes no exception.

      Never mind that Dave, I hear Jews in the UK kill muslim children to use their blood in matzahs. I read it on that interweb.


  3. BG says:

    ‘Illegal in the UK, it is known to be carried out in more than 28 countries, mainly in western and southern Asia, the Middle East, including Yemen and Saudi Arabia, and parts of Africa such as Somalia, Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan.’


  4. Span Ows says:

    There will also be a men only session, run by a male counsellor and aimed at allowing men to have an “honest conversation”.

    Ironic when they omit so much from the article.


  5. beness says:

    This Honest conversation would not involve someone saying “you are here and should abide by the laws of this land” would it?


  6. beness says:

    And can we have an Honest conversation about how TB has once again managed to reach our shores.

      Badgers in berkas?


    • Deborah says:

      TB – sorry as I read this I thought you meant Tony Blair (well even while he was PM he didn’t spend that long in the UK)


      • zemplar says:

        Pretty soon, the BBC will resort to describing muslims as ‘carbon units’ to avoid even calling them ‘men’. That way, suspicion can be cast over the entire population, without prejudice.


  7. Leftie-Loather says:

    Dead easy mistake to make though, isn’t it, just “men” in general for muslims or muslim men? At least does usually seem to be for the pathetically bashful BritishBrainwashingCorporation anyway.
    Takes arrogant Al-Beeb’s ‘sensitive’ reporting to a whole new level!


  8. james says:

    Another example of progressives importing a Turd World problem and then blaming evil white men. The same happened when there was an increase in heterosexual HIV rates, they forgot to mention that the rise was caused by immigration from Sub-Saharan Africa.


  9. Richard Pinder says:

    Some Sons of Adam called paedophiles may be interested.


  10. Dave says:

    Whenever a chosen group does something positive or is a victim of something BBC go out of their way to identify their faith or ethnicity and usually ignore their male gender.

    Whenever it’s something bad they instead try to smear all adult males – it’s actually very sexist when you think about it.


  11. bob says:

    This doesn’t require a “workshop” just a call to the Police. It’s child abuse in the guise of religion. One of several issues that befuddles the Left (who try to explain it in terms of cultural relativism) but is common sense to anyone else. Arrest the parents for child abuse.


  12. James S says:

    They wouldn’t happen to follow a certain religion would they? Saying that they can’t be Christians or this story would surely be the top story on the 6 o’clock news…


    • johnnythefish says:

      Ehhh, the joys of multicultural England. ‘Educate’, rather than prosecute, seems to be the tolerant English way of sorting this out. Oh, hang on, there can’t be an ‘English way’ can there, because that would suggest we have some kind of culture of our own,,,,,


      • Richard Pinder says:

        Being tolerant has also gone out of favour. Have just heard that the met does not tolerate racism.
