Why Islam falls short of globally sanctioning FGM
So far as one section of our species can go to devalue, abuse, and oppress another section, the selfish motives, more often than not, call for a limit to oppression. A master can cane its slave as much as one wants to, but will mostly refrain from permanently damaging the slave’s organs of labor, the hands and the legs. Acute impulses to dominate an individual or a group of individuals are thus limited in intensity by the rationale to persistently dominate them.
Here is why “I think” female genital mutilation (FGM) is not popular, rejected or even condemned by the majority of muslim populations, even though they already are the most misogynist sections (I use “sections of people” and not religion, because pick any group, based on whatever differences, nothing get more misogynist than muslim “section&rdquo on the planet and possess the capacity to go worse.
- historically, one of the main reason for FGM is to prevent masturbation. But FGM is clearly useless for this purpose to the patriarchal structure of a typical muslim family. This is perhaps only one section of people where there is research and publication about the islamic methodology of physical punishment for the wife (independent of the law). So when muslim females have lived in threat right from their childhood, why do you need to cut off their most sexually sensitive parts? Just threaten them to death if they masturbate, simple!
- FGM is dangerous and carries risk of death. While muslim men are known for raping minor girls till they bleed and die. (not to be confused with “raping and subsequent murdering&rdquo, FGM is of no sexual advantages to the man. Why try cutting the clitoris or labia and lose all the curves a muslim woman is thought to be about?
- finally, the most important and obvious one. An uncut women enjoys sex more than a cut woman. Muslim wives are primarily kept for two purposes, one being the livestock reproductive machine and the other being sexual pleasure, and I feel the latter is more important (marrying multiple uteri doesn’t make sense but investing on multiple vaginas, pretty much, yes). So why would you cut them and make the the sex any less enjoyable? After all, you have a “peaceful” cult to populate the world with.
