Something that drifted past recently was a change to the NHS guidelines and rules for defining Female Genital Mutilation, something I strongly oppose. Thousands of victims have suffered this crime in the name of Culture, thousands of young girls have been mutilated, often by their own mothers, because it is the custom.
Thousands of young girls who spend the rest of their lives suffering because of a cruel and evil act that after thirty years and tens of thousands of victims and yet:
NOT A SINGLE BLOODY PROSECUTION!
Instead we have had one whole case brought against a doctor who used a stitch to close a bleeding wound. Yet it was brought to court as FGM and then after much media noise was dropped because it was blatantly stupid.
NOT ONE SINGLE PROSECUTION!
Now we have another step in the ongoing national and international effort to ignore this crime against children, while our Home Secretary is busy trying to whip up fears of child abuse in order to push through yet more state control and censorship, her administration has through deliberate action or incompetence or a politically correct motivation to avoid having to deal with women with dark skin has not done nothing.
No they are actively working to make the situation WORSE.
The World Health Organisation updated their definition of FGM and the UK government and NHS rubber stamped the change.
So why am I angry?
Because rather than doing anything to prevent the deliberate mutilation of children they have declared that any woman with genital piercings is now to be categorized as having suffered FGM. Women who for whatever reason have undergone willing piercing, who wear rings or studs or whatever else they have chosen to wear are now to be classified as having been subject to FGM and the NHS rules insist that any doctor or nurse registers this.
It also applies to willing, adult, cosmetic surgery.
So now we have doctors and nurses being ordered to report any woman who has such a piercing as being the potential victim of a crime, the system designed to identify the actual victims is going to be swamped by women who willingly underwent vanity piercings. Creating more paperwork for the medical staff, throwing up thousands of data files to confuse the issue and make it even harder to spot the abused children.
How long before doctors and nurses get fed up and simply stop reporting anything that may or may not be FGM?
What else. Well if such a piercing is now FGM that means the person who performed the piercing has just legally committed an offence, if someone with a genital piercing is the victim of a crime then the person who did the piercing has become the criminal.
How many zealous fanatics are we going to see trying to prosecute these case, how many scumbag lawyers are we going to see crawling out of the slime to bring such cases. How many people who have been running perfectly legal piercing businesses are going to be forced to refuse any genital piercing for fear of the law against FGM being applied to them.
What about tattoo’s on or near the genital region?
What about nipple piercings?
What I see here is the NHS taking a huge step backwards in the fight against FGM, this will not make it easier to protect girls from mutilation, all it will achieve is to create thousands of possible cases that will confuse the issue and take up valuable time and effort that should be used to protect children.
It will spread confusion and affect people’s freedom of expression as adults to have tattoos or piercings where they want.
It will do nothing to stop FGM.
I can’t help thinking if it were white children being mutilated like this it would have been stopped decades ago!
