I had planned a quick sweet blog for this Sunday evening, finishing out a lovely New Mexico day. But I read this blog by Kitt Crescendo and I knew I had to step forward with something that has disturbed me for so long. I have to warn you this can be disturbing.
Kitt’s blog has to do with FGM…Female Genital Mutilation. I hope you’ve heard of it. Well not really hope since it’s such a horrific thing to have happen to young girls I wish it would only be a footnote in historical books. But it is very real. It is happening NOW and not enough is done to try to STOP IT.
It is NOT funny. Along with other things NOT funny: videos of frightened pets making odd noises. Children falling down or being pulled down by accident. Crotch hits. Most of the “funniest home videos” Sorry, not funny.

Thank you so much for sharing.
Thank YOU for putting it out there in the first place. It fits so well with the ranting I’ve been doing.
Have a wonderful season

So not funny.
I wanted to add that neither are those pranking videos, which I’ve learned to spot and avoid at a glance. But that just seemed petty next to FGM.
Scary. But still far more valid than most of what we’re seeing on the Internet
Very much agreed. “Funniest” home videos indeed. And genital mutilation is obscene. What’s particularly horrible is that it’s women (apparently) you perform the process.
It’s often the relatives. And it’s the fear that their daughters will not be able to have a proper life. Makes me ill
