Those at UNAIDS and The World Health Organization would have you believe that female genital cutting is different from male genital cutting, that FGC is sexually punitive and dangerous while MGC is not. Side-by-side comparison of risks and consequences… shows they are NOT so dissimilar.

I like how they use “hemorrhage” in one and “excess bleeding” in the other.

(In case you don’t know, hemorrhaging is excess bleeding).

And of course “reduce sexual desire and functioning” vs “loss of sensitivity, sexual dysfunction”. Okay, any idiot should be seeing that one.

The bleeding, we go from medical to personal to reduce emotional attachment… and then, for sexuality, we go from personal to medical to reduce emotional attachment again.

Also laughing at that there is somehow “inadequate skin removal”.
