I'm new at this wh*** evoking thing, but I'm going to try it. I came across an article that was about female genital mutilation/cutting in Ethiopia.
In the country there are a number of villages that practiced female genital mutilation (FGM). As of late, there has been a crackdown on stopping these acts. I actually didn't know that FGM was a practiced, albeit highly taboo, act that was done around the world. I knew about male mutilation, but not about female. This struck me in more ways that one.
It struck me because, for one, I studied sexual education and health and I learned about the human anatomy. The female genitalia is a sensitive region and mutilating it will have various consequences. I researched this issue further (using Wikipedia as a jump point, then going to other sites)
