FGM and Research

I'm going to be completely honest. Wednesday's lecture totally put me to sleep. This is more than likely because I've taken research methods and statistics and I absolutely loathe that we have to cover this material in other classes that are not "research methods!" This is stuff we all should have learned back in high school.
On a topic that is a bit more interesting- female circumcision. It is really hard for me to comprehend a culture where this behavior is expected. On the other hand, male circumcision is expected from mine. I do feel there is a very big difference though. Female circumcision is to void a female of pleasure from sex. A male can still experience pleasure during sex post circumcision. I recently found out that (according to the World Health Organization) there are four different major types of FGM.
Here is the website where you can read more about it.

  1. I know what you mean when you say listening to more research topics is boring. I actually found the discussion interesting. I personally think more research on sexuality should be done, but knowing our government it won't happen. Yea, I remember seeing a video of a girl screaming while she was being circumcised on a documentary. Its horrible.
