It’s 2014. But don’t try to tell ISIS that.
The UN says militant Islamist group Isis has ordered all women and girls in Mosul, northern Iraq, to undergo female genital mutilation (FGM).
UN official Jacqueline Badcock said the fatwa, or religious edict, applied to females between the ages of 11 and 46.
Well, at least now we know the parameters of who these cowards are willing to rape.
The ritual cutting of girls’ genitals is practised by some African, Middle Eastern and Asian communities in the belief it prepares them for adulthood or marriage.
FGM poses many health risks to women, including severe bleeding, problems urinating, infections, infertility and increased risk of newborn deaths in childbirth.
It’s also needless and barbaric. Just like ISIS.
In other news, ISIS has ordered Mosul shopkeepers to cover up the faces of all female mannequins. These 7th-Century assholes hate and fear women so much, they can’t even stand to look at fake ones. What do they think their buddies will do if they see an unveiled woman made of fiberglass? Will they become so inflamed with lust that they suffer a premature explosion?
But we’re all just supposed to pretend this savagery isn’t happening, because Obama promised to get us out of Iraq. Can’t make him look bad. You’re on your own, ladies.
