Female Genital Mutilation
Female Genital Mutilation
No Judgement On Controversial Topic
I am interested in this topic because it takes me out of my own comfort zone and pushes me to really think about things. It pushes me to not be bias and to try and see issues from another point of view or perspective
My work can benefit the way others think about controversial topics and can teach others to hold their tongue even when they don’t want to. It is a good quality to be able to open your brain and mind and listen to someone else’s perspective on life without interrupting them or making fun
We don’t want to push our views and opinions down someone’s throat. We don’t want to invalidate others because of their personal experiences. And we especially don’t want to think less of women who have gone through FGM whether they thought it was positive or negative. We should just listen and not put our views on their traditions
We cannot judge what others do with their body, we cannot assume they are being forced, we cannot assume anything. It is important to understand what happens so we do not judge or place bias onto someone else
Just because someone is different than you does not mean they are less than important or not as valued. It is important to learn about other cultures with an open mind and open heart.
I am interested in this topic because it is a topic that is not highly discussed. It is taboo.
I was very misinformed
Understanding that there are always different perspectives is important. Many people around the world view this topic differently and that’s ok. But what is not okay is to judge someone because they are different and do things differently than you do
reading a lot about different myths and beliefs and the actual process I learned a lot more
I also learned that there were different types of the female genital mutilation and that different locations prefer different types. Some types are more common than other types as well
These are important to know in order to gain full knowledge of the procedure. Without knowing the full details one can only assume. So I wanted to bring all the facts and background information to the reader so they could be informed
The different types sometimes have reasoning behind them
My project will teach everyone about the basic facts and details about the practice of female genital mutilation. The overall purpose of this paper is not only to inform and educate others but to open everyone’s minds
The women are the ones who are pretty much fully in charge of what is going on. The elderly women are pretty much in charge of the society, they are the ones with most power
I learned that men typically don’t really care about the practice they are somewhat indifferent.
Understanding the basic knowledge about the topic will go a long way
I want to talk about the basic facts of female genital mutilation like who performs it, when it is performed, how it is performed what the practice is and where it is common
Reasoning and Justification
I think the overall most important aspect of my topic is the justification behind the practice.
Women sometimes choose themselves to do this
also want to talk about why women/ individuals undergo the procedure and their reasoning behind it
What procedure they go with depends on beliefs or traditions
People need to understand that there are different reasons women undergo the procedure. Could be religious or personal or tradition, the reasons change. The location can also change the reasoning.
They are willingly choosing to go through it based on their personal or cultural reasons
this topic needs to be talked about and people be educated on what the procedure actually is. They need to be educated on the justification, where it happens, because it does happen in the United States.
I can use this knowledge and educate others which does some real world good
It is important to be educated in the health hazards to be able to inform and educate others.
They need to know how to protect themselves if they want, or how to go get this procedure done if they want. Although it is illegal in most places
I can educate others on what the practice is and that girls willingly do it. They willingly and readily undergo the procedure!!! I can take a side of the controversial subject and make a change and be an advocate and say I don't like the practice or I can say that the practice should be legal and that if girls want to have FGM performed on them, then they should be allowed to
There are a lot of physical health consequences that come along with the procedure and there are zero health benefits
is important for people to understand the hazards of the practice. And that there are very dangerous things that can happen. Some may choose to go through the procedure even though they know what could possibly happen.
Some may think the procedure consequences aren’t that extreme while others think it is awful.
I believe this is important so one can fully picture and see what can sometimes happen after the procedure.
