Leyla Hussein, 32, said many were scared to speak out against FGM because they were worried about criticising another culture.
Congratulations, Leyla, you now live in the world the progressives built! Ain’t it grand?
Approaching shoppers with the petition supporting FGM, she told them she wanted to protect her “culture, traditions and rights” .
In only 30 minutes 19 people signed it with some saying they believed FGM was wrong but because it was part of Ms Hussein’s culture they would add their names. Only one person refused to sign.
No doubt plans are afoot to track down that one last hold-out and send him for reconditioning…
Ms Hussein, who is co-founder of the anti-FGM charity Daughters of Eve, is calling on the Home Office to take responsibility for drawing up an action plan to eliminate FGM in this country.
How about we start by eliminating the sort of people who support FGM from our country?
Oh, well, just a thought…
