It’s important for readers to know that Female Genital Mutilation is not “Female Circumcision”. That is a term used by defenders of the practice in order to make FGM seem equivalent by comparison to male circumcision. Circumcision of males carries the same risk of infection as any other medical procedure that involves cutting skin but is otherwise harmless. FGM on the other hand has long-lasting, often lifelong physical and emotional consequences for girls and is done for purposes that have nothing to do with a woman’s health or well-being.
The next Islamic terror attack happened this week at a large concert arena in Manchester, the second largest city in the UK. The bomber, Salman Abedi, had in recent years raised numerous suspicions of having become radicalized but wasn’t believed an immediate threat. Beyond the obvious tragedy of innocent concert goers being brutally murdered is the unnecessary travesty of politicians and media figures saying we must become accustomed to terror as well as be especially focused on Islamophobia.
To understand what will be happening in America in five to ten years, again we need only look at what’s happening in Sweden today. A widespread cultural denial of Islamic violence is necessary to maintain the liberal ideal of Sweden as a successful progressive socialist utopia – even at the expense of children falling into comas and girls falling off balconies.
Leftists pretending to care about women’s rights, like Gloria Steinem, who defends Mohammad and Islam, might benefit from a closer look at what the Prophet actually taught about women, their intelligence, and their value as human beings.

Political correctness about human sexuality is fostering horror stories for some of the nation’s most vulnerable children and their families. A new report attempts to clear that away to present the science.
As a result of increasingly prevalent sexual attacks on women and children at music festivals, public pools, and elsewhere in Europe, authorities in several countries have adopted weak, ineffectual attempts to address the problem. First there was the free “Don’t Grope Me” wristbands distributed in Sweden, and now there are “No! Not with me!” temporary tattoos in Germany. As if these will solve anything.
