So, there I was--freshly exercised, fed, and showered--catching up on internet things before I fell into the sweet arms of Morpheus, when this caught my eye on my twitter feed:

"DodgerofZion: @thelindsayellis Happening pretty close to your backyard: http://bit.ly/bz2nV8"

TRIGGER WARNING (because I didn't think to warn on my twitter, and my sincere apologies to one friend. RECAP: the links regard female genital surgery on very young children conducted AT CORNELL UNIVERSITY. And all because their clits were deemed by the doctors as too big. Oh, and without the consent of the ethics board (though, WTF what the FUCK sort of ethics board ok-ed the first part?!!?) the doctor wants to perform yearly examinations involving stimulation with a vibrating device and a Q-tip. And this research, though the head doctor is a man, the other two doctors whose names are attached to the report are women.)


I clicked the link. And then clicked on this article as well (Bad Vibrations).

I'm just going to let that sink in for a moment.

Ok.

Got it?

WHAT. THE. FUCK.

NO. REALLY.

The only thing these University of Mengele PhD holders deserve is to QUALIFY FOR A DARWIN AWARD. The basis and justification for this procedure and study is horrifying. I DON'T CARE IF YOU CLAIM BIG CLITS MAKE GIRLS AGGRESSIVE, TOMBOYISH, AND *GASP* LESBIANS! The psychological harm of just the physical examination of being sexually stimulated by your "Doctor" as your PARENTS watch has GOT to outweigh the harm of growing up with a clit that doesn't "Look Right".

HAVING GENITAL THAT DOESN'T LOOK "NORMAL" ISN'T AN ISSUE THAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED SURGICALLY AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE. AND UNLESS IT SOMEHOW SEVERELY DIMINISHES A PERSON'S QUALITY OF LIFE FOR EITHER HEALTH OR PSYCHOLOGICAL REASON, IT SHOULD NEVER BE AN ISSUE.

This study is bullshit, these doctors' are out of their fucking minds, and I'm mad as hell. Tell me I'm not crazy for thinking this. Please, tell me my outrage isn't misplaced this time.
