I agree that it's a step in the right direction and one of the important things about this post Anna, is that you posted it. So many people are unaware that this procedure exists (invented by British doctors back when they blamed sex for most diseases and mental issues) and that it takes place in many areas on the African continent against the will of the female subject.
