The Muhammad Cartoons Corollary

Can't Quite Blame the West

National Post:

Academia's fixation on cultural sensitivity is changing the debate around female genital mutilation, with a growing number of professors and women's rights activists becoming hesitant to condemn the practice.

Where feminists rallied against the operation from the pages of Ms. magazine in the 1970s, today's critics are infinitely more cautious, with most suggesting that the Western world butt out until Muslim African communities are ready to reconsider what they are doing to their daughters.

Oh, so brave!

Yeah, we should just keep silent on this issue:

The shift in attitudes about the practice-- which in the worst of cases involves the carving out of a woman's clitoris and inner labia and can cause lifelong urinary tract infections, sterility and even death -- comes at a time when high-profile victims of the operation such as writer Ayaan Hirsi Ali and model Waris Dirie, both Somalis, have launched very public campaigns against the practice.

It is one thing to watch cultures commit a slow-motion mass murder/suicide using generation after generation of their own daughters but to see Western leftists bring popcorn and watch the show while cheering on the "diversity" is like looking into the bowels of Hell.

When the Soviet Union went on sabbatical the left kept Marxism aside (not away) while they looked for another tree stump to hook their wagon to and they found it in Islam. My only question is, when Islam falls, what scary-ass new ideology are they going to fall in with next? I suppose that we have a while before we will find out the answer to that.

From Communism to Islamism to, likely, Fascism. (I'm thinking of China.)

Maybe with a chaser of Scientology.
