(1)" There's nothing I can do about it."
There is a lot you can do about it.
(2)" There's nothing that most everybody can do about it. It's in their culture and that will never change."
Yes, it will change . It already is changing due to the efforts of many anti-FGM activists just not fast enough. Are you going to join them?
(3)" A dam breaks; flood waters inundate a small town. And you blame me for it because I just stood there crying?"
I certainly would blame you if you just stood there crying instead of trying to rescue and help the victims.
(4)" What is billi doing about it?"
I have joined and anti-FGM group and I am contributing MONEY! Two things all Girl lovers should be doing. And I am posting here and other places to raise awareness of this issue.
