FGM aka Female circumcision

A small minority of muslim parents believe that female circumcision is a vital part of their culture, some of them are putting their daughters lives in danger with botched home circumcisions, how should we as an nation address this ?

Condemn It, kick them out of the country and jail anyone who did it.

Well it’s a crime in this country to harm a child, so the parents and the “practitioner” need to be dealt with per se by AGS.
Tragically this will mean that the child will be returned to be “operated on” in some hell hole where it’s acceptable.
Social workers will confirm, if someone is determined to abuse their child, they won’t be deterred, unless the child is removed from them first.

It's their culture, why is nobody locked up when a lads flute is similarly butchered in the name of another religion?

Make sure that the 2012 law banning it in Ireland is upheld firmly. In addition provide education and preventative support to the communities affected. Next.

Oh that's just as wrong too in my opinion.

It's not a Muslim thing, it's more of a cultural one. There's plenty of Christians and other religions/non-religions at it as well. Imprisonment for the parents/practicioners followed by deportation and rescinding citizenship is the only answer IMO. Anybody encouraging it should be treated as incitement to violence, or assaulting somebody.

Wasn't there this guy a while ago in a similar topic where he raved about his and his sons circumcision because his wife has some creepy obsession with it and even tried talking her friends into doing it? Was hilarious.

Jokes aside though, charge people who do that, charge practitioners who do. The more complicated thing though, what if they travel abroad to do it?
When my son was little he was at a childminder together with an African boy. At some point the childminder told me, he's gonna be abroad for 2-3 weeks because his grandfather planned to do a circumcision. That was weird.

I'm no fan of circumcision, but you really can't compare it like for like with FGM.

If you're going to compare FGM with circumcision, then im gonna say we should also ban (and enforce /penalise) ear piercing of children for the same reason.
