Female genital mutilation in Minnesota Somali population not disappearing

Diversity is beautiful (not!) alert!
Please read this dreadful story yourselves. So much for assimilation!
You can be sure that all of these girls are not traveling back to Africa to have the ‘procedure’ done, it must be being practiced right here in America where it is ILLEGAL.
See City Pages, here for news on female genital mutilation in Minnesota’s African refugee population.
See this map we published back in March:
Now, have a look at the map of states with the highest refugee populations. Although not a perfect match I think we can conclude that if your state gets large numbers of refugees, your chances of FGM happening where you live increases. So, what are the resettlement agencies doing to help stamp out this brutal treatment of women? Where are the feminists?
See all of our previous posts on FGM here.
And now, just for fun, see the mosque map for the US (thanks to Allen West’s blog for putting these maps together).
