Making money off African women’s genitalia
The more I dig into this Clitoraid stuff the more i’m left scratching my head at Good Vibrations and just how much they did not do their homework!
This morning I found this article Basically stating that the surgery to reopen the vagina to ease medical problems has existed for many years, and is offered for free by the government of Burkina Faso. Further, as of the article’s publication date in 2001 the new reconstructive surgery being performed here now is the first to attempt to reverse circumcision and allow women to regain some sexual sensation.
So what is Good Vibrations talking about when they say “Clitoraid was the only nonprofit organization we could find that was specifically funded for this purpose”. A few minutes on google and they would have the same information that I’ve found!
Again, I see their digging into supporting Clitoraid as a form of willful ignorance and arrogance where they would rather promote their business to customers with a ‘cool’ marketing ploy at the expense of African women and our dignity.
