The article is in German, obviously, but let me explain what it is all about.
For better explanation, let’s go back to 2012.
In 2012 the German parliament, the Bundestag, decided that circumcision of male children under religious grounds shall be legal. That was, in my opinion, a step away from what an enlightened society should be. There is no logic reason for circumcision except development of a true phimosis, which can require surgery for everything to work as intended.
Cynical voices then wondered openly how long until female circumcision based on religious grounds (also known as female genital mutilation) would be legal in Germany.
It is now 2014 and Tatjana Hörnle, professor of law at Berlin’s Humboldt university, has made that step.
She demands that female “circumcision” must be legalized in Germany in the name of “female equality” and “women’s equal rights”, because boys are getting cut, so it’s only fair to cut girls as well!
Her demand has been met with contempt by doctors Scherer (physician at the Desert Flower Center, who works a lot on women who have been mutilated like this) and Hartmann (of the German union of pediatric doctors.)
Hartmann calls it cynical to use an argumentation that justifies physical violence against girls with physical violence against boys. Scherer warns that legalizing the removal of the clitoral hood under religious grounds will open the door for full FGM, the real War on Women.
Katharina Kunze from Terre the Femmes takes it a step further and calls it what it is: a manifestation of an anti-women society.
Professor Hörnle is already infamous in Germany for stating that the German ban of incest is not plausible.
Consider it for a second. It’s 2014, and there is a white, female professor, a woman (using the term loosely, really) in a free, democratic country that considers itself advanced and open and supports equality of the sexes, demanding that girls getting cut for no logic reason should be legal because boys are already getting cut for the same lack of logic reasons. She is willing to open the door for full scale female genital mutilation, an utterly barbaric practice that has no room in the 21st century under any circumstances, in the name of “women’s rights”.
This is the real War on Women.
