Female genital mutilation banned in Indonesia

Outrageously inhuman operations of female circumcision have been officially banned in Indonesia, a Health Ministry spokesman said.
It's about time!
The prohibition against the practice - also known as female genital mutilation or cutting - came in the form of a notice sent to doctors and nurses in April, said Soemardi, who goes by a single name. There is no punishment for those who ignore it, he said.
If there's no punishment, then what's the point of banning such a barbaric practice.
A very mild form of female circumcision, typically a pin prick to the clitoris, is often performed on baby girls in Indonesia. The practice is considered compulsory by some Islamic preachers, the AP reports.
Not surprising. They seem to hate women, but without women, there are no men!
Most of them live in 28 African countries, although some live in Asia and the Middle East. But girls and women in Europe, Australia, Canada and the United States, primarily among immigrants from these regions, are also at risk, the WHO said.
This is a serious culture difference that should NOT be allowed to immigrate with anyone. Where are the feminazis? Shouldn't they have been up in arms about the mutilation of women? The silence is deafening.
