Egypt MP Wants To Punish Women For Male Impotence
Egyptian Member of Parliament Elhamy Agina had a bizarre defense for Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) earlier this week when he encouraged women to undergo the barbaric practice in the (erroneous) belief that it weakens their sex drive. Why should women have to weaken their sex drive though? According to Mr. Agina it’s because Egyptian men are “sexually weak.” Agina cites the spread of viagra and other stimulants (as well as, we suppose, his own personal observation) as “evidence” of this impotency and voices concern that if the practice is banned (which it is in Egypt) Egyptian men might have to perform better in the bedroom. One would think that having a poorly performing sexual partner would be punishment enough for Egyptian women without having to subject them to the barbarity of FGM.
