We were totally ready to write a post mocking “Adopt A Clitoris” — it just sounds bad, doesn’t it? — but, uh, then we actually found out what it was, and all jokes went out the window.
For those who aren’t inclined to click on links:
The goal of Clitoraid’s “Adopt a Clitoris” program is to create real, long lasting changes for women who have been forced to experience clitoral excision or genital mutilation against their will… [by] rebuilding the female clitoris…. with sexual pleasure and genetic normality being the end result.
Most of the women in Burkina Faso cannot imagine having the money for such an operation. For most of them, it would be like spending two year’s salary!
Clitoraid is committed to provide these operations for free to as many women as possible. We will minimize our operating cost to the minimum, having mainly benevolent people involved in the whole process. But in order to provide such a service to the millions who have been mutilated, we need your help. By adopting a clitoris, (in part or in full) you can return the female body to its true form, which was denied them by unconscious thought and barbarianism. Imagine all the young girls who are dreaming to be whole again. You can make this wish come true, and be fundamental in the cease and desist of clitoral mutilation of the future!
It warms our snarky little hearts, it does.
