Pregnancy hormones

A few hours leading up to the birth of their baby, Kiki called up her husband and let him have it. She yelled at him and cursed him out over a past issue, forbidding him from coming near her or the baby and asking for a divorce (of course he ignored her). Then she rang her friend right after and burst into tears confused at what she had just done. Pregnancy is a very trying period for all involved. Forget the cute baby bumps on the ‘gram, it’s not a walk in the park.

Why aren’t they plucked out as they are also prone to see evil and lead us into temptation without necessarily delivering us from the said evil? If that sounds ridiculous to pull off, why then are women physically deterred from enjoying one of the most beautiful things the human body has to offer? Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) otherwise referred to as circumcision, is the removal of some or all of the external female genitalia for non medical reasons. There are absolutely no health benefits for girls or women and is totally unnecessary. Female sexuality is said to be insatiable if the clitoris specifically is not removed. FGM is done as a means to prevent masturbation and is thought to ensure virginity, purity, modesty, beauty and fidelity. It is also said to heighten male sexual pleasure which is arrant nonsense because how would a man enjoy sex with a woman who doesn’t know what it feels like to be “horny” or “turned on” …
