Try and go to the blog (first link) then scroll to the bottom. It's there too if you can't make it work I'll email you a copy. And if anyone can give me more detail on the problem with he second link that would be helpful.

The first goes to a blog post about the article and has a link to it at the bottom. The second is a direct link to the article. Be sure that you have Adobe Reader installed it is required. If you continue to have difficulty PM me and I can email it to you.

And it will probably be appealed if they do win, so it might take a while. I don't know enough about such things to know what kind of a chance they have. But if they do win, that could really help.

Still really not comfortable, not real argument has worked with Dh. I finally found one!!!! We were in a store and saw a magazine cover with a little baby...

Yes all that practice FGM also practice MGM you can check it out on this prevalence map: (scroll down) http://www.circumstitions.com/Maps.html
David at C&HIV posted about this recently published article which discusses the disconnect between MGM and FGM. The article is worth reading, I strongly recommend it.
Congratulations! Such a lucky boy; and a thoughtful husband.
I've never had this problem myself, and of the intact boys/men I've known I've not heard of it being a problem. If and elderly relative was having this problem in a nursing home I'd be more concerned with the quality of care he or she was receiving at the facility.
A quick read and I didn't think it was awful.

When you change the language you start to change the minds, you know. Thanks OP for pointing this article out.
