Photos of circumcised women?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I've found photos online of intact and circumcised penises. Is there a similar gallery for women? Via Google I found testimonials of how wonderful circ was, people condemning the practice as barbaric, activism stuff to stop the mutilation of little girls in unhygienic conditions, etc- but I'm still curious about the "end result." What does a circ'ed woman's genitals look like?

Edited: This site is about atrocities in the middle east and Africa. It is very disturbing, so consider yourself warned. I can't look at it at all, to be honest.

One thing to remember, too, is that there is a wider spectrum of FGC methods than there is of MGC -- from Type 1, excision of the prepuce (clitoral hood) and possibly part of the clitoris, all the way to Type 4, Pharonic, which means the complete and total removal of the external genitalia. I don't know if the pictorial sites will have pictures of the less severe types (and I'm not going to go looking).

Editing because I just followed the link provided by Mcatlvrmomof2 and oh my gosh! That's horrible. I think it covers pretty much all types.

look on wickipedia under circ. There are pix of FGM where they only take the clitoral hood and inner labia. Looks really WRONG! But its comparable to male circ.

Thanks. You know, I don't have ANY photos on my site's FGM page. I think I'll put a link up! FGM pix are very difficult to find, for some reason.

I can see the thumbnails but when I click them it says "temp. unavailable- exceeded transfer limit". Do you have the photos saved anywhere?

It depends from the type of circ done to her. The pictures in above links show the most harmful type of circumcision.

Sometimes only clitoris is removed(or clitoral hood). Sometimes only ritual puncture is done to clitoris to get a drop of blood.

They have a couple pics on that circumcision information center or whatever the heck its called, website. You know, the one that says circing is common in Japan and is basically a circumfetish site? Yeah...I know one of the pics said "doesnt my girlfriend look so much better after her circ?" Um, EWWW NO!!!!

The one on the link named "20" that Melissa (MDCatlover) is the one that was on Wikepedia. That's inner labia and clitoral hood- essentially the equivialent of your typical male circ. Imagine having sex like that?!

:Puke

It always never seemed quite 'real' to me, in the sense that mgm was... I mean, not that I didn't believe something so horrific was done, but... it's like seeing video of an actual circ; you can't believe just HOW horrible until you see it.
