Worthy cause: Reconstructing the clitoris.

I was just reading that there's a charity (http://Clitoraid.org) which is building a clinic in Burkina Faso expressly for the purpose of restoring clitoral pleasure to Muslim women who have been mutilated by clitoridectomies.

Clitoraid raised more than $50,000 (U.S.) to build the facility and construction began in late April. They are planning on building more clinics.

I Googled medical procedures to reconstruct the clitoris and found that there really is an effective (90% satisfaction) surgical remedy to clitoridectomies.

If anybody is interested, check out Clitoraid.org. The site includes a video of the Clitoriad story.

Hey zeeman,

No, I didn't watch the video. I should have.

Yeah, Cliff,

That's one I made up. "A piston shy of a slide whistle" is a FreeThinkerism.

well, I've surely learned something new this day.

It's right there in the video on the page you linked us to. It's like the second sentence. Did you watch it?

Where did it say Clitoraid is connected to Raelians? And yes, the Raelians are definitely a piston shy of a slide whistle.

Seems like a worthy cause. I dunno; I'm a bit skeptical of anything having to do with the Raelians. Those people are as crazy as the Scientologists. LOL
