Do you participate in these circumcision procedures?

I'm sorry you were offended.

Had this been a cake shaped like a Swedish man with the attendees whacking into his penis we would have a parade of men on C-D calling the cake feminist, socialist and anti-male propaganda.

No there wouldn't.

But I'm sure you two would be the first to be laughing.

This whole cake incident smacks of the degradation that was thrust upon Sarah Baartman.

Europeans.

So which lucky person got to eat the mutilated vagina cake part?

Indeed. Very tasteless.
The Minister did: "She began, as instructed, by taking a chunk from the cake's "clitoris"." Happy Genital Mutilation Day, everyone!!!

That's part of the problem with the posters who think it is amusing and funny. Doubt they've even heard the word "hottentot."

Are you upset that I don't make a caricature of myself?

Very true.

The flesh of the Black woman is not considered sacred. It is considered public property. It is open and available to be touched, tasted, fondled, licked, groped, devoured by anyone who so desires. I am also not surprised by the posters who should know better because Black women have been devalued to the point where its now subconscious...so of course, "its ok to cut into a Black woman's vagina...why are you offended?"

We have such a long way to go.

If you believe this, then you should really like this art exhibition. It lampoons this.
