Female Genital Mutilation and Routine Infant Circumcision April 21, 2007 1:13 AM
Let me introduce myself. I am Khira West, aka Medicine Dog, aka Sarsaparilla Catt, aka Spicedbuddha. At Myspace my name is Ivy_Long.
I am here because I care for children, being an "honorary child" myself.
And I had a motorcycle for a short time, and I love to ride, and I love bikers, the kind with tattoos and the kind without. Did you know that like 88% of bikers appreciate poetry, as opposed to a much lower percent among ordinary people? I read and write poetry, so I really dig that sentiment.
I would like to share my knowledge and experiences from Rainbow Gatherings, put on by The Rainbow Family of Living Light. We have a Kiddie Village, and it is teeming with joy and life.
Also, I am here to share my latest cause: Female Genetic Mutilation and Routine Infant Circumcision. I am greatly concerned and horrified at this barbaric practice. I could hardly rest yesterday as I was laying down to sleep thinking about this, after having viewed the two groups on these topics. I WILL contribute, and I will do everything I can to see that this atrocity ends forever!!!!! I am a great Ideas Person and have been able to come up with creative solutions for other issues. I'm a writer, and plan to study Journalism at San Jose State University. Hopefully my new-found skills when I learn them will help me better serve my causes. I thank those groups for putting this issue bluntly in front of the people. I am sharing this with other Child Rights groups. I know people in this group care, and will pitch in to help in whatever way they can. I wish us luck. Your friend, Khira.
