The country of Cameroon has problems with sexual assault, pregnancy, and STD’s, so to remedy the girls from being attractive to men they burn their breasts with hot stones. It is absolutely horrific to think of women having the circumcision, now they think it’s okay to burn these children, as young as nine, and leave them with painful lifelong scars. Some of the burns are life threatening.
One woman spoke out about why she thought the women burned her and she felt they should have just taught her what to do or not to do rather than leave her with these sickening scars that still hurt her many years later. The women are sacrificing their beautiful selves to not be attractive, but then there’s nothing left for them.
