This campaign/petition, seeks to correct UK government's misrepresentation of adult women choosing to have genital body piercing as "female genital mutilation" (FGM).
Controlling an adult UK woman's sovereignty over her own body is both unfair and sexist.
We demand immediate clarification in the laws and policies around the issue of FGM.
Popular western adult female practices such as professional body piercing, cosmetic surgery and beauty treatment were never intended to be the target of United Nations' campaign against third world traditional people's practices of female genital mutilation on young girls.
The UK government's interpreting the UN's "piercing" to mutilate the genitals as "professional body piercing" is a gross misunderstanding of what FGM really is.
