What's the craziest myth you've ever heard? 
When I was young we were told to never play with our shadows, because you'd dream of the devil,crazy huh!!!. You have no idea how many times God got my" please don't allow me dream of the devil" pleas after playing with my shadow. 😛😛😛. Then brag to my peers that I didn't dream of any devil....call me daring. 
Female Genital Mutilation as a social norm is based of myths and beliefs some so strong you be sanctioned. Family honour &  Social expectations play a POWERFUL role in perpetuating Female Genital Mutilation making it extremely difficult for individual families to stand up against it for fear of moral judgement and social sanctions.

The past week I learnt of the craziest myth ever in the Somali Community it is said that if a girl's clitoris isn't cut it will elongate to down to her legs and trip her if she walks. Who would want to walk around with a foot long Clitoris? I'd imagine a girl would ask....that's enough to convince her to undergo the cut mark you they practice Infubilation.

63 million girl have undergone FGM,How many more should before we end it.

‘Tradition is not a good enough reason’ @notestostrangers  This is so true of Female Genital Mutilation. #endFGM
FGM is supported by traditional beliefs, values and attitudes. In some communities it is valued as a rite of passage to womanhood. (for example in Kenya and Sierra Leone) Others value it as a means of preserving a girl’s virginity until marriage, (for example in Sudan, Egypt, and Somalia) In most of these countries FGM is a pre-requisite to marriage and marriage is vital to a woman’s social and economic survival. It is believed by some African women that if their daughters are not circumcised would not get husband. This (FGM) harmful tradition has been guided by taboos from generation by generation.  @hoda_m_ali_  #RAISEawareness #tradition #redbridgeyouthbus #culturalawareness #eastlondon #redbridgeyouth #cutting #stigma
