Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a destructive, invasive procedure that is usually performed on girls before puberty. Part or all of the clitoris is surgically removed. This leaves them with reduced or no sexual feeling. Orgasms are sometimes impossible to experience later in life. Many health problems result from the surgery.
FGM originated in Africa. It was, and remains, a cultural, not a religious practice.
Among individuals and groups opposed to the mutilation, it is seen as a method of reducing the sexual response of women in order to make them less likely to become sexually active before marriage or to seek an extra-marital affair after marriage.
To some who promote the operation, it is seen as a cultural requirement that has health benefits and makes women more physically beautiful. These views are not shared by the rest of the world.
The operation is forced on approximately 6,000 girls per day, worldwide -- about one every 15 seconds. Since FGM is practiced when the girls are young, they are unable to give their informed consent.
A popular series of video-games developed by Konami. Considered to be extremely scary and psychologically disturbing. Each installment of the series goes for a different psychologically horrifying aspect.
Silent Hill 4: The Room is going to explore the theme of one's room. Conventionally thought of as a safe place, a sanctuary, but in Silent Hill 4 the lead character is trapped in his room by chains and bolts on the door and windows.
I personally don't find Silent Hill to be all that scary. I think it's very more fun and interesting, though it does have its scary moments.
