That vine one is pretty intense for number 5, 4 inches could seperate you from death. At least even after your manhood is poked an extra hole your still alive, albeit it would be extremely painful, but that crocodile scarring someone posted looks like its alot more painnful

lol but the thing is, over in areas that messed up, woman may give birth to around 8 kids. :P

Anyway, I sort of like the whole period thing compared to getting your wee drilled. I mean, at least we have some pills to help ease the cramps. You can`t even scream with #4.(call me a geek, but I don`t need birth control. I`m only 13.)

My parents used to have some datura in their front yard. On summer nights their smell would fill the air. they take over gardens though, so my mom took them out. A bunch of kids around here died from eating the seeds.

I don`t know why, but I every time I see something like this, like the one with the poision from the cute little frog, I think, "what if they never actually do that in the tribe and only do that to the outsiders for giggles and tell them it`s a, "ritual" that they just HAVE to be a part of? I have weird thoughts.

Female genital mutilation is to keep women from enjoying sex and to make it more pleasurable for the man. Since the vagina is "dirty" and women are unclean, it`s just to keep them from wanting sex (since they`re in too much pain) so that some stupid man will marry her knowing she`s a virgin and `clean`.

For everyone saying you`re glad you`re a girl, you should be glad you`re a girl only where you live. Sure the things these men (boys) have to do is terrible, but where they`re living, the women are not even considered people. Rather, they`re things to be owned or sold. Sorry to bring everyone down, but I didn`t find it entertaining to read that, I just found it sad that people grow up and are expected to do these things. Sigh. The world sucks.

"I think I`d rather *not* reach manhood. Can`t be all that bad, can it? I mean, it`s better than poking a HOLE in your PENIS! So glad I`m a girl. Sooooo glad."

Some girls have to go through a painful ritual of getting the clitoris cut off as a transition into womenhood. That`s just as bad.


Cruxshadows: "And the most least obvious one, women feel emotions hard while men just seem to shrug about emotional pain and move on. Yes, i did just get dumped. Yes, i am bitter."

I can shrug off emotional pain. Btw, I love the band too.

I watched the throwing-up-from-frog-poison bit... Not too bad to watch, but probably pretty bad to go through. I could do it; I once threw up about 15 times in 90 minutes.

"Once the Hamar boy passes the cow-jumping test, he earns the respect given to a man and also becomes a eligible to participate in the Hamar women-beating ceremony, where the girls of Hamar happily volunteer to prove their devotion to their husbands by being ceremonially hit and whipped."

That`s horrible! Women aren`t objects that belong to men!

female cicumsion is basically the removal of the clitoras nd tht poo. then the fanny is sewwed up rly tight so losing ur virginity is rly painful. it is meant to keep u faithful and a virgin till marriage. all this done by ur own mother

my drama teacher is a bit weird, she tells us random poo

i LOVE how girls really dont have to do jackpoo. Yea, we get our periods and possibly birth a kid or two, but we can at least show pain in the process. NO ONE will tell a woman that she is less of a women if she screams during child birth. It just doesnt happen

Question.. someone mentioned female circumsision being about making a girl tighter... I heard that the point of it was so that women didn`t enjoy sex, and so would be faithful to their husbands.. A lot of rituals involving women in other cultures are to keep them subservient and "faithful"..

Psh, men actually have it quite easy i think! Ill give you some examples.
Firstly, the most obvious one: PMS. I`m only 19 and Im already getting sick of unbearable cramps for 5 days straight every month, also, bleeding everywhere becomes quite stinky and irritating.
Secondly, child birth. Ive never experienced it, nor do I want. C section please!
And the most least obvious one, women feel emotions hard while men just seem to shrug about emotional pain and move on. Yes, i did just get dumped. Yes, i am bitter.

I remember seeing all of those a few years back on the Discovery Channel. Very interesting indeed. I`m surprised the "crocidile" or "alligator" (don`t remember which) isn`t in there. That one looked painful as f-ck.

actually, I think the worst for girls, apart from getting your period [which is not as bad as some people make out. different women have different pain], would be female circumcision, or genital cutting. Happens between 5-10, and is practised to make the girl `tighter` for men, so she will get a better husband. Something like that.

The 1º was not that bad... And i actually just vomit once during the ritual. And now i`m a man (18-29)

Ok, just kidding... But the penis whistle was to be the worst. I Wonder how many times they had to do it until it worked the way they wanted.

I remember reading an anthropological study of this somewhere before and the whole idea behind it was these violent rites are supposed to be an imitation of menstruation. I know, sounds crazy at first but think about this for a sec.

All a woman has to do to become a woman is wait for her menarche, she simply waits and life sort of overtakes her on its own. When ancient men saw the bloodshed of menstruation they became jealous of this bleeding that did not cause death and decided that they needed a "red badge of courage" for men that they could call their own. The author of the study {male BTW} called this form of male jealousy NMS, or non menstrual syndrome. Whadyya think of that?
