Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation donates $50 million to fund the ‘voluntary’ mutilations of the genitals of 650,000 men in Swaziland and Zambia

Our thanks to Ian for this. It’s associated with a wider UN-driven campaign to ‘persuade’ 20 million men living in Sub-Saharan Africa to ‘voluntarily’ have their genitals mutilated in a probably futile bid to slow the progress of HIV. The evidence base on which this is being done has been widely discredited – William Collins’s piece on MGM covers the issue, see the section titled, ‘The WHO and HIV’ – but hey, it’s only men’s genitals which are being mutilated without any good reason, not women’s, so where’s the problem?

Let’s do a gender switch. Even if there were cast iron proof that FGM slowed the progress of HIV, would the UN be seeking to mutilate the genitals of 20 million African women? Would the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation be donating $50 million to fund the ‘voluntarily’ mutilation of the genitals of 20 million women living in Swaziland and Zambia? Of course not.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • it would be interesting to know whether Bill Gates and his wife have both had their genitals voluntarily mutilated,so as to lead by example.

  • I know he is no longer running Microsoft but Windows 10 should be boycotted until they distance themselves from this disgraceful action by Bill Gates and his wife. Any one with twitter please start #mengelegates Experimenting on men.

    Hillary Clinton too, has pledged US taxpayers’ money to this African mass mutilation.

  • it’s amazing that western women lobby so hard to stop female genital mitilation and at the same time lobby hard to finance male genital mutilations…some hypocricy,I would think….
    It does not seem our women and feminists have men’s best interests at heart and our gentlemen need to pay attantion to what’s happening,before they extend their lavish treatment on our dishonist,feminized and basically anti-men women.
