“When I was little there was no such thing as terrorism and there was no such thing as Female Genital Mutilation. I lived an oblivious, suburban life up until 1999, when I moved to Minneapolis, where I still reside today. I’ll never forget the day when Zuhar, my cousin and next-door neighbor, asked me if I was circumcised.”

Safy’s got a great tumblr, which I’ve been reading since her post about McSweeney’s White Savior Complex. Squee!
