It’s hard to shock me these days, after spending years working on Skid Row, in Jail, with violent offenders, sexually violent predators, with women who are victims of DV, former prostitutes and the co-occurring (drug & alcohol addiction + a, or several, mental health diagnosis), and finally military veterans (very similar to the prison population actually, IMHO).
But. It’s not impossible. And Sweden’s new FGM cake, complete with a live head that “acts” the agony of the girl being circumcized as the cake is cut into - wowzers. Sweden, you have shocked me today.
However, as commenter Lars-Erik Franson points out:
That the man who made the cake is the Afros-swede Makode Aj Linde.
So before anyone else starts complaining about how a Swedish man could do such a thing maybe you should find out who he is:
It’s true I don’t know anything about who made the cake and haven’t read about him yet, but Franson included a link to the tumblr account that explains who this cake designer was. I’m going to check that out as soon as I finish reading more about this issue with Australia (see previous post).
