Gentle reader, I want you to imagine what it is like to really badly hurt a woman, in such a way that she will never recover.
You are going to have to knock her out or tie her down. There is no way she will stay still otherwise while you do what you are going to do.
You are going to take a knife to her cunt. You are going to cut away her clit. Maybe her lips too. You are going to ensure that she will never take any pleasure in sex. The nasty little slut.
I do hope that you find this impossible to imagine yourself doing. I am ashamed that I am capable of imagining it being done.
I suspect that it is in fact illegal even to describe such matters. I think I have just committed a crime. But maybe not. Maybe there is some corner of the sicko novel market where such things are described for entertainment. American Psycho had some pretty nasty bits, and that was a literary novel. Certainly I've never seen any pornography anything like that, and I am certain that pictures or videos of such an act would be illegal and in the sense that sends people to jail and ruins their lives even if the pictures are fake and no other crime has in fact been committed, no innocent victim harmed.
What, I wonder, would be an appropriate penalty for someone who actually did this in real life? To an unwilling victim?
Imagine that someone did it to your girlfriend. Imagine someone did it to you.
What about someone who did it to a child? A little girl. Imagine the little girl you know best. Imagine that someone did it to her.
I hope you will agree with me that the only punishment which a sane and moral society could inflict on someone so twisted that they would commit this unspeakable, unthinkable atrocity is to hunt them down like a dog and torture them to death.
Quite seriously, I can't imagine any penalty, even a "quick" and "merciful" hanging, that would even begin to be the just deserts for this sickening, vicious, sadistic crime.
Apparently, I read in the Guardian, this has been done to something like 60,000 British women. Apparently there are another 24,000 potential victims 'at risk'.
Little girls. We are talking about little girls. We are talking about taking a knife to a little girl and cutting off bits of her cunt.
Why is this not the most important issue in our politics? What the fuck else could be even mildly important compared to this? To this horror. To this continuing, obscene horror?
I tell you what I would do, if I were dictator of England.
I would hunt down every perpetrator, every accomplice, everyone who has ever turned a blind eye, or failed to contact the police when they suspected this was going on. And I would torture them to death. Slowly and unpleasantly and publicly.
Paedophiles I would only hang. But for these people, what other sane response could there possibly be?
Reading back over this, I realise that I have been fooled. Obviously this is just the Guardian's little joke, an April Fool prank come early. It can't possibly be true. Ha Ha. Got me. Relax.
